  1. I have no sympathy for this "British" guy. If he speaks with an Aussie accent he must have lived there for a long time. I think there may be more to this story. He was in the wrong. Gives the law abiding British a bad name. He should lose his right to live here for his stupid behaviour.
  2. I live while in BKK on 31st floor of a Condo. The lifts I believe are Japanese and they appear to be checked and serviced. Maybe it's part of the Condo's regulations? I find it hard to believe there are no lift service contracts in operation in BKK
  3. I've travelled all over China on business and this is definitely common place. If you consider this together with their rude behaviour and no respect for others nationalities you have the "Quality Tourists" Thailand wants. Farang's are fast becoming second class tourists unless you are Russian or Australian
  4. Many appear to be still there on Sukhumvit soi 3 and surounding soi's
  5. 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.
  6. Frenchman found dead as plane lands in Bangkok

    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.
  7. Taxis in Bangkok go for total revamp

    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
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
