  1. Krabi Town seeking studio/one broom to rent

  2. Airport parking ?

    Only just found this question, sorry. Parking at KBV is 150 per day and perfectly safe, I regularly park there. Nowhere else really to park nearby. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  3. Badminton, gym and yoga

    Push Gym in Ao Nang is quite good and never too busy. http://www.push-krabi.com/ For Yoga Marina Yoga gets good reviews from my friends. http://marinayoga.com/ Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. On more than one occasion I have been first into the immigration hall and there are no staff at the booths. Everyone just waits in the middle of the room until someone comes out of the office to open a booth. There are 8 booths and I have never seen more than 3 open at once. My friend waited over an hour last week when 2 aircraft arrived at the same time. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. Snow destinations near to Thailand

    Where would be a good place for a novice skier to go from Bangkok for a few days skiing ? All the normal add ons like, not too expensive, not long flights and good food.
  6. Krabi immigration is notoriously slow so try and get off the plane quickly. AirAsia flights normal get a remote stand and you will be bussed to terminal 1 so stand near the doors to get off first. Checked in luggage is normally quick but customs X-ray almost everyone’s carry on bags. You check in for Thai Smile upstairs in terminal 1 then need to walk to terminal 2 which is only about 5 minutes away. securit screening is usually quite quick at terminal 2.
  7. Quite normal practice. Your TW is still allowed to drive, she is not banned or suspended from driving. The officer is just retaining the licence until the matter is resolved.
  8. Make sure you are happy with the Thai keyboard that most are supplied with. I really struggle with my wife’s laptop with Thai letters on it.
  9. I have tried searching but found nothing similar. Admins please feel free to move if this is the wrong forum. My wife has been offered a sales/consultancy job by a foreign company based in Europe. Basically her job will entail finding customers in Thailand and directing them to this company. The salary they are offering is substantially more than she currently earns and does not involve commission. Does anybody know the current tax thresholds and percentages for Thai workers? Up until now she has only worked for companies that sort out the tax for her but now she will be responsible for paying tax herself as it is a foreign company.

  10. A dogless Society

    I hate to disagree but there are many many stray Soi dogs in Ao Nang. obviously the OP was in the wrong places. Noperhatara beach has quite a few which is why I stopped jogging there. The area around monkey beach has a lot as does the Ao Namao road near the Police Station. Obviously the temple has quite a few too. the Koh Lanta animal welfare place comes to Ao Nang and rounds up and sterilises strays as often as they can.
  11. What type of dog is this?

    Shihpoo ? Labradoodle? Cockapoo? All very posh names, but it’s just a fancy way to say you have a mongrel. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. Holiday in Majorca (Mallorca)?

    I like Can Picafort or Alcudia as they are a bit busier but Port Soller is very nice and quiet. The wooden train through the mountains and citrus groves is quite spectacular. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  13. When duty free isn't.

    In the duty free at my local airport a bottle of Sangsom is 600 baht. In the local 7/11 it is less than 300 baht. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  14. We went to the MFA with the Affidavit. We were approached as we entered by one of the helpful translators. Gave her the papers while we had lunch. An hour later she came back with the completed translations. We took them upstairs where it was chaos and I had no idea. So we rang the translator back and she took all our paperwork and we went home. It was all posted back to us a few days later. If I had to do it again I would just hand over everything to the translator, pay the money and just go home and wait for the postman. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  15. You don’t need to register your marriage in the UK. Your marriage will be recognised in the UK if: 1) you follow the correct process according to the law in Thailand 2) it would be allowed under UK law Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
