Another interesting read are Cod's ramblings on colonization, mentioning both the fact Siam/Thailand was never colonized and how proud the Thais are of this, but also the less-known internal colonization done by the central government to the outlying areas of Pattani or in the Issaan.
And finally to return some link-love, Angloinfo has a page where they collected addresses of local government offices in Phuket and adjoining Phang Nga and Krabi provinces. Probably useful for the expats living in the area, and since they listed my blog as the resource for more detailed information on the administrative system I get occasional visitors from that site.
