Introducing our Web Solutions to Dr. Thaksin Shinawatra, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Thailand

The Internet established our Thai Internet business in September 1994 with the aim of providing creative and innovative internet solutions for companies in the Kingdom of Thailand wanting to take advantage of opportunities brought on.

It was founded by Wolfgang Holzem and has since grown to become one of Thailand’s most successful website in terms of Internet traffic and Internet awareness.

SiamNET was merged with Asiarooms.com in 1996 and sold to TUI Travel Group PLC in 2006. Most content of sino.net which was known as Trade Online Limited (TOL) was merged into this website in early 2000.

All content with Asiarooms.com was merged soon after with Isaan.live. Asiarooms.com now operates as Laterooms.com but they have abandoned the Asia Pacific market and only focus on the European market with no interest in launching any local language versions in the Asia Pacific region.

Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of any web solution.
