Re: New Traffic Laws & Penalties

Good with the intent of making the roads safer for pedestrians, but there so many other factors in the thai driving that also needs adressing...I am sure alot of the drivers dont even have a genuine driving license to start with. 😳

Re: The Baht

Will be interesting to monitor the tourist situation because the tourist sectors will not be able to survive with the lack of tourists... I was in Pattaya and Samui last year this time of year which is suppose to be peak season, and it was a very far cry from 10 years ago where the streets were pack...

Re: Thais NOT spending

Thai people love their sayings and a good saying is that: you reap what you sow .. and that is ever so much true.. I have seen a huge stagnation in many sectors in tourist areas over the last 6 years I have visited Thailand, and one cannot not notice the change of tourists that have been around in t...

Re: Looking for potential rent

That's a short rental Johan. What's your budget? I am not really having a set limit on budget Tamada, but I am not going to rent something completely crazy though... But if I cant find what I am looking for, then I dont mind living those 1-2 months at Centara hotel or DE Princess hotel... I was jus...

Re: ANYONE USED SUPERRICH TO EXCHANGE £ NOTES TO BAHT

I am just asking, because I read some post about the rates many banks take to exchange the local currency to Baht before heading over to Thailand, and on there it was suggested that it was just as good to just use an atm instead, and I just found that strange... I dont know if Danish cards have some...

Re: schools obsessed with uniforms

[quote Teach them early that appearance is much more important than intellectual development. Evidently the appearance thing doesn't register with Thais.

Re: Currency Crisis Happening Now

It might be that the Thai economy is on an upward spiral, but it looks like they are set to loose against their neighbour countries as they seem to have much more flexibility in many affairs that are locked in tons of paperwork and corruption inside the Thai government system... Also the fact that t...

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

Is it inevitable that many places in Thailand will run into recession... Prices on many goods have gone up aswell as other services, but the average Thai person does not earn the deficit in prices.. I have heard from many people in the village I live in, that things are getting very hard economicall...

Re: Blacksmith who can make Daab sword

Here are a few suggestions: There's an outdoor market about 10km past Nongwahsaw, on the way to Nongbualamphu. In Thai it's called ตลาดห้วยเดื่อ . It's about 200m past the dinosaur museum as you're going toward Nongbualamphu, on the same side as the museum. There's a vendor there who sells a wide v...
