  1. BBCIPlayer

    I use Hola Free VPN and it works fine most of the time. When it doesn't work I switch to Hoxx and that works every time but their free service is limited so I only use it as a backup.

  3. New hotel in Korat?

    I'm not frowning on your post just curious why you quoted mine.
  4. Getting son to study english

    This is very true. Whenever my son is with other English speaking Leuk Kreung they only speak Thai. English has been the language in our house since my son was born although nowadays my wife only speaks Thai to him. Tried the TV in English but like your son he would change it Thai at every opportunity. You really need to get him into an English programme as he needs constant exposure to English. I think Sarasass don't let you passed the front desk as they don't want you to see how many kids are in a class. These schools are a franchise and are run as businesses putting profit before education. Good luck.

    I was 54 when my son was born and I it has given me a new lease of life. It has been a wonderful roller coaster of a ride and I have no regrets whatsoever. However I am 66 now and would not want to embark on that ride now!!

  13. I went straight to the border there last April with both passports in hand and was promptly sent to the Kap Choeng office for them to do the transfer, So take ubonjoe's advice and stop at Kap Choeng on your way to the border.

  15. Nakhon Ratchasima vs Bangkok

    You cannot compare Korat and Bangkok it is like comparing chalk and cheese. Bangkok is a major metropolis and Korat is just a overgrown country town.
