  1. Sorry, the flight is on Air Canada NOT Korean.
  2. Thanks all. Just to clarify a bit. I'll be flying Korean airlines from CNX (Chiang Mai), layover in Seoul, to Vancouver and then on to LVegas, all on one ticket, straight thru. Want to know if I have to pick my bags, clear customs and immigration, prior to the flight on to Vegas. Or, just arrive, go to a transit point, direct to my departing flight.
  3. Wondering if anyone from Thailand, flying in to Vancouver, and on to Las Vegas made this trip recently. Would like to know if it's necessary to clear customs and immigration in Vancouver or do it all in Las Vegas. What is the transition process? Is there a transitioning area that you can go direct to your departure for domestic airlines. Any info on this really appreciated.
  4. You might try Thai Watsadoo, on super highway heading to Lamphun (not far). Second choice maybe Global House.
  5. Has anyone flown this direct flight, from CNX to Seoul, then direct to Las Vegas. I know the drawback is the 13-14 hour layover in Seoul in each direction. Just curious about the airline itself, old aircraft?, pleasantries, etc. Also, have anyone flown in business class? Thanks all...
  6. I read up a little about the "prompt pay" . Apparently it just came in to existence the second week of Jan. From what I gather, you have to sign up (some bank, don't know which one). I stopped checking about it because I surmised this system will be charging a fee to do the transfer of funds. That's about all I know - not interested...
  7. Our tax lady at the tax office told up if we have "prompt pay" refund would be within a week. If not, it would take up to 45 days to receive the check. Prompt pay is fairly new and don't know anything about it. It has to deal with funds from one institution to another...
  8. Hey Bill, did you receive a receipt back in the mail. If not, your TM30 was probably used as a basketball and thrown in the trash...
  9. My wife had both knee replacements 3 yrs ago by Dr. Chanakarn. Also, a good friend had both replaced by him just over a year ago. Wife cost per knee was 155,000 at Rajevej Hosp. So did my friend. His cost was a tad bit more, I think he said 165,000. My wife just had a hip replacement 8 days ago. Same hospital but not Dr. Chanakarn. This was an emergency situation and had to use the Ortho surgeon at Rajevej. Dr. Chanakarn has his own clinic just over the river from the hospital. He will however, do the surgery at any hospital you choose, which I'm sure would be much more expensive. I compared the prices from my wife's knee surgery to the hip surgery. Everything on the detailed list increased in price. Needles, tubes, monitors per day charge, EVERYTHING. So my guess that the cost would be near 175,000 - 180,000 baht. Check the other hospitals, I'm sure you can't beat this price Oh, here's his clinic phone number: 053204545 hours are 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. m-f, Sat 9-12 a.m. Be sure to call first, he makes trips out of the country now and then to train/give speeches. Hope all goes well for you.
  10. Yes, would also like to know what you had at Miguels. I love the food there. Never had a bad plate. My favorite Mex food. You should give it another try something different.
  11. Is it possible that the labels were somehow switched. Meaning the price labelling is wrong.
  12. Yes, Amorn sells the walkie talkies. I bought four of them recently. My wife had to show her ID card to purchase. The red units only, and do not require a license. The black units, DO require a license. We bought them at the Hang Dong (mai Hia) Big C. I know they carry them at the Big C Extra location.
  13. That doesn't sound right. That's more than if you purchased a R/T ticket off the get go. You can fly Business Class on China Southern R/T for 85,000 baht. That's CNX to JFK. I used the dates of 29 Oct for 21 days. Do a search on Google ITA Software.
  14. I had a kidney stone removed from my uretha at McCormick hospital about 9 months ago. FOrgot the doc's name, but I was very happy with his demeanor and performance. Spent 3 days in hospital and the bill came out to 48,000 baht. I'd recommend him and the hospital. Walk in the front entrance, go straight thru to the next set of double glass doors and you will be in the nurses station he works from. Same workstation as the brain surgeon doctor. Oh, the cost also included a CT scan which is normally around 9,000 baht.
  15. Send me a PM with your email or phone number. I know a Dutch fellow, living here in CM that teaches several students, 3 days a week.
