  1. that is one of the biggest mistake some dog owners do - chain or cage dogs full time. Chained/caged dogs are much more aggressive than dogs that can socialize with other dogs/people
  2. what are you taking about? The numbers of tourist still on the rise so obviously the parks entry fees don't matter to most tourists. It's simple economic thinking. We charge as high as people are willing to pay. Same as any business. And I think most people would realize that if dropping the fees just to get all those complaining here on TVF to visit the parks, the total revenue would still be much less than it is now. So if you owned a park how much would you charge? ??
  3. yet you still chose to come and stay here...
  4. I think that depends on the normal price. Are there any parks that charge only about 60 cents entry? Of so, I guess tourists wouldn't mind paying $6 or $12 for entry. In Thailand the most I ever paid to use a toilets facilities was 5 thb. In Italy I had to pay 1 euro.
  5. they are not taking about the boat fees. They are talking about the national park entrance fee which is decided by the ministry
  6. The laws regarding the age of consent in Thailand are not very clear. Basically 15 is the legal age of consent, but... between the ages of 15-18 if the young person has changed his/her mind he can still make a complaint about the other person who will be charged for sex with a minor. This works if both parties are under 18, so if a 15 YO couple having consensual sex but later one of them changes their mind, the other will be charged. 18 is the legal age of full consent, but no money or other forms of payment for sex is allowed. 20 is the minimum age for someone to get paid for sex. If what you say is true, it's all the more of a reason for government protection and guidance!!
  7. did you read the article or only the headline?? In the article it says 2 juveniles and a man. It also says they all admitted raping her.
  8. so running up a bill you cannot afford is ok...
  9. you missed one minor fact. Europeans don't have to apply for a visa in order to visit Thailand for up to 30 days with option for extension. Thais MUST apply for a visa to Europe's even if they only have a layover of few hours between flights if they want to get out of the airport.
  10. interesting point. Yet I wonder how would all the Europeans, Americans, Australians and citizens of all the other great western and advanced countries would feel if they had to go through the same process and expenses as Thai people have to go through to get a simple tourist visa to visit their country
  11. yes, I wondered how come no one so far commented on that... I was just about to ask the op WHY...
  12. The meter is usually outside the property, many times across the road. From there it goes to the main switch / fuses on the property - if it is a plot of agricultural land where the electricity was connected before the house was built - the main switch might even be far from the house. Logically the connection should be AFTER the switch so the power can be cut off while connecting the wires, but I guess it can also be done somewhere between the meter and the switch. So - it between the meter and the switch - turning off the switch won't make a difference. If after the switch but the switch is outside the house - won't make a difference either as the neighbors can reconnect / switch on the power... I'd say the best solution is go talk NICELY and POLITELY with the neighbor and ask them either to pay all future bill or just stop using your power. If you don't know who the person is, can ask the assistance of the village chief. If that doesn't work - you might consider buying a solar cell unit, as was suggested above, and ask the PEA to cut you off the grid and take the meter away.
  13. Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same Facebook principles. Therefore, every day I go out on the street and tell the passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before, and what I will do tomorrow. Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog, of me gardening and spending time in my pool. I also listen to their conversations and I tell them I love them. It works! I already have 3 persons following me: 2 police officers and a psychiatrist.
  14. Better do some more research. It's not the same man.
  15. I don't think that getting a PR has anything to do with human rights as on the UN resolution. No country in the world is obliged to give PR status to anyone. Some countries might see advantages in allowing new people in, others prefer to keep to their own culture and way of life.
