  1. Hotel Vista or Areca Lodge

    Thanks for the info
  2. The next time the Wife has a go at me for the time "someone" crapped under the apple tree upon returning pissed drunk from a Liverpool game, i'm showing her this thread. Bloody disgusting behaviour.
  3. Hotel Vista or Areca Lodge

    Thanks mate. I haven't really been in the area of LK Metro that much in my life so i'm not that familiar with it. Two years ago i stayed in At Mind Serviced residence at it had a similar small soi and then the second road to cross and it was a pain with kids. As you say i've been in Soi 4 and its one of the quieter Soi's down there. Cheers for the info.
  4. Hotel Vista or Areca Lodge

    I'm hoping somebody can help me decide between these two hotels. Hotel Vista looks really nice and the two bedroom suite is over 64sqm, large sofa and huge TV and balcony. All the amenities look great and its very close to the beach and Central Plaza. 100 Euros P/N https://www.booking.com/hotel/th/vista.en-gb.html?aid=311076;label=vista-w1zFfNukiCe8kPZ5TJxywgS162175162730%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg%3Afi%3Atikwd-11693535256%3Alp1007850%3Ali%3Adec%3Adm;sid=dfb18c2e4bd630b62060def977fbfcad;dest_id=-3242432;dest_type=city;dist=0;hpos=1;room1=A%2CA;sb_price_type=total;srfid=645d8c79628f6f0522295594870ceaced9257959X1;srpvid=883d385c4bf9014d;type=total;ucfs=1&#hotelTmpl Areca lodge's rooms are Family rooms at about 60sqm. Its basically one big room and while the place gets great reviews, the wifi is apparently always broken(not a huge deal) and the balcony has the aircon on it so its always blowing hot air onto the balcony.Other than that it looks great and i like that it has a nice bar outside and at the pool. I'm sure it also has a lot more choices for eating out and street food as its just of Soi Buakhao and its close to Central Festival. 90 Euros P/N https://www.booking.com/hotel/th/areca-lodge.en-gb.html?aid=311076;label=areca-lodge-*VWxNcSJ2D45PlWEk_SM7wS162175163723%3Apl%3Ata%3Ap1%3Ap2%3Aac%3Aap1t1%3Aneg%3Afi%3Atikwd-125733422%3Alp1007850%3Ali%3Adec%3Adm;sid=dfb18c2e4bd630b62060def977fbfcad;ucfs=1;srpvid=24583a4b53110309;room1=A%2CA;hpos=1;dest_type=city;dest_id=-3242432;srfid=c33121928ef77148b8d6a4c049fb67b8544856baX1;from=searchresults;map=1&msd=1#hotelTmpl Ill be with the Wife and two kids aged 3+5 and i hate crossing second road and beach road with them.
  5. Your second sentence is just ridiculous and just another way of Thai bashing. Oh Thais do this and Thais always do that. A kid been hit over the head with a stick should require a trip to the A+E in most countries
  6. LHR only 1hr 40mins Terminal 4 to T2.

    This happened to me a few years back returning from Malaysia to Ireland via Heathrow. We had to circle London a few times, then wait for our gate to be cleared of another departing plane and then the bus between terminals had a near 70 year man driving and he was in no hurry to get going. Then my Thai wife had to fill out a 24 hour transit visa form and by the time we got through even though we had nearly 50 minutes to spare Aer Lingus said we were too late. They asked us the reason for been late and put us on the next flight which left in about another hour. The lady said they would just charge Malaysian Airlines for the new flight.
  7. Thai Wife says"lets send our kids to school in Thailand" Husband answer, "be prepared to visit me in the Bangkok Hilton" How do the parents let these people away with this.
  8. Montclair Wine

    Thanks for the advice. So is all or most of the wine sold in Thailand mixed with fruit juice or is it that the higher the price the more likely its proper wine. Could a bottle of Jacobs Creek Shiraz costing 800 baht be mixed with fruit juice?
  9. Montclair Wine

    Perhaps a silly questions guys but is their anyway of telling thats its a "fruit wine" from a normal wine. Maybe something on the label.?
  10. I love how all you hard guys are slagging off the Thai Soilder, kinda like the French and Yanks did before them came into battle with the Vietnamese.
  11. It's sad to say but this is just another news story on just another day in Thailand that will be forgotten about tomorrow. Thailand has so many issues that within hours the main news story is forgotten about while in most countries this would be the main headline for days.
  12. Best 1 month SIM card

    Thanks for info. I haven't bought a sim in a few years so wasn't sure who done the best package
  13. Best 1 month SIM card

    Any idea on what packages they do,price & data allowance?
  14. Best 1 month SIM card

    Anyone know which SIM would be best for a one month trip to Thailand. Something that will provide good streaming(Youtube mostly) in Mukdahan and Patts. Price doesn't really matter if as long as it works well and has lots of data allowance.
  15. Car rental Nakhon Phanom Airport
