IT'S ALL ONLINE

Accor's accorhotels.com website allows you to book a room in any of the group's hotels worldwide, including Sofitel, Pull-man, Mercure, Novotel, Suitehotel, All Seasons, Ibis and Etap hotels. "The new system provides attractive and personalised information to ensure customer satisfaction," said Jean-Luc Chretien, executive vice-president of marketing and distribution. The website offers a map showing hotel locations and an advanced search engine enabling users to refine their search using criteria such as budget and the presence of a car park or a swimming pool. There are also videos and tourist guides.

A HELPING HAND

Singapore Airlines has donated supplies for 210 students and contributed 210,000 baht to a school in Chanthaburi as part of its Smile Together charity project.
The Singapore Airlines Border Patrol Police School under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn was partly built by Singapore Airlines in 1999 in Nong Bon village in Chanthaburi's Soi Dao district. The airline has continued to maintain the school to promote education in the provincial city.

A FOREST IN THE MAKING

Staff and executives of Laguna Phuket Resorts and Hotels have planted 2,500 mangrove saplings in Phuket at the Ban Aow Nam Bor coastal area in Muang district.
The event was part of the company's annual tree planting programme to raise awareness of global warming and to mark the recent National Tree Planting Day.
