Re: Welcome to Thailand

They will need help from Mother Nature and all the parties involved. Both Laos and China wish to power the Mekong Bassin.

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

First let me say that I am NOT an electrical engineer. Some people have questioned the safety of using the yellow plugs ( I posted earlier) since they are USA rated for 125 V and 15 A. I am curious to know how they arrived at that conclusion. Everything ELSE being proper.. Use or NOT use the USA rat...

1000 baht for a 1000 calories and 1000 mg of sodium, not a bad deal... What else did you get with the burger ?

Re: Are we into a Recession already here in Udon?

Thanks a lot Mr. Parrot. Indeed very interesting stats of a partial view of the Thai tourism industry. The ATTA ( association of travel agencies of Thailand) faces a shrinking market due to the technological changes, many, if not most young travellers managed their own trip using the different onlin...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

II agree with RLT, many too, many tools , appliances are connected via a 2-prong socket, is it safe ? I dont think so. Many people will tell you that the ground wire is not needed because ( 1) most appliances-tools are made of plastic and ( 2) major appliances ( water heaters, ac unit) are RCD break...

Re: Are we into a Recession already here in Udon?

For the last 50 years or so Thailand has enjoyed a streak of good luck, from the Vietnam War that brought in money, people and business, to the Communist Scare, which was used to channel a lot of industries here in order to prevent Thailand from falling in the Communist world. The USA via Japan pour...
