      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. When I booked my flight I debated with myself the merits of a hotel,condo,guesthouse,as it's a seven week trip came down on the side of a Guesthouse mainly for the social contact and budget constraints,condos were ditched as I imagined myself shopping for food and cooking just for myself like home really,hotels because they can be impersonal and people think you are weird if you try to talk to them. guesthouses tend to be a bit rundown and basic to say the least but at least the ones that have a few tables and chairs outside will have people there to chat with and hang out there. I have booked one on soi2 Jomtien for a month 15000 all in with breakfast seems to have good Wi-Fi run by a Norwegian and his Thai wife,small clean fridge and flatscreen TV,balcony(a must),basic but with a few scented candles and joss sticks and some of them lovely cashmere and silk shawl I saw on the night market at 100baht( Trotter tradings)finest I shall soon have it smelling like a LBs boudoir.
  2. Arrived in Jomtien yesterday staying in Z by Zing down in soi 12.Its 540baht a night it's a bit far out so had a wander around the 2-7 soi's looking for a place for a month the 20-30k places seem booked out a couple in the 10-15k wanted 10 baht a unit electric uh uh.saw one room 8000 all in but it was dire only one small window dark and dingy,a lick of a light paint etc some decent led lighting dump my granny's bedspread it might just work,but then the useless owners would have to put down the beer and get off there arse. Gonna look at a place tomorrow 15000 month all in plus breakfast,not optimistic.will wander about tonight up near domtang.
  3. I stayed a couple of times when it first opened already after 2 years you could see it was done on the cheap,lots of chipboard getting chipped and just poor quality fixtures and fittings,surprised to see its still not had to close for a complete refurbishment.
  4. It's value for money,that would be a fast walk to get from soi2 to WS in 20mins.
  5. was 30 euro about 1100baht.
  6. going to the Amsterdam consulate to get a 60day single entry visa tomorrow and according to the web site its free from dec 1,thats only for single entry visas,it also said that they do not do multiple entry visas anymore but thats not there today.you may have to visit the embassies for them.
  7. Just seen on the Amsterdam Thai consulate Web site that from Dec 1 no fees on single entry tourist visas.
  8. When you leave Thailand your passport is stamped and that's the 30 day visa/permission to stay done,unless you get a multiple entry visa before you leave home you will get a 30 day stamp each time you enter Thailand in theory, You will have no problem re-entering Thailand at least once and as long as you can show airtickets probably a few times,land border problems may differ.i have seen on the Amsterdam consulate Web site that the multiple entry visas are not allowed at this time,the Cambodian tourist visa is also stamped "used" it's a single entry one.
  9. thanx for the link just what i am looking for,tried to book "agoda can not process my credit card at this time" will try tomorrow.
  10. Get an E-visa for Cambodia,airasia are cheap but I think they fly out from DM,check out the bangkokair timetable they fly out from suvharnubam and you can easily get the bus from pattaya to Swampy.enjoy PP.
  11. I've seen and used some tatty old one dollar bills in Cambodia you get the problems with the higher denominations,your $100s need to be in good nick.
  12. No it's OK not gonna be a keyboard warrior about it,peace and love.
  13. That's scary less than 5 baht between the pound and the Euro.
  14. Where you been living? Southern Ireland indeed.
