    Nam's Taxi, Lady Driver

    I used Nam's lady taxi service for the first time in January this year after getting a recommendation from a BM on this forum. Good service. They replied straight away to my email booking and gave instructions as to where to meet at the airport. Sure enough my lady driver was waiting. Nice safe drive down to Pattaya and plenty of water bottles in the car, which looked pretty new. 1200 baht inc tolls I have booked them again for when I arrive next week on the strength of my last journey with them from BKK airport to Pattaya.

    Yep, Fiendship sells Asia Gold along with many other brands of Rolling Tobacco. Asia Gold is Thai but the nearest to Golden Virginia in taste and quality etc, Turn right from 2nd Road into Klang and its just on the left. I went to Pattaya via Dubai recently and a box of Golden Virginia (5x50grams) was £20.37p which showed up on my card statement. That is the cheapest I have bought it at.

    Best value SIM card for tourists

    Last time, I went to one of the stands at the airport only to realise that the phone I handed to here was locked to Vodafone. They could not unlock it. Hence my reason for going to Tuk Com nearby where I was staying and they have lots of phone places there where I could get my phone unlocked and then buy a SIM deal, but cant remember what it was, but after a week I ran out of Data, I am assuming Wifi will be OK were I am staying but I will be using mini lap top for internet access .
  8. I am off to Pattaya in a few days and will need a new SIM card. Will wait till I get to Pattaya and go to Tuc Com but what is the best SIM deal for a month ? Lots of different choices these days it seems with combination of minutes, texts and data etc.

    Emirates ex Stansted

    I am flying with Emirates from Gatwick in a couple of weeks time. Only 15 minutes from East Croydon station. Stanstead good for those who live further out of the way.

    BA Business class

    I have flown BA Club Class 4 times now. The planes looking a bit shabby along with the flight crew, but on the whole it was OK. Plenty to drink and food not bad. Not worth the money though really. Its nice to stretch out though for a sleep with a constant supply of JDs, but then you can do that in any Business Class But I got mine through BA staff staff travel and therefore cannot complain.
  11. I have been to Pattaya City Hospital a couple of times for minor ailments. Did not have to wait long to be seen and only charged for medication. It serves a purpose.

    Cigarette imports

    They wont be cheap at LHR for countries outside of EU and would be cheaper to buy them in Thailand You are allowed 200 in at BKK as far as I am aware, but if you get stopped with more, you could be fined If you are flying with a stopover , like Dubai etc, then they are far cheaper there in the duty free lounge. . Then up to you to decide whether you want to risk taking them through customs at BKK if over 200 (i carton) Like customs at all airports, not everyone is checked and more than not most walk through the green zones without being searched at BKK , But sure, if they catch you with excess they could arrest you, but more likely to slap a fine
