It's a pretty good bet that customs will get involved.

Re: Teeth whitening.. Latest best place?

"Crest White Strips AP"

I've Googled this and do not see anything by that given name. Certainly there are Crest white strips but I don't see an AP. There is 3D and White Lux by Crest.

What have I missed?

Cheers

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

Indeed, they don't even need to leave the airport! I was into Swampy and was in the downstairs food court not so long ago and my guess that a couple of planes had landed not only from China but Russia as well (?). Honest to Gawd you needed a whip and chair to have handled that mob. The yelling and p...

Re: The Peril of Bar or Restaurant Ownership

Even in western countries the #1 business failure is the restaurant business. Bars are not far behind. All of that is made worse here in Thailand by the need of work permits, licenses held in the name of a Thai, staffing problems, etc., and all other manner of regulation (real or imaginary by the au...

Re: Hua Hin beaches closed due to dangerous surf

That bay area of PKK can turn into pretty much a washing machine with the tide up and the wind blowing in as it's a crater of an old volcano.

I'm not sure anybody "condones" it but it is normal. At the least certainly not unusual.

I don't know that it will make any difference should it actually come to pass.

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

I'm always tickled when I read the comment, on this or any other subject, the whatever it is "has never been a problem". It's never a problem - until it is. Just because someone has "nothing to hide" does not mean all will be well. What would have happened if you had been by yourself without a Thai ...

Re: UK and Thailand to hold joint military excercise

That the two countries are going to put together a joint exercise, especially a meaningful one, in this short of a time period is really a joke.

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

Only just discovered this thread! Are you a regular visitor to Thailand? I don't think tourists are put off by passport control delays if the rest of their experience is wonderful. And these staff all around the world are often surly, in USA they are appalling, UAE also most of them just seem arrog...

Re: Should I take a taxi to the airport early morning

Any taxi recommendations or guess on the price? there must be somebody who knows the price and can give suggestions for a driver? And yes, he said they need to get to the airport at 9.00 a.m. I gave up trying to make suggestions because somebody always knows better on this subject. Amen brother! No...
