  1. Bang Saen might be an option if working in Chonburi and want a shorter commute than Pattaya Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I live in Ban Chang Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I went to immigration in Map Ta Phut a couple of months ago to check requirements for a retirement extension as I cannot do the usual marriage extension because I am not in Thailand long enough (needs 28 days to process and I’m only here for 26 each time). I also had the money in a joint account and they told they need double if it is a joint account. I opened a new savings account in my name only and put 800k in it. It’s giving me 3% interest so not too bad. For info, Immigration at Map Ta Phut are really nice to deal with and try to be as helpful as they can. It is also very quite, were only about 5 other customers there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think there is a simpler option if you can only get a single entry online, go to immigration once in Thailand and change from single to multi entry, think it is about 3000 baht Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I guess Asia was too general, swap Asia with Thailand in my OP then. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Isn’t that why a lot of us enjoy Asia, where laws are just a guideline? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’d say those boys have the biggest balls in any sport. Quote from Guy Mitchell about one of the corners “Get it wrong and you go through the pub door at 150mph”
  10. You could try ‘The Bank’ an exchange shop in Soi Rungland opposite the telephone exchange building on Pattaya Tai. It is a Chinese/Thai place and the amount of currency that changes hands in there is incredible, lots of tour operators etc use it, they always give a slightly better rate than normal banks when buying baht.
  11. If you use an IPhone you can switch on “Wi-fi calling” in Mobile Data section of settings. This allows you to send and receive SMS through Wi-Fi instead of data roaming
  12. Got one a few years ago saying that there were 2 Nigerian astronauts stranded on the International Space Station for over 1 year. The Nigerian space agency didn’t have enough money to pay for fuel to get them home. If you send the a few hundred dollars towards the fuel you will receive a percentage of their back dated wages worth millions of dollars. That one certainly tickled me.
  13. Great to see it again like that again, I arrived in ‘95. Quite amazing the amount of new buildings, especially on Thrappaya Road.
  14. I’d say it’s ridiculous to consider extra tuition for a 6 year old, especially if she is around mid table in her learning unless you really want to push her academically. My kids are also at Int school, ages 17 and 14. I started some private tuition lessons in maths for them 1 year ago to prepare them for exams, cost is 500 baht per hour for a teacher to come to the house for 1 on 1 teaching. This is in Ban Chang though.
  15. I’m back about 26th May. Be good to catch up mate 👍
