  1. Yes that's the word I believe, thanks. I found Signature under Settings.
  2. How do we go about adding content below every post of our own that appears automatically?

  4. VT6 is nice but the rentals are way over priced.
  5. The way things are going the USD will be below $30, the AUD under $20 and the EUR under 34. What is amazing is that you'll still get guys saying "oh, it's not that much of a difference". In fact, they'll say that even when 1 USD buys 2 baht : "Hey, don't worry, it's two for one".
  6. I'm afraid that the decline of the big spending tourist, as a result of the strengthening baht, will be a shock to the economy of Pattaya larger than we expect and they anticipate. Once something starts, it's hard to reverse the trend. People will go elsewhere and find other things to do with their money.
  7. ^ Holy heavens man, are you good or what? I thought I was good but came up broke after about 20 minutes of searching "pbc pattaya" and even using google maps to find it. Thanks. The place caught my eye earlier in the day while I was looking at another condo. But I couldn't find it for the life of me. May I ask how you found it, because the "pbc pattaya" search didn't work for me under both the web and images categories? Btw, I just did a little searching about the place and what a disappointment. The outsides look spectacular but everything else seems to be horrible, according to the reviews. What a let down, for I like the location.
  8. Does anyone know where this hotel or condo is located?
  9. July 5, another tourist is dead after a "fall" at VT1 while being shown rooms for rent, the third in two months. Can't identify the victim like so many cases, b/c the wallet is missing. What a coincidence. Btw, what I want to know is the current bb rate cut on these suspicious deaths? https://www.pattayaone.news/foreigner-falls-his-death-view-talay/
  10. Can someone update us regarding the new building on South Pattaya Road. I believe it is beside Friendship Market.
  11. It sounds as though you have a hate on for the western world and anything it represents. If that is the case, you should be living in a third world country. And I'm not sure how wearing safety clothing is related to the tourist industry. Please explain, will you?
  12. It's amazing yet sad to see these men and women working heavy construction in nothing more than slippers/sandals/flip flops on their feet and no hard hat on their head. The western world is still half a century ahead of Thailand in terms of safety and working conditions.
  13. There are many hotels that compete with AirBnB on price for the long term.
  14. E.P. ... thank you for the comprehensive reply. Some very good advice. I stay away from any uncooked food such as veggies on vacation. I often live on a simple diet - bananas, apples, freshly cooked eggs and bread - when traveling to avoid sickness. Nothing ruins a trip more than falling ill from food poisoning. But the pictures of your meals are mouth watering and I feel I'm missing out, particularly when Thailand is so well known internationally for great cuisine. Cheers.
