  1. It's what the app on my mobile was showing. Also bear in mind that Pattaya is on the coast, whereas Uttaradit is inland. Have just seen a facebook post showing it hit 43 DegC up there Monday afternoon. Up until 2016 Uttaradit held the record for the highest recorded temperature in Thailand @ 44.5 DegC (April 1960), until 2016 when Mae Hong Son recorded 44.6 DegC. I've experienced the temperature difference myself when I make trips down to Pattaya from up north.
  2. You think that's brutal.... just been checking Uttaradit where I'm are heading in 3 weeks time.... it's 5 degrees hotter than Pattaya!!! And forecast to be hitting 40 degrees all next week...... Have been there when it hit 45 Degrees a few years ago Hope it's not that hot in 3 weeks time!!!
  3. I've had both good and bad experiences booking through agents, but unfortunately the last issue I had with an agent with regards to dealing with a refund for a flight cancelled by an airline and moved the booking to another totally unsuitable flight left a sour taste.... The agent was of no help in chasing up the refund, so never got the refund. Dealing directly with airlines I've never had a problem that hasn't been sorted, including refunds and flight changes.
  4. I landed on an Emirates flight the day the protest had kicked off..... Had no problems getting down to Pattaya and the it wasn't until going to Cherry Bar and Adam asking me when I got there did I find out about the airport had been closed by the protestors!!! I believe the Emirates flight was one of the last ones to land. Was on a 4 week long trip and the protest was over before I flew home, but met a few who were stuck in Thailand and having difficulty getting a flight home.
  5. It's not reverse thrusters.... it's just the way the engine casings have been painted....
  6. In 15 years of driving on Thai roads I've been pulled in by the cops a grand total of one time. Every time we go through the police check points I always get waved through as soon as they see falang driving the car.
  7. Damn!!! Going to miss this by one day..... I arrive in Pattaya on the 20th!!!
  8. I posted previously about always booking direct with the airline, but for my upcoming trip in November Bangkok Airways prices were ridiculous for the flight we use flying up to Sukhothai and only showing the top price tickets available, the price quoted was more than double what we normally pay!!!, Searched on Skyscanner and ended up booking through booking.com as the fare they quoted was half the price than booking via Bangkok airways...... Within minutes booking was confirmed and was able to access the booking via the Bangkok airways website....
  9. First weekend of games and yet another shit start to the season for me!!! Why do I bother???
  10. I've been booking direct with Qatar for about the last 4 years, and had no problem getting a full refund when COVID hit, also they extended the validity of my Q Points and Air-miles too because of Covid...... and thanks to the number of trips I've made since Thailand re-opened I hit Gold status on my last trip!!! Just booked again direct with Qatar, using cash+air-miles to get discount on the fares.
  11. After years of mediocrity I was pondering about giving it a miss, despite achieving my highest ever score last season.... Stupidly I've gone ahead and entered a team. No doubt It'll prove to be yet another waste of time!!!!
  12. On my first ever trip to Thailand stayed in Hua Hin for 3 nights..... Loved it but not gone back yet, but hope to someday.....
