  1. I wouldn't mention that I lived and drove in Thailand, most likely they would refuse or load the quote, happened to me after 3 years in New Zealand. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  2. Go back to sign on every 2 weeks?? For 40 odd quid!!! And most benefits have been cut now, , there's no system to fiddle these days.
  3. It certainly appears that's what they want with the long stay visa requirements and the new rules for border runs. It's hard to live here say for 6-7 months if you're under 50 and cannot get a retirement visa, the whole visa situation in Thailand is ever changing and shambolic at best. Can't the government work out that a long term visitor spends more than a 10-14 day tourist?
  4. There's a tug towing up to 8 barges containing coal going past our place, Jomtien and Koh larn every day, gets loaded near siracha and then down the coast to a power station near rayon. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  5. I went to have a look around this show today and was refused entry by the less than polite security guard, he said no stay hotel, no see show. So apparently you have to be staying at this hotel to see the car show, I didn't see this as a stipulation to view it on the advertisement, what a crazy way to run a vintage car show.

  6. Went to food Mart today for bread, about 6 people in there, then for a stroll along Jomtien beach, just a few foreigners there as well, wouldn't call it busy 99% Thai. Surf beach still advertising 590 bht rooms, always used to be 1000 bht, whoever says it's busy here is on another planet. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  7. Was down beach road for the Paddy's day parade, very quiet, normally busy, a few groups of Indians and Chinese, hardly any Western tourist's. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  8. My laptop broke so I am on a tablet now, I can copy but doesn't paste on to the browser ( Google), been to the internet shop and tried different browsers as well, same result, just don't understand why this outfit called visa4 UK is making it so hard just to put an application in. It's ​not just me, looked on the internet and others are having difficulty to. Another problem is I,m no computer expert. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  9. I am applying for a visa for my g/f, filled in the registration form, got email back saying to confirm, go to www.visa4 UK.gov.uk/ account/confirm registration. Didn't work, just get error 404. Any ideas? Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  10. My g/f went to the local 7-11 and bought something and handed over 100 bht, was given 900 odd bht change, told the cashier her mistake, never a smile, thanks, nothing, for her honesty. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  11. I can only assume the tourist ministry means, the floundering tourist is missing generally, not at sea. I had a stroll down beach road today, should have been busy due to the Paddy's day parade, it was dead, a few Chinese, not tour groups, few middle Eastern blokes, usual expats, very quiet.

  12. The article was published by the Daily Mirror, not the Sun, so this article is pure fiction, and garbage to boot, the author could get sued for defamation by the Sun if it was in Thailand. Sent from my B3-A30 using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  13. Damn foreigners infesting cinemas now.
  14. A typical Thai landlord reaction when the landlord doesn't like the tenant, double or quadruple the rent, that should make em relocate. I believe the Yahoo report as posted by londonthai as the honest answer.
