  7. the only way to reduce the congestion in Bangkok is to restrict the amount of cars using the road, be that by pooling, congestion charge, scrapping older cars, closing roads at certain times, more than one occupant lanes, but it will take some strong unpopular measures.
  8. if you look at this map = https://goo.gl/maps/VsZxhy6C8j82 where ' dream home hill' is, there are a few places to stay, if you then drive to the main road from dream home hill, turn right and drive a few hundred metres, there is a mini mart ' nine ' on the right, just after that you turn left and after about 100 metres or so immigration is then on your left see here = https://goo.gl/maps/b9WogGtGMeL2
  9. if you drive and want to make it a short break, then stay in the village, take a day driving there stay overnight, go first thing across the border, get some food nearby and take a day driving home, i have done so on a couple of occasions, cheap new accommodation is available, its a small village so a few minutes to the border, no buses to catch, but car/minibus transport to take you through no mans land and back on an individual basis, the whole thing is 900 something baht, takes about 1/2 an hour, pretty laid back and simple, i have seen a falang there who helps out.

  13. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    ghe problem with having to have medical insurance is many expats are too old to take out this insurance. I think the main worry of expats regarding immigration in Thailand is the archaic rules - 90 day reporting, tm30's and tm28's etc the inconsistency at immigration offices and due to all archaic rules the understaffing at some immigration offices , leading to big queues and having to use agents or get there at the crack of dawn.
  14. I am confused this is in the op. in reply to this post, the op relied so were the visa's issued, where the passports not sent with the application, if still not sorted maybe a trip to a Thai consulate will do the job
  15. Retirement Extension

    someone will be along with requirements for yearly extensions. the extension is made in the last 30 days of the 90 days permission to stay stamp that you will get on arrival, if you arrive with the non imm 'O' visa. giving the cash in bank time to season for the required 60 days. edit due to Ubons post above
