  1. A word of caution for anyone thinking of travelling to Thailand from the UK. With a very large percentage of the adult population now fully vaccinated, the policy of the UK government seems to be that they are not going to be concerned about the number of people who have Covid-19, only about the number who are hospitalised or die. So, with many restrictions already lifted, with more to come on the 19th, an ever larger proportion of the population will be infected with Covid-19. Furthermore, the symptoms (if any) of having Covid-19 after being doubly vaccinated are very similar to ha
  2. I don't follow your last remark: the current policy requires quarantine, even if vaccinated.
  3. No, it isn't saying that! It is saying that it is CONSIDERING doing that.
  4. I believe he said he aimed to declare Thailand fully open within 120 days and for tourism centres that are ready, "to do so even faster". Prayuth urged the public to get vaccinated as fast as possible and said the reopening target could only be met if the vaccines are delivered according to the committed schedules. (My emphasis.) https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/thailand-targets-reopening-within-120-days-economy-flounders-2021-06-16/ An "aim" is not the same as a certainty. He's already given himself a let-out. I really don't see it happening in that timesca
  5. More than once have I been around bars in Pattaya and encountered English who have fucked off there, and have felt ashamed to be English.
  6. More could be on the way: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-30/big-business-eyes-pot-friendly-food-as-thai-general-liberalizes?srnd=premium-asia
  7. Yes, that's my view too. There are just so many variables on both the Thai and home country sides to book now. Some of those need to be settled before I book.
  8. Funny you should mention that! I've been thinking how ironic it would be if the Covid restrictions in LOS and our home countries were relaxed, so that we could get to LOS again, only to find that civil unrest meant our governments were advising us not to travel!
  9. My guess is that the source is a vlogger! 🙂
  10. Thanks, Frosty. I clicked on the link at the top of the page which says "Staff".
  11. Might be contrary to the building's insurance. You need to check with the management committee.
  12. I've just seen this, posted today on a FB group, and think it worth copying here to caution potential users: Hi all. Absolutely loving the bolt taxi app, however last night we had a bit of a sketchy experience.... Halfway through our trip from Jomtien to Pattaya our driver (in a taxi company vehicle) suddenly answered his phone and asked us to get out. His conversation (in Thai) was odd and very brief and he strangely asked us to drop us off ... The location he dropped us at was well lit with people around otherwise we we would not have got out... The very od
  13. Judging by his FB posts, Aidan is still in London.

  15. Can someone tell me why I should pay for a VPN when there is a free one built into the Opera browser, please?
  16. I've just seen a video a mate posted on FB of the devastation of the beach by the rains last night. It looks like the new drainage has had very little effect.
