      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. Thailand's military government is evicting thousands of much-loved street-food vendors from their usual spots in a bid to clear walkways and bring order to the capital. The move has been criticised for depriving people of affordable meals and pushing Bangkok towards a more sterile future. "The street food of Bangkok is the blood of Bangkok … this is the charm, it is the fame, it is the identity of Bangkok," said Korakot Punlopruksa, a food writer and travel show host. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-04-15/bangkok-street-food-vendors-forced-to-move-by-thai-government/8407610
  2. I stayed in the English Rose last month for 2 weeks. I would not hesitate to recommend it. It is secure (has in room safes) and scrupulously clean. The English owner is on site much of the time and lives there so its a well run ship. I took a large room and the owner provided a desk and chair for me on request as I needed it for work. It can be a touch noisy in the street out front due to all the massage girls calling customers but it's not over the top. Location can't be beat with LK Metro a 3 minute walk away, 3 x 711's and a subway within 150 metres. The restaurant next door Boars Head has first rate food as well. I only moved out because I rented a condo.
  3. Can you pin this or post a link to a website? I looked back through 3 or 4 pages but no can find. It would be good to have a pinned post with current specs. I need Australian content plus US news channels, especially CNN. Must work on wifi.
  4. I've walked past every morning for the past 4 days and no a soul around except at the office.
  5. Try The Pride, about 50 metres off soi 15. You should get a 47 m2 1 bedroom for 20K. Also try The Urban, just down the street a bit, slightly cheaper for the same thing. I inspected a couple last week and found them to be very similar. The Pride has the better location but I liked The Urban slightly more.
  6. I'm thinking of moving there on Saturday. Do you have any issues there?
  7. Walking Street is calling me... gotta go.

  8. Back in 1990 I stayed in the New Star Hotel in soi 11 near the night market. I stayed there 5 months for 100 baht per night. They were building across the street and had pile drivers working all day but I had a room out the back which overlooked a coconut plantation. It had only a fan and no hot water but seemed OK as I was only young. I think it's still pretty cheap and the location is brilliant, just far enough down the soi not to be noisy.
  9. I want to get a one year retirement visa and stay in Bangkok. I'm told that the procedure is to obtain a 90 day non-0 multi entry retirement visa first in Australia and then convert it to a one year retirement visa in Thailand. It's not clear to me exactly what documents I need to submit to get the 90 day visa in the first instance. Reading the Thai embassy website it looks like they want the same documents to get the 90day retirement visa as the one year but a friend told me that I need only pay for the 90 day visa in Australia, no documents other than my passport and then submit all docs in Thailand. I'm confused. Can somebody explain the exact process please?
  10. How about Dresden which was not a military target and full of refugees where an estimated 350,000 civilians died. The rationale? It might help break German morale. The Japanese have much to apologize for but it's not a one way street. Dropping the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had more to do with Russia than Japan. You mention Japanese revisionist history but the idea that America had to drop the bomb to save lives is just the same bullshit propaganda.
  11. “The coral reefs are affected by unaware tourists – when they go diving they may touch or step on the reef. Closing those spots will help the reefs recover naturally,” National Park officer director, Reungsak Theekasuk, told AFP. Coral bleaching, primarily caused by warming waters, has been wreaking havoc on the region for years." Coral recovers very slowly from physical damage. The main cause is warming waters but, according to Australian scientists, the ability of coral to withstand warmer temperatures is adversely affected by pollution. Many of the best diving sites are on the west coast where the water gets deep fairly quickly so runoff pollution should be less of a concern than the Great Barrier Reef which lie directly off hundreds of sugar cane fields pumping nitrates and pesticides directly onto the reef.
