  1. Not only Koh Lipe, Chinese tourists are swamping the once beautiful island's and destroying the ecosystem by their sheer numbers. I just returned from Koh Chang, koh samet, and koh Larn, overwhelmed by Chinese, won't be going back sadly.
  2. Yellow book counts for nothing at Jomtien immigration. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  4. It's been 400 bht in Jomtien immigration for years, I have to make a change of address for my motor and need a cert of residence but now will have to pay an extra 2000bht for a TM 30 form !! That is the latest scam here, illegal I reckon, it's about time Bangkok reigned in these fifedoms . Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. I'm not surprised by your refusal, I have similar one when I sponserd my partner of over 8years for a tourist visa to the UK, and submitted over £80,000 of funds to support her visit and $900 in her bank account, which were completely ignored, I suspect the ECO, did not get this information which was not submitted (lost) by his office staff.
  6. Never change your money at a bank, usually 1-1.5 bht lower for GBP than a private booth, don't change on Friday to Monday either, lower rate at weekend, even exchange Booth's of the same company can vary up to .5 bht, makes a big difference if you're changing £1000-2000.

  9. Border runs.

    Thanks Joe, we go back to Cambodia at the end of her current stamp, return a week later with 60 day visa on a Saturday, should we go to Jomtien on Monday and fill in the TM 30, and will it be free? Sent from my B3-A30 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. My Cambodian g/f has just returned from a visa run to the ban pakard border, it's her second one this month and the stamp in her passport has a date stamp in red both on the departure card and on passport page. Never seen this before, is it possible it's saying that's the last time you can do this in out run? I thought Cambodians​ could do as many 14 days in - out as they like. She normally gets a 30 day extension on her 60 day tourist visa but had Jomtien wanted her to fill in a TM 30 form this time and wanted 1600 bht fine, never had this before in 6 years of getting a 30 day extension.

  11. No, my Thai wife travelled from the UK to Thailand on her expired passport last year.
  12. I have a house up there, been down to the river with hordes of people, tv camera crews etc, never seen one, or never seen captured by the tv crews either, it's a mythical event, same as the naga dragons that live in the Mekong.
  13. New point system aims to weed out bad drivers

    How can this work? A lot of drivers don't have a licence anyway, those that do would carry on driving if they racked up to many points , if stopped pay the usual fine and on your way. The only way to stop people driving is to confiscate the car, you get it back when you have a licence, works in the UK, but not a cat in Hell's chance here in Thailand
  14. Anyone had surgery at Pattaya City Hospital?

    Went there for treatment after a motobikes accident, wouldn't even look at me until I paid 10,000 up front which I didn't have in my pocket but I had insurance!! But the level of treatment was woeful to say the least and hardly any English spoken, I would be very wary, I would not go back there, seems to be for Thai only.
