  1. the tax on wine and recently fruit wine is simply a foreigner tax, same as anything else foreigners like, doesn't affect y hiso Thais they will pay regardless,money no object, just another way of discouraging long term expats from living here along with ever changing visa laws. Yes and 9% as well and still crazy prices, about 900bht range., can't see em selling any of that .
  2. not in my experience of driving past there a few times a week for years now.

    Trang village head pulls Australian's yacht ashore

    not surprised, most Thai people are like this, all the dodgy ones are tourist areas, though it's only a small percentage.
  4. That traffic light has not worked for years. maybe not repairing as there is a foot bridge 100yds away for a safe crossing.
  5. Judging by the lack of choice in shops now the sale of wine has nose dived. It will continue as long as there is this ridiculous high tax is in place. I have cut back from 2-3 bottles a week to one now. Sent from my vivo 1601 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  6. Seems like I am right, it is illegal, under cover home brew shops....
  7. must of changed the law then, where are these shops?
  8. You can't buy any ingredients for making wine or brewing beer in Thailand, it's illegal, my wife used to make rice wine (saki), very much an under cover operation.
  9. Like all imported goods that foreigners like it gets taxed to ell. I go to Cambodia regular and buy there. Sent from my vivo 1601 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Two more Chinese airlines flying into Pattaya

    This is really bad news, Pattaya just does not have the infrastructure to handle more Chinese tourists, more than enough now.
  13. good to see a follow up on crime. Usually reported and then nothing, anyway the guy driving the truck was 100% to blame, hope he's not allowed to drive again, but I'm not holding my breath.
  14. Besides being tastier, it keeps you going all day, unlike a pad thai.
