Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

Only just discovered this thread! Are you a regular visitor to Thailand? I don't think tourists are put off by passport control delays if the rest of their experience is wonderful.

Re: Should I take a taxi to the airport early morning

Any taxi recommendations or guess on the price? there must be somebody who knows the price and can give suggestions for a driver? And yes, he said they need to get to the airport at 9.00 a.m. I gave up trying to make suggestions because somebody always knows better on this subject. Amen brother! No...

You can't generalise based on age.
But that is exactly what insurance companies do! Matters not be it health insurance or life insurance or even auto insurance. What do think actuarlial tables are?

Re: Commercial Party Houses Operating in Residential Developments

^ BB, you live about a mile from Baan Khun Por and you "suffer". I gotta tell you that is a whole lot different from living across the street from a party house. Indeed, it is not even close.

Cheers!

Re: New Petrol Station Soi 94

The operators on 94 are usually 10 Bt higher /liter and you will NEVER get a smile. You WILL get petrol spilled all over everything as they whip the nozzle out of the tank.

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

So what internet thingy do we believe?

Now that the final layout has started to show itself I think that it is going to be a total cock-up and who can be surprised about that ...

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

" If airlines hired and supervised their cockpit crew like van companies obtain and schedule drivers, there would be plenty of plane crashes. "

In it's own way there are all ready of plane crashes. The equivalent of a jumbo jet crashes here in Thailand every week.
