Re: Thailand returns

shouldnt affect anybody here but here goes:

BREAKING NEWS:
Immigration crackdown on border runners

BANGKOK (thaivisa.com) -- Thai Immigration Bureau has issued a new regulation to be enforced from today, June 1, 2009.

In a crackdown on foreigners who regularly abuse the tourist exemption rule of getting 15 days stay at border entry points, the Immigration Bureau has confirmed and informed thaivisa.com of the following new regulation:

A foreigner who has entered the kingdom four (4) consecutive times on 15 days tourist exemption stamps, will not be allowed to leave the country and reenter Thailand. The only option is to exit Thailand and re-enter via an international airport, which will allow a further 30 day stay.

Thaivisa.com has today confirmed the new regulations with the Immigration checkpoints in Pong Nam Ron and Aranyaprathet at the Cambodian border. We have also got confirmation from bus visa run companies that the new regulations are enforced from today June 1, 2009. Immigration checkpoints bordering Laos, Myanmar and Malaysia are expected to enforce the regulation shortly.

The new rules does not affect holders of visas issued abroad. Foreigners are advised to apply for a Tourist visas or Non-Immigrant visas at a Royal Thai Embassy or consulate outside Thailand instead of abusing the 15 day exemption rule.

As usual, holders of Tourist visas will be given 60 days stay while Non-Immigrant visa holders will be allowed 90 days stay.

Re: Thailand returns

it is but it is doable. just keep a/c on 24/7 at 20C and windows/doors open and let the landlord overcharge you

Re: Thailand returns

You should ask the owner to forward you the electricity bill and just pay it yourself in your local 7/11, im stayin in a 2 story house and am paying around 4 to 5k a month, cant imagine what you guys do that you pay 14k a month.

And water is pretty much for free, think its like 300 baht a month for me.

Re: Thailand returns

There likely won't be a separate bill since the landlord would get billed for the entire complex rather than just 1 apartment at a time.

Nevertheless the landlord is completely taking the piss if he's charging 14000-19000 for electric and water lol.

Re: Thailand returns

Just arrived in Chiang Mai. For you budget travellers, avoid the chicken curry on the train from bkk.

Best drinking/dancing spots? Disclaimer: brought girlfriend with me from home.

Edit: Grinding in Phangan, possible with semi-functional internet connection?

Re: Thailand returns

setting aside all the hookers, massage places, working girls, freelancers, semi-working girls, girls who u give a lot of taxi money to, etc. i'm just asking an open but serious question. why else would guys come from around the world to visit? it's the girls, in some way shape or form, even if it's not a full on "working one".
