Re: Driving in Laos,Cambodia and Burma

I managed to get to the top of Doi Inthanon in a Nissan Almera, but when the hills and mountains surpass 10 % in level increase above 2000 meters there's nothing left in the engine compartment. Just try and blame Nissan if you don't make it. I'm sure you will succeed and conquer any mountain in fron...

Re: Greetings from California

I fully agree with you migrant. A whole lot of years ago I temporarily lived for 6 months in Rendondo Beach area and had some very good and tender steaks there. Very similar in taste to the Argentinian produced steaks. IMHO you can't find better steaks anywhere in the world. Personal preference I kn...

Re: Driving in Laos,Cambodia and Burma

I'm right now in a town named Phonsavan, some 6 - 7 hrs driving from Vientiane. The roads in Laos are fine and just like the rural Thai Roads. No motorways though but far fewer potholes than in Thailand. And far fewer cars!! One lane roads in each direction which may make it difficult if your'e in a...

Re: Driving in Laos,Cambodia and Burma

I'll let you know about Laos in a few days. (After visiting the Plain of Jars). The distance from Vientiane to the Plain of Jars is (for me) unknown, but I'm told by my driver that it will take some 5 to 6 hours because of bad roads). That means you'll need to find a place to spend the night before ...

Re: Driving in Laos,Cambodia and Burma

In Laos you will need a car passport issued by Amphor.
I'm in Laos right now and since I did' not know about a car passport I had to rent a car and driver to show us around.

Re: Blue house book in your name

So why on earth is both Tessaban in Hua Hin and my lawyers office telling me that the blue book is a Thai-thing only and the yellow coloured one is reserved for the rest of us. The links are ok. But if the rulers say what the say, you better some up with some harder facts to convince them that they ...

Re: Blue house book in your name

The owner of a yellow book can use the book to obtain a pink Thai identity card from Tessaban. It can't be used for anything other purpose than to impress the police when you are stopped in a routine-control because they've never seen one before and because of that they let you through, Good and sou...

Re: Bangkok Hospital: hope you have health insurance or plenty of cash

Sorry to hear about your rather bad experiences and I can only say that I have a totally different view on their hospitals. In December last year I had an eye-operation at St. Mary's Hospital in Korat. I can not complain about their service because it was excellent, just as eye doctor Dr. Pairat in ...

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

Are you saying that you have been living here since early 1980? I don't believe you! You are stating that the cops are NOT picking on farangs, IN HUA HIN, BANGKOK, PHUKET, CHANG MAI and absolutely not in PATTAYA, then I dare to say you must be blind. A statement like ; they are just doing their job ...

Next time just ask for a pink burger. If they don't understand all you have to do is clarifying and pinpointing what you have in mind.

Re: Very quiet in Hua Hin

Sorry my man. The greed started here in Thailand the year 1997 with the Tom Yum Goong crisis, initiated by some Hungarian named György Schwartz a bit later known as George Soros. When all that is said; greed seems to the solemnly ruler and lawmaker in Thailand so I couldn't care less. Use your brain...

I've been living in Hua Hin - Cha Am for 13 years, and nobody - nobody are even close to what you get on Prime Steakhouse. In Phuket ther...
