Re: Thailand returns

Hey I am looking for some sort of holiday house in Phuket for around a month for 2 people and I'm not sure if all the traveling agencies online will be able to give me the best deals/houses. I would appreciate any PMs about the places available around Phuket and how to find them and what price ranges I will be looking at. Any information is appreciated, thanks.

Most of them just take your measurements and send the order to a sweat shop.

The good ones are expensive, shangri la hotel and around it is a good area for good tailors. Count 250-400us for a nice suit.

Re: Thailand returns

How do you get hooked so often when so few actually speak English?

Im not sure I've been living Kuala Lumpur and the facilities here, internet/food/entertainment seems more inviting to me, in the eye of a local although Thai is always fun.

Re: Thailand returns

So i arrived in phuket now, after a short trip to pattaya and hong kong and macau.
Pattaya is where old men go to die imo. Never seen so many old fockers in my life.
Macau is awsome tho but kinda pricey.
Right now im staying at a hotel in bangla road, but gonna change to a better place tomorrow, the internet here is useless for other things than chatting.
Would be cool to meet up with someone, im kinda board of being alone.
Its just weird going in to a club and start parting alone, haha.

So if anybody wants to show me around that would be great...

I just laugh. So i obv choose him as my driver and he drove really slow to so i could tell he wassent bluffing.
