Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

You are right, the View Talay 5D listings are lumped together with 5C, unlike for example View Talay 2A and 2B which has their own specific groupings. There are 11 5D units listed within the 5C grouping of 72. BTW, there's no View Talay 5A, 4 or 7D. Units are still for sale by the developer in all V...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

First of all the whole View Talay argument vs. Airbnb is a canard. There are practically no View Talay apartments for rent on Airbnb."....Not hardly. Go to airbnb website and enter View Talay 5C as an example. The return is 72 rentals all with a daily rate. The issue is not the competence of t...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

So much misinformation here! Not sure what misinformation you are referencing but no landlord or agency would register a tourist without proper id and passport information. The question is, does the landlord report the tenant to Immigration like all the registered hotels do?... Not hardly. As menti...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

Since there are multiple agencies that rent units in all the View Talays, I find it doubtful they will commit the resources to stop the rentals. Of course if they are so stupid as to try , values of View Talay Units are likely to collapse . Can't see how that will be good for Thailand? Many of my f...

Re: Thai Court Rules Against Airbnb

This is excellent news and for once the Courts got it right. Here in Pattaya, condo owners like myself and my friends have been fighting a losing battle as our homes have been turned into hotels during the high season. Enforcing this like anything else in Thailand will be difficult but it gives us a...

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

A little perspective, the area by the restaurant in the picture is in Na Jomtien which is about 6 kilometers from the gay beach. From my condo above the beach, I haven't witnessed any unusual discharges or visual changes to the water quality. With that said, we know Pattaya and Jomtien beaches are n...

Re: Hotdogs

Getting all beef, kosher style hotdogs is a real challenge here. I was in Taipei during Songkran and learned there are many Costco's there. A quick trip revealed no Kirkland, Nathan's, beef hotdogs but only pork even at their food court which of course was a bummer.

Re: Hotdogs

Re: Hong Kong Celebrity Chef relocated to Pattaya

We tried Comfort last night. We both had the cheese burger with white truffle mayonnaise. 230 gm and delicious. Will go back again for sure. I agree as three of us ate there last night and we all had the cheese burgers. I thoroughly enjoyed my burger and fries but the others didn't share my enthusi...
