Re: Where to get a medical certificate

Well I must be blind, I even asked my wife and she said must go to the hospital, but then again she says that even for a sneeze.

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

Two worst in my opinion, Market Village & Bangkok hospital, very few cars and just about no motorbikes stop at either. Crossing at either is taking your life in your hands

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

So basically they are not going to do anything until at least September 2018 when they will begin talks. By 2018 it will all be in the waste bin and it will be carry on as normal.

Re: Charging for plastic bags in Thailand?

It always amazez me where they dig up statistics.

The research also showed that Thais aged between 15-65 years old who comprise around 47 million people of the total population use approximately three plastic bags a week.

3 bags a week, I guess they only surveyed people living in the bush.
