Try to get a double entry tourist visa before you go. This will give you 6 months if you do 2 extensions and one visa run. If you're only granted a single entry and need more time in LOS, you can do a visa run to get another 30 days or make a trip out to an embassy to apply for another tourist visa.

TV dinners are illegal in most jurisdictions of Thailand, you risk getting fined, jailed, blacklisted, and deported.

Re: Thailand returns

Jesus, speaking of bad news

(BangkokPost.com) - Southern insurgents shot dead a government official in the southern province of Pattani on Tuesday before beheading him, police said.

The victim is identified as Attapong Gonlom, 26, an assistant chief of his village council in Yarang district.

According to police, he was shot when he was driving a pickup truck in front of a school in the district. Then, the insurgents dragged his body out of the vehicle and cut his head off in front of students and teachers.

Also in Pattani, three patrol soldiers were wounded by a roadside bombing. They were rushed to a nearby hospital.

seems like the guy should have known better. also, lol at the other people who have been charged with ""lese-majeste"

"a French passenger on Thai Airways who refused to turn off his reading light while sitting next to a princess; and more recently two young Thais who failed to stand up for the king's anthem in the cinema."

Re: Thailand returns

Dire : ploenchit and wireless road are two different world in term of price. For that kind of money you can live on ratchamdari ( langsuan is top ) or Chitlom, middle of bangkok, green ( view on the park and polo club ), calm and easy access to everything.
The best deals are not in english on internet. Try to ask a thai girl to do a search for you in thai or just walk around and ask.

cheers

In 30sec in found :

48m2 langsuan brand new condo 1br great facilities 30K

93m2 ratchamdari road 2br 30k

Re: Thailand returns

Apparently it was actually a controlled detonation of a reported bomb placed under a bus used by the chinese embassy.

Happened out the front of bangkok gardens (near oakwood), there was an article on the news this morning.

Nobody hurt which was good, the soi sucked yesterday given that it was blocked off in the morning for the bomb stuff and then flooded in the afternoon.
