  1. Good info. I read this: " Please note that between 1 July 2017 and 30 June 2018, holders of British, German, French, Spanish, Belarus and Italian passports will not require a visa for stays of up to 15 days." Can anyone confirm? I'm going in May so if this is true, I don't need a visa.
  2. I just booked return flights tickets with Bangkok Airways to Hanoi for a total cost of 7,285 baht. Depart Chiang Mai at 9:55am (perfect) and depart Hanoi at 12:45pm (perfect). I've been there before, but I liked it and want to visit again
  3. I contacted Travel Shoppe to check whether they still organize Vietnam Visas from Chiang Mai. Their reply. For Vietnam Visa applications. Price is 3,500 baht/person ,We have to send your passport to Vietnam embassy and visa process take 5 working days.

  4. Falafel's in CM?

    I think they moved
  5. Racism in Schools

    Says the person who wrote: " Concerning young 20 something "assistants", yes. For fully qualified Thai teachers ... rubbish. " See ya.
  6. Racism in Schools

    A fully qualified foreign teacher works at International schools where salaries range from 60 - 100,000+ per month. Thais don't earn those foreign teacher salaries.
  7. Racism in Schools

    What was your wife's position? 80,000 baht/month is more than a teacher with a couple of years experience earns in the UK.
  8. Racism in Schools

    It's a strange form of racism as Thais are paid less than nearly all foreign teachers.
  9. A guy told me that he received a multiple re-entry stamp for a single entry tourist visa. He showed me the stamp and it looks real. Is this possible? I've never heard of this and only thought it was possible to get a re-entry for a non-imm visa or visa extension.
  10. Varee - International school

    'Robert''s true colors are coming through. My money is on him being a recently sacked Varee teacher who wants to get revenge on his previous employer and workmates, who I'm sure didn't like him (not surprising really). My money is also on him now being a teacher at Concord International School - gawd help 'em. I also didn't receive the promised MOE letter from him. I know Varee is licensed by the Ministry of Education so those comments were false.
  11. Not related to cleaning and servicing but I'm thinking of buying a new bike. My current one is around 14 years old. Do most shops sell the same models at the same price? Any recommendations for price but also service? My current bike is a thick tyre mountain bike but I rarely go off road. Most of my cycling is on roads or well-worn tracks. I don't want a dedicated top-end racer but will pay for quality.
  12. any idea how much it costs for a service and clean?
  13. " Many patients who have taken the capsules report feeling better. " If that's what it takes, I can also be a folk doctor. I've also got some bamboo tubes that I can use to capture pii bobs (ghosts particular to Issan villages). I'll dress up in white and act dramatically when I search to ensure I'm even more qualified.
