Re: Agoda hotel descriptions warning

Agoda and booking.com are actually the same company. Usually they have also the same prices.

Re: Petty problems with hua hin immigration

Handdrummer made a one year extension of the visa. For this you can make it 4 weeks before the date but not one day after it.

Re: Tourist eVisa trials beginning at the end of this year

The website says it is only for 30 days. This makes no sense for France or UK, because they get 30 days anyway, so it is only for China.

When I was at ckeck-in in KL before 8am, they told me that the schedule has changed to 11:30. No Email from Ais Asia. When I look at the booking site, all flights in August will be at 11:30...

Booking for November is now possible with the same schedule as before, but there is a remark:

Do you mean meters or feet? 4 m deep would be very strange.

But it was much more expensive at Blueport, because we ate at a restaurant (Wine Connection, very good) and did some shopping of specialities at Gour...

Re: Most practical and least expensive way to transfer large funds to Thailand?

I just looked at Transferwise. The fees rise with the amount of money you send. For small amounts it might be cheaper than other transactions, but for larger sums it is more expensive.

Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

Today I tried again the 90 day reporting online, but it did not work. There came a message that I should visit the immigration office. Last time it worked online for me.

Re: GPS for Honda CRV

e.g. if you want to go to Bangkok, you put in your destination as long as you are at home connected to internet, maybe some weeks before you go. Then when you go you will have the complete route available offline, but no traffic information. Then the Bangkok map is stored locally and next time you c...

Re: GPS for Honda CRV

I use the "here" app, which is free and can be used offline. You just have to use an address in the region you want to go online once before.
