  1. I heard recently that a tablet of generic viagra or cialis costs 50 cents (US), which would be 15 baht in Thailand. Go to www.goodrx.com and give a US zip code to find out the local cost of various medications. Reason for cheap viagra generic is that it the real viagra is now off patent or copyright. I visited several pharmacies in Pattaya and asked about viagra. They showed me Kamagra in tablet form and gel form (sachet). Price quotes were about 300-350 baht per four tablets and about 50-60 baht per sachet of single dose gel, which supposedly works faster. A generic cialis w
  2. Tum on soi 15 looks promising. Because it has 3 floors above. I have been in a few ground-floor massage places, where they go upstairs to an another room to give a Thai massage. The floors above Tum have windows. Maybe they can be opened. Of course, it is closed now -- due to the current mandatory closings, shutdown, lockdown, or whatever the current closures is being called. But, when re-opened, I will check it out. It is on my To-Do list.
  3. Bullfrog: " Try the shop north side of R-CON S-Bend .. " Thanks, I do not know this area. One day, I will take a walk and look. Barhop: " https://bangkokpost.pressreader.com/bangkok-post " I have to take a good look at it. Not easy to sit on a throne and to read my laptop. pattysteve: " Pattaya klang between buakhow and 3rd road(2 small shops) " For many years, I used to walk between 2nd Road and Big C Extra. Those shops with a table full of newspapers outside near the sidewalk, near 3rd Road, never had a Bangkok Post. Howeve
  4. To emphasize a need for a weekly list, here is an example: Bangkok Post, Friday, Dec 18, 2020, Life section published the following article: "Contests. Freestyle flying birds. ... and Pattaya Tourism Business Association, is holding the first 'Thailand Grand Flight Championship' at Pattaya's Bali Hai Pier on Dec 19 from 9am-6pm. More than 1,000 colourful birds of various species will be competing in five distances ranging from 6m to 14m... ... trophy from HRH Princess Chulabhorn ... Many booths will give special prices on their products. There is no admission fee. Visit facebook.com/w
  5. I was buying the daily newspaper, Bangkok Post, from a tiny news stand on Soi Buckao, about 20 meters south of Soi Diana, west side of the soi. However, a few days ago, the lady vendor told me that she was getting an operation on both of her eyes on Dec 23. She did not know when she would be well enough to work again. She did not understand my question on her type of eye problem, like cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal tear, etc. Also, she said that the owner was raising the rent on her space. She doubted that she could pay the higher rent. She said that she was going to t
  6. Thanks for the recommendation. I will take a look. As for a place with an open front and good ventilation, I am dreaming of a high-class spa. Maybe a 1,000-baht rub. A room with only one table in the middle. Not a small room with 6-7 mattresses next to each other on the floor, with a curtain in between mattresses. With last weekend's 700-plus cases of covid and government's re-impositioning of social distance measures, I think the fresh air circulation is a definite plus.
  7. My favorite massage place in Pattaya was Bamboo. Located 2nd Road, near soi 13/2, next to 7-Eleven on the corner, 2nd floor. I liked it mainly for its big pane glass windows-wall -- while enjoying a foot massage in a comfortable lounge chair. During the afternoon, the windows let in a lot of light and was relatively quiet from street noise and few customers. An air conditioner blew cool air directly on the foot massage chairs. But, it is closed, since the lockdown. I like to find a massage place with the following characteristics: -- fresh air circulating from outside t
  8. Agreed. Pattaya News has category Events. Best coverage I have seen to date. Thanks for the suggestion. Fab 103 fm on youtube tends to be very brief on public events in Pattaya. My little portable radio does not pickup the radio station. In any case, I am usually asleep until noon. Pattaya Mail, newspaper for Dec 18, 2020, page 2, has an article "Pattaya businesses want weekly events to drive Thai tourism". It mentioned some events without location, time, type of event, etc the following: -- Petanque competition, -- futsal contest, -- Muay Thai boxing even
  9. When I registered an account, the forum directed me to go to my email address to verify. I did. I logged in and posted my query. Forum said, a moderator had to check my post before it would appear. Did not see a link to get out of moderation. Today, I logged in. Did not see a link to get of moderation. Went to my email account. Saw a 2nd email from this forum, which said that my registration was complete. Went to the 1st email and click on the verify link again. Logged into this forum.

  10. Downloaded the Bolt app and got some prices. The economy car was THB 216 from The Avenue mall to Sattahip. My girl downloaded the app in Thai and got a price from The Avenue mall to Sattahip. It was over THB 600. Why the price difference? I am the foreigner and she is local.
  11. I just happened to see a street sign the other day. It was for rental e-bikes. Look for soi 15 that runs between Soi Buakao and The Avenue mall. About 20 meters behind 7-Eleven on Soi Buakao is a side road. The sign was on that corner. Along that small road is a construction site for a new hotel. The sign said 30 meters. So, try going pass the construction site. Renting an e-bike or two for an hour or two, may be an easy way to find out if you can ride one. Good luck. By the way, I met a guy in Tukcom who was walking his e-scooter on the 3rd floor. He said th
  12. During the Fall months, I heard/read that Pattaya government was having events scheduled for every weekend to encourage tourism. I heard/read of such events occurring, such as a beach fun run and food festival, AFTER they occurred. I guess the announcements were made in Thai and passed to English speakers by word-of-mouth. I wonder: is there a weekly list (in English) of public events? where, such as Beach Road from what soi to what soi? when, day/time? or, estimate with a caution notice. I did hear about the fireworks. But, only got specifics from a hotel ad for its
