  1. Young Chinese women... perhaps they were but agreed to some other 'arrangements' with police back at the station.
  2. No that's pretty tame, my visa history is 10x worse and I'm still here
  3. RIP to the 100+ victims of het kan hok tula for whom there is no official mourning, funeral or recognition, as there really should be every October.
  4. You do realize all the logistics of the FMP are organized by Thais. How are they 'behaving as a colonizer'? It's also a complete sausagefest, not many Thai girls at FMP, the few girls are mostly farang, and those tourists hardly ever participate in the sex trade if that's what you're implying. They're a lot more positive for Thailand than the barflys (of which I am one).
  5. Just because people don't hold the same views as yourself doesn't mean they don't 'get it'. They do 'get' what your side of the debate is, they just disagree with it. There are actually many Thais who don't feel the way you do. They just can't talk about it publicly. You can't get an accurate picture of how many hold one opinion, when to express that you don't it extremely illegal.
  6. Opening Bitcoin Account in Thailand?

    Exodus has a backup / restore feature built in, no need to do anything
  7. 3000 baht quarterly bribe for education visa?!

    That could be explained by other factors - like the current military government. During previous ones the situation with visas was just as hard now if not worse, according to TVF posters who lived here then (before my time). Then it got better, so it's entirely possible everything gets easier again at some future point, and you don't have to get your ministry of labor letter / full set of company docs any longer. There's also never actually been a statement to the effect of 'we're changing things because of people living here too long on tourists visas and exempts'. That's a misnomer. It's actually always been down to illegal workers and criminals. (Plus the military enforcing rules that already existed but didn't get enforced before.) There are no set limits in law to how long one can 'be a tourist'. Being one for too long isn't a thing. Neither is being a student who pays for their course but their heart isn't really in it and they just want to live here, an issue. During the Ed visa crackdown of 2014-5 all the official statements about it talked about illegal workers and criminals being on Ed visas. Nothing about 'using Ed visa to live here'. If you pay for the course and attend, you get to live here, simple as that. Example statements refer to criminals and drug dealers and simply ask that students study longer hours. Original Thai: Those that actually work illegally / commit crimes are the ones making things worse for everyone, not those who simply use lots of tourist visa / exempts / study Thai. They're not the same thing. That's a false equivalency perpetuated by some angry types on Thaivisa.
  8. 3000 baht quarterly bribe for education visa?!

    There are hot Thai chicks working all over Asia and in the West. Perhaps they'll get married to a Thai and actually be able to have a deep conversation with them. That'll then solve the permission to stay issue.
  9. Visa overstayer alleges extortion of Bt600,000

    When I overstayed 4 years I saved almost that much from not having to do visa runs
  10. Yes https://www.bangkokflightservices.com/home/bfs-services/premium-airport-services/
  11. Fiancée rather, he plans to marry. "If you have Thai GF and you love her, take her to your home country and stay there, you are not wanted here" an elderly female officer told him.
  12. That's not what I meant, it's just as a foreigner you can reduce a tiny risk to an even tinier one, because you can live in the same areas rich locals would choose to live. Doesn't mean you're scared to go elsewhere, especially as a guy. Risks are much higher for females though, say your Mum or sister were over visiting you in the country, or a girl you were dating was making her way over to your place and back, you'd want to be living in a luxurious area. 'Snatchers' as the Filipinos call them (muggers) usually target women for their handbags, same in Vietnam.
  13. Oh yeah I'm not surprised at all. I wasn't saying anything is likely to happen if you walked down a dark alleyway, just that there's no reason to even bother doing so and test it out.
