Re: Boystown Soi

I can understand the frustration if you happen to be in Pattaya at this time and want easy access to the bars. However, the work being done on the soi is years overdue and the time to get this work done is during low season - and right now it's low season.

The gent...

Re: Visa and Passport Question

You can pay the fee for the new passport in US dollar, Thai baht, or credit card if you do it at the ACS in Bangkok (no bank draft requirement as they now do for outreach visits). Not only is there no requirement for a bank draft at the USA embassy, they won't even accept a bank draft. The bank dra...

Re: Visa and Passport Question

Re: Restaurant "Improvements"

.... and just as important is to use a proper baking potato, preferably an Idaho russet. They can't serve 'em if they can't get 'em. The only Russets I've ever seen in Thailand are imported and sold at Villa Market. I've never seen a Yukon Gold in Thailand. Maybe some of the more expensive, high en...
