Grand Palace, Temple of Emerald Buddha closed from Oct 1-29

Please be sure to tell your friends and acquaintances who are planning a holiday trip in October about this. Foreign based travel agents may not, and nothing worse than being surprised and not able to visit what you want to visit, especially for those who have never been here before. Pete :cheers: h...

Re: Bringing Electronic cigarette to Thailand

That gives me a bit more confidence that actual beef and chicken are going into it and not road kill or endangered species. :shock: We had a period where we had to give both dogs strong antibiotics for several weeks.
