  1. In Phuket for a few days last month after an absence of 12 years. Was impressed with their Walking Street---far superior (in looks at least ) to Pattaya. Beaches still terrific. Stayed at Kata beach, hotel 70% Russian families making it dull and fairly annoying at the same time. But wouldn't mind at all spending more time there, still a very beautiful part of LOS.
  2. Thing about EVA is that you can't reserve a seat until you have actually booked/paid for the ticket. Since I need to have an aisle seat that was a problem and now fly Cathay since you can choose a seat BEFORE you pay for the ticket. EVA is fine but the seat thing means flying Cathay for me.
  3. Kungsri ATM at the Avenue Mall allows 30K baht withdrawal. Using my Schwab card no charges at either end.
  4. Correct, no sea view as fairly low rise. Markland is an interesting possibility but a little far from LK.
  5. East Coast Real Estate has some listings you might have a look there. Looking forward to seeing you come August .
  6. Dave, take a look at The Urban condos. Soi 15, walk to LK, The Avenue, pool and gym on site, . Well within your budget. Have a friend who lives there and loves it.
  7. Air con and toilets nice to have. Plus I enjoy the window shopping from time to time.
  8. Mirrors my feelings about the place---liked it better in those days but the passing years have made the town a little more user friendly. Still, that old feeling of getting into town and knowing that just about everyone you saw anywhere was focused on the same thing-- the ladies!--is long gone. It was that "Man's Town" aspect that made it so much fun and so different than any other place. That character of the city has vanished and been replaced by hundreds of tour buses, throngs of tourists for whom Pattaya is just another stop on a pre-packaged holiday. The ladies are still here and easily found if wanted, but that old character has been swamped by the new and makes the town seem far less unique.
  9. Missing was good but his movie about race car driver N. Lauda was terrific. Watch it if available somewhere.
  10. Just finished it. Very, very good.
  11. Yep. Great series, Idris Alba is top notch.
  12. Was excellent! Hope they do another season. First series excellent. Hope the follow up is as good.
  13. Gave it a try, just didn't grab me. But the original Narcos is fabulous, binged it and sad when it ended.
  14. First season excellent, second not so much.
  15. Have not tried this place but been to both Patricks and Beefeater twice and both disappointing. Best steak in town for me is at Andre, Thappraya soi 6, also Belgian and has an attached bar specializing in Belgian beers. Try the filet, excellent and very reasonably priced.
