    Reliable Decent Electrician ?

    Can anyone recommend a reliable decent electrician for Just outside Pattaya (Near Phoenix Golf) Having real trouble finding one for the House i am doing. The house is around 300M2 and maybe 70% of the groundfloor wiring (cable only) is in place, but there are a few alterations and quite a few more sockets to add, plus all the first floor, and its becoming a nightmare trying to find an electrician, any help would be greatly appreciated
    cheers

    It may be time to "bite the bullet" & either realise that;
    a] you will not easily find a competent Thai electrician or
    b] "enlist" the services of a qualified farang.

    Good luck if you don't choose b].

    I would hire the Kraut if I were not capable of doing it myself, you will never find a Thai that is qualified.

    I know of two Thais in Chiang Mai, I wonder why Pattaya is different BG

    Incidentally, electrcians normally charge by the work they do, in terms of the number of lights, power points etc, not by the hour
    I have reported your post
