Re: Pick-up sitting ban resurrected for New Year travel

I asked a relative about that law, they said its ok if 'no have seatbelt'. I wasn't convinced either! I know it's wrong and highly dangerous to do so, more so on the roads of Thailand, but after a long tiring day out somewhere I like to lie down in the back of a pickup on the way home. It's generall...

Re: 19:15 - 20:20 Flight WE010 travelling between 02DECT17 to 24MAR18 has been cancelled.

My wife and son are due to fly on the 8th, I'd be pissed off to the extent none of my family would fly Thaismile again if their flights were changed so late they were unable to make their connecting flights. Thankfully there are several flights with the budget airlines flying into Don Muang slightly...

Re: Prawn (Gung) Farm

On a slightly related note, I once visited a restaurant in Bangkok set around a little pond where you had to fish your own prawns out with fishing rods.

Wasn't exactly hard to get a bite as you ate and paid for what you caught by weight. I'm convinced such a novelty would be popular in Udon.

Re: Pixel or Pixel 2 & Pixel Buds

Google translate is good for short sentences but often translates things work for word resulting in gobbledegook. It's still a fantastic free service however I wouldn't ever rely on it for anything important.

Is it my eyesight or are people photoshopping themselves into pictures on that Facebook page? The image quality of the people at the front is higher than the people at the rear.

Re: Why does Udon Map print “never drink tap water”?

I've always had the squits after drinking tap water in the village. It's rain water from a big butt in the local school and god knows what the pipes through the village are like. I've only ever drank it when others in the house refill the water bottles using the tap and replace them in the fridge. T...

That was 100% better than Heathrow, where Immigration took the swipe of my passport but baggage handling took an hour to even start up the belts.. :boogle:

UK banks will still take them, just can't use them in shops. Not sure illegal is the right word!

Well done jimjay, well worth going up against a van while riding a motorbike just to show you have the bigger bollocks. I get the sarcasm. To each their own.

Re: Serious Traffic Hazard

They never learn. Even for regular grass or hedge cutting the workmen put out 1 or 2 cones. In the UK they do sometimes go overboard by closing entire lanes for the same work but if it saves lives, is it overboard?
Thailand has a lot to learn about road safety from top to bottom.

Re: What are your 5 favourite Thai dishes

In my early days visiting Thailand I once went on a mission to order krapow moo(pork) but by the time I reached the favourite little family restaurant moo had became maa. Needless to say I never got what I asked for and I never asked for it again once I returned with the krapow moo and the Mrs had e...

Re: What are your 5 favourite Thai dishes

1. I'd agree with the Pad Krapow but I generally have it with pork, while more fatty it has more flavour. 2. I'm a man of simple taste and my local noodle shop is hard to beat for simplicity. The fact it's remained open for years and outlived other attempts in the village says a lot. 3. I like BBQ'd...

Re: Bread and croissants

I've sampled some in Laos, probably the best I've had out of France. They even speak French to add to the feel.
