Re: 10 year visas now available, can somebody tell immigration

After what happened to the "to big to fail" globan US banking player, I humbly consider that in banking, anything can happen to any bank, anywhere. The only security a consumer would have is to have it in a country (like Switzerland) where the government gives a guarantee of around €100'000,-- /per...

Re: Thailand has become new 'e-waste' and plastic dumping ground

Not only plastic bags, but the pet bottles and so much more. For the PET bottles perhaps a 50 THB depot money would encourage consumers to return the empty bottle to get their money back to the 7/11 collecting point ? As for the plastic bags, why not start to manufacture them with bio degradable com...

Re: Australian man 'stabbed in chest' in Thailand club

The Australian man was clearly misbehaving, the Israeli guy had some serious ego issues and did not appreciate the drunk Aussie fondling his girlie's buttocks...all the ingredients were mixed in Pattaya, in a hooker bar at 4am so what social etiquette or decency was left ? The Israeli definately com...

Re: International Driving License

Just be aware if you come from the EU, your IDP is not recognized in Thailand. The EU hands out IDP (that has to be presented with the national driving licence), that refers to the 1968 convention. This convention has not been ratified by Thailand, Japan and perhaps some other nations. Of course, it...

In Europe, when you rent and provided it is clearly mentioned in the rental contrat , it is quite common for the tenant to pay maintenance for any included appliances...unfortunately !..If the appliance is not mentioned in the inventory that is made before signing the rental contract, it legally doe...

Re: 10 year visas now available, can somebody tell immigration

I would not trust a Thai bank with 3 million left in an account...if the amount was 1 million perhaps.... And what about people who lost their savings with US and Iceland banks ???? Very true. All the more reason if you can do so in your country, to put savings in banks within countries that guaran...

Re: Farang buying a house with a Thai lady

The best thing if you plan to get married, is to put the house in the name of a family member before marriage. Thus you live as a guest and in case of a split up, you don't get ripped off. I don't understand that at all. Are you saying instead of putting it in your future wife's name you put it in ...
