Re: Airport Link opens

Thank you for your reply. Mr. Spencer's comments are enough to put me off the Link for the time being. Escalators and luggage do not go together and the taxi problem at Makassan is surprising. Every other car on Suk. is a taxi at times so this saturation will eventually lead to more at the Terminal,...

Re:Airport Link opens

I want to give it a try and will probably do so when I return to BKK for the Euro winter (Ugh.) Taxis are getting a pain, or at least getting a meter was quite hard on my last visit and limo prices are a scam. I also like the time for the Express service as I always seem to sit in rush hour trafiic ...

Re: Suvarnabhumi hates "Dang Dao".

Officials in Immigration offices (in Bkk.) are usually extremely helpful.

Maybe they have a more relaxed existence.

Thais love a cushy life, above all else.

Re: Suvarnabhumi hates "Dang Dao".

I landed at Thailands International Airport was was treated very badly by the immigration official. I made a small mistake on my entry card and the guy was outraged. I kept my cool even though this rude person treated me in a most disrespectful manner. I felt he was egging me on to start a fight.. ...

Re: The Value of a Tourist.

I haven't read all the above posts, it has become a long thread. I feel that there is a vast difference between the tourist and the ex-pat. In this sense, I am confined to largely referring to the English, as that is my nationality. I worked in Bkk. for considerable periods. I lived more or less as ...

Re: Maid in Bangkok

Have a talk with the Building Manager asking what it is all about and the possible consequences of you continuing in these harmless actions.

Re: foreigners have got no rights?

I live in UK for the Summer and Bkk. in the Winter there. I am noise sensitive because my home in the UK is detached in a particulary quiet area. Bliss really, except for the dark, cold winter months. I always bring earplugs when coming to Thailand. The rubber ones are useless. Boots do a wax (I thi...
