    Vietnam Visa for USA citizen

    I am USA citizen, recently applied for tourist visa per the above URL. That one is the official VN gov't, very clear and simple. Follow the steps, pay the application fee, get a email back from them with form to you have to fill out upon arrival in VN. That and pay US$25 at the airport for this "stamping fee". Also need 2 photos with that form.

    Convert vinyl LP to MP3

    That device looks very fine by good company. I have done such conversions ripping the analog then converting, buttpain.
  3. Would be a good idea to consider London as a model, or even better Singapore.

    Dental Work

    Best dentist I have ever had is here in Phuket, has been taking care of my teeth all aspects: fillings, root canal jobs, implants. 16 years now and consistent excellent, far better than some others I had in the USA.
  5. I got such residence paper from Phuket Immigration several months ago. Qued up at volunteer desk, got number, Ok at desk a few minutes later. They had the required paper all typed out by computer, stamped, no charge. All very fine at Thai driver office.
  6. Phuket Immigration chief announced a need to report when out of province overnight. That was about 6 months ago but checking with friends here it seems to be ignored with no problems. Will have to do it after my week in VN next month but that's because will have new landing card number.

    Why you can’t beat US beef

    The trendy cognoscenti in the USA these days are eschewing the feedlot fattened beef praised by the griller and demanding "natural" grass-fed beef, free range chicken and similar fads. Grass-fed, you know, like those scrawny Thai cows you see by the roadside that wind up on your plate around here.

    Kathu Culture Street Festival until Sunday night

    Thanks for the warning. I live at Loch Palms and have regular Sunday morning meeting in Chalong, requiring a drive right through the street in the photo. Now will make sure to take the longer route around.

    International Shipping

    The Thai Post is good but their EMS is expensive. However, the Registered mail option is very good and much lower cost. Present the package at the post office and see what cost and details. Will need a declaration of contents and sticker pf that on the package.

    Crowns: Best options

    Just had one by my regular dentist at Bangkok Hospital Phuket. This is the 2d such crown and this last one was particularly difficult because top rear-most molar, had a root canal job (very well done). Best I remember was about 18k baht for the crown (root canal extra). Excellent job.
  11. The big jamup remains heading north toward and past the Circle, Has been a nightmare up to now and sure to get worse because of the needed U-turn vs. roundabout. No trips to Rawai or Nai Harn for me until this is over. Travel South not too bad but the return is very, very bad.

    Phuket lifeguards warn about blue-bottles

    The Portuguese man-of-war is a very dangerous jellyfish due to the long trail of stingers hanging below them. I have never seen the term "blue bottle" before but seems appropriate per the photo.
  13. Not just the beaches and the sea but all of the nation, highways, cities. With that comment a cleanup is a great idea, with still fines (enforced) for offenders.

    Shipping eBay from US to Thailand—Import duties?

    per UKrules above, the order is not the problem but the shipping method can be. Ship by USPS post or whatever the national post may be. DO NOT use the courier services because they very often attract customs service and duties. And for "just in case", get a clear invoice enclosed in the shipment.

    Japadogs in Thailand? If not, why not?

    Nippondogs would be good alternative. How about the similar Koreadogs?
