    Some can't even pay attention for long enough to type a complete sentence.

    I’d much rather be at the house and taking my daughter to the beach, Jeff, but that’s not on the table yet, so, artificial stimulation it is.

    Two books would last you two weeks?

    Are they colouring or pop-up?

    Received my 1 year Covid insurance policy and sent in the request to the Thai Consulate and was approved. Not flying for a bit yet but wanted to check to see if the docs were Ok and all appear to be. We will be in the states for ~2 months and as we all know so much can change between now and late September when we will be plan to return. The ASQ requirement could be shelved by them or reduced tremendously, who knows. My wife and I will be Moderna vaccinated the day we land and hang in a Hotel in SF for 3 days. Hope to catch a Giants game

    Will update as we get closer to returning. This may be a moot point (Well I am hoping like hell it is)

    Movenpick BDMS has assured me that they will arrange with their IT staff to ensure I have HDMI cables available and functioning in the room, so that’s cool. They also comped me a private driver commuter van, so I don’t have to ride with others. Also cool. Pre flight PCR scheduled and COE in hand.

    All in all this particular travel process was the easiest so far. Dubai seems to be on point with replies within an hour or 2 from upload.

    Shaping up to be a decent trip with DXB-BKK direct in business class.

    You spelt BDSM wrong.

    Also don't be surprised if your "private driver commuter van" is in fact an AOT van. No-one shares transport to COE with strangers.

    'comped'

    Oneupmanship really is a full-time job for some on here.

    Let's hope you don't get stuck with one of those terrifying 32 inchers, slick.

    This will be my third time coming in to Thailand and on both other occasions I was in the van with other people going to the same hotel. “Up to 3 people with social distancing measures” and allowed only 2 pieces of luggage.

    This place had the same rule but offered sole occupancy transport for 2,000 baht, which I requested, to which they told me they would include free of charge. Now, they may or may not already know I’ll be the only person arriving to their hotel that day, so it might of been free anyway, but your claim that it’s a rule that only one person is allowed per van is patently false.

    Its true, I don’t want to spend 2 weeks isolated in a room with a poverty 32” tv from 1992 and went out of my way to ensure it didn’t happen.

    I also *gasp* asked them to cool the room to 23 degrees before I arrive and to provide extra pillows & blankets.

    Might even try the vegan menu in nothing but a bathrobe sitting on the balcony watching the 55” tv.

    Might even post about it just for you.

    I can understand the Thai penchant for greed maintaining this stupid mandatory requirement but in truth I suspect the idiots just haven't thought about it or perhaps the knuckleheads think all other countries are as fucked up as their own in the vaccination stakes.

    The insurance thing is fucking dumb as hell, but, the Luma and AXA policies cover asymptomatic hospitalization 100%

    Which is what WILL happen if you fail one of the many covid tests you’re required to take.

    Even the sandbox model for phuket requires TWO covid tests, which if you fail one you’re shipped off against your will to a hospital, even asymptomatic.

    This will be the third time in Thailand and I think the 6th quarantine in total since March 2020, hence the reason I’m so fucking picky as to what’s in the room.

    It's supposed to be "private car transfer" and included in the ASQ price, so they are not "comping" you anything.

    Sounds to me like they were trying to squeeze a few more quid out of unsuspecting passengers.

    I've got a mate who will soon be doing his fifth. Mind you two of them are from trips to the UK to get a decent vaccination.

    In fairness, you don't have to take out a year; you can buy policies that cover the duration of your trip.

    Negative, Ghost Rider. As I’ve stated already “airport transfer” is included but private transport is not. If nobody else is arriving on the same flight and going to the same hotel, you’ll have the shit to yourself. If there are others going, you’ll have company - unless you pay for your own van.

    No idea why you want to bicker about this small point. I’ve literally sat in the van with other people going to the Solitaire on my last ASQ.

    Hopefully on your next trip you have a passenger with you so the whole way you can think about how wrong you were.

    Not bickering at all. I had (and expected) a private car and got an AOT van kitted out with perspex screen, etc.

    I would have though any reputable hotel would offer this for the price they charge.

    Caveat emptor.

    So I made it to ASQ and the room is great. Big TV's, HDMI cables supplied and working. Balcony. Cold aircon.

    Was a mad rush getting the stupid pre-flight covid test, the results, then hauling ass to the airport all while pulling a 13 hour shift. Then at the Emirates check in counter in Dubai it took an HOUR AND A HALF to check in to the flight standing at the counter the whole time while some complete fool read and re-read the entry restrictions on his little computer. Finally got my boarding pass and hauled ass to the gate and straight onto the plane without eating (stopped at duty free tho)

    Got 2 bottles of Jameson into ASQ and been sippin' since arrival.

    Covid test lady in dubai jammed the swab so far up my nose it hit a wall, then tried to go some more, all while twisting the fucker. Got a minor nosebleed on the flight from it - a first.

    Food portions are tiny and bland, but whatever I ask for they bring, and theres a good 24 hour room service menu.

    Tried my hand at ordering from Tesco Lotus through the Grab App just now... Bread, Milk, Stevia, Ham, etc, and after the 5th driver cancelled I gave up.

    Cant figure out how to order from the 7-11 app as its all in Thai so gave up on it too.

    No WhatsApp/Line comms with the nurse. They just call on the room phone and ask my temp.

    PCR test #1 passed.

    WIFI is decent.

    Try using Tops. I had a false start on my first order but they phoned me up, apologised and after that it went very smoothly.

    Maccy D's are reliable.

    Panda Express (I think that's what it was) was also rather tasty.
