Re: Ask us about Thailand!

offcourse it has to do with the season, but its sick that they double the prices, here its like 100bht more
i dont like phuket cause of high prices for everything, maybe i should just stay here cause i prolly end up doing same **** but have to pay more
on the other hand maybe not cause the go go´s in phuket are a joke, so i prolly save some there and better beaches so i might actually spend some time on them

so gimme some hotel recommendations! khrap!

if you get out of the tourist beaches you can find things cheaply there too

but obviously phuket is on average more expensive than other places

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I'm sure this has been asked before in this humongous thread, but what are some good sites to view houses for rent in Chiang Mai (or anywhere else for that matter)?

At the moment we pay zero, which might change once the government realises how many people are doing it. People with real jobs pay euro-style taxes though. Australia also has a nationwide 10% GST/VAT which applies to everything except fresh food.

We also have euro-style excise taxes on all the good things in life like Alcohol, Tobacco etc. A pint costs $8 and a pack of cigarettes $12-14 in perth.

I help my parents out by providing them an unused social security number with which they are free to use to dodge tax in any way they see fit. I estimate this saves them around $60,000 per year by writing off company expenses as CEO salary paid to me which I never receive.

Taxation is theft, peace out.

When you dont give them money the day after they are too embarresed to ask for it.

All my friends that has lived in Thailand for 3-20 years are joking about guys like you, because many of them have also been this naive once.

Thailand attracts some of the worlds biggest idiots, this people come here and treat thai people like **** just because they most often get away with it. This idiots give falangs a bad rep offcourse.

Falangs are therefore sadly idiots in a thai persons mind until proven otherweis, this is just natural and common sense.

I would myselfe probably have beaten up this idiots every ****ing day if I would have been born and raised here. I almost feel like doing it even now when I am not born here. When I see a falang beat up a thai girl tho, I cant help myselfe, they get there ass kicked.

A thai girl has her hole life heard about all the **** falangs come up with here in Thailand. Offcourse she knows it is a BIG possibility that also you are a scum when she meets you at a club for the first time. It does not matter how good loking, funny or good at dancing you think you are.

Offcouse everything is POSSIBLE, and once in 100 times maybe you could run into a girl that would do it for one reason or another. But you guys who I am adressing this post to, argue that you can do this on will if you just work that girl good, and to you I just say WAKE UP for **** sake.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

those rates probably aren't even steep enough in high season. I know that the summer breeeze is regularly booked solid for large stretches of time in the high season, and they should probably be charging a little more then. It's rarely more than 25% occupancy in low season, and there's a correct balancing formula for that as well, but i have no idea if they are doing that right or not.

anyway, I always recommend Summer Breeze. the sexpat's common wisdom is to stay at C&N, but the internet is miserable there.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Just remember, a thai girl going to the hotel with you for a onenightstand saying she is not a prostitute does not automaticely mean she is not. It does not either mean that she is not looking for a long term relationship with a falang that can give her a better life.

Sorry about my nagging about the "non working girl" issue I am done now and will not adress this issure no more.

Yea, I usally lie about having friends that has been living in Thailand for 20 years. Wanna make a prop bet? He is here right now.

It is too many internet nerds in the lower 20s here that believes they know it all even tho they have not the life experience to back it up, are you one of them? Just because you just have discovered Thailand and probably feels very cool about it does not mean that others have not discovered Thailand long time before you did.

You accusing me to lie about a simple things as this makes me wonder.

How the hell can you even come up with something that ridiculous?

Ha, ha MY perspective messed up!? I am 37 years old and have a life experience that most of you guys NEVER will get.

I know people who has lived here for 20 years, I was here first time myselfe maybe 12 years ago, hell yea, I probably know more about Thailand than you.

Can you please tell me how experience can mess up perspective? You really think that a first time traveller or maybe you if you just been here a year or something would have a better clue of what is going on in this country that people who has been here 5-20 years?

Tell me little bit about your life experience and Thailand experience to make you say that your perspective about Thailand is more correct than mine?

How many years have you lived here? What have you done here so far? Also please tell me in what way my perspective are messed up?

What? Please explain further I really dont understand. What is dirty expats and what makes me one?

For me one of the worst thing about thailand is all the idiots coming here and all of a sudden believes they are all that, just because the thai people treat them like they do.

This pathetic figures often was losers and nobodys in there home country and when they get the attention they get in Thailand they start to believe they are cool for real, and that they know it all.
