  1. Thanks Ron. I noted Heaven Above in my introduction Last week a big guy lit up. He was stopped after a single puff. Now that is good management Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah and some prick started on a cigar. Now many people say that the like cigar smoke. Ok but not the general shite smoked here. I also would draw attention to vaping. Some smells are horrible. Some smokers don't just take a drag but blow out an endless cloud of smoke. It's the change of scenery added to the fact that right now Pattaya is as quiet as I have seen it. Imagine high season!

  3. Pat. You may well be correct but even a suggestion like this will bring out those who believe that they have a god given right to pollute. Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Tapatalk
  4. Bill. The point I was making is the proliferation of smoke. The air is thick with vapes, Marijuana and cigarettes. It can only get worse. I not a non smoking Nazi by the way. Friends and family smokers figure importantly in my life. I am against inconsiderate people. Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Tapatalk
  5. Not requesting, just suggesting. Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Tapatalk
  6. I am in Pattaya as I write this. Great trip for me but it must be hell for most bars and clubs as there a few spending customers. There is however one are that is causing me some distress and that is the mixture of cigarettes, ganja, cigars and vaping smells. Thankfully no pipe smokers. This will only get much worse as tourism picks up. It is for this reason that I believe that we need a new forum called possibly "Non Smoking Venues". I have been very happy to support Heaven Above, Sugar Sugar, Windmill and Windmill Annabelle which are non smoking on the ground floors. Many gogo bars h
  7. As ever a good read and appreciated Sent from my Nokia 6.1 using Tapatalk
  8. Can I suggest the following. The scams that I am aware of happen when you get there. The drivers attempt to steer you in a direction that you dont want to go. For this reason and to answer your question the simple answer is to Google a half dozen local taxi firms, compare the pricing and order ahead. Its not totally foolproof as this wont stop the driver asking you to change your accommodation to a "Much better hotel". Just dont let a taxi driver piss you about and all will be well. PS. I would give the same advice to anyone going to Bangkok or any other place.
  9. Ok. Yes Debua. Thanks for righting my wrong. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  10. Just a few steps away is the also new Labua. Could be worth a look. Met some guys in December staying there. They were quite impressed and the daily rate was very good. May have changed now. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks for the comments. Looking at some options for forthcoming travel there are a lot of options where there is a 10/12 hour lay over in KL. In the past I have found that eating and drinking there on stopover is an expensive proposition and I might have been better to have got some sleep in a capsule for a few hours.
  12. There is still a shortage of decent air options for Thailand from my neck of the woods. Rather than stay overnight in Auckland I thought that a good option could be Kuala Lumpur Airport. I have had a look at some of the options but wonder if anyone out there has experience of staying at the airport. I have no desire to go into KL and only look for a place within walkable distance of the airport. I dont expect more than a ten hour stopover. I assume that people on layover like this staaying within the airport can do so without a formal visa but again, any advice appreciated.
  13. I am an avid wine drinker at home but cannot see the value in Thailand. I do go and check out Australian and New Zealand wines when I am there. As a general rule the retail price is three times what I would pay at home. That Vella sounds like a real bargain. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks for that advice. My phone crashed on my way to Thailand and I guess that it makes sense that some of the reinstalled apps don't work as before. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk

  16. As a computer illiterate I appreciate your reply. I don't think you actually read my questions or comments. Like about 70 percent of the planet I have Android and as default, Chrome, Google and all its apps that come with the average mobile. It's so simple really. What was click and click again has disappeared from my phone. Its obvious that no one has given thought to my question which was part of Pattayatalk that worked before but doesn't work now. Bugger all to do with Chrome. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  17. Thanks for trying. I guess that I am a tech illiterate. In the past it was a simple case of click the cartoon, press the down arrow which appeared below and there it was, downloaded immediately into Photos. Google Chrome simply did not feature hence my comment and I just have no idea how the Chrome and downloading the cartoon is linked. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  18. I just wish that I understood what you mean. I would simply click the cartoon and save and it ended up in Google Photos. Now it just won't save. I have no idea how Chrome comes into the picture. Perhaps you can enlighten me please. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  19. Just wanted to give a plug for Canterbury Tales OK I admit that I had trouble with Google Maps as I seem to get multiple destinations. I took the radical method of asking someone who had been there. It worked. The new layout is great, easy to use and it is very well stocked as you would expect. I picked up a newly published book (2022) and for 180 baht with a 50%return discount was a bargain. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  20. Just a techo question. Over the years I have downloaded quite a few of the excellent cartoons. Has this privilege been withdrawn or is it something to do with my account? The download arrow appears but that's as far as it gets. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  21. The expiry date of the visa is the day after you fly out according to your flight ticket. The last visa I applied for was requested about 8 weeks before the flight. The reasons for this is that you sometime need a bit of extra time up your sleeve. If your passport got lost in the post ! Disaster! If you have to source extra material (I had to get some scanned docs from Thailand), and so forth. I dearly hope that the 45 visa exemption is still going when I next want to visit. The cost, time and trouble of the 60 day visa isn't worth the hassle. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  22. Not quite on topic but I would add. The package you buy has to be related to the amount of free Internet in your accommodation..I took on board the suggestion of a boardie to key in the long code from AIS. In a month I did the heavy work from the free WIFI and used my data plan when out and about. Result. I only used 80% of the package that cost me 275 baht for a month. A little bit of planning has saved me some baht. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  23. Just to add to the topic. I have twice this year obtained a 60 day visa. As part of the application I have to supply a copy of my airline ticket. In both cases, despite the application date the visa expired the day after my flight. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  24. Sorry that I can not be there. Congrats on getting this far but I sure that there will be more of the Cherry Bar story to come. Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
  25. Looking forward to seeing Pattaya again soon! Sent from my CPH1941 using Tapatalk
