Re: Travel Insurance- Single trip-Long stay

I am looking to buy Travel Insurance from the UK, but Columbus Direct worked out too much in my case.
Justtravel.com and OKtotravel are looking best for my needs.

Re: Jimmy White Exhibition

I don't know if you are aware but there is a Full size snooker table about 30 metres from El Murphs.
There is a passageway by the side of Papayita Bar which leads to Fenny Foo, at the top on the left is the snooker table.

Re: Thailand Floods of 2018

My main thoughts are with the homeowners and businesses in Petchaburi which seem to get flooded quite often, I assume the main road between the South and Bangkok is flooded again, are the authorities making a concerted effort to overcome long term flooding in the town?

Re: What's Up With The London bar?

The London bar always seemed to have ladies there, do they have some salaried staff and some freelancers?

Re: What's Up With The London bar?

It was busy enough in February, I did go in early doors several years ago and a Thai lady took advantage of my good nature, I bought her a couple of Vodka and oranges only she forgot to put any Vodka in the glass, Mai pen rai, lesson learnt.:)

Re: What's Up With The London bar?

In February when I was in town for the month London Bar was very busy most nights. I do not use the bar because it is very noisy and also very crowded. In February it was probably the most consistent bar in the number of customers it attracted. If the music has now changed then maybe customers are n...

Songkran

I have just watched some footage of Songkran celebrations on Soi Selakem and it looked very very very busy, far more busier than I have ever seen it in high season. Is this because it is mainly Thai people and they come into the Bintabaht block just once a year to celebrate Songkran? Also, I thought...

Re: Smartphone screen replacement

Thanks a lot guys, the screen is not too badly cracked so I assume it is just the glass screen, so decisions decisions, lady or new screen :)

Smartphone screen replacement

I arrive in town next week and I was looking at getting a cracked screen replaced on my number 2 Smartphone. In the past I have noticed a lot of mobile phone outlets near to the railway, just down from the Night Market. Any rough idea of the cost in HH? if it is not cheaper than the UK, then I won't...

Re: Airbus A380 superjumbo saved from extinction by Emirates

In November I flew Thai Airways LHR-BKK and return, out with the A350 and back with the A380, as a passenger I preferred the A350, but I was in the zoo. :)

Re: Thailand floods of 2017

I think that I was rather fortunate, my Taxi passed through Phetchaburi about 6pm on Wednesday on my way to the airport. No water about at all at that time.

Re: El Toro Loco bar closed?

Just my 10p's worth. I think Toro bar was probably the best bar in the area up to around 2010. There was usually plenty of decent eye candy sat out front and the music was very pleasant to listen to, Eagles etc.
I guess it just lost its way, mai pen rai.
