Leading Chinese Internet company Baidu ranks as the fourth most popular Internet site in Thailand a year after its launch, according to Thai metrics provider Truehits.net.

With the slogan “Everyone starts online here,” Hao123 serves as a Web directory that gathers and categorizes popular sites, ranging from entertainment to sports to technology.

Hao123 received a very warm welcome from Thai users right after its launch in the fall of 2011, because it fulfills the needs of both new and experienced Internet users, allowing them to get where they’re going more conveniently. For newer Internet users, Hao123 puts curated websites and content at their fingertips. For veteran users, Hao123 provides a convenient and safe gateway to their favorite sites.
