      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. The hotel I stay a does it all the time (is fully booked on their website but has rooms on agoda). Once you book with agoda you will be guaranteed the room. I have even been at the hotel and wanted to extend my stay and they told me to go onto agoda and do it.
  2. You haven't turned chinese have you. That's pretty much what the chinese business people do in Australia. Work there asses off and live like paupers until they have made it. Not my philosphy though. I reckon if you've got it spend it. You could get hit by a bus tomorrow.
  3. I rang up Brisbane consulate last week to inquire about a multi entry visa. I told them I am self employed and regularly visit my girlfriend in thailand. They said just bring in proof of money in the bank and cash of $225 for visa (they dont have eftpos).Typical thai, I bet that money goes straight into their pocket. BTW I got pulled up at immigration at swampy last time using the visa exempt (visa on arrival?) thingy. They told me because I went to thailand 6 times last year I had been "flagged" and should get the Multi entry visa next time
  4. I am currently in pattaya and want to send money from my australian bank account (CBA) to my kasikorn bank account. Never done this before I have heard you get the best rate if you send in aussie dollars (which CBA has the option with internet banking to do, but has a note saying make sure if sending in AUD the receiving bank will accept the AUD) but I only have a thai baht savings account with Kasikorn - not a AUD account. So my question is.... will Kasikorn accept the AUD and convert it into thai baht here at the going rate (today 26.39) and deposit it into my thai currency account. Amount $5000. Also how long does this normally take I have been to the Kasikorn bank in Pattaya Klang today who palmed me off to the international transfer hotline who confused me more. Hopefully someone on PA who has done this before can enlighten me. Cheers
  5. I have rented off roger many times (always a honda click). Not sure of the age but the clicks always look near new and always in perfect condition. Whats so special about a 2016 one may i ask?
  6. Basically the FTSE shares are now cheaper for foreign companies to invest in. So there will be a net flow into the FTSE from external sources, and therefore it goes up
  7. Sutus 1 rooms are newly renovated and bigger, and more expensive. Work your way back from there to sutus 5 on quality and price. All rooms have access to the pools
  8. I have stayed at this hotel many times and never been charged a joiner fee. In fact taken 2 girls back to the room on a few occasions. The suites are perfect for parties. Must only be a recent policy change. I was there about 4 months ago from memory.
  9. If you are genuine I think Jason at Lalaland bar in soi 6 is looking for a manager.
  10. Hey Blue Dragon. Are you still renting bikes out. I will be in pattaya in May and would like to rent a bike for a few weeks
  11. Give the guy a break. I am pretty sure all the bike rental companies have the same deal - minimal insurance. He is renting the bikes out for 85 baht per day and you want full comprehensive insurance. What a joke What are you going to do if you slip over in a bar during songkran - sue the bar owner. Good luck with that
  12. Hakuna - you are getting your pattayas and patongs mixed up. It has a good view of patong beach Looks awesome. How much did you pay per night? I stayed in patong in January and couldn't get a tuk tuk for under 300 baht. Does the hotel have a deal with the local taxis/tuk tuks
  13. They do that so the asians can swim and not be in the sun. I have stayed in a few hotels like that. Never understood why the pool was always in the shade until someone explained it to me. Not that many asians swim anyway - but their kids do
