The clever yellow postbox

In Thailand, mailboxes are red – except in Pitsanulok.

There are now 15 brand-new yellow postboxes in the province.

They are smart too. They are so smart that in Thai they are called Pee Too Roo Tuuk Rueng (the box knows everything).

Each of these clever boxes has information for tourists, such places to visit, restaurants, souvenir shops and local product shops.

I wonder if all mailboxes in Thailand will someday be yellow and smart.
