The Pathumwan district office in central Bangkok has created a lunchtime "nap room" in the belief that allowing government workers to catch some sleep in the afternoon will increase productivity. The room is filled with soft music and sweet-smelling flowers to induce a visit by Mr. Sandman. Of 200 employees at the office, there are about 20 regular nappers who report feeling "fresher and brighter" after a midday snooze.
