Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I'm going to go to KL, Malaysia for a visa in a few days..anyone go there recently? I think I'm only applying for one..so should be ok from what I've read. Can just got get another one in 3 months time.. is ok for me.. will need a border crossing break by then..free Thai visas until May 2010 from what I understand..

The 20+hour bus ride to Laos vs. 1 hour flight to KL. for about 1500baht more seems alright for me..

Any comments on KL?

It's not really that interesting but you could spend a few days doing the standard tourist stuff if you really wanted to.

I did the airasia visa run to KL and back on the same day not long ago and even though I hate flying its defnitely way better than the bus thing to Burma or whatever

I went to KL for my past 3 visas and if you take a hotel in bukit bintang area, there is always something you can do 24/24. And prepare some money cause you will shop a lot.

I prefer Laos (vang vieng) if i'm in a party mood, but the 20h bus ride will make me commit suicide so i return to KL everytime.

Malaysian food is actually really good and cheap. I haven't been to KL but I ate very well in Penang.

you can NOT pick up girls there (well there's a few randoms you could probably pick up but not the staff) so it keeps away a lot of the sad/fat sex tourists, and have met some interesting farangs there. good music (been there several times and they havent played money for nothing, which is a big plus in my books)

they do top notch western food and some thai, full english was so big i couldnt move for an hour. same with the burgers. imported NZ lamb, all very good.

and nana plazas just 5 mins away if ya wanna get jiggy, jiggy afterwards.

enjoy!


tyvm sir

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

You can stay pretty cheap in KL, in the Chinatown or Sentral area there are a few cheap hotels - nothing special but good enough for a couple of day visa run.

Food is cheap but the nightlife sucks. Take your laptop and polish up on your starcraft skills or something. As above malaysian food is cheap and good, due to the mulitcultural nature of Malaysia you can get everything from Indian to Nasi Pedang to hokkien food and it's all cheap.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

good to know thai fitness centers follow the same mantra as US gyms. It will be just like home, so to speak. Anyway possible to barfine the aerobics instructors?

Also like to know if any Americans have reopened their partypoker account in LOS. I miss the pawty pokah experience!

hi everyone, i m relatively new to 2p2 and my english kinda suxs but i would like to ask u great ppl some things about thailand.

first of all how much money do u think i need to move from europe to thailand and survive there like 3 months to make it my place without having to stress myself about how much i got left?

is online poker legal there and how much does a decent house cost if i m with 3-5 ppl ( if i can find them ) and also good internet for everyone?

the thing is that i want to move there to make good money and live cheap i m a very good poker player who plays online only.

thank u very much if u respond to my post.

i'm probably more reckless with drugs than 95% of the 2+2 regulars over here, and there is *no way* that i would buy pills off of "a girl who works in a bar" you are asking for it, big time. seriously.

it depends on what you mean by "good nightlife" i really enjoy the Kata Beach area, but i motorbike to Patong, Rawai, Karon, and P-town all the time for nightlife. Kata Night Bazaar area is like a more laid back Bang La, a lot less crowded, but in the same vein. I think the Rawai discos are some of the more fun discos on the island.

Pretty sure the ya-baa pills are pinkish/red also, and I've never seen red E's either fwiw. So you should probably give it a miss
