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. If you hire a baht bus you can sit up front with no bouncing about too... I'd be interested to hear back on the health check price too ...
  2. There and back ..?? If the price is the same then sure I'd do the same...
  3. Where in Pattaya do you wish to depart from? The blue, and white baht buses stop all along sukhumvit. If it is not too far from where you live go check them out a few days in advance to ease your concern about what might happen "on the day".....My biggest concern is that Sod's Law states that when you don't want one it will be empty but when it is absolutely essential they will all be full ... If baht buses are not a problem over that distance why not hire one for the day so that you are in complete control door to door and back again....???
  4. Gone are the days of me drinking real wine. I refer to 2 off licenses that sell cheap fruit wine. There are many spread all over every town in Thailand. These just happen to be on my normal route. Nothing special about the shops and nothing special about the "wines" .. My regular place back in the day was Villa Market on Suk 33/1...They had average wines on the shelves downstairs but upstairs (next to a card shop if I recall correctly) is where they kept the "good" stuff..I bloody loved that shop. It was open 24 hours and if I was on a long weekend break from work I'd stock up on frozen lamb and head off home to Surin...Grand old days.....Don't go near Villa Market nowadays.. I want to say more but it would be totally off topic...
  5. The Power of Pattaya Talk.!!! I just popped out and it is now down to a slight drizzle and the "storm drain" that handles runoff from Khao Talo is very low and very slow. I'm gonna have a quick squaddie wash then should be at my wine shop when it opens....
  6. Yep ...it is a constant shower at the moment ...not that hard but hard enough to stop me going out to my wine shop ... Thursday night was worse over this way.. But added together surely there must be some improvement in the water level...
  7. I was there around 08:30 when an unladen low loader pulled up outside. By the looks of your photos it didn't take much away...!!
  8. 5. At breakfast do not talk to, acknowledge the presence of, or dare to look into the eyes of, a smoker until they are on their fifth cigarette .......And even then do not put a runny egg in your mouth if you suspect that they are going to cough up a mouthfull of phlem and swallow it back ....
  9. I couldn't work out if there was pork belly or noodles in it either ..... but no fuck though ... (pumpkin)
  10. Totally agree.... If I may generalise ...some people say "rent don't buy" but are happy to keep 800,000 in the bank which ....at a moments notice ...can be locked down or increased by an edict from an over zealous xenophobe... AT ANY TIME! We are lucky in Pattaya that we have access to alternative methods and I have a tremendous empathy with expats living 2 or more hours drive from an IO and with very few options but to jump through hoops .....Been there done that! As the thread title says "The screws keep on turning" ........ but at least here they can be greased a little ....
  11. Another way that I started to spend less (apart from flying at the back nowadays) was using National coaches on the UK part of the journey ... same same but different ...
  12. Fuck knows ..... "Guay tieow pak mai sai nam dok" ...??
  13. Fantastic story mate..!!
  14. The morning that I read Jacko's question I walked passed the agency I use and popped in... "nothing changed" was their reply but because it didn't fit with the question I didn't reply...
  15. I have never been involved in kerb work before, just several thousand telecomms towers worldwide so was just guessing really ......
  16. Shit yeh....whenever I read yet another pompous arse on Thaivisa saying that his wife is a highly paid office Manager or runs a succesful busines blah blah blah and why do farangs marry bar girls I think back to the financial crash in '98 when they all scurried to the bars to take it up ass for 500 baht....
  17. I really am pleasantly surprised! We had a total shitfest with flooding after Sunday's downpour...We even had some during the night...but it doesn't seem that adversely effected...
  18. You would think that the primary high pressure foam would be directed at the heat source. Shit it wouldn't take much Engineering with directional hoses/flexible tubes to do that...And Secondary "volume" in the surrounding area.. Perhaps that's how it works , but in this case there was no heat source... Cleverer (and more sober) people have designed this so I'll just shut up and go to the fridge..
  19. Please be informed that no aircraft were harmed in the making of this video ...
  20. Jeeez how the hell did you find this ?... and give me more please ...! The original was written by his Father apparantly. His Father was a classical composer that said the he could write any punk shit and it would be a hit..... Can't be assed to google it .... but that is the way I remember it... By "his" I meant Plastic Bertrand of course...
