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: Fishermans Restaurant

Often it is with wife's family, in 2016 it was with another family who are friends of ours in Norway, the wife/mother is from Cambodia married to a Norwegian. In...

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...

Re: Where did you meet your girlfriend or wife?

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. Most Thai men are not good and do women dirty. I've been with a couple and befriended many and, for the most part, ...

Re: Expat aquiring Thai Passport

Thanks for that. I was just going from memory and haven't looked at the latest amendments. I'm sure you're correct. I do remember that the rules for foreign men and women were made more equal. But are there any pros and cons - for a start does this mean that you have to give up the citicenship of y...

The ultimate series of U- Turns seem to have been made by Trump on abortion over the weekend - still he is a facinating contender for the Presidency.

Re: Dual Citicnship for Thais in Norway

BTW, if your son has a Norwegian education, when he reports in Thailand, he could have difficulties as a foreign education does not count, and they will try to force him back into education. You can PM me, and I will explain fully what happened with my son - not for an open forum. Thank you for hea...

Re: Dual Citicnship for Thais in Norway

However, The Nationality Act of Thailand does not allow dual nationality even though Norway does! Many Thais have two passports (dual nationality) and although not recognised, the trick is not to tell the left hand what the right hand is doing. i.e. Don't tell either country of the other. As Norway...
