Re: I am sooooooooo stupid!!

I have a simple policy: in dimly lit places (that applies to all bars), I pay the exact amount (I don't tip); in well lit places like 7-Eleven or restaurants I use 1000 THB notes to get small change.

Re: Thailand's push toward "Cashless Society"

Wild dreams . . . in Thailand I do all hotels walk-in). Don't you make use of Agoda? I have found their rates so much cheaper than walk-in. In Thailand, I stay in places in the range of 300-500 THB that are often not even found on Agoda. However abroad (most notably Taiwan last year), it is indeed ...

I will probably stay at Marina Inn next time. Got their landline phone number as well: 038-416712 (the one on google maps ...

Re: Thailand's push toward "Cashless Society"

Wild dreams, just as the high-speed rail links between (places of your choice). I'm paying cash wherever possible, and will resist digital payment wherever possible; the only exceptions are MRT card (that one is really useful as I ride the MRT at least twice per week on average), and paying for flig...

Re: Pattaya turns 33

Re: Going for a little swim at Jomtien Beach? Read this

"...Jomtien beach which has reportedly turned green and has sent out pungent contaminated smell..."
