Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. Thanks, i'm going back to the States for 3 weeks in July. Hate to blow 20k for useless insurance valid for 4 months but hopefully my last trip back.
  2. Before i had a live in GF Thai friendly was my mainstay. 1,200-2000 all in. At one time i had 6 regulars. Too many. It takes a bit of work and screening. Was talking with a great lady talking about what we wanted. She replied "a relationship".I started to end the conversation then she wrote "or a customer". She always stayed LT. We were together for almost 2 years before she headed back to the farm.
  3. Rhodie, i assume this was a tourist conversion, not O-A?
  4. Prices in Thailand have always amazed me. I have been coming here for 15 years. I paid the same now for Areca as i did years ago. The pizza hotel on Diana is nice and only 500 baht. My rent has never gone up. I went to a girl's room on Soi 6 above a coffee shop. She pays 2k a month, has air con, shower and cleaning. Baht buses still 10. Taxis are much cheaper though that will change when the tourist return. Bar fines have increased and i dont like to cheat the owners but when they get to 1,000 baht line numbers are often exchanged. Usually the girls suggestion. I wouldn't argue tallguy's p
  5. Just keeping the riff raff out Jacko. The beach security at Centara wouldn't let me in even though i live close by and told them i have lunch at Oasis. Next time your in the neighborhood ill pick you up in my kayak near Dolphin and have lunch at Surf &Turf.
  6. Beautiful tree. The Condo complex where i live has several Rai attended to by Noongnuch Gardens and another company. They remove the dead limbs with long shears. Im sure they can advise the spray though i have not seen them using it. Its Saturday so they are not on site but will have my GF ask them. Broughton , any pictures of the rest of your land?
  7. I don't think so. Agents are legal as to current rules. But rules are not laws and can change overnight. The Visa run guys years ago were fine until Immigration said no more. The only ones who were red stamped were the ones who continued doing runs from Swampy. Even they got one chance to do the paper work themselves, use an agent or get a Thai Elite card. But TIT so have plan B. My plan "e" is to abscond to my GF's farm in Issan and screw my American passport and Th. immigration. Which reminds me i need to put a western toilet up there.
  8. Use an agent. My close friend in Bangkok is an Agent and i can refer you if you like. I don't use him because he is too expensive. Does a lot of hand holding with younger clients. I was at lunch sitting off to the side while he met with a customer. The client asked if he would have access to the 800k loan. I nearly yelled of course not. But if Thailand is your home have a plan B . I remember when there was a Visa run Van and Kiosk on every Soi. Gone overnight. Force replied while i was typing this. Manareet is tops.
  9. Tom, not a bad idea to look up also. had a snake fall out of a tree at the Avenue.
  10. Leaving Villa Market very careful at crossing the side walk to 2cd road. Once at the road all clear left/right. Almost took out an old guy slowly riding his bicycle on the roadway the wrong way. Didnt matter right or wrong way he blended in with the parked cars. I was to focused on the left after checking motorcycles and pedestrians.
  11. Saw a post recently. Guy is making a legal left turn, fully stopped, turn signal on. Kid on a motorbike not looking clips him coming out of the side Soi. Everyone is ok. Insurance agent arrives and pays the kid. The Farang protests why did you pay it was not my fault? It is explained that you have a car, you are a farang and if you were not making a turn the accident would not have happened. For all our criticism of driving here i find the Thais are to polite. They yield when they have the right of way. In America this is a rear ender. I travel the Dolphin roundabout frequently and as Forc
  12. i am my worst enemy as im lazy. Spent 20k last night in Bangkok and didnt get laid. But this accounting does piss me off. I will talk with BB tomorrow since i have the monthly transfer. if no resolution im moving to Schwab. i made my rent for a year investing in Conoco Philips with Schwab. I am not a financial genius. Pussy and Rum takes most of it.
  13. Agree here. If i have been out on a tear the night before i'll take a bolt to Villa even if sober in the AM. They wait, drive me back to the condo and help with the bags.
  14. Nice to see pilots actually flying in the age of auto everything. My instructor had me landing in a very small windy 30% Iced strip. I did ask why as it seemed not that safe and i would never fly in these conditions, i was not a professional pilot. "If your family is in the back, now you will know how". Outstanding Swedish Instructor.
  15. Been using Nams for years now. I was very critical of new Taxi services as they start great then fail with success . Nams had been the only outlier. I have been using Miss Taen from Nams for 2 years. Comfortable Suv. There is no place she cant find
