  1. Recently, someone told me that rain water does not go down deep enough to reach underground aquifers. (An aquifer is an underground layer of water from which groundwater can be extracted.) The man is one of those people who install underground pumps to bring water to the surface for domestic use. Does any learned member of TV know whether this is correct? It is important because I also pump all water that we need from underground. I actually ran out of ground water before the recent rains. Thank you.
  2. You can have a 2-room 70 sq. m. condo, in a beautiful building, excellent management, with swimming pool, in Chiang Mai for B 2,000,000 (B 29,000 per sq. m.). Cooler weather and no flooding ever.
  3. ....... when you think about it or more than likely someone doing the Thai bar business strategy where if you don't have any customers you double your drink prices and if you still can't break even you double them again.
  4. Don't you need PRIOR approval from the Bank of Thailand, meaning you need to prove that the funds originally were brought into Thailand from abroad? Would appreciate your info. Thank you.
  5. Tropical Crotch Rot

  6. Could you list a few such Internet sites with information about Thai people? Thank you.
  7. Post offices have a sticker in the public area that shows the rates. Also, I seem to remember that Bangkok Bank has the information on its website. Be careful, Western Union's fee for THB 100,000 is a lot! Banks are not cheap either but they are cheaper than W. U. Go online and check the websites of some banks. TMB, Bangkok Bank and a few more. Some banks (or perhaps all) do not require that you have an account with them. That also goes for the overseas beneficiary.
  8. Re entry permit at dmk

    I don't need any annual extensions, 90-day reporting or anything else because I am a permanent resident. Just the re-entry permits only. So, it is inconvenient. And, as said, I have always wondered what the form's purpose is. To me it seems completely superfluous. And immigration officers are already very busy as it is.
  9. Found Abandoned kitten ,,need advice/help

    The Chiangmai University Animal Hospital is a wonderful place. Its doctors and staff are fantastic, highly dedicated. The facilities are first class. It is not exactly cheap but worth the money. It is located on Canal Road, just past the north-western corner of the Canal Road/Suthep Road intersection (meaning going north). One more thing: you should never ever give milk to a cat! The animal does not have the enzymes to digest the milk. Forgot to mention that the Hospital accepts only small animals. You can't take your horse there!
  10. Re entry permit at dmk

    I have always wondered what the re-entry form's purpose is. I have worked in several other countries in the course of my life but none of them had this requirement. After all, if the government has given you permission to live in the country, you have valid documents to enter the Kingdom. Why then is an additional re-entry permit necessary? It is a major inconvenience, especially for people who travel abroad often, like business people, oil workers, etc. Isn't the form superfluous? If it could be abolished lives of very busy Immigration officers would become a little easier. It also reminds me of the tax clearance form that (long ago) was required every time one left the country. That required another long, time-consuming trip to the Tax Department. Eventually that requirement was cancelled because it was found to be unnecessary.
  11. I have seen that firsthand in the Philippines. Drama.
  12. .... runs a little water over their hand.....? No, no water. I have observed KFC (Chiang Mai) staff emerging from the cubicle and going straight back to the kitchen. And the very modern restaurant which Thai International used to have on the Chiang Mai-Lamphun Road (the small shopping mall near the Nong Hoi police station) did not even have soap on the premises..... Did not eat there when I found out.
  13. I am looking for: (a) an attorney who can prepare a long-term rental contract without loop holes for a house (I am the tenant); (b) a company or a man with actual knowledge of lightning arrester equipment and capable of installing it on a house; (c) a company or a man with actual knowledge of solar equipment. Are there any ThaiVisa members who can recommend knowledgeable people in Chiang Mai? If so, please list the information here or by means of a Personal Message. Thank you very much for your help!
  14. Importing a Car to Thailand

    Very true. It happened to me. Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!
