  2. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    MA-LA Craze Not an actual restaurant visit/review but a note to keep an eye out for the new Thai restaurant craze of MA-LA (Chinese for spicy) Basically a bbq type restaurant with spicy Szechuan pepper sauce on various things on skewer and of course Szechuan pepper soup. This trend were first around Northern Thailand and is now everywhere in Bangkok, most are outdoor type like a all you can eat BBQ place, with probably cheap and not very good quality ingredients, but hey, if you want tingly MA-LA Szechuan pepper, they've got it. It's only a matter of time when one opens in Pattaya
  3. Article is wrong, from Bangkok to Pattaya is 60 baht, pay at Pattaya's gate same 60 as before where you pay at the Chonburi Gate until April The old booths at Chonburi (Pan Thong) are being dismantled now

  6. It's the Socks and Sandals Thread

  7. Highway 7 toll

    In theory once they got rid of the big Chonburi bound tolls and each exit has their own tolls there should be less queue as Pattaya bound traffic only pays once to exit at Pataya, and Rayong bound traffic pays at 36 exit, and countless other along the way like Sri Racha/Laem Chanbang The remaining bottleneck would then be the Bangkok bound final toll

    On the 7 as you head just past the airport, before turning into 9 there's roadworks and congestion in the afternoon/evening of around 40 minute wait
  9. พร้อมเพย์

    years ago DTAC, the Mobile company called their pay as you go line DPrompt, and in Thai it sounds like ดี พร้อม
  10. Highway 7 toll

    Just because the sign aren't temporary doesn't mean it can't be replaced at a later date at significant cost
