Re: Heavy crackdown looms on Uber, ride-sharing apps

In Bangkok I used Uber and Grab. On a short drive Uber was 40 Baht and Grab 112 Baht. On a longer drive Uber was nearly 600 Baht and Grab was 308 Baht. Both adjust their fees to the demand at the time of booking.

End of January, when I made my 1 year extension (retirement) I asked the officer about this visa. Only to see, if he knows about it. I dont have the money to make it. And he knew a lot about it. You can apply in Thailand, but you must have the 3 Million Baht already one year on an account and you ha...

Re: Background colour for visa photo

I made my one year extension on friday and submitted photos with blue background. No problem, but another officer might have another opinion.

Re: Arrival to carousel time at BKK airport?

Yesterday my plane landed at the airport at 4:05 pm very near to the immigration. With cabin baggage only and the priority lane I was at the bus station at 4:20 (new record), but the 4:30 bus was already fully booked. Fortunately I had a ticket for the 6pm bus, because it was also fully booked. The ...

Re: Soi 94 map

More than half of the bars and restaurants have gone or changed owners. I wonder why people still think they can make profit in this business.

Re: Farang buying a house with a Thai lady

Re: What's the best currency exchange office in Hua hin

The exchange offices in Hua Hin don't change Baht to foreign currencies. You have to go to a bank and they sometimes have to order the money. At the airports you get Dollars without problem.

Re: Buying a new laptop

First I looked at Lazada and wrote down the prices of some Laptops. But most of them have no operating system (only DOS) and no programs. Then I went to the old shopping mall, upper floor, in Hua HIn and bought an Acer Laptop for the same price as Lazada but with Windows 10 and a lot of programs (al...

Re: 2017 F1 News and Prediction Tournament

Until now, I made my picks very close to the P2 results, which was very successful. But for this race I don't believe it will be wise to do so.
