Sick bungy jump by the way. I saw the video and am definitely jealous. How close to the ground did you get? Was it more or less awesome than you anticipated?

-Bill

p.s. I'm back from Peru.
yo bill! you back in kata then? things are good fun round here at the moment!

I was 5 days in but fletch bought out today to cut his losses because we both decided it was probably a bit too easy, i got 36k baht.

Yeh the Bungy jump was insane! i completely **** myself to be honest. The closest you get to the ground is around 60 meters, and yeh it was waay better than i anticipated! you'll have to go do it sometime.

oh yeh if anyone wants to see me **** myself doing the worlds highest bungy in macau here it is..

whats the thai mentality?
I found a pretty sick apartmen for 160k/month. i want it for 2months and 280k. In germany this would be impossible. what about thailand?

Re: Thailand returns

**** MiT, my heart was pounding just watching that vid! Very brave mate!

livestream, what kind of apartment is that? 160k is crazy expensive. Is it the suites by the Emporium?

You can certainly try to bargain. I'm paying 46k for my one bedroom apartment - they wanted 56k + 2k for monthly internet connection. Offer 250k, they'll probably make you a counter-offer that's not far from your 280k figure

Re: Thailand returns

hmmm, livestream, for some reason I associate that photo of your place with the same resort that myironthumb is staying at...I'm sure I saw the same when I was searching out places.

Also, I'm sure you can bargain a TON on that price!

When I saw the pictures in your link I thought it was these villa's here

http://www.villasgrandcru.com/

you might want to have a look at those, they're pretty amazing and at a similar price aswell. although the location isnt quite as good, it's maybe 10 mins motorbike ride away from the apartment in your link.

still very sick though
