Re: Massive exodus from Bangkok - 7 deadly days of Songkran begin

This "7 Deadly Days" thing is a myth. According to the yearly road death figures, then actually it's safer to drive around during these major holiday times than it is to do so normally by about 5-10% due to the police actually being forced into doing their job more actively than usual due to politics.

Re: Living in Phuket ?

All the tourist places is where you should all be at as you would find the rest of Thailand too challenging to deal with. Those that suggested the beach holiday resorts are spot-on for you guys. Have fun there and 07.

Re: Australian man dead after brutal bar attack in Pattaya

Pattaya is a magnet for the foreign and Thai trash...plus unsuspecting tourists from both sides too. Strong the douche can be in Pattaya. Not confined to there, but often is more concentrated in such places.

Re: Embassy frets over plight of UK inmates in Thailand

How about telling UK nationals that they shouldn't break laws in foreign countries and expect some sort of special treatment as they [foreign countries] are much more unforgiving than the luvvies that run the UK justice system? You are not special and if you do the crime then be prepared to do the t...

Maybe someone can ask Boris which hotel room they will be running the UK consular affairs from in the near future.

Re: The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency thread

Was wondering about this folks. They say that Bitcoin miners are solving difficult math problems etc. but was wondering what happens when they are solved? Do they help some company or are they (the answers) sold off to companies or governments or what? What are they actually solving and how does it ...

Re: Wildlife hunters must face justice

It's a shame. We foreigners must pay 10 times entry fee for a national parks and this rich and powerful Thai did't even pay an entry fee and was't check. Not only that...but was also basically OKed to hunt endangered species at will by someone who received payment and I bet that this wasn't the fir...

Re: Clean Hua Hin's beaches movement - Trash Hero

Despite your good intentions....lol. You'll all probably be deported for working without WP if it suits them. Yeah, help those that couldn't give a toss about their own beaches unless it means money for them. Sorry for my cynical comment...but have fun on your silly modern socio-media ego trip and p...

Re: NHS treatment back in the UK if resident in HH?

Considering the ridiculous people who they give welfare to in general in the UK, it's shocking that there are restrictions on any UK passport holders regarding this, as if you hold a real passport for the UK you should get it.

Lost it's way imo. It's the NHS....not the selective NHS

Re: NHS treatment back in the UK if resident in HH?

What if you have an address in the UK, are registered there (and have been for a long time) with your UK driving license and current UK active bank accounts all matching up, have never registered with the "Locate" service at the BBK embassy etc. but have lived out here for a long time. Would that fl...

Short answer...NO, it's highly risky.

Long answer...come back in 5 years and ask if you are still with the same girl.

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

All sounds ghastly. Glad I won't be anywhere overrun by the hordes of 'zero-dollar' tourists and their ilk.
