  1. Most of the Thai's are very nice. We experience the odd bad experience or read a negative story and that is what seems to resonate. I remember back in 2002 in Koh Samui i was in a bar when it was pissing down. I really needed to get back to my room so i checked my bin. The lady asked me where i was going so i told her i really needed to go so i'll just have to get wet. She said wait and handed me her umbrella. I told her i wasn't coming back until tomorrow night and she said mai bpen rai that's fine, don't want you to get sick. Sometimes we need threads like this to remember our hosts are
  2. Yes Coming Bar was raided with one underage girl being found as well as the possibility of illicit affairs possible on the premises. Typical timely BIB having a wee flex of muscle for the press. Given soi 6 as it is this sounds like a stitch up or tea money issue. I disagree with soi 6 being a done deal. Sure with the nightwish bars bring the outdoor bar style to the soi which i have really no interest in, there are still good indoor bars and no shortage of pretty girls. I had a walk of the soi about 2 weeks ago and was pretty impressed especially given all the gloom and doom i have read

  5. He usually parks it way up on soi Siam Counry Club. I don't know the name if the soi that is the 4 way intersection but there is a 7/11 on the corner as well. It is the last 4 way intersection before Lake Maprachan. Location is near the old Black Pearl if that helps.
  6. What has changed in Pattaya in the last 10 years??? Wow that is more like a novel than a forum post. Rather than a bashing or promotion of Pattaya and Jomtien i'll leave it IMHO as the text book definition of " same same but different". LIke it or not this is the new Pattaya and i don't see the direction reversing itself back to the " good old days". It will really be up to the Op to see how he likes or dislikes Pattaya 2019. Personally i prefer it back in 2001 when i first discovered the place and in 2003 when i moved to Pattaya but i still love it here and for my needs and lifestyle su
  7. One bar complex that was left out was Simon's on ws across from Tony's disco. Like Frog which is actually Simon's 2, bars there are a bit pricey but probably a bit better quality for beer bar girls but like all can be hit and miss. Hot Tuna on the ws front is good people watching or the bars in the back for the sea view.
  8. I used to use EVA all the time as a tourist, were great then went sharply sownhill as mentioned above not even salt and pepper included with the meal which is desperately needed with their food. When i had to start going back and forth again i did notice a bit of an improvement however their prices are getting very much on the rise. I am now using 3rd party sites like sky scanner and one travel finding deals on China Eastern China Southern and Phillipine Air and am quite happy to save the money and take them, don't really feel EVA is any better than them to be honest.

    Try talking to the True reps at the counter, i go to the one in Tesco Lotus on Thepprasit. I had a talk to them as i was disappointed in the gold and they gave me an upgrade on the internet to 100 meg, platinum package and full fiber run into the house for 150 baht a month more, got everything i need pretty much. I have an android box but not to impressed with it, also have netflix which is awesome for $12 bucks a month
  10. If you can wait until you get to Patts head to tuk com. 2nd floor up the escalator to the left to telewiz, they will sort you out. I have been using 12 call from ais for 17 years, pay as you go plans. No complaints. I don't do a data plan but when i do need 4g i hit *500# and have enough for 9 baht 24 hours for what i need
  11. China Southern Airlines I know there have been some questions asked about discount airline carriers and one in particular was China Southern Airlines. China Southern is China's second largest carrier and growing quite rapidly. I saw a deal on them BKK - LAX return for $575 USD offered on Vayama.com and jumped on it figuring how bad can it be? I had heard from a friend who had taken them before and he said they were alright. Here is a summary of my flights and time in Guangzhou Airport Bkk - Can. The plane was a 737 narrow body in a 3+3 seating format in economy. Plane seemed in good shape an
  12. This is from Taco Taco Tex-Mex FB page Taco Taco Tex-Mex
  13. I'm guessing really no customers. I have eaten there and liked the food but everytime i have been in or even rode by it was always empty. With all the boards support it still didn't work for some reason, i wish Dave luck in any future endeavor
  14. I haven't used that Shell station in 15 years. Fortunately where i line Thepprasit or heading out to Suk is an easy deal. Last time at that Shell station i busted the guy and he replied, "no work".
  15. The Last flight i took back to the states i really wasted too much timelooking around for deals and the air fares were getting too expensive. The best deal i found was on SkyScanner with Phillipine Air. This is the first time i have taken them long haul, here's my experience. Bangkok-Manila: Brand new Boeing 777. Very clean and the flight was near empty. Great selection of entertainment, food was actually really good and nice Nestle Ice Cream for desert. Manila: A little weird set up for transit as they had us queue up for bording pass check before then scanned. Once you get upstairs into th

  19. RMPM usually has the Sunday night games on Monday morning Thai time. His days of staying open that late appear to be long gone, he does a great breakfast though. Country Roads may have the game on as well as they stay open late
