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. I've just looked at a recent bill and am paying 4.02 baht per unit. I have 2 units and rarely use my aircon. I have 2 rooms and my bill is usually just under 1,000 baht and a bit over 1,000 baht in the hot season when I do use the aircon a bit more. Alan
  2. This may be totally wrong, but I was told that Niels Colov's father-in-law has a great deal of influence in the right places. Alan
  3. This must be an American thing as when I flew to Macau in the middle of last month I just had the standard security check immediately after Immigration. Alan
  4. Some houses across from where I live have small solar panels. but they seem to be rather small to me to provide sufficient electricity, but I could be wrong. I did wonder briefly about the feasibility about installing solar panels on the roof of the condo where I live but after some ultra basic computations I quickly came to the view that the amount of electricity they would produce would be minimal compared to our needs - and that was without considering the cost of installing and maintaining them.

  5. And an alien abducted me last night and gave me the power to shag non stop for 10 hours at a time. Alan
  6. I hear Zimbabwe is the next safe haven for your money. Nowhere is immune from the current recession. Alan
  7. For your first application, the funds must have been in the account for a minimum period of 60 days and 90 days for subsequent renewals. I remit funds once or twice a year and use the funds to live on. I believe that it's very difficult for a foreigner to open a current account so you have no option but to open a savings account. Some people have been able to extend their visa by having the funds in a longer term savings account but there's no guarantee that Immigration will accept this for you. Once you have your visa, you could put the funds into a longer term savings account. Al
  8. The answer's simple. If yuo want to stay for more than 30 days, GET A FUCKING VISA before arriving. I think the Thai government are trying to piss off those cunts who abuse the system and work here without the appropriate visa and work permit. I would have no hesitation in deporting them and banning them from ever returning. Alan
  9. Absolutely correct. And it's not that difficult to have your papers in order. The 90 day reporting only takes a few minutes and as someone else suggested, can be done by someone else on your behalf if you're ill or in hospital. Incidentally, when you do your 90 day reporting Immigration in Pattaya want to see some evidence of your address. A telephone bill etc is sufficient. I took a copy as well as the original - they kept the copy. Alan
  10. When I lived in Edinburgh, I had cable TV and a telephone line from Telewest. One day, I was having problems with the phone line - hence problems with the internet. The stupid bitch at the Telewest call cantre maintained that if I could use the phone, there was nothing wrong with the line. However, an engineer came out and guess what? He found water in one of their underground fixtures and that was causing the problems with my phone line. Alan
  11. I switched to TT&T a few months ago and so far it has been much more reliable than TOT. It was slow earlier tonight though I'm not sure whether that was TT&T's fault or the general internet out of Thailand. Alan
  12. Linda's restaurant on Thappraya Road (just past the entrance to View Talay 2) serves a very nice pepper steak - though it's not cheap. A bit over 400 baht for the steak, baked potato and salad. Alan
  13. I stayed at Flamingos back in February. The hotel was fine despite the fact that I managed to cock up my dates. (my fault, which necessitated a change of room after 2 nights). They will pick you up from the airport. Fortunately, someone else on my flight was staying there so despite the cock up with the dates I got to the hotel without any problems. I got a Vietnamese freelancer from the Walkabout Bar - turn left when you exit the hotel and turn left again on to Street 51. Alan
