  1. I've always gone to Fortune Town. It's opposite Central Rama 9 and can be reached by Rama9 Station on the MRT.
  2. Cheers for the heads up, those questions are in there to try and foil spam bots, probably hasn't been updated in years, I'll look into it and get someone to fix it....

    Thai Friendly Saving Pics

    Maybe screenshot your screen then crop out any unnecessary bits.
  4. Today is the last day for Artbox before it closes up.
  5. The other thing I noted from Sticks column was he talked about Scala Cinema near Siam Square closing, I was sad to see it go but it was inevitable. I went to see films there a few times, it really had the feel of going to the UK Cinema in the 80s. No computer system for ticketing, they'd just cross off the seats on a sheet of paper. Popcorn for 40B and older style seating. Luckily Bangkok has about 684 soulless multiplexes to choose from instead.

    BTS Skytrain Bangkok

    I got a bus back from Chatcuhak Park during peak hours last week and they'd said "sod it" to the distancing and were just letting all the seats be used.
  7. It's very dark at the back of the park. [emoji6]
  8. I stuck my head in Artbox earlier, wasn't too many stalls open. A few customers at the back seemed to be eating and washing it down with the "amber nectar"....not sure if it was BYO or they'd managed to purchase with their meal.
  9. There was a new night market "Rod Fai" style place that opened almost on my doorstep, I think they only had a few days running before the CV lockdown hit. I hope to road test it if they are allowed to open soon.

    BTS Skytrain Bangkok

    There are plenty of areas of Bangkok that are dead to me if there’s no MRT/BTS link but the map has really grown in the last 18 months. The MRT Blue line is now a full loop, a la the London Circle Line and since they pushed the BTS Green line on past Mo Chit, they've been opening stations every few months. The last stop, Ku Khot, is right near Don Muang....but behind it. I’m sure enterprising taxi drivers and Songtaews will hang out there once it’s open. I don’t think there will be any kind of direct rail from DM to Swampy until the Chinese bullet train from Laos to Pattaya is running...one of those I’ll believe it when I see it projects. I think the ARL to Don Muang is due next year but it well terminate from the new all singing and dancing Rail hub at Bang Sue. Although most of the line and stations look ready, the big hub at Bang Due still looks some way off and CV19 probably hasn’t exactly sped up construction.
  11. I had a quick look around Google. It seems quite a few invision board websites are currently having this issue, not just us.
  12. The BTS Skywalk from Asok station is currently being extended past Robinson/Times Square mall, and now reaches all the way to just outside Artbox on Soi 10. Very handy if you don't like dealing with Bangkok sidewalks and crossing Sois. It probably only leaves about 150m between the furthest Asok and Nana BTS exits.

    New Emoticons!

    Most of the reactions increment your rep score by 1 point. Except Sad and Confused, which do nothing.
  14. My favourite Pizza joint I used to order in from Foodpanda closed but has now re-appeared at Artbox. I'll miss being able to order in but I'm sure they'll do way better for passing trade here than where they were before.

    MRT Subway Underground Lines Bangkok

    4 of the new stations are stunning from an architecture point of view, they've actually made the effort to blend them in with the surrounding area as opposed to just plonking a shiny 21st century station in the middle of the neighbourhood. Good for tourism that Grand Palace and Chinatown are now reachable via MRT/BTS.
  17. It's good to see that site being used for something useful, albeit on a temporary basis. Reminds me of a scaled down version of Talat Rot Fai (Ratchada)

    Rabbit card

    Mangmoon card would be great if it also included BTS As it is, only for MRT (Blue and Purple), Buses and the Airport Link.

    Rabbit card

    I went to register my Rabbit card with passport at Mo Chit a little while back, at the same time that then allowed me to link my Rabbit Card up to be used with LINE pay. As a result I no longer have to top up credit on my rabbit card now, it deducts the fare straight out of my bank and I get a message on LINE as soon as I swipe out at the station.
  22. Guys, Both this and the Pattaya forum are having some server issues at the moment. We are currently running on a backup server, the forum may look a bit strange with missing functions while this is resolved. please bear with us.
