Getting to and from Khon Kaen / Re: Khon Kaen to Pattaya by bus
« on: July 20, 2018, 04:40:19 PM »
The flight might only be less than an hour, but add in the time you have to be at the airport early, the time walking to the terminal after landing, the time in the taxi queue, the time on the road and although still not as much as on the train I find the train less stressful.  And the trains are new now and get you right into the city at Hualamphong station and I can walk from there to the hotel I use near the Central Post Office.

Thanks for the prompt reply and action Rex.  Here's a screen shot taken a few minutes ago,.

FAQ, TOS, SPAM Policy / CleanTalk spam protection
« on: June 14, 2018, 03:01:18 PM »
Whilst I fully appreciate the need for spam protection I really am fed up with CleanTalk stopping me logging onto this site every single time.
I always get a message from CleanTalk saying that is suspected of spamming, but when I click on that number I get the message from CleanTalk that it did not match any of their records.  So why stop me logging on then?
My ISP is 3BB and I'm on fibre, not that that should make any difference.

My wife and I have a standing joke whenever we see a new restaurant when we're driving anywhere.  "Quick, let's go there before they close down".

And if Big C do not have one then next door is Baan and Beyond where I bought mine.  (Yes folks!  They're still open)

Yes, sorry, I should have mentioned that my Kasikorn branch is the one at the big Lotus next to the new KK Conference Centre.

I've used Kasikorn Bank for nearly 20 years, back when it was Thai Farmers Bank.  Never a problem and I use ATMs, internet banking to transfer my UK pension and have also  set up Kasikorn  standing orders and direct debits to pay the water and electricity.  Again, no problems.  Oh, I'm currently repaying a car loan to them.

But I suspect the bank for you is the one that will allow you to open an account with whatever visa you have and not put silly obstacles in the way, like asking for a work permit.

Same here.  Klang Muang Rd. just outside the ring road.
Thailand us getting to be more and more like a third world country.  And that includes the recent power cuts

And for the British among us,  only a  couple of hours from home.

Russell,  I don't wish to be rude, but the word is 'song taew'  with a 't' in the middle, not a 'k'.  It just means 'two rows'  which is how the seating is laid out in the back.

Rex, would you mind telling us what price you have been quoted for the hernia repair?  I did read somewhere that the soldier's hospital is a good place for hernia repair, but I don't remember where.

I suspect you are talking about two different people.  The one who can sometimes be less than helpful usually sits at number 4.

There's another pet food shop which has cages opposite Keha village near the big triangular temple, Wat Nong Waeng.  Go out of Khon Kaen on Klang Muang passing Wat Nong Waeng on your left.  The next village on your left is Keha.  U turn there and the shop is on your left immediately after the U turn.
