Re: New immigration form (TM6) goes into effect in October

Note: Go ahead and lose one sometime and see the BS you have to go through to replace it. You would think you've lost a Top Secret nuclear weapon security clearance card. A couple of months ago I realised I had lost my TM card while standing in the immigration queue at Don Meuang waiting to get sta...

Re: The History of Southeast Asia

The scene in A Now where they eat with the French family was edited out of the original version. Later they released a 'Directors cut,about 20+min longer with that scene in. It really improved the movie, gave it some perspective. Could you please expand on what you're saying please. I was baffled, ...

Re: The History of Southeast Asia

Thanks for sharing. Recent readings about the British Empire in Asia has lead me to curiosity about the French Colonization of Indo China, and I always wondered what was the true story behand that sequence in the move Apocalypse Now with the French farmes/Settlers in Laos, where Captain Willard (Mar...

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Just popped in and literally no customers. 5 staff, all very friendly. They do 90 day reporting, but don't do the yearly renewal. Good coffee outside, but I can never see having to wait that long to have enough time to get one. Can see HH immigration being the envy of the rest of Thailand ! Give it...

Re: Hua Hin resort to rebrand as Mövenpick

I have fond memories of Møvenpick from the years I lived in Switzerland in my youth, the location of its new establishment suits me - with family we usually stay in Dusit Thani, Møvenpick sounds like an atractive alternative. I will try it out

Re: Why do so many Thais look down on tourist / foreigners?

You ask--Is there some kind of racism going on? Of course there is. It is part of Thainess. In all fairness this is not justa Thai thing but an Asian thing--they feel no shame at having and expressing racist/xenophibic attitides-- In Japan, Korea and China it is much the same. I very good point and...

I met my Thai at our boxing gym. We both fight Muay Thai. We were together almost a year and everything was great.. before he cheated on me with some cute, young and naiive thai girl.
