Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I arrived to Chiang Mai 05:45 this morning and plan on staying a few days. Anyone feel like show me around today or tomorrow or just take a coffee and chat for a while? I pretty much suck at poker though but I'm a quite nice swedish fellow.

Also I tried to download FTP but got this message:
"Sorry, the National Police have suspended the connection to this web site.
With photos. Or inappropriate messages such raunchy gambling."

Anyone else had it or is it probably just this place I sit on atm?

summer breeze is the answer if you want Patong. there was a place some people stayed here in Kata that the internet was only slightly dodgy, and Cracker has been staying in a place up on the mountain in Kata with grindable internet and a monthly rate.

I'm currently in Udon Thani and enjoying it.. prices are so cheap.. 10baht for a thai coffee, 30-50baht for a thai meal..

I spent the new years with my GF in her home near Nong Khai, and went and got my Visa extension yesterday at the UT immigration office.. a breeze. Not many other young falangs here..but if your running with friends or need a change of pace from Phuket/Bangkok/Chiang Mai.. I recommend to stop over here..

I know a lot of people use the Thai Embassy in Laos these days for Visas, and recommend UT for a few days. I'm staying near the bus station, as I took the bus up here.. I'm a nit lately..trying to find the cheapest ways in LOS (land of smiles for you noobs). I've spent the last 2 1/2 months in Phuket, and it's a nice break to be out of there..so many non-Thais and prices are high right now. Bangkok for a few days this weekend on my travels back south, but thought I'd mention a place I've not seen much feedback on.

I'd also say I've been using a DTAC pay as you go service on an Nokia E72 for a modem..and no problem wherever I stay for modem access...

I did stay in a barn, and **** in a squat toilet for 5 days (with no TP) during New Years. But 400 baht bought the whole party beer, and we had a good time singing Karaoke, etc.. I was at my GF's "mama's" house. But was fed well, and rent was free..( I kickbacked some baht for the good nature of it). And saw some 'real' Thailand for a change.

I'd also like to comment to all the 'playas' who like playing mental games with the bar girls.. get off your computers for a week and see where they come from, and how they live. It was a welcome change to the norm in Phuket, etc.. But I do miss the great beaches and daily swims in the oceans..

BTW..there are casinos rumored in the works in the North area


Best luck to all in 2010!! Let's keep the poker players in Thailand connected and welcome all the noobs to the LOS in the best way possible.

lol found all of this funny.

udon thani's cool yes but it's a bit of a ghost town. i found CM cheaper also

hope I got enough of that correct that you can read it. The similar-looking consonants that sound different and the similar-sounding ones that look different make writing a real pain for me.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

PS. I think most of the guys here prefer Kata over Patong for longer stays, but if this is your first time here and you're only staying for 4 weeks chances are you will want to go to Patong a bunch....

clicking buttons works for you in poker so why don't you try that in writing thai also !?

Good hotel for sure, but not for poker. It's impossible to grind at that place.

I have the same thing, is it just becuase of the relative unfamiliarness with the alphabet or do you just need to view them bigger?

It could be the font. When I first started learning to read Lao I had a lot of trouble reading different fonts. I still can't figure out most handwriting.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I am thinking about going to Thailand after finishing my education.

Is online poker legal in Thailand? And do you have to pay any taxes?

What about health, insurance?

Awesome country in my opinion.
