why do you need some service to get a tourist visa for you?

where are you from / where are you now?

just contact that nearest thai embassy and find out (website/phone/email) what they need for a tourist visa(usually it's just your passport, some copies and pictures and maybe money if the free visa period is not in effect) and how many entries are willing to issue

most western countries issue triple entry tourist visas with no hassle. save your money and forget any "visa services"

I've been to it.

It's basically a giant rave on Haad Rin beach in Koh Pahngan that happens once a month and goes all night and day. How much you will enjoy it depends on how much you like raves in general.

It's very popular with European and British backpackers, there's usually a fair few fights/arrests/etc the standard stuff you get when you put 5000 drunk/stoned people in the same place. Don't wear a football shirt.

Actually now that you mention it I willl probably be going to one in a month's time because i've got a Thai virgin friend coming over who wants to go. So yay I guess?

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

There's Dr.Chusak in Kata. Its next to frog bar about halfway down the road that goes from the gas station T-section to Nightbazaar/beach->Karon T-section.

The one near Ron's house is on Chaofa east on the right hand side about 200-300meters after the Purple Bank T-section redlights. I dont have the address but its probably 5kms from Chalong circle? if you reach the T-section with the big king symbol youve gone a bit too far.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Anyone wanna post some pics of some hot thai girls that they actually know/have met? Preferably a range of people 6/10 - 9/10...just wanna get an idea of what people look like.

Are there many communication problems? Do people speak any english?

Also, are there many hot backpacker girls that come to thailand?

Also, how is it for vegetarians out there?

thx for any reply

SRSLY, what could ever be hotter than a vegan, white, backpacker chick with dreadlocks, hairy pits, and a so well developed notion of the politics that are "right" for the world?

You should probably hit up Khao San Rd in BKK.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Does anyone know is there any way to make deposits from moneybookers to gambling sites while in Thailand. Using proxy or VPN seems to autolock mb account, and having someone else doing deposits for me from another country is not an option.

If there isn't a way round this, am I able to make deposits with Paypal?

Yes I know that cashing out is not a problem, but I need to get money to another network, so depositing method is what I need to find out.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

fk those down the soi clinics imo. those doctors may have not even finished med school or just covered enough ground to be able to set up a clinic. just go to the bangkok phuket hospital if you need to get something checked out here. it's dirt cheap compared to western health care, plus your insurance will likely cover it anyway, and its one of the best hospitals in the country.

just use your normal deposit options through a familymember/friends computer over teamviewer.

you can also try and talk neteller into setting up your account so it will work in thailand. worked for me.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

i've dropped by those clinics and gotten what i thought was very fine health care from a doctor that spoke good english, was an educated general health practitioneer, and most importantly was willing to listen to all my erroneous internet diagnosis bull**** and explain to me what i got right, and why i was wrong.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

well the doctor i saw (dr thati or something at chalong circle) prescribed me cortisone eyedrops for my conjunctivitis which was TOTALLY the wrong treatment for my condition. the eyedoctor at the hospital was glad i had only been using it for two days as it could lead to glaucoma and eventually to permanent damage to the optic nerve.
i mean i obv have a small samplesize, but to mistreat an illness that is so common in thailand is pretty terribad imo. so im just giving up on those clinics altogether. bangkok hospital is the nuts, super cheap, and they gave me a stash of valium. :-----------DDD
