  1. As if a robbery at a message centre is new. Ive often had 500baht slipped out from my socks when I've been "distracted".
  2. Murder today @ Big C , Udon Thani .

    I just read this story and then clicked to another page before realising that if this was in Ireland i'd be shocked by it,but seeing as it's in Thailand i'm not the least be suprised by it. RIP
  3. Houston...sorry...Pattaya, we have a problem!

    Now if they still allowed smoking on the beach all those cigarette butts would have helped soak up the rain
  4. Annoying Soi Dogs

    Any chance they'll 'look after' crowing cockerels and those numb nuts who rev their motorbikes for 5 constant minutes for no apparent reason
  5. Good tv series

    Yep. Have to agree with you on most of this,although it does have lots of opinions of both sides and touches a lot of things that Americans won't like seeing about their own country, most of it still focuses on the poor white college guy who has to be drafted for War instead of the real victims, the Vietnamese and that blacks got the wrong end of the drafting process. Amazing quality footage and some of it heartbreaking to watch. I'd love to know what happened to the North Vietnamese soldiers who spoke out against their government in it. Brilliant series and a must watch. The BBC are showing it in 10 one hour episodes but its really 18 hours in length in 10 episodes and its on the net.
  6. 45min wait at immigration is back

    So can someone tell me what is the wait time for Thai passport holder. I usually use the Thai passport line with my Wife and two Kids,all Thai passports except myself. Do you still have to wait in line or do you just go straight to the Thai immigration desk bypassing the longer lines.

  8. I honestly have no issue with this. I can see BKK been the most popular city in the world. From everything i've seen in BKK and from people i speak to. I never hear anyone saying hey are going to New York or Los Angeles. It's always Thailand and onto Australia or other Asian countries. Both airports are always rammed full and when i do a bit of plane spotting, i've never seen more large planes landing at any other airport. No problem with this report and cannot see why Mastercard would make up the figures.
  9. Booze sales banned on beach starting in Oct.

    See, that would be the easy and sensible thing to do so they obviously do the opposite.
  10. Booze sales banned on beach starting in Oct.

    Seriously, what are these people thinking. They really seem to be trying their hardest to keep tourists from visiting Thailand. I've decided to stay away from Phuket because of the new regulations on the beaches down their. I've young kids and i like visiting the beach so i don't want my kids been burned from the sun due to no umbrellas on the beach. Sun cream only does so much. Are they trying to keep the beaches clean? Maybe hire 3 people to walk the beach and clean it instead of keeping tourists away and vendors earning no money. Maybe if tourists could see more rubbish bins they would dispose of their rubbish.
  11. I can't help with your request but well done on manning up to take full control of you son life. Give him a proper upbringing instead of a village life with the Granny.
  12. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    Can anyone recommend some nice Farang food down either side of Soi 4(beach road or second road around central marina shopping center). The kids can only eat so much pork and rice and noodle soup. Cheers.
  13. Bringing up children in Thailand or UK? Safety?

    So they possibly feel the same as Thai people when lots of farang come to their country and cause problems?
  14. Bringing up children in Thailand or UK? Safety?

    That was the sort of argument that won the Brexit vote. Scaremongering.
  15. Bringing up children in Thailand or UK? Safety?

    Its amazing to think that Thais never even learn about WW2. I watch some war documentaries with the Wife when we can and she is very interested in them. Full of questions and one of the few times her phone gets put aside. Even at the weekend we were having a few glasses of wine while watching the Hurricane on the news and she checked her Thai news. She told me that all the main news never even mentioned the hurricane for more than a few seconds and had more news about Chompoo Araya having twins. My 4 year old even knows who Donald trump is. When i go back to Thailand in February, i'm sure the in laws will still not know who he is.
