Re: THAI 'sorry' passengers forced to vacate seats for crew

A Pilots job contract normally states that he is entitled to First class travel if flying as part of his job , so they were just trying to get what they are entitled too.

Re: Which Mobile Phone?

I just got myself a Oneplus 6 , it has same cpu and ram as a note 9, screen resolution is not quite as sharp as a note 9, but the screen is made by samsung for this company, it has some serious firepower and along with Mi Mix 2S , it matches the big brands for sheer power, If your willing to look aw...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

In ChiangMai and Krabi , they are shutting guest houses with over 4 rooms that do not have hotel license, any that are reopening are being forced to change signs to "Monthly Only"

Re: Thousands of Thai Dogs Perish Due to Rabies False Alarm

the cynic in me thinks that soi dog has misunderstood on purpose so it can use the story to raise funds for soi dog charity. Every day on facebook, those annoying adverts appear, soi dog asking for money, would be interesting to see a financial breakdown to see how what percentage of money actually ...

Re: Locations that serve a "good" Amercian / English breakfast.

all depends on what you pay and what you expect for your money, The large Irish Breakfast at El Murphys is fantastic , can fill a large appetite , I think it is 390 baht. Coffee Club does a breakfast for 399 baht and use chipolata sausages is seriously over priced for what you get. Anna Pie ship, do...

Re: Closing Times in Hua Hin

when you say nightclubs , do you mean the karaoke places near the Hilton, I think some of them may not open on a monday during low season, Getting a late drink is not hard in HH but you will find that most bars that do allow late drinks 230-4am , do so behind closed doors to people that live close by.

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

They are a nightmare, not just in Thailand but everywhere the buggers go, they do not comprehend queuing, they push past you and are generally rude. Yes all countries have 1-2 dickheads but they they seem to have 1.299999999 billion, Hua Hin should be reasonably safe as it is more expensive than mos...

Re: Possible land purchase 2.5km outside HH centre. Planning to build houses. Advice please.

so surely your best option for yourself is to use the 100K wisely am guessing that is 100k once you add the 27 k to the money gained from the sale, how about this for a idea. buy a small flat out rights for around 60K , peterboro or Hull or Liverpool , must be near train station. buy a 2nd one with ...

Re: Possible land purchase 2.5km outside HH centre. Planning to build houses. Advice please.

dont do it,

am pretty sure you could rent your current property out in the UK

giving you a income , while retaining a asset that will increase in value,

never listen to business advice from Thai women even if they are honest they have no grip on reality.
