  1. I`m interested in making a short trip to New york city, i checked netflights. com. it came up with £1500 ($1950) the cheapest, i mean WTF? so i went to the Britsh airways site. £200 ($260) outwards, but £1500 inwards. That crazy money, whats going on?
  2. central festival is pretty damn big, where exactly?, I expect i will need to do the same in June
  3. I got two more trips this year after June, so will definately book Thai, really want to try this big bird, wondering what flight on the London route they will ditch?
  4. How do you know I`m a Reading man Butch? yes we are a much better away side now, rubbish at home!
  5. I`m going June 1st till 20th, due to be flying 747 , already picked my seat so it would appear it`s not about to change
  6. Thai are to introduce the A380 on the Heathrow route from July,not sure if this means they will revert to one flight a day or not because during low season they have trouble filling the 747s http://www.thaiairways.com/en_GB/exp_thai/our_aircraft/THAI_A380.page?
  7. I stayed there last month, can`t fault the place, unless you are right up on the 3rd floor. it`s quite a climb. you must book early if you want to get in, already in for 16 nights in June on the first floor
  8. I used to love staying at the Metro apts. sadly I have had to knock it on the head because of the noise, as Jeff said the Paradise next door starts early and you can hear the bass through the wall, if you want a early evening sleep before hitting the streets forget it. If you need to be up early in the morning for your flight home forget about getting an early night. if you are out before 18.00 and not home till 3.30am then yes it`s a great place to stay.
  9. not worth the paper it is written on. the motorbike taxi riders will still ask (and get in most cases) what they want .
  10. No it isn`t I just discovered I`m still on IE 10, I can`t quote on any of the Pattaya forums, but can on a home based forum
  11. I notice people are still using it, but it doesn`t appear to work for me.
  12. One of my favourite daytime activities is to sit in a bar on 2nd road opposite Mike shopping and watch the people walking over the crossing with their hand held aloft for the traffic to stop. I have visions of specially designed body bags at the morgue with extensions for the outstretched arm
  13. Reading in the BKK post this morning about unusual cold weather in the north and Bangkok, how is it looking in Pattaya do I need to bring a coat?
  14. The current political unrest appears to be having a negative impact on hotel occupancy rates and advance bookings this month in Bangkok and some provinces, a recent poll conducted by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) showed. Overall, occupancy has dropped by 5 per cent compared with the same period last year, with Bangkok hit hardest with a drop of 25.5 per cent year on year, followed by 5.6 per cent in Nakhon Ratchasima, 5 per cent in Kanchanaburi and 4.4 per cent in Songkhla. However, arrivals in Chiang Mai and Chon Buri were still positive, showing an increase of 2.7 per cent and 7.9
  15. Just wondering if the current unrest is causing people to cancel in large numbers? I can imagine empty planes from China, but how are flights from Europe and Australia looking?
  16. in pattaya the bars open around the 10pm mark,or they did for the local elections, not sure about Bkk though
  17. Been told over at secrets that the voting closes at 6.00pm on the 2nd, so why may I ask would the bars be closed until midnight?
  18. I was there for the last local elections. I think the bars reopen after the polls close, around 10.00pm. my memory is hazy but I think it was just one day each weekend
  19. Feb 14th. my last night in Thailand is going to be a dry one , have to be up early on the 15th so looks like I won`t have a hangover
  20. yes that's a bitch, I can order online too, but the bastards send all kind of small denominations. I would have all 100s or bigger given a chance
