  1. This video, from about the 4 mins 25 secs mark, is a walk up Soi 13.
  2. If that was on the same side as the Sportsman, it had been demolished when I was last there - March 2020.

    If you look at the issue objectively, I'd agree with you. But the choice is a subjective one.
  4. This image seems to show the new drain is going to be the full length of Soi 15, so most certainly bad news for The Hideaway and for the condos and hotels from The Avenue Mall up to Buakhao.
  5. But don't you expect there will be over the coming months?
  6. I'm reading elsewhere that the stretch from the Mercure to Second Road is more or less completed. Anyone staying anywhere between the shopping mall and Soi Buakhao is in for an "interesting" few months.
  7. (I thought it better to respond to the comment above here, rather than in the thread in which it was posted.) People do not take health insurance for a variety of reasons - some of which, IMO, are very justifiable Some people have health issues which mean that they cannot get insurance, or it is prohibitively expensive. Some (including me) looked into it and decided that the maximum cover was pretty pathetic, and the cover did not warrant the premiums being asked. "Self insurance" was a better option. Some are simply choosing to spend their money (of which many probably don
  8. @Proffesor This is the guy you need to consult with. (Edit: See thread here:https://forums.pattayatalk.com/topic/71358-property-engineering-services-what-we-do/?tab=comments#comment-1281922)
  9. That, plus the perilous state of Thai Airways' finances, makes me think that I won't be choosing to fly with them for a long while.
  10. I think "the area" is just the hotel and its grounds, plus areas you get taken to if you go on organised trips.
  11. 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
  12. I don't follow your last remark: the current policy requires quarantine, even if vaccinated.
  13. No, it isn't saying that! It is saying that it is CONSIDERING doing that.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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!
  19. My guess is that the source is a vlogger! ?
  20. Thanks, Frosty. I clicked on the link at the top of the page which says "Staff".
