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. The government complex at Chaengwattana. You'll need copies of your passport photo page and all relevant stamps/TM6, a TM 7 application form and 1,900 Baht.
  2. No such excuses are offered for Martinez ... it's not as if Tim Howard, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Tony Hibbert, Gareth Barry, Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar are spring chickens.
  3. Seems to be more a case of three teams can still throw it away. Liverpool appears to have the easiest run-in ... can they hold their nerve when it gets to "squeeky bum time"? Can Chelsea do without Willian and Ramires against Arsenal? As for relegation ... I hope WBA go down - som nam na, and all that!
  4. It sells motorcycle bits and pieces apparently. To be fair, I think BigD mentioned that he wears his Snell approved helmet when he's driving his invalid scooter thingie around Pattaya.
  5. Curtains with reflective linings might be worth considering if you're only renting. At least there's a decent chance you'll be able to use them again if and when you move.
  6. I listened to (and read) his statement). He (the PM) went on to say, "Despite media reports that the plane was hijacked, I wish to be very clear: we are still investigating all possibilities as to what caused MH370 to deviate from its original flight path." I take that to mean hijacking is one possibility.
  7. From the Malaysian PM's live broadcast ... "Despite media reports that the plane was hijacked, I wish to be very clear: we are still investigating all possibilities as to what caused MH370 to deviate from its original flight path." Has that position changed?
  8. New prices - and the good news is that they are (a lot) less than they were previously. I have to apply for a new 'thickie' next month (down from 154.50 to 91 quid) so the new prices are a welcome bonus.
  9. You mean only the folk who can afford to ...
  10. It has now reappeared in the schedules - with a 24 April screening date. We'll see ....
  11. Isn't the Shark factory just down the road from Pattaya? Any decent independent bike shop should be able to get you a good helmet. If you want to see what's available in Thailand, check out helmet2home.com. Not all are near useless or crap.
  12. That's precisely why I want to give them a try - they are offering HDY-HHQ for THB 2.2k return (all inclusive). That's a good deal - before they bin the route.
  13. From what I've read, the two guys arrived in KL from Tehran on 28 Feb, and then bought the two stolen passports in KL. It's amazing that they haven't found anything ... the "abducted by aliens" theory is gaining credibility by the day. Edit: Just read the report that says at least one of the two travelled from Phuket.
  14. The AF aircraft was 10,000 feet below the surface ... that's obviously not going to be the the case in the Gulf of Thailand or South China Sea.
  15. I'm using them to fly back from BKK to HDY at the end of the month - anyone used them or have any info.
  16. My shopping list .... PCX 150, 30 ltr Givi box, helmet, sunglasses, uprated rear shocks, customised seat for a fat farang ass, stabilisers and farang-size rainsuit. Cheaper than the cost of a return flight to the UK. Seriously, I'd rent from the Pool Hustler guy who advertises on the forum ... see which bike suits you best. The Honda SH150 might be better suited to Pattaya if the cost isn't an issue.
  17. Likewise. And it has disappeared from both SF and Major's websites.
  18. There was a situation a few years ago when the soapies were having to truck in water. Many of the girls left to work elsewhere because of the (poor) quality of the water.
  19. Only one that comes via Thailand Post - 3BB internet. I probably could choose to do away with receiving that if I delved into the customer service info.
  20. Occasionally, my bill comes a month late via some other address from the same postal address sequence, e.g. 153/1107 rather than 153/1101. No big deal - I generally pay my bill at one of the many 3BB counters simply by giving them my account number.
  21. The (Hyatt) Pattaya Palace ... an important part of Pattaya's history - good to see it has been retained.
  22. It's a short joke. It's a review of Hotel Selection.
