Re: Bangkok Post to be delisted from the SET

I still subscribe to the Post and read it every day. Sadly, they lost their way nearly a decade ago when they stopped publishing the local stuff that made the paper interesting. Things like Bernard Trink’s Night Owl, Normita Thongtham’s “Green Fingers”, Suthon Sukphisit’s “Cornucopia” dining column,...

Re: The 90 Day Report Thread

It worked for me last week using Safari on a Mac. I submitted it on the 5th (Friday) and received the approval on the 8th (Monday).

Re: Best Route to Bumrungrad?

To all of those who contributed to this rather odd thread, I offer my thanks for the edification and for inspiring me to ruminate on our previous missteps. With new found confidence I look forward to breaking our long record of failure. It can be done.

Re: Best Route to Bumrungrad?

Is it really possible to turn right from Suk into Soi 1?

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Only rained for a few minutes after I took the photos. We still went down and swam our laps.

Fellow Americans: Happy Independence Day

To the Brits: Better luck next PM A headline in today's Bangkok Post reminded me of the one and only time that I attended an official US State Department "July 4 Bash". It was July of 1977 and we had just driven through the Khyber Pass from Kabul to Peshawar. It was a relief to get out of ...

Re: Cycling North of Cha Am

That whole stretch road from Cha Am to Laem Phak Bia seems to be an endless string of big plans gone sour.

On the other hand, construction of government buildings continues unabated.

Not a flicker. The only person I saw was a woman sweeping out what appeared to be an empty restaurant.

Cycling North of Cha Am

I hadn't done a bicycle ride very far north of Cha Am in a while. I decided today was the day. Went up just beyond Puek Tian for a round trip of just over 60K.

Re: Best Route to Bumrungrad?

I'd just stop and park at a shopping center that you're familiar with, take a taxi to and from Bamrungrad, and lessen the stress. I live in Bangkok, and that is one of the places I refuse to drive to. I typically take the train, but it does get crowded, so taxi would be the best option. It would sa...

Re: Best Route to Bumrungrad?

How do we get on Sukhumvit? Do the U turn as per your map, then head back the way you came. You will see an exit to the left for, and signposted to, 'Sukhumvit'. As a bonus you can see the hospital on your left. Exit left into Sukhumvit, then as per your map again, take the first left - Soi1 alley ...
