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 heard about all the taxi scams at the Phuket airport, does anyone know what a fair price is for a taxi from the airport to the Best Western Patong Beach Hotel?
  2. I have TOT internet package for my computer, fiber fast, I bough a wifi box (from TOT) for 1000 baht so I could use my phone and table. I only pay 525 baht a month.
  3. Beware don't trust the star reviews, read them yourself. I was booking a taxi service for friends coming over and the taxi service had a 3.5 rating, I looked at their reviews and they had 13 5-stars and 3 4-star, 2 poor and 11 terrible, 9 out of the 11 was for taxi no shows and 2 was for taxi drivers who wanted more money when they came. Who would book a taxi service like this but they have a 3.5 rating??
  4. It might help the trash in the drain problem if they would put some trash cans around on the sidewalks so people don't have to throw trash on street. I know many people won't use them anyway but many would.
  5. Before I was pestered a lot by DVD sellers when I was eating and I didn't like it and one day a guy told me, you have to remember that these people are just trying to make a living, it's better if they sell something than them out robbing people.
  6. I think that is going take a little more than duck tape!
  7. Did anyone recently stay at Nana Hotel? Years ago it was turning into a dump, Did a new owner take it over? The internet has it as a 3.5 star hotel now?
  8. Not to get off topic but a few years ago a few Taxi services came out and said under the new Taxi rules they no longer can service Don Mueang airport. Did they change the rules?

    Visa stamp

    That just shows that there is no set rules for immigration offices, but I didn't mind paying the 300 baht because I gave the lady the 2 passports and in 5 minutes she gave them back done.

    Visa stamp

    I just got a new passport, I had to do my 90 day check in today so I asked them to put the Visa stamps into my new passport, no problem they did it and charged me 300baht for doing it.
  11. If anyone is planing a trip to Thailand soon make SURE you check out the hotels website for rates before booking with a agent. I checked a hotel website I liked in Pattaya for there rates for a room, then I checked a agent (agoda) for there's rates to see if cheaper and the agent wanted 300baht more a night for the same room. The Hotels is lowering there rates for business.

  15. What happen to the I-Rovers camera showing soi LK, it's been down for a few weeks now?
  16. I know what your saying, I tried for a few years and just gave up on logic, now I just say OK
  17. That is the way Thais walk on the roads with traffic to there backs, the first time I walked with wife on a road I told her we are walking on the wrong side of the road we should be facing the traffic, she said NO if you have a accident on that side of the road the insurance won't pay.
  18. I just registered and no problems, they send a e-mail and I filled it out and submit it, got a reply I was registered all done in 10 minutes. Time will tell if it did any good!!
  19. I bet Megan was all smiles when CBS paid her 7 million for that interview! ( from CNN before it was aired. )
  20. Now you have to pay for your luggage when taking a taxi https://thethaiger.com/news/bangkok/taxi-drivers-in-bangkok-can-now-charge-handling-fees-for-luggage
  21. I went today and got a new drivers licence again, everything was the same but no brake reaction test but had two eye color test and had to watch that video again. I only payed 505 bath this time.
