Re: Thailand floods of 2017

pump boats sml.jpg So how much water is being moved with these "boats"? Looking at the photo it does not seem to be doing a great deal? RAdm Watkit Yoksawat, deputy chief of Phra Chulachomklao Naval Dockyard, said each boat is capable of propelling 72 cubic metres of water per second as well as pum...

Re: Thailand floods of 2017

Hmm, Somchai and his former partner Einstein, are at it again! I would dearly like to know just how they have arrived at some of the claims being made with these "propeller-pump boats". It appears that along with the propeller, the boats now also have a "pump". What type of "pump" is not disclosed! ...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I assume this was a mistake in the article and should be 60 cms not 60 mm which is hardly anything by Thai standards? They are quoting the same thing here: https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general/1344688/thousands-of-insurance-claims-for-vehicle-flood-damage?utm_source=bangkopost.com&utm_medium=ho...

Re: Non immigrant O visa renewal

You need to do the renewal / extension before you go. It can be done up to 30 days before, or 45 days if you go to Hua Hin Immigration I believe. BUT, you need to have all the requirements in place when you go, they are posted on here in several places. Just done mine last week, took 20 minutes incl...

Re: Vasectomy anyone?

Not sure what the UK requirements have to do with Thailand? It is my understanding that K. Mechai started this whole thing way back in 1974, in an attempt to control unwanted pregnancies to start with, and to try and help the control of Aids and other STDs. As this is TIT it very possible that some ...

Re: Vasectomy anyone?

Well, TBH I think what they have told you is a load of crap. What happens if you do not have any kids? It is probably some office girl that has no idea, just doing as she has been told.

Email the old man, I guarantee he will sort it out.

Anyone know of any accommodation in Soi 12, close to the clinic ?
There are 2 of these places, 1 in Soi 4 and this one in Soi 6. Easy walk to the clinic.

Re: Vasectomy anyone?

Just rang the clinic and you have to have fathered a child who is at least 5 years old and provide a copy of the birth certificate before they will do the op. Send an email to the following and tell them K. Mechai Viravaidya, the founder and owner of the clinic wants to know why that rule applies t...
