  1. The Base Rentals
  2. Diamond Tower condo

    I rented 1 month direct from City Garden in 2015. The City Garden manager said they tried renting <30 days, but had noise and damage issues with ST renters, so they stopped renting ST.

    Beach Rd might be closer, but crossing 2nd Rd is always challenging with the traffic. When you think its safe to cross 2nd Rd, check the other direction for the motobike going against the traffic. I almost got hit by such motobikes. The lack of a back entrance might be a safety issue. Everyone gets screened by the security at the front 2nd Rd entrance.
  4. Another option as I mentioned is waiting +2.5 hrs after landing on day1 (20Oct) at 9:35pm, then passing thru immigrations on day2 (21Oct) at 12:15am. It’s a chance but if they do not check your flight arrival time, you will solve your problem because they will stamp your passport entered Thailand on day2, admit until day31. If you decide to try this option, bring something to do to pass 2.5 hrs because there is nothing (bars, restaurants) on the arrivals side of BKK before immigrations. I have delayed my arrival by +1 hr on 2 trips when arriving at 11:00pm and gotten my passport stamped arrived on day2, but you will be delaying by +2.5hrs. If this option fails, then you can still can pay the 500 baht overstay fee (if not waived) or go to Jomtien and pay for an extension. But as George810 said, he took his chances and exited Thailand on day31 and “it was not called to attention and I went on my way as normal.”
  5. VT6 vs The Base

    The Base gym is pretty small with all new Matrix equipment but it will go downhill quickly if not maintained. · 3 treadmills · 1 recumbent bike · 2 upright bikes · 2 orbital trainers · 2 machines · 1 Slant board for situps · 1 Bench · Dumbbells I stayed at The Base (Nov 2016) and City Garden (Nov 2015) for 1 month and I think City Garden’s gym might be a little larger. Both City Garden and The Base gyms had 2 AC units in the gym, but The Base juristic office turned off one AC unit to save energy and it got a little warm. The Base gym is rather small considering there are +1100 units when crowded. Hardly anyone brought a towel to The Base gym to wipe down the equipment and the cleaning lady only to wipes the glass and mirrors and sweeps the floor. The Base gym can get crowded with mothers who bring her 2 yr old, personal trainer with their student, and people leaving their cellphone on the gym equipment.
  6. I did this in 2015 and 2016 with my flights landing at 11:00PM at BKK on day1, then I waited +1hr and passed thru immigrations at 0:15AM on day2. Both times, my passport was stamped admitted to Thailand on day2, and admit until day61. I also did this when I exited in 2015 with my flight departing at 01:35AM on day62, but I passed thru immigrations on day61 at 10:30PM. My passport was stamped departed on day61. I had no problems or questions with my 60-day VISA. This year I found a flight arriving at BKK at 0:15AM, so I don’t have to do this. Upon arrival, immigrations never looked or questioned me on when my flight departed. When I departed in 2015, immigrations did not check whether my flight left on day61 or day62 and they just stamped my passport departed day61.
  7. I have been getting a 60-day single entry VISA for the past 4 years. Below is the cost and other requirements for a Tourist Visa Category “TR” Single Entry VISA from the Royal Thai Embassy in Washington DC. Also, depending on your flight arrival time or departure time, I have exceeded the 30 or 60 day stay based on when I pass thru Thai immigrations without problems. $40 US Visa Processing Fee: Payable in money order (only) made payable to “Royal Thai Embassy”. NO CASH, NO PERSONAL and BUSINESS CHECKS ACCEPTED $23.75 US Return USPS Express Mail Postage by mail Application must include self-addressed return envelope only by these following mail service USPS (US Postal Service) Express Mail ‘ use only flat rate mailing envelope with $23.75 postage stamp (Metered stamps will not be accepted) Documents Required: 1.

  8. Counting the days ?

    You and others have posted that you must count arrival date as day1 and departure date as day61. I have used time/date I pass thru Thai immigrations and I have stayed 62 days w/o problem, but my approach depends on when you you pass thru Thai immigrations. In 2015 and 2016, my flight arrived at 23:00 on day1, but I waited 1 hr and passed thru Thai immigrations on day2 at 0:15 and my passport was stamped entered Thailand on day2, admit until day61. My 2015 flight departed Thailand at 01:35 on day 62, but I passed thru Thai immigrations at 23:00 on day 61 and my passport was stamped exited Thailand on day61. I had no problems or questions at Thai immigrations upon arrival or departure. This may be technically incorrect, but it solved my problem.

    For LT Airbnb rentals, i.e 28 nights or more, the Airbnb LT cancellation policy which differs from ST reservations <28 nights. The Airbnb LT cancellation policy favors the host over the renter. On an Airbnb LT rental, the renter is charged a first month down payment and the rest will be collected in monthly installments. If a guest cancels before the check-in date, the first scheduled payment is paid to the host in full, and the guest is refunded the remaining amount, i.e. cleaning fee. But if the host cancels, the cancellation fee will be waived for the first cancellation within a 6-month period. After that, Airbnb deducts $100 from the next payout for cancellations < 7 days before check-in and $50 from the next payout for cancellations > 7 days before check-in. The guest will usually get their money back from Airbnb, but it is very difficult to find similarly priced accommodations within 7 days. Plus, when the host cancels, Airbnb leaves an automated review comment, and the host can write a public response to clarify why the host needed to cancel. The renter has no opportunity to any public comment on Airbnb.
