  1. Christmas Dinner

    I appreciate that this has been done in the past but can someone give me an update on what's a good place in C Mai for a traditional Christmas Day lunch. Don't want to go to an expensive hotel and do not want a boozy pub either. Something in between about 1,000 baht per person or less that is child friendly. Seasons greetings hehehe ... bit early!!
  2. Renew health insurance or not?

    Many thanks for the helpful comments. Does anyone have any knowledge of costs for serious health care eg heart problems or cancer treatment at Thai Government hospitals?
  3. I've had health insurance (Thai Insurance) here since I was 55 yrs, now I'm 62. Up to 60 yrs I paid 30,000 baht pa. Once I hit 60 it went up to 38k pa and will rise again when I'm 65 and 70. The policy ends when I'm 75. I will get 100k if I survive to 75 and my wife will get 100k if I die before then. I get health care cover of a few hundred thousand each year. Haven't had to claim so far but I know the chances I will are going to increase. Not sure whether to keep paying or bank it and hope for the best. Don't need it at the moment for retirement visa. any help thanks
  4. does anyone know when the old model available in Thailand will be updated as per the Indian made model?
  5. Can anyone recommend a minibus and driver hire company in the Hua Hin area? Seven of us are planning 2 trips: - from Hua Hin to Prachuap Khiri Khan town - from Prachuap town to River Kwai thanks for any help ...
  6. Doi Mon Cham

    Hi we are thinking of heading up to Doi Mon Cham around Christmas time this year. Will be driving from Khon Kaen and stopping at C Mai. Not sure whether to take public transport from C Mai or drive up there. Both me and the car are a bit old and not too good going up/down steep windy hills, struggled a bit with Baan Rak Thai last year. Is it easy to get a red songthaew there from Chiang Mai? And once there do you need your own transport? many thanks for any help
  7. Sunday roast in Bangkok ...

    Heading down to Bkk soon and in search of a good Sunday roast. Requirements : - not too expensive eg no more than 700 pp - be family friendly and not too "pubby" as we have a child Have tried the Huntsman at the Landmark before it was ok but wondered if there is anything better for the same price? Thanks for any recommendations

  11. Should I buy a new Ford Ecosport

    The 2016 Ford Ecosport is said to be able to use the nice and cheap fuel E85. Sounds good but does it reduce the car's performance noticeably? And I've read it can cause long term damage to the fuel system?
  12. Should I buy a new Ford Ecosport

    Checked out the Honda BRV... good points - price ok and good boot space bad points - from the side just looks like a slightly taller Honda Mobilio... The Ford is still top of my wanted list but will check out next years motor shows and try and find out when the transmission problems have really been fixed.
  13. Should I buy a new Ford Ecosport

    Thankfully I'm not in a rush to get a new car so will wait a while and see what develops ... with cars looking so alike these days it's not very exciting choosing a new model, especially as I want to spend less than 800k baht.
  14. Should I buy a new Ford Ecosport

    many thanks for the very quick replies will check out the BRV and Livina.
  15. hi ... i'm considering buying a new Ford Ecosport. Have checked other options like Honda HRV and Mazda CX3 but they are too expensive. My big concern about the Ford is the problem many buyers have experienced worldwide re the dodgy powershift gearbox ... have the powershift problems been resolved on Thai Ecosports? ... Can't get any answers from Ford ... any help pls ...
