  1. If you are fearful, don't do it. You'll react inappropriately under stress. If you are a drinker, don't do it. If you like taking risks, don't do it. If you are of the mind that anything can happen and you are ready for it, then ride. Don't expect everyone to play by the rules, so keep your eyes on the road ahead and your mirrors positioned properly. If pottering around the island, no need to go quicker than 40 km/hr most of the time. But a good road user doesn't need us to tell them.
  2. Low Ridership on Bell Bus to Pattaya

    I read the post. It is from the originating poster. The one who utilised the Bell Travel Service shared transfer to the door for 250 baht. So "Cost of waiting time + bus + waiting time + baht bus may be almost the same?" makes no sense. It is from/to your door service. I'm not a retired pensioner either, so what has that to do with anything?? Do you equate every moment of your waking life with a monetary value? You should stop.

    He is referring to a 'to the door' service. Does the baht bus from North Pattaya/Thappraya take you to your accommodation regardless of where it is situated?

    There is always someone around is a bus is due or leaving. Poor planning on your part. But since you had the option of the 389, no harm done.
  5. Low Ridership on Bell Bus to Pattaya

    What is this? Cost of waiting time? How do you quantify that? Baht bus? There is no baht bus in the equation. Perhaps we should include and quantify the cost of pointless posts on Thaivisa.... The topic concerns the Bell Travel Service transfer to your door for 250 baht.

    You can, but you take the risk of the bus you want to get on being full. You can simply book it on the spot. Tip: They have an iPad at hand if you ask nicely.
  7. I'm surprised that no one uploaded a video of the Songthaew that got lassoed by a wire hanging between telegraph poles on either side of the street on the Naklua Road, close to Soi 18..

  9. You can top up with 12 baht via machines outside 'convenience shops'.
  10. Using a fee free CC such as the Halifax Clarity or Barclays Travel Platinum over the bank counter, as opposed to an ATM, can avoid the 220 baht ATM fee and avails you of the full MasterCard/Visa rate without deduction. You can then place the resulting cash in to your bank account. Beware that some banks will try to charge you nonetheless, such a Siam Commercial Bank. So avoid using banks that attempt to charge you for over the counter cash advances.
  11. Usually the only way is by withdrawing via ATM and then depositing to account. Having a UK CC can avoid the use of an ATM.
  12. Still waiting for feedback on post #11......
