      Server Upgrade   22/07/17

      On Tuesday 25th July the forum will be carrying out a server upgrade, this will necessitate an approximate two hour down time that the forum will not be able to be accessed. This will occur around 2pm (14:00) ET. Hopefully this will resolve the speed and loading issues.

  1. As JH says on the baht bus route is key, if you are out in Central / WS etc and can't ride a bike then you'll want a baht bus back. You won't want a taxi bike back all the time
  2. Here's an alternative. Live in Pattaya for a few months over the winter only (4 months+), i know many retired guys who do that + move in with your mum for the rest of the time in the UK + Sell your house if you own it. If you can't do the last two just go for a few months a year. Big advantage is you have the NHS, medical bills in Thailand will get very high if you become seriously ill. I've read threads of older guys getting wiped out by the hospital bills. Live a frugal life in the UK save up, look forward to Pattaya and enjoy spending it whilst there
  3. Did you put in a review like tripadvisor? Hope so
  4. Kev seems to have put someone elses teeth in
  5. Why what's caused that at Triangle?
  6. Have you tried using google or do you expect people to do it for you? Westies advice is sound. Also check
  7. Yes i look online a lot and i don't see much new on the market for the areas I'm interested in. I see the same old condos everytime i check
  8. Baraquda is a good location and on baht bus route, give that a shot, easy to get around or go shopping a Central
  9. It stops once. A mate said his daughter pissed herself because the driver wouldn't stop more often, so plan ahead.
  10. Everyone knows cash is rubbish unless the market is about to crash. What good ideas do you have about investing?
  11. Often the default advice is buy property but that's fraught with danger, depends where, how much and where in the cycle the property values are. People are talking about a crash in housing market in England / London now. There are more specialised forums if someone wants to get input from DIY investors. Citywire forum is pretty good. I use Citywire to look at Fund performance in helping me choose Funds. Here's some things i wouldn't invest in: 1) A bar 2) A gogo 3) a condo in Pattaya in the hope of getting a regular consistent yield + capital growth. 4) Gold - depends where in the cycle it is 5) a business/shop as a play thing for a thai bird 6) I'm avoiding UK funds invested in foreign securities that aren't hedged
  12. For a short holiday of 18 days I'd stay central in a hotel, not Naklua or Jomtien. Somewhere between Soi Buakhao and beach road. Even for my last 6 month stay i was very central near beach road.
  13. Sell it and enjoy your 10 years travelling
  14. Yeah if you look back at the posts from the start of the warnings about buying off plan. Usual story, people are wiser in hindsight
  15. I stayed in intown holiday hotel once and the difference between a standard room and delux room was carpet, made me laugh.
