Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

The site is showing the unsafe warning again, although it will open if you proceed. I did mine over Christmas, showing approved from the 26th, but it will not open any further.

Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

I managed to get one from Big Kiang after the top of a palm tree landed on it.
Probably not of much use after the top of a palm tree landed on it! :rasta:

Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

Find a guttering contractor, he will make them up out of stainless steel or galvanised. Sorry, I no longer have a contact number.

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

Probably a waste of time, but it may make you feel better. Remember the carry on that you had with the Ford Dealer in Hua Hin?

Also a waste of time trying to use their call centre number.

Would be interesting to know how Immigration treat this, if the poor bugger has no recall of what he has said or done.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Yeh, these speed warnings are appearing all over Thailand. I would doubt their accuracy as going past one on the way to Tha Yang, it had my speed more than 10kms over my actual speed! I believe that this one is the same one that I posted about some time ago. How do you know what your true speed is?...
