  1. Same here, I think all this skin whitening etc is BS, :)
  2. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    cheers. All good now as I'm staying put in the UK for a while. :)
  3. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    My situation was weird as I still had an address in the UK and paid NI payments for the 13 years I spent in Pattaya but I was down as overseas as I had work permits etc in Thailand. As said I was back in the UK in 2013 and used the hospital for check ups etc for my broken wrist after an accident in Thailand. That said when I returned here in 2014 I had to sit an habitual residency test to see if I was entitled to benefits, I wasn't allowed any for 3 months, NHS was ok though. :)
  4. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    Yes I know but on her tourist and C visit visa's before we were never asked to show health insurance. She has a spouse visa now so has NHS cover. My NHS has always been fine even though I lived in Thailand previously. :)
  5. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    Pretty sure it was the same here for my wife, a Belgium visa they did ask for it but UK no. :)
  6. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    Agreed, I never used to do my 90 day, my "lawyer" guy did it for me. :) Yup, my last policy there was 40k for the year. Still good though as I had a bike accident and the bill of 230k was covered. :)
  7. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

    I agree, I think it should be a requirement, I had it when I lived there. :)
  8. Pattaya expat worries: unofficial survey

  9. Nope. I did it for 13 years. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. There are loads including Thai chapters of big clubs known around the world. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. True, these lot were wearing their colours which has probably put a bad mark against the whole club. Some are a bit rough, some are just everyday peaceful Guys joining the clubs (the Thailand members I might add), from what I've seen and experienced. I did it for 13 years and didn't really have to many hassles. I used to have biker night parties in my old bar and on the whole they were well behaved. I've only personally had one incident and that was over a bill and his mates took him outside.
  12. From my experience with the biker groups as customers the behaviour here won't be condoned at all by the biker groups in and around Thailand. The Nomads have a clubhouse in Pattaya I believe. :)
  13. The Brits heading back to Thailand?

    I used to live there and still have family etc so I still have 2 bank accounts, one has more than enough in to fund my holidays. I always keep money there for the trips or other problems as the exchange rates are bad. Cash wise if I'm not doing anything I carry maybe £50, got cards also. I'll arrive with a few hundred just incase also. :)
  14. The Brits heading back to Thailand?

    I won't exchange 20000 bht's worth in the UK due to the crap rate, I already have the baht in Thailand' I'll have English on me as well as my Thai bank books. I normally go through the Thai section as I'll be with the wife so hopefully that should be ok. :)
  15. The Brits heading back to Thailand?

    I'll look quite smart lol. All my holiday money etc is already sitting in my Thai account hence my not having a lot of cash on arrival. :)
