  1. In town all the agencies with minibuses to Samui are at 5am. Outside the consulate in Penang they claim to have a bus that leaves at 3.30pm (same as Hat Yai time) Would I be right in thinking they'll take you to Hat Yai and ask you to come back at midnight for second leg, so you can catch first boat to Samui in morning. Sorry I forgot to ask them at the time. cheers
  2. Nowhere is Thailand seems to have Malaysian Ringgits. Do you think any current exchanges will be available at 8pm in Penang? Cheers
  3. Magic, thank you. It does say something about 12 months on site, I just didn't know it topped up automatically.
  4. Thank you! I have the 9 gb package. when I clicked on the first link it showed my number, remaining balance, usage, refill options etc. I was hoping if I increased my balance using the machine I could use preexisting funds to top up. on the refill screen it looks like it just takes debit cards, but maybe preexisting balance will be possible if I have enough. I think my current package might already be set. cheers
  5. Would I just put money on the machine using my number then click on that link to reapply for package?
  6. Those orange machines outside 7/11, I sort of get how you could top up your phone. But obviously with iPads you have a number, but you can't send messages or enter codes. It it even possible to top up a DTAC internet only package on the machines? Advice on how to do it would be much appreciated. cheers
  7. I have family visiting in a while, so I'll probably just do the same. I've never ordered from a Thai website before.
  8. Does anyone know if they have these around? Only been able to find mini toasted sandwich makers that look similar. cheers
  9. Thanks guys! Didnt know there was an embassy there. I'll definitely ask about it when booking travel. Found out you can leave 8am here and reach Penang by 11pm on bus, so in time to apply for visa next morning. Train arrival in Butter is 1pm and extra day. Only thing now is how to get back from Penang. I'm guessing it will be a minibus to Surat Thani via Hat Yai, but probably night there and boat in morning.
  10. What is the quickest way to reach Penang for a visa run? Also, how would you get back fast straight after picking passport up? cheers
  11. I'm talking about the flight out of country you need to show the consulate.
  12. Where do people buy flights with the intention of canceling them for Tourist Visa proof? I was going to buy an Air Asia one, but it said in the small print they don't give back airport tax to any flight leaving Thailand. Shame because the actual flight was only 100bht, it was basically all airport tax. its so cheap I'll probably buy anyway, but just wondering if there was a popular one. cheers
  13. Ha, it's someone messing around.
  14. Thanks, I'll check Jib and Power Buy. I bought a laptop from Banana IT in Lamai years ago. I think they only had a few legit Windows options. Now they only have 6 laptops in total.
  15. Yep, I was thinking Linux.
