  1. Do you think anyone in Pattaya has consulted a civil engineer , you know someone who can predict the actions of the seas when the headland is changed . Looking at what is happening when the flooding comes its pretty clear no one has or they didn't listen . I would say they need to build a reef a couple of hundred feet out from the beach to stop the tides undermining all the work they are trying to do and a couple of Irish foremen to make sure the work is actually carried out to a decent standard , which from the pictures is not the case. 10 for effort 1 for what actually got done.
  2. I understand the urge to save money I am a Scot so tight with a penny , pounds get treated with reverence, but There are reasons why people are not en mass traveling to the places you are thinking of . That reason is for the long run there is a much better western type infrastructure in Thailand than in any of the countries you mention and whilst it might be a little less expensive over a short break it is much more relaxing for the long run to be in Pattaya . I stay for a minimum 1 month and often much longer , up to 4 and a half months, and whilst I could save money traveling elsewhere I would not get the same vibe or treatment I can get in Pattaya
  3. How much cheaper can flights get ?. unless you mean the expensive end of the planes which so few of us have ever tasted, but seriously flying is so cheap now how do you make it cheaper.
  4. I Have recently seen in the US a movie called , The Green Book, I have no interest in this movie other than I loved it and am urging all my friends and family to go see it. The Actors have faces I recognise but no big stars and the story is not action filled as is my general first requirement but this is bar none the best movie I have seen this or last year, I gave it 10/10
  5. Hi All I see more and more adds for Voice translators and wondered , as many of those advertised get awful reviews, if anyone has one that works on the go, rather in a lab.and what you paid and is it worth the bother when you can just shout and wave your arms 😂.
  6. I remember many years ago standing outside a Parisien Cafe looking at the menu trying to work out what Omelette was in french. I really was standing there trying to come up with some word that included oeufs. Sometimes you just have to laugh.
  7. I just wanted a 90 day visa with no running around for extensions or visa runs as the visa runs of yesteryear were horrific days spent travelling far to fast with no entertainment and extensions are just a bind and a lost few hours that seem a bit pointless.
  8. Yes correct not B but O. I am sure I remember getting a 90 day visa for a 3 month stay and two 60 day visas with a visa run in between and a 14 day extension when I once stayed for 4 and a half months but I got a 90 day visa with no visa run or extension. this was around 10 years ago. From your post and my reading of the thai site it seems that the 90 day visa is no longer supplied. I actually want to stay 3 months over the summer JUNE, JULY, AUGUST.
  9. Hi all It's been awhile since I stayed 3 or more months so not up on any new regs , but I used to get a 90 day non imm b visa are these still available. I am 67 when I get there next year. Any advice would be helpful as I emailed the Thai consulate in London and got no reply.
  10. A teacher asks the kids in her 3rd grade class: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" LITTLE KEVIN SAYS: "I WANNA START OUT AS A MARINE PILOT, THEN BE A BILLIONAIRE, GO TO THE MOST EXPENSIVE CLUBS, FIND ME THE FINEST WHORE, GIVE HER A FERRARI WORTH OVER A MILLION BUCKS, AN APARTMENT IN COPACABANA, A MANSION IN PARIS, A JET TO TRAVEL THROUGHOUT EUROPE, AN INFINITE VISA CARD, AND ALL THE WHILE BANGING HER LIKE A LOOSE SCREEN DOOR IN A HURRICANE." THE TEACHER, SHOCKED, AND NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH THIS HORRIBLE RESPONSE FROM LITTLE KEVIN, DECIDES NOT TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT HE SAID AND SIMPLY TRIES TO CONTINUE WITH THE LESSON . . . . "And how about you, Sarah?" "I wanna be Kevin's whore."
  11. If you ability to ride a Thai automatic bike is at all in question you should stay off 2 wheels and stick to four . Almost anyone can ride the small bikes if they can ride a push bike and if it takes you more than 5 minutes to get comfy on a 125 in thailand then bikes are not for you. AFAIK there are no centers like those you describe in Pattaya as no one seems to care about how well or badly riders can control their vehicles before letting them loose on the roads. Good Luck.
  12. My wants are very simple, I have my clothes laundered a massage almost everyday shaves every other day and eat out almost all my meals, I don't drink alcohol ,dont smoke and am no longer chasing women other than the odd one now and again. The accommodation costs for some, out of the centre( I always hire a motorbike) very nice places, is very low and airfares can be had for under £400(paid £379 this year) I stayed 2 months, June/July and my total costs were under £3000, I actually took home £1200 in cash that I had budgeted for and never spent. I will continue to come as I love my summers in Thailand and will be back for 3 months next year with almost no regard for the state of either currency as its still a lower cost to me than actually staying home and I get a lot of "extras" in Pattaya Haven't been to Turkey in ages but when last I was there it was £10 notes they wanted and gave you change in LIra, you could change your £s almost anywhere and got more almost every day as inflation was horrendous back then. I also remember there was a charge to enter Turkey(£10) and that had to be paid in "hard" currency not lira. I still have a Million Lira note that I keep as a souvenir and that was worth about 90p . You would do well to look into the currency situation before you go to make sure you don't get ripped off by UK money changers as they all say no commission but give rates sometimes as much as 10% lower than the actual exchange rate you can get at your destination..
  13. The post above was posted in the wrong thread , sorry about that but the Golf club I MK Metro is a great place to eat .
  14. Considering that you can buy a pineapple that has been prepared and bagged for 20 baht not really a great bargain as most pineapples are bigger than 1kg. I will add that in years gone bye there were times when whole pineapples were 10 baht each in Pattaya and 5 baht on the roadside out of town due to a glut of fruit.
  15. I dont in general subscribe to food threads as I have no kind of special palate and am generally happy with most things put in front of me, well those things I chose because I like them. But I do love the food at the Golf Club in LK metro . I love the green curry and they do a great barbecue 3 nights a week . Now some of their meals are over the 300 but those meals I have seen big guys with big appetites take home doggie bags . The place cant be all that bad as I am sure most of its trade is from patrons of other bars who order their food at the golf club and delivered to other bars all over LK Metro by the very hard working girls and the BBQ guys is really good. Even as an admitted cheap charlie I find the food in the golf club to be wholesome tasty and economic if not the cheapest it is for me the best all round place to eat in fun town and I eat there 5 or 6 days a week when in town. Mind you I eat mainly their green Curry , which I think IS the best in town their burgers which are tasty and the BBQ chicken breasts and baked potatoes .
