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

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    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.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. OK, I realize that now, 1 month isn't all that long compared to how long some stay here. H Boutique is perfectly located, but Agoda says it's 1271 B + 17% = 1487 B. That's 44k per month. I doubt they will give me a 60% discount to get close to my budget.
  2. Canterbury, English Rose China Garden are all on the other side (East side) of Soi Buakhao. Problem with that is, that makes it fair bit of a walk to Beach road 2. Yeah, that's what I have been doing so far, baht bus to beach road 2 and then walk. Somewhat odd that the baht bus from Soi Buakhao to WS doesn't run in the reverse direction.
  3. I really like this area: on Soi Honey, about halfway between Beach road 2 and Soi Buakhao. With that in mind, does anyone have a suggestion for a long term (1 month, possibly extended to 2 months) in that area? Requirements are: - around Soi honey, halfway between beach road 2 and Soi Buakhao (or close to it) - NOT in the LK Metro area!!! It's LOUUUUUUD in there. Not even very close to LK Metro (like Katesiree) - quiet (as quiet as possible for the area) - budget is around 15k + electricity or 17k all-in - girlfriendly of course - guesthouses are ok - decent-good wifi - prefer 2nd or 3rd floor (anything above that is pain to climb on stairs) - microwave is a plus (for those impromptu microwavable meals from 7-11) - don't care about balcony, it's too hot to sit outside - don't care about TV, I watch TV about 1-2 times a month I know I can catch a baht bus from Soi Buakhao to Walking Street (to the corner of beach road 2 and South Pattaya road, anyway). Is there a baht bus that will bring me back to Soi Buakhao? If so, where does one board this baht bus?
  4. It all depends on what you value in a hotel: location, quality of rooms, safety, facilities, etc. You have only mentioned that you like the location. I am staying in a guesthouse on Soi honey, halfway between beach road 2 and soi buakhao. Decent room for 800 baht. Location IMO is awesome. If I walk to beach road 2, I can catch a baht bus to soi 6. Central Festival is a short walk away. Soi buakhao, Soi Lengkee, Soi Chayapoon, LK Metro are all a short walk away. I can walk to soi buakhao and catch a baht bus to walking street. Of the hotels you listed, Areca and Bay Breeze are similarly located.
  5. Guesthouses are usually rooms above a business. So the main floor is a restaurant, or bar, or whatever business. The owners/operators generate extra income by renting out rooms on the other floors. Each guesthouse doesn't have that many rooms, around 4-8 per guesthouse. Housekeeping may only be available up to 2 pm, say. There is often no formal reception (the bar manager handles those duties). Overall, I would say, guesthouses can be great value for the money. Just be careful about the location of them. The LK metro area, for example, is full of guesthouses. It's also full of bars, which makes the area very loud until the wee hours of the morning.
  6. June is low season. Hotels are a bit cheaper then (girls are not). Dunno how much money you have to spend overall, but if you need to budget, keep in mind that around 1500 B gets you a pretty decent hotel. You can spend more money on the girls then.
  7. I just got my 30 day extension in Bangkok. Filled out 1 form (TM7 form). I imagine it's the same in Jomtien. The form is easy to fill out, takes about 5 minutes. Why bother picking up one, or printing out one before? Just fill it out when you do the extension. What you will need: Photocopy of passport (photo page, page with entry stamp, that exit form/stub you got when you arrived) Local Phone number (the form itself doesn't require a phone number, but the immigration officer will ask you to write it down) A photo of yourself (4x6 cm)
  8. 650 baht is way too much for that teeny tiny space. As pointed out, you can get a room in a guesthouse for that. For those capsules to be viable, it needs to be around 300 baht.
  9. According to reports, H Boutique, Honey Inn, 247 Boutique charge extra for a second girl. WTF. Don't they know this is Pattaya.
  10. Unlikely. It's the ones with money that take foreign holidays, and those don't whore themselves out. China's p4p places are having trouble stocking with girls. Prices have gone up a lot too in the last few years. So unless the Thai market will bear prices higher than local China market, there is no point in the China WG's going to work in Thailand.
  11. I just finished staying for 4 days at kilkenny's. This was my second time staying with them. 1. Of course there are little things that are wrong with the room, things that are less than perfect. I have a whole list of them but won't go into them. Most of them are minor inconveniences. The thing you gotta remember is, you are getting a pretty good room at a great rates. Overall, it's great value. 2. Standard rooms are decent size. Deluxe rooms are BIG, these would easily be a suite in a normal hotel. Superior rooms are too big really (takes ac forever to cool down the room). Bathrooms are rather small though. 3. My first night, my booking was for 3 am in the morning. Didn't arrive until 4 am due to flight delay. I was not charged for that night! Because technically it was past 12 midnight, I guess. I never asked for it either, the manageresse on duty just did the calculations that way. Big thumbs up for kilkenny's and yes I did leave a tip for that. As a comparison, I am staying at Innhouse hotel now. My buddy is arriving late tonight 3-4 am. I tried to negotiate some sort of discount with the hotel, they wouldn't have none of it. 4. The bedding and towels are kilkenny's are quite new. Furniture and fixings are in reasonable shape too. Not always the case in a budget guesthouse.
  12. The builders next doors of the billabong are completely ripping out the guts of the first and second floor of it. My guess is that it will be a gogo bar. Anyone knows what it will be?
  13. I just stayed in Billabong, about a week ago. Billabong requires you to pay a 20% deposit of your total cost. Via credit card. Non-refundable. Fair enough, I say. Upon my arrival at Billabong, one of their employees tried to get me and my friend to pay the entire stay there and then. We said no. We paid them the balance of the first day (minus the deposit), and paid daily thereafter. It's a case of them getting you to pay as much up front as they can talk you into, I guess. I also stayed at Kilkenny's guesthouse. They required a 1000 baht deposit (paid in person). Thereafter, they gently hinted that we should pay every once in a while (by including the room bill with the breakfast bill, say) but never insisted on it. For the most part, we paid when we checked out. I would imagine that if you were to stay a long time, it is fair and reasonable that you pay once every few days. There was one incident at Kilkenny's. They showed us their available rooms, and I wanted the superior room. This was clearly communicated to the Thai manageresse. I was asked to put down a 1000 b deposit towards the room, which I did. The room booking started the day after that. When I came back a day later, I was told that they had made a mistake. My superior room was no longer available! The had made a booking mistake, they claim. The room has already been booked by a regular who was going to stay there for a month. So there you have it, putting down a deposit towards a room doesn't mean that you will really get that room. I don't believe for 1 minute that there really was an honest mistake. Their regular, long-time customer showed up and I got bumped. The manageresse did offer me a 100 b discount on different room. All in all that incident did leave a sour taste in my mouth.
  14. It seems the price has gone up. It says 600 b per day on their website now.
