  1. Many appear to be still there on Sukhumvit soi 3 and surounding soi's
  2. They also want to start cracking down on the prostitues in Bangkok, Phuket etc. Sex tourism is no good for Thailand it breeds crime and corruption. There are plently of available beautiful ladies who work hard at real jobs in Thailand. Bar Girls are bone idle and lazy. Time there was a real big move to stamp out prostitution in Thailand. Let the sex tourists go to other countries in S.E. Asia.
  3. I think there is more to this story!
  4. Why do people commenting assume he was coming here for sexual gratification? Too many people on this forum with one track minds and no repect. RIP.
  5. They need to ensure all taxis have rear seat belts for a start. On the meter issue if the driver complies I always give 40 to 50 Baht extra. For drivers who refuse to engage the meter you have to negotiate. I find late evening the difference between fares can be 100 to 200 baht. If a driver asks too much I just wait for the next taxi. Plenty in Bangkok
  6. The rule of Law here is non existent. For a crime like this they should be executed. Thailand seems to be getting more and more dangerous, why?
  7. Not all Bangkok taxicabs have seat belts in the back. When travelling I often have a big case that won't fit in the boot because of the gas tank. The case has to go on the front passenger seat. The bigger taxivans are not always available.
  8. I tried to flag down a cab 2 nights ago from On Nut near to big C to Sukhumvit soi 2 time 10 pm. Four cabs stopped and refused. The fifth accepted
  9. Brutal thug. Deserves the same treatment but alas it will not happen. RIP little boy. Another child killed before he had a chance of life. Sickening.
  10. Disgusting! I think a few tarnishing the good name and practices of many. But bad things happen in other faiths that are worse, particularly when involving Children.
  11. Pie in the sky thinking again.
  12. When you get it you will know about it.
  13. This guy was stupid. No matter how big and tough you think you are it's a mistake to take more than one Hooker to a room, just asking for trouble. How did they manage to break into a safe? Anyway, I hope these two slags get a lot of adverse publicity back in Khon Kaen
  14. If you can afford it travel Business Class. I fly on Thai airways and have a Platinum card. Usually, I have no problems and can use the first class lounge on the way out. Coming back in you sometimes have to wait a bit at the priority lane but not usually more than 10 or 15 minutes. Basically, Suvarnabhumi is getting too busy now for the volume of traffic. In addition the airport is badly organised and you have a majority of typical very lazy Thai staff. It is only going to get worse. Having said that Tokyo Narita can be bad sometimes for delays getting both in and out which is surprising. Again Narita cannot handle the volume of traffic at certain times of the day.
