Re: .

Great thread guys. I'm looking to move out to Bangkok by the start of January. Can anyone recommend any nice 1 bedroom apartments? My rent budget is about 30k baht/month.

manylevels, I'm pretty sure that hardly any casinos in macau offer poker (apart from chinese poker and the like), so if you're going there looking for some live action, it may not be easy to find

housebythepond.com is great but right now they have construsction on their street of their seceond building so its very noisy.
i recomand living here if u dont. or live uin the cheaper buiolding where its SICK calm(japenese calm)
intenret is great.
theres no poker in bangkok but me and some 2+2r's are ready to play some 150/300 or under in baht.

You can get a sweet suite for that. Check out Centre Point Serviced apartments. I couldn't get past all the hotel brokers, but google it and ye shall find. There are better recommendations, but I just can't think of them right now...I'll back to you on that.

There is an online speed dating party at my bar this saturday (cheezy, but lots of single chicks).

There are plenty of home games in Bangkok...just don't get invited to them by shady German dudes on the internet. Trust me...

The Riverside Hotel is Chiang Mai does the job, though I've only been to Chiang Mai a couple of times. It's centrally located, price is affordable, and its uh...by the river.

I know Bangkok a lot better, so whats your price range?

Instead of another city, I would go to one/some of the islands. Phuket, Krabi, Samui are all nice, especially over the next few months.

sukhumvit ( nightlife, a lot of everything and more... ), silom ( city center, lots of stuff to do ) or sathorn ( big expensive hotels and some of the best restaurants, also next to the center )
The rest is just not good enough.

I live by the Lao border (Vientiane is 15km away) and I've never heard of anyone getting malaria or of this being a serious concern. Dengue fever is a possibility but your chances of catching it are very low and it is rarely fatal.

Re: .

So hey, I went through the past 1000 posts or something and compiled a list of 2+2ers who are currently in Thailand. Please correct me if I'm wrong:

Degen
farang0
KKF
ofdabeat
WhoIam - Thailand/Laos?
ofdabeat
NewTeaBag
cookie
beats
Wally Balls
shinigami

If my month goes well I think I might head there in December or so. If I do, I think I'd also want to visit other places in Asia while I'm in the area:

Korea (where I'm from)
Japan
somewhere in China
somewhere in India
Singapore
Philippines
Maybe Indonesia?

Is it easy to fly in and out of Thailand? Anyone have any recommendations on where I should go and what I should see?

Re: .

I'm in Bangkok also until next summer. Travel to the nearby countries is easy and cheap, especially with Air Asia. A round trip to Singapore from Bangkok cost me 170 $ and it can be cheaper. I went to the Philippines and didnt liked it a lot. Its a bit too much poor, its really worse than thailand, outside of makati wich is the rich part of manila. Also, much of the girls tend to be fat wich is kind of weird in asia. I heard theres good beach on baracay and some other places but i didnt go.

Singapore is like the ''perfect city''. Its very clean everywhere with a lot of tree and beautiful buildings. The crime rate is very low. The traffic is good, theres a good nightlife also, but its very expensive. You cant find a decent hotel under 100 $ us a night, and most of them are 150 and up. A beer in a good bar cost about 10 $ us, etc

All that said, it lack the energy and sense of freedom that I like in Thailand.

The area around Vientiane shouldnt be bad, but for instance if you stay close to the cambodian border etc you might be at risk, but its just what I remember from the doctor before I went here... But in the end the guy who asked should ask his doctor IMO...
