  1. Fairly close to Samui Airport arrivals gate, on Sanambin road going towards Bangrak from the arrivals gate, on left hand side - I recently noticed a "Luggage repair" shop with sign. Fairly big shop set a bit in from the road. I believe it is called: Nattakorn Samui Baggage Repair Service Shop
  2. I have flown Ching Mai to Los Angeles with Korean Airlines. Very nice airline. Very good service and fairly new aircraft. Business class is very good as well. The business lounge in Seoul has always been quite crowded and not extremely comfortable but they do have shower rooms, bar and ok food. Tip: Check out to check the particular flight's aircraft and layout.
  3. Central kids section
  4. IPM Samui. We got our kitchen through them. Modern designs. Great selection. They are quite busy.
  5. Love El Gaucho. Great steak, great service and ambience at prices that I'm ready to pay when I want quality. Roughly same as a good steakhouse in USA. They have opened a branch in Samui recently with the same great steak, service and ambiance.
  6. High quality stainless steel grills, made in Udon Thani. Excellent service and quality. They will ship anywhere in Thailand. I have 2 grills made by them.
  7. +1 for mailing the bike. Kamtien post office will wrap/protect the bike and mail it. About 4-5 day service. I have mailed 2 big bikes and a scooter with zero complications.
  8. When you find one, there's no need to make an appointment as they'll already know you're coming.
  9. Perfect Dry Cleaning Google: perfect dry cleaning Chiang Mai - for directions etc...
  10. I go to the main office at the intersection diaganol from Big C Hang Dong. It's a 2 story duplex with a giant SINET sign. All the techs work upstairs and you can arrange to pay in advance there or you can arrange to have your bill deducted from your bank every month (as I do) or you can arrange to pay by internet banking. I also got private numbers and emails of English speaking technicians there. Great service and knowledgeable people. The satellite kiosks in the malls are staffed by part timers...
  11. Alibaba.
  12. >>The Centre of the Universe has a nice, clean saltwater pool. The facilities around it have definitely seen better days though. Admission and/or membership is quite pricy, considering (I think THB 120 for 3 hours).<< 150THB for full day
  13. the rea lcentre o fthe universe
  14. Casa Habano is open Nimman soi 9 (behind the Ducati dealer). Prices not cheap but not unlike prices in Canada. They have comfortable sofas and chairs for smoking in the store. If you're looking for a bargain, this is not the place. But if you're looking for a good cigar and a place to enjoy it, this may be it.
  15. I love Uber. Haven't used it in Chiang Mai yet but use it in Bangkok and many other cities worldwide. Grabtaxi is also very good. Grabtaxi has an option to add a "tip" when booking so if you are in a remote area, or it's raining, or traffic is bad... adding a decent tip usually results in a timely pick up.
