      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. Jmo, your trip is only for 7 days. As the others have stated. I wouldn't move. Your holiday will over before you'll want it to be.
  2. Book in advance for one place for the week. Since you're arriving at 3am, I would also pre-book a taxi from BKK to Pattaya. Save yourself the hassles. As David mentioned if your arriving at 3am on 2/5 you might want to book for the 2/4. Otherwise you might not be able to get into your room to noon or later.
  3. Areca Lodge has tub/shower combo. I prefer shower only, myself. It's in a great central location. Especially for a 1st timer.
  4. Agoda lets you pay in advance. Booking I've payed upon arrival. Agoda gives you the rates before taxes. Booking gives you the rates with taxes included I normally like to pay in advance. But where I've staying this trip,that's not a option. Up to you what your preferences are. Use a ATM machine, if you don't want to carry that much cash in your pockets for the flight.
  5. I stayed in D-block in February, and don't remember the rooster. I also booked my reservations for this February while I was still there. If there was any noise, I was either passed out or preoccupied. Lol. Meow & team are great.
  6. The girls all know their way around the breakfast buffet line. I've had some girls state they've never been to this hotel, where your staying at. But the next morning they know exactly where the buffet/restaurant is. 555
  7. According to the Agoda website it's 17 sq.m. for the room that appears in the video. Ok for maybe one night, but I wouldn't want stay for an extended time in something that small. https://www.agoda.com/a-one-star-hotel/hotel/pattaya-th.html?checkin=2016-10-19&los=2&adults=2&rooms=1&cid=-1&searchrequestid=d3509923-8d87-4fcd-83a2-8e1471d79155
  8. The room looks like the size of a closet.
  9. Check in on 11-26. Check out 12-8 either Pattaya or Bangkok. If you haven't made the air reservations yet. Check Eva or China Air. Both have better return flight times.
  10. Never had a problem in the past with a 14" laptop fitting in a room safe. however I believe a 15"+ might be to large. Now I only travel with a tablet(Ipad). And fwiw, I also leave mine out(both laptop & ipad) the majority of the time. Depending on where I'm staying. You could also get a laptop cable lock. They cost less than $20 on Amazon.
  11. I was able to exchange emails with them last evening. Nature view has always responded in very timely fashion to my emails. Maybe the site was down for maintenance/upgrade issues.
  12. I've stayed at both LK Ren & Areca and they are good choices. They're about 1/2 a block apart on opposites sides of the soi/street. My preference is Areca because it has 2 swimming pools.
  13. If your staying for a couple of weeks, split it up. That way you'll have a better idea for the future. I've split it up in the past, by staying part of a trip in Jomtien. And on another trip stayed at a Sabai on Soi 1. I also found that I much prefer the Buakhao area. What's the choice for the place that has the sea view & better facilities?
