I also wonder how a woman can marry and have children with a man who they know has abandoned his first family. Of course for many Thai ladies "The future" is next week.
:D 'Next week'! Tomorrow might be more accurate.

They are an insular people. Even the young mostly aren't interested in the idea a highflying career or the outside world. English is learnt just to get a job say in a hotel.

So how does 2,400 baht for Black Mountain and Banyan fit into the advertised rate of 1,000 - 1,800 baht.
Unless I've missed something I don't see any rate less than 1,600baht!
Probably another case of TIT.
