Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

The main ruling applies to short term rentals, regardless of whether it is BNB or someone else. Whilst only condos have been mentioned so far, I wonder if this also applies to houses. If it does apply to houses, this could be the way to close down party houses, which would be a good result. Illegal...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Virtually impossible. 7 steps to go through. Inspection of safety regulations, dedicated hotel manager etc etc.

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

Isn't Singkhon and Hua Hin immigration the same outfit. It certainly used to be the case. i.e. Hua Hin immigration was an outpost of Singkhon.

Re: Railway police face axe

And these local authorities will have the power of arrest. If so, just another door for corruption.

Does anyone have the address for the Ministry of Silly Walks in Bangkok??

Re: Hotel key card leads to identity of foreigner washed up on Hua Hin beach

Police said it looks like he went out swimming alone and possibly suffered cramp or a seizure.
The assumption of the authorities (police) never cease to amaze me. It's reported that the guy was clothed and without any forethought the police assume he went swimming and got cramp!!

not the useless BKB atm card. Not sure I understand that. My Bkk bank debit card works pretty much anywhere. Uk, Malaysia, Cambodia...... I may have jumped in without thinking there.

Re: Banking in HH

If you need to do business back in your home country using a debit card, make sure it is either a Visa or Mastercard. That knocks BKK out of the running. They switched to a Union Pay card. Funny how that just came up. I was going to do a search. I read that current debit cards (visa) from BKK bank ...

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

Yeh, double lines, single lines, solid vs dotted, box junctions, roundabouts, Give Way signs, 'no stopping', 'no parking, etc etc. Thailand would save millions if they never put up another road sign and never painted road markings. Nothing would change. Driving 'same same'.

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

Most locals don't understand the lane markings. i.e. solid line, double line etc. Traffic is often seen crossing a solid line and even overtaking on a double line. With double lines, you can overtake if the line nearest you is 'dotted'. I was always taught that if the line closest on my right has 'h...

However there are ways around the prohibited list, I don't know how but some foreigner's do work in some of the occupations listed as prohibited. I believe many are employed as 'advisers'. The European lawyers that work here are 'Legal Advisers'. Some working in schools have the job 'Director'. And...

You need to check with your airline as rules differ. Some airlines allow a golf bag and clubs free of charge on top of your free allowance.
