  1. Reading in the news just now that a lot of Thai`s are starting to wear a lot of pink and yellow shirts today to show respect for the most beautiful man that Thailand has. Is it ok for a falang to do the same or would it be considered an insult??
  2. I see the news reports about a bout a lot of rain and flooding in Bangkok however since I`m only a tourist and don`t normally spend a lot of time in Bangkok all the different places mentioned still leave me a little lost. Apart from an umbrella and perhaps some waterproof shoes is there really that much rain to worry about? I`ve got a friend coming next week and will be staying close to where MBK is...
  3. Sorry posted in the wrong place
  4. So how far a driver is it??? An idea on how much to offer a taxi guy for the days hire to take me there???
  5. Can someone please tell me where this place is located??? I was sent these photos by a close friend who tells me they are just outside of Bangkok but I don`t know where. Also if possible what would be the best way to try and visit them... Thanks
  6. A friend is in CM at the moment and tells me he was at the night market and he went past a shop selling some belt buckles but now can`t find it again. Anybody else seen it in thier travels??? I`m stuck here in Perth Aus so can`t help him look.
  7. I am slowly learning to never rush a Thai person but it`s been over a week with no reply to my email. Do you think it would be rude if I sent him a text??
  8. Sorry for the late reply, I took a look at the home page and apart from the home page being english the rest was all in thai. I have emailed the co-ordinator so I`m hoping he will be able to help.
  9. Got a friends daughter attending university in Phrae and I`m hoping to be able to surprise her and her family at her graduation in October. Anybody have any idea what dates it could be? If I can find out the universitys web page would it be on there somewhere??
  10. There is no pain, just some loss of hearing.
  11. Ear ache. Took a trip to Phi Phi island about 3 days ago and took part in some scuba diving for the first time. Didn't really go down deep but still a lot of fun. Since then there has been a small pain in my left ear and it's hard to hear at times. Does anybody know a good drug store or doctor along Patong beach I can ask for advice from. I am sure it's only something minor.
  12. Not too computer smart but I think I did, what I am hoping to find is one thats shows the streets as well as some of the temples etc. My friend and I will be hiring scooters to look around with.
  13. Hoping to be in Phuket soon so I am trying to do some research before I arrive. Does anybody know where to find or is it possible to upload a tourist map of Phuket.
  14. When in Bangkok, is there a rule or guide when it comes to bargaining with Tuk tuks or taxis the fares?? Should you aim for half of whatever they offer or a little bit more than that?
  15. Hoping to be in Bangkok soon so I am trying to do some research before I arrive. Does anybody know where to find or is it possible to upload a tourist map of Bangkok. I need to try and find the main roads, train stations and ferry stops as well as where the main temples are. I usually get one on arrival but am hoping to give myself a head start.
