      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is not down - just running very slowly due to the task of reindexing the millions of posts in the database due to an upgrade of the server software. Unfortunately it is difficult to predict how long this will take to complete so all BM's are implored to be patient. You can all help to speed this process by refraining from posting pointless stuff and please avoid uploading photos till it is finished.    Sometimes users are experiencing very slow page reads or error pages and this is caused by server load.    Please note that many of the old features are not available atm but this because they cannot be reinstated until the reindex is complete - so don't be too concerned about missing bits as yet. However .... please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.   Current Progress as of 8pm Bangkok time 20 March 2017     Current Progress as of 2:30pm Bangkok time 21 March 2017     Current Progress as of 1:00pm Bangkok time 22 March 2017     Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. Correct!! and that happens with all booking sites.....So just book your room. No worries at all
  2. My point with the thread Thai driving licence and Thai bank account is to share the new updates with BMs, regardless how it was in the past
  3. I opened my account on January 30th 2017
  4. Thai Bank account: On my 3rd day in LoS, I went to immigration office in Jomtien, I applied for residence certificate. in the application i mentioned that i needed for MC DL and to open a bank account. All I needed was : - a copy of the passport, the stamp from the airport (30 days) and the departure card. - a copy of the receipt that i had already paid the hotel for 30 days - 2 pass photos - 400 Baht After about an hour I got 2 certificates ! I went first to Bangkok bank, I tried but then i changed my mind cause - ATM card i was offered costed 700 Baht.... - That card is free of charge if I use it in ATMs in BKK and Chon buri regions but not free in the rest of LoS. So I went to KrugSri bank. I opened the account and paid 300 Baht and got a debit card, I can use in ATMs in the whole nation free of charge....
  5. Wrong !! here : easy to open bank account on tourist visa. here is my report
  6. Any pics ???
  7. As you are with the wife, it might be ok. But for a single monger, there's a hostel in soi 4, right next to omnit tower hotel. a double room to 1000 baht. I checked in once and stayed few hours as i was leaving at 22.00. I was staying in MG in soi 2 and didn't want to pay 3600 for few hours in the evening. The hostel has single and double rooms. It was clean with lift, shower in the room and a small fridge in the room....
  8. what i use to is that i write an email to the hotel and ask before i book. that's lot better than to ask others. cause hotels might change their policies. in addyion i got a proof once they reply....
  9. i think it's located in jomtien
