  2. So many visited over the years........so hard to choose just one. Ones that spring to mind: BKK - Wat Arun and Wat Pho though both very touristy. Also Wat Saket (the Golden Mount) and the Marble Temple (Wat Benchamabophit). Chaing Mai - Doi Suthep of course and, within the city moat my favourite is Wat Phra Singh. Outside Chiang Mai at the foot of Doi Pui mountain is Wat Umong. This is a very peaceful place lying in the forest. Chiang Rai - Undoubtedly Wat Prah Kaew. I must have been here at least 5 times. Just outside the city is the White Temple Wat Rong Kuhn. It does get very
  3. I haven't been to HH since 2014 but have fond memories of that trip and the lovely Secrets hostess who accompanied me. They have some great seafood restaurants there of course and the night market in the center was a good place to eat. I did enjoy the small bar area around Soi Bintabaht. The girls were friendly enough and, although I was not in the market, I'm sure a chap can always find a pleasant companion for the evening. To visit some of the local attractions you are best hiring a car and driver either by the half day or the full day. I don't recall prices but I remember it seeme
  4. Nice photos Jambo. I liked many of the quirky embellishments dotted around (the Covid reference on Chucky's overalls amongst others). I take it Sparky was made out of spark plugs? That was quite neat. At what age does the Senior Citizen discount kick in?
  5. Once Upon a Time in the West is the best western I have ever seen. The score by Morricone is legendary. The final duel between Henry Fonda and Charles Bronson is a cinematic classic. (Attempts at embedding unsuccessful)!
  6. Did it ruin the mood or did you at least finish the job in true Pattaya style?
  7. 😂😂 The guy in the green top at the end giving it the shithouse shuffle:
  8. I would choose Thai because it is my favourite and if I am using work vacation days for a 2 or 3 week holiday then a direct flight is worth the extra (I've no experience with EVA). If time is not an issue and I would be spending + 1 month in Thailand then Etihad would suit me fine. They used to be my airline of choice a few years back when there were no direct flights from my local airport.
  9. Just watched the second one - Ayutthaya and Kanchanburi. It is also on tomorrow evening (Thursday) when MP is in BKK.
  10. But since his visit to the purramedics he is feline mutt betta.......
  11. Atticus on Secrets, Atticus on here (new member here, 12 years BM on Shhh!!)
  12. Hello to all, I have been on Secrets Forum for 12 years, also known as Atticus over there. I have never been a prolific poster, though in the days of the Secrets 'Bangkok section' I posted a lot on there, with hotel / sightseeing recommendations and advice. I 'see' some familiar faces on here, Phil, Larry, Boydeste, Thai Spice, Moonfly (with a different handle) and many others. Cheers! Atticus
