    DOXY pep & PrEP together?

    Yes, I read the same things about both. Doxy seems to have more possible side effects and says no alcohol when taking Doxy. I am no big drinker but do like a drink or three at the weekends. Now while alcohol can effect any medication Doxy seems to have a few I don't like the sound of. When I get to my Dean St appointment I will ask their advice.

    DOXY pep & PrEP together?

    I was doing some quick research on Doxy and looking at the possible side effects. Seems to me amoxicillin would do a decent job on its own and it's easier to get in nearly any pharmacy in Thailand. I do have an appointment at Dean St clinic in London before my next trip so while getting my usual tests done and PrEP I will see what they say about this.

    DOXY pep & PrEP together?

    I use PrEP when I go to Thailand but can that be taken with PEP? Or is it too much at the same time?

    Onward ticket?

    Without revealing all my plans I will be going to Thailand intending to stay up to a year starting from June. I won't reveal how I am going to do it yet but I have this question, Being English and with a UK passport, We all know I will get the standard 30 days ( unless it's still at 90? which was temporary) So I will be leaving Heathrow on a one-way ticket. I did this before in 2019 but I did have a ticket (genuine) to Cambodia as I had a week there. The bloke at the check-in desk picked up right away that I was on a single and said I couldn't enter Thailand on a one-way ticket. I had the Camboida ticket so I showed him the booking as he was happy. This time however is different, the visa I hope to get means my passport will be sent away and I will get a 90-day extension while the visa gets issued. How to get out of Heathrow on a one-way ticket? Any tips apart from actually buying a genuine ticket which I will end up not using and is a waste of money?

    Air China

    Big update, Flight cancelled I got an e-mail the other day from Air China telling me the flight from LHR to PEK had been moved to another now later time. This meant I would miss the connection to BKK and spend a night in the airport. No thanks, I don't think so. So after phoning them, I cancelled the whole thing. They have acknowledged the cancellation request and said they will pay it back. Mind you they hadn't taken the money from my card yet. I noticed on Skyscanner the flights advertised by them have changed, now 20 hours to BKK instead of 15. I would imagine others have been cancelling.

    Air China

    I have seen mixed reviews about the airline. Mind you I have used Cathay Pacific & Ethiad and while I didn't totally "hate" each of those flights I was very underwhelmed with the experiences. I am not expecting perfection, 5kg carry-on limit, maybe not the best meals and maybe the screen won't work (so I read) I can get around these factors, Get snacks to take on at the airport, take my laptop with movies loaded and kindle and do the neck pillow work around ( take out the stuffing and fill it with things like socks and t-shirts)

    Update. Booked with Air China. All the other airlines still to much for me. EVA dropped to £700 but still a high price. Air China £556 and the seat selection (4 seats) free! 17 hours going , 20 back. Flight times work for getting the train both ways to Heathrow and back. Sent from my SM-A805F using Tapatalk

    Air China

    Am really thinking of booking with Air China, Looking at Sky Scanner for £550 with 4 free seats from Heathrow to Bangkok in November. That is nearly £500 cheaper than the flight I was looking for, which was Emirates from Stansted. The price from Stansted is nearly £1000 plus 4 seats Looking at reviews for Air China the carry-on is only 5kg, the meals and inflight entertainment are not the best, and some reviews say the screen wasn't even working. Thinking about it I could take on sandwiches and snacks, take my laptop loaded with movies and TV series. I could get around the 5kg limit by taking my laptop stuffing some things in the laptop bag and using self-check-in. In the past using self-check-in nothing got weighed when you only got carry-on. Then if the screen doesn't work or the selection is rubbish I got my own entertainment. Taking snacks gets around the meal choices. So, what do you think? Go for it. or wait and see if prices drop for other airlines and airports?
  12. Interesting. Am thinking of going back end of April. Always have thought it would be nice to have a fast track at LHR. When you used this Kingdomguy what terminal was it? I looked on their website but no "premium service" with fast track is mentioned?

    Miami Hotel Soi 13

    Miami Hotel Soi 13

    It was fine for me. Room over looked the pool on the 3rd floor. Kettle and cups but no coffee provided. Small fridge and safe. Shower was fine. Bed a little on the hard side for my liking but I manged to sleep. Joining fee, The higher cost room you book the more guests you can have with less cost. Room I booked meant 1 guest free but second guest was 500 baht. If I had booked the top level room then 2 guests free. I had no problems during my stay. Good location. 7-11 right there and places like the red lion for food and of course a short walk to any action and BTS. Sent from my SM-A805F using Tapatalk

    Was the Grand Swiss

    Any new intel on the hotel on soi 11/1 that was the Grand Swiss? In April it was being worked on and in November looking like the work was coming to an end.
