  1. Don't know much about Bangkok then- it's oldest nightclub dating back to 1957, and that's the stone age here. Between Sukhumvit 5-7 and opened when there were still rice patches and banana trees growing up the road Opened as the Copa cobana it was 12 years old when this was taken in 1969, on the left. The Landmark Hotel is where the shops were on the right. Manhatten hotel on soi 15 had just opened. Looks like this photo was taken around mid day- where are they all? That happens to be my photo when I was there from 1968-1969 and originally posted in this topic - http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/575072-bangkok-photos-from-1967-1968-period/#entry5547269 So be sure credit is given.

    Your Electric Bill...you must confess!

    What is the basis of the increases over that period: increased cost per unit, increased consumption resulting from lifestyle, higher temperatures leading to increased consumption or ageing equipment? The vast majority of it is based on the time of year. You will see the peaks are all in April with May usually where it starts falling again. This year due to the extended hot season April was only slightly higher then previous years but May increased above April's usage due to higher overall heating days. A couple of things, both April and May this year we had 5 day holidays which means I'm at home with the air on 24 hours/day for that period. @Naam "doing a graph showing cost in Baht is interesting but slightly misleading when seen in context with your question." Not really, the difference in cost over the period has been quite stable relative to percentage fluctuation and usage. But to fill in the rest of my data: As you can see, usage obviously follows cost very closely.
