  1. Start hitting them with massive fines like that Russian on racha island.
  2. Curcumin (Turmeric) in Pill Form ?

    Why don't you just buy the powder? You don't need tablespoons of it either. 1/4 of a teaspoon is enough. I have mine in a cup of tea with some ginger (ideally fresh but power is fine also).
  3. Phuket weather 2018

    Friend of mine has been in Patong since new years and he said it's been relatively good. Odd showers but nothing heavy. I arrive 2nd week of Feb so hopefully I get plenty of sunshine.
  4. My next trip is in a few weeks time and I'd like to make an effort to get out of Patong and explore some beaches further away to take some photos. Ao Sane, Ya Nui and Laem Ka to name a few. My plan is to get a taxi from Patong to one of the beaches. Have a walk around, relax then find a tuk tuk or taxi to take me to the next one. Finally once done find a taxi or tuk tuk to take me back to Patong. I was thinking if it's anything like Patong all I need to do is keep an eye out for any going past. Will that be ok? I don't drive a motorbike and don't want to hire a car there either. Thanks
  5. Images Of Phuket And The Andaman

    Very nice. Is that laem ka?
  6. Tried searching for the pic based on the text in the pic. It’s been taken down. Hopefully it will pop up on Facebook at some point. :)
  7. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Well the statistics were wrong then. Weather in Phuket can sometimes be localized so I'm not sure that would be reflected in an overall report for the month. I was in Patong. I've just checked my hotel dates and I was there for 7 days, not 9! Of those days, going through my photos we only had clear skies and sun for 3 days. I know this as I did day trips on all 3 day. All the other days were overcast and heavy showers. I was there btw so that's how I know.
  8. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Not meaning to call you a liar but I wasn't exaggerating when I said it rained a lot for over a week. A lot of people I've spoken to who live on the island say that was a freak month and they have never seen that before. Fingers cross it will be a bit more normal this time.

    Is it too soon to say how bad it will be in February?
  10. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Ah crap really? I’m all booked now for 3 weeks from the end of Jan and was really hoping for some regular dry season weather. I guess I’ll just wait to see the monthly TMD forecast and see if I need to change any plans.
  11. Heavy rain, cold weather predicted for weekend

    Is this the end of the rainy season lingering on?
  12. Phuket weather alert warns of heavy rains next week

    Are there any weather experts here? I was just wondering what the recent La Niña arrival announcement means for weather in Thailand in the coming few months. I was in Thailand last January, and experienced some of the worst weather I’ve ever seen in Phuket. During the 12 days I was there it rained almost non stop for maybe 8 or 9 of them. I’ve been coming to Thailand around the same time of year for around 7 years now and sure you get the odd shower but I’d never seen anything like that.
