Re: Thailand to introduce compulsory travel insurance/tourist tax

The airlines are very careful not to let anybody on te plane unless they have the approprite VISa, Med Ins is a little more difficult as the policies differ so much.

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

I was making the point that it is not just Chinese that are ugly tourists. You have added a similar opinion of the French .It gives the topic some balance.

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

I have been reading a lot of material about the fate of ex-pat residents retired in Spain after Brexit. Mingled in that are many comments about the yobo British tourists in Spain--the comments are as hostile as any in this thread.

Re: The Beer Thread

I have been to the Heineken brewery that is outside BKK and there, for sure, the beer is brewed the traditional way and on the tour, they said, again and again, that the process is identical to that in the Netherlands and that they have to send samples back home for analysis frequently.

Re: The rarest baseball play happened yesterday
