    Dream Hotel

    I just stayed there for two nights. It was 78 USD without breakfast. For that amount I would stay again. I am sorry now that I didn't know about the canal so close to the hotel. Next time I will try to take a ride. The taxi from BKK airport had a bit of difficulty finding the hotel.

    Ok. Thank you. I don't trust hotels on credit cards for extras after I got charged once for things I never ever use. So now it's always cash. Sometimes I give 100 USD in cash and take a pic of the note and then give it to them. Now some Thai hotels are also taking a pic of the note and also check the numbers and make sure they give you back the same note. Of course always they have to give me a receipt for the deposit. Good luck the next time. I still can't make up my mind where to stay.

    How come Danum? Didn't they give you a receipt for the deposit? In every instance any hotel has taken a deposit they give me a receipt and when they return it they give it to me and make me sign for the return.

    Thanks Marlowe. I am like you. I would rather spend on girls than hotels but I also hate to be in a noisy area as I need to sleep too. I did look at the hotels in soi 11 but seems to be noisy or the rooms are too small. Maybe I should look at CP then.
  5. Has anyone stayed here? How is it and how far is it from the main road? Do they allow joiners? I am looking for a decent hotel where I can get someone to come via Smooci and at the same time there is not much noise from the street. I am forced to stay around the soi 11,13 or 10. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you
  6. I have seen this happen once or twice if the immigration officer discovers it.

    Rabbit card

    Yes but I have no problems with them asking for it one time. They told me every time I top up I have to show my passport. Just like the SIM card too. The first time I had to do all the paperwork. But after that they never ask for it.

    Rabbit card

    For the first time today I was asked for my passport when I went to top up my rabbit card. I had topped up twice during last week and they never asked for it. There is a notice saying it's the anti money laundering act and this rule is effective from 19 February 2019. I had to get someone else to top up my card and now I feel I would not be allowed to top it up myself. I accept asking for passport the first time but this is ridiculous.

    Tommy Emmanuel

    I managed to get one. A good friend who is also a famous Thai musician managed to get me one. Thank you.

    Tommy Emmanuel

    I would say he is among the top acoustic guitarists around. The tickets seems to have been sold out so I wonder who has bought them? Not really the kind of musician the Thai people would like.
  12. Anyone going to see him at the Ultra Arena on the 1st May?

    Flight Cancellations at Suvarnabhumi

    Lots of factors to consider. Over flight permission and alternate aerodromes etc. Also the Thais never seem to know how to make life easy. They always try the complicated ones.

    I hope they got hotels but the Airlines will say beyond their control.

    5 star hotel with live music

    Can anyone recommend me a 5 star hotel with live music? Not far from the malls.
