Well there are Quick Drs and Quack Drs--sometimes difficult to know which you are getting.

Re: Quick docter to treat a soa arround 94/102 area

I looked it up in dictionary of medical abbreviations, it says SOA = Swelling of Ankles--that doesn't sound like an emergency.

Well I'm always ready to go home by 12.01 as are many others but I know others are not. Keeping the Thai drug fueled youth thugs out makes good sense.

Re: Travel insurance - check the small print..

One of the most important coverages you get with any good travel insurance is REPATRIATION Insurance. To cover the huge expense if you have to be flown home--perhaps on a stretcher with a Dr accompanying you. If you buy coverage in Thailand it may be to fly you back to Thai not to your home country-...

Re: Bintabaat shut down at 12.15 by masked police!

I recently lived and worked in Cambodia for 6 months. I was surprised at the number of Thai ex-pats taking a holiday there. When talking to them they were often also there to consider Cam as an alternative retirement home. I didn't see many couples doing this, mostly single men.

Farang are very ingenious. Isn't there some way that they could send money to Thailand but not visit the country.

Re: Thai Food Around the World

I know a Thai lady in Toronto, she has lived there for many years. She tells me that now, in the Asian Supermarkets in Chinatown she can buy every ingredient that she needs to cook Thai food and that was not true when she first came to Canada.

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

A friend tells me that he saw a HUGE crowd of Chinese in Vancouver airport sitting in a circle on the floor eating and spilling food in a carpeted area. When they left a crew from airport house-keeping came, picked up all the trash then roped off the area and steam shampooed the carpet.
