Sep 02, 2014 - 2:13 PM - by Moolek |
After looking at the post by Rayong vs Samed thread I thought there might be some value to others in doing a thread about Rayong. Mainland Rayong beaches are a great option if you are in Bangkok and are on a limited time and/or budget. The following info is just my impressions so take it for what its worth. |
I don't claim to be an expert on the area and am only familiar with the area from Rayong city to Laem Mae Pim. I am not involved in the tourist industry or any of the businesses... [Read More]

Sep 02, 2014 - 1:42 PM - by somtamslap |
Day 1: Exeter - Weymouth (64.5 miles) |
Devon. It's just one big bastard hill. But then you always pay the cost for proximity to coastline and its incorrigible undulations - you are made to work so hard for the view that upon eventually cresting the ascent your vision is blurred and you've pissed your pants and the tremendous vista before you may as well be a public toilet in Sakhon Nakhon. This is why cameras are a good invention.

| » Rayong or Samet? |
Sep 01, 2014 - 2:00 PM - by Baas Babelaas |
Me and my lady friend want to get away this weekend to either Rayong or Samet (Fri-Mon). |
I'm not too bothered - she's driving us.
I've been to Samet two or three times. But never been to Rayong.
She recommends a place on Samet called Vong Duern Villa.
What's your take?

Aug 31, 2014 - 12:38 PM - by LEGENDARY |
Anyone know of outdoor beer bars where freelancers hang out in Vientiane? I'm not a night person when it comes to hustling or being hustled, so I'm particularly interested in locations that are workable in the daytime. Thanks in advance for all replies.

| » Maid Employment - No Cellphone |
Aug 21, 2014 - 12:29 AM - by Looper |
Very strange. My erstwhile flipper GF from Phuket, back in Phils for a while now, has been recruited by a maid service and has a placement in Penang with an Indian couple. One of the conditions of her employment is that she may not possess a mobile phone? |
Sounds a bit dodgy to me.
Has anybody heard of this restriction before for maid employment?

Aug 20, 2014 - 11:45 AM - by pseudolus |
I was in PP at the same time as the bored bloke. How can you be bored? Weird. |
Anyway, the reason for the trip was a change in Visa rules effective 1st August which meant I had to leave the country for my non imm b regardless of having 11 month of work permit and not had to do this before. Maybe I left it too late? Who cares.
So I flew out on Saturday. Business class on TG was 17,100 baht, but when I got to Swampy I realised I had been chucked onto Thai Smile! And... [Read More]

Aug 16, 2014 - 4:33 AM - by Baas Babelaas |
Got to PP last night and visited S21 and the Killing Fields - for all of an hour. Was bored stiff (excuse the pun, no disrespect intended) |
The road to the KFs are rotten, and I actually got tuk tuk-sick.
Is there anything to do in this godforsaken city.
Was thinking about a gander by the river and visiting the Foreign Correspondents Club (correct name?)
Not a fuck interested in Wats, palaces, etc.
This city sucks balls... [Read More]

hello all. |
A brief background I am in my mid 20s and have been living in Thailand and a little in Malaysia for the past 5 years. I am in between fluent and 'getting by' with the Thai language, so I can hold a conversation pretty easily.
However things have changed rapidly here and I wish to relocate to Laos. Some would suggest a trip first, but that would or should have been the case when I first came here 5 years ago but that turned out fine, I haven't left Asia... [Read More]

Aug 14, 2014 - 10:43 AM - by Nabeel |
Despite what we read in the news today, the Taxi's at Swampy are still trying the old meter scam. |
Arrived at 6pm yesterday, with 2 Thai friends and acquired a taxi from the rank on the ground level. Hidden by a cloth was the meter reading 127 baht as we pulled away!!!!
Couple of quick words from my friends....lots of apologises and it was reset to the standard start of 37. Then he wondered and asked for a tip....is the guy real.
We posted the taxi... [Read More]

Aug 12, 2014 - 10:50 PM - by Baas Babelaas |
So, I have a renewable 'business' visa for Cambo, which if not extended will expire 31st August. |
If I were to extend it, for say 3/6/12 months before I left Cambo to go to HK, could I come back into Cambodia on the extended visa?

Aug 12, 2014 - 5:42 AM - by Baas Babelaas |
I'll be in PP in a couple days for a few days. |
Nothing special planned - might try to get my China visa there, see the S21 and the fields.
Any reccos on hotels and things to do/see?
Saw a decent hotel called Silver River Hotel for about $25/night.
Wouldn't mind doing some urban exploring too.
Ideas esteemed forum-people?
