Re: .

I'm in Laos but make a monthly visa run to Thailand. The countries are very similar but I find Laos better in almost all respects. I would suggest spending at least a couple days in the country. If you have any questions you can PM me or even better, bump my Laos thread.

Obviously send assault squad in through lower balcony door--you're protected against fire from all upper windows and upper balcony. Sniper team can neutralize exposed targets on upper level.

Serious question. What made you decide to live in Laos rather than a developed country?

Bring some food (preferably chicken) and I probably wont even notice the guns.
Seriously we're sitting ducks here. Roger couldn't even bring home 4 pizzas without losing 2 of them in a brawl against the pack of mad dogs patrolling the muddy road outside our house!

FBP is his 2p2 nick.
I txted him about what happened at Safari. Apparently he has no recollection of the whole incident. He was kinda (very) drunk too...

ask me anything about living in Laos
Vientiane at least is as developed as most of Thailand. There's every kind of ethnic restaurant, I can order groceries from the internet and have them delivered to my door, there's a modern shopping mall, etc.

Re: .

Bangkok is probably not the best place to learn to ride a motorbike. Make sure you get an automatic; you'll have enough to worry about while driving without having to pay attention to switching gears.

My friend has a proper motorcycle but it's not very useful in the city and he's trying to sell it. It's not nearly as maneuverable as a motorbike and is generally a pain if you aren't traveling long distances on highways.

Re: .

alright expats help me out please.

trying to decide on a take the gf away type vacation. preferable somewhere chilled and nice beach in the day then nightlife on the night. for example Ko Samui staying on the chilled side then going to Chaweng on the night would be ideal but i don't want to do Samui again.

so options i have come up with so far are either Ko Chang or Krabi then phi phi. Chang seems to be winning out of those as from travelfish it seems krabi has no nightlife and phi phi is going to suck with the amount of tourists around christmas time.

so, which do you guys think is better and any improvements on this? also visited and don't want to revisit ko tao, ko pang yang, pattaya, phuket.

thank you.

Check out my Bangkok bike. VFR 750 with MotoGP body kit. I had it for a couple months then sold it. It was fun but pretty quickly it wore off and it was just impractical for the city. Sounded killer though.
