Re: Shirtless and Topless Farangs

I don't see the topless female bathers very often (I don't tend to use the beach during daylight hours), but what is the problem with males not wearing a shirt? I see Thai males on a daily basis without a shirt on. If the locals do it, what is the problem with Farangs? There used to be the argument...

Re: 20% of emergency patients die in traffic

But the ambulance shouldn't need a green light. As in other countries, it should go through with caution and other vehicles should give way. Oh, I forgot I was in Thailand for a second! When all the lanes are clogged up with cars and the ambulance is stuck behind 10 or so vehicles there's chance in...

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news and updates

The signs state that they're open for breakfast from 7am. I haven't been there at that time in the morning to verify if they're actually doing it or not.

Re: 20% of emergency patients die in traffic

It totally disgusts me that I've seen police officers changing the lights from their signal boxes when a convoy of "VIP" tourist busses is coming through (the ones with police escorts), but will happily allow an Ambulance with it's sirens wailing to sit in traffic and wait it's turn.

Re: Need help to understand local bus protocols

Yes they are slowing down to try and collect you. You can just ignore them or if you prefer you can shake your head to indicate you're not wanting to be picked up.

You don't need to do anything. It's the responsibility of the hotel/guesthouse owner to report you

But do those restaurants charge the 10% service charge in the first place?

Re: Bluport wine/beer bar - drinks + 10pct service + 7pct VAT on top.

So that would mean tax is included at 90% of restaurants such as night market, beach road etc. If they have a dash after the price, then yes. Presumably you can ask for a tax receipt in these cases?? :D Zip, nil it will all go to the company as it is a billed item not discretionary This much is inc...

Re: Bluport wine/beer bar - drinks + 10pct service + 7pct VAT on top.

On another thread I mentioned how I was ripped off at Peppina's, by being required to pay a service charge for a take-away pizza! I was told restaurants are meant to display this elsewhere, but aside from the take away pizza rip-off, many places sell meals exclusive of VAT and service charge. I don...

Re: Queen + Adam Lambert @ Impact Arena, Bangkok

Is that supposed to be 2,000 to 8,000? or 8,000 to 20,000?
