The bike shop on RCA has some nice stuff too. I forget what it is called. They do track days every week too. Fast french guys on superbikes. They do good service. I got some tires from them at a great deal.

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.
As a girl, I have to vote for Costa Lanta on Ko Lanta. It's one of the few areas I have yet to visit and the hotel is sexy and private as hell. Pricey, though, and I'm unsure of the nightlife factor. But who needs bars when there is wine and hammocks? (imo.)

Also, how about an upscale resort in Chiang Mai? Or Koh Lipe/Adang (very different accommodation options, however) Or a cheap flight to Singapore + nice hotel? There are a lot of possibilities here. Exciting!

As a man, I make fun of you because you suggest a place you don't even know.
But ok it's a pretty nice place.

There is no nightlife on koh Lanta and basically nothing to do ( stay 3 days max I'd say ).

Koh Chang is probably my favorite island, quite beautiful and you can stay there a week without getting bored to death.

If the girl is worth it, the four seasons chiang mai is perfect IMO.

Unless you find a VPN from the country your neteller account is based in, it's stil INSTABAN.

Oh yea, I forgot I found my bike for sale on this site:

Maybe that will help some of you out there if you are looking for used scooters or whatevers. Gl

Buy the cheapest phone you can, should be about $45. If you own a compatible phone, just buy a Thai sim card.

You get 30 day stamp at the airport immo desk. Depending upon their mood, they my ask for your return ticket and a hotel destination. Return tic should be easy (since you plan on leaving) and for a hotel you can just use a name (say Grand President, BKK). But yeah, you're deffo fine unde 30 days.

anyone in bkk up for getting a drink tonight?

i arrived yesterday. i'm staying at a friend's house for now but it's not really close to any bars/clubs or the skytrain. i have no idea why he would want to stay way out here.
if its ski its because hes a shortstacking friendless idiot..
other than that it might be the price

Re: .

If we don't make it out to Koh Pha ngan a week ahead of time should we just not go out there? I know you need to be out there a week ahead of time to be able to get a place to stay. If we don't make it out there should be just skip going and head somewhere else. Or is the FMP something you definitely would not miss?

Most US plugs work just fine. I reccomend picking up a power strip anywayz (for like $3) just to be sure though. They are widely available in supermarkets etc.
