Re: Demolition of restaurants + shops in Poon Suk road

there is a big difference between an area that is an eating and drinking area and one that is just a drinking area with a few food-carts.

Re: Help to Find Hotel of last visit

Love that Soi, very quiet, feels very safe, good parking, 5 walk to the beach, 5 min walk to MV, nice guest-friendly hotels.

Re: With 15 daily deaths, Thailand world's deadliest country for motorcyclists

But few if any of the deaths are people from military, political or wealthy families, so whats the problem?

I am amazed at te figure that 53% of riders wear helmets, I would have guessed about 30%. It is MUCH higher in BKK of course.

Re: ANNIVERSARIES

Tomorrow, Monday is VICTORIA DAY in Canada. The ONLY country to celebrate the Old Queen's Birthday (Actually on the 24th) Its a nice holiday just as spring is arriving in Canada and is one thing to remind us that Canada is NOT American.

Re: Demolition of restaurants + shops in Poon Suk road

i guess they feel it insults their holy place, i dont think that parisseans would like restaurants up against Notre Dame or British people like them up against Westminster Abbey or other churches..

Re: Taxi or something at nightime

most people get at least time and a half for working after midnight, so if 300b is a good 3pm fare then 400-500 at 3am sounds reasonable.

Re: Where did you meet your girlfriend or wife?

my favorite story. He was in a store in BKK trying to return a defective purchase, they were doing the 'no speak English' defense. She was the customer next in line and stepped up and helped him.

Re: Blueport: The Wine connection

The place is far too busy for the staff's liking-- they have to do something to keep the volume down, they can get hours behind on their texting as things are at the moment.
