whats the best thing to do for phones if going for 2 1/2 weeks?
Buy the cheapest phone you can, should be about $45. If you own a compatible phone, just buy a Thai sim card.
I unlocked my phone from my carrier and am using a thai simcard. It works with any simcard now.(works for most of EU i guess) else buy a used shitphone for 700-1000b

Re: .

So Bones and I are coming to Thailand Jan 27th through Feb 29th next year.

To do list:

-Breakfastsupperclub
-Check out other various clubs
-kick ass Seasfood place I saw on TV
-Have orgy w/ various thai hookers
-scuba diving

Other then that I'd love to hear other suggestions. Money is not an issue at all. I literally want to have the time of my life.

Next question, am I correct to assume that it shouldn't be an issue finding a place that is broadcasting the superbowl right?

Next question, we have a 14 hour layover in south Korea. Can we just leave the airport, or do we need to get a visa? I feel like this a noob question, but I've never been over seas before.

Next question, it isn't that big of a deal to get a 30day visa at the airport is it? Would I just be better off going to DC and visiting the thai counsalette?

I think that about covers all my questions/comments. Look forward to seeing whomever is around then.

It's bed supperclub, worth dining and wining there but the club itself is meh at best, ( my farts-smell good crowd. ). The thai nightclubs ( RCA, Thong Lo, Ekkamai ect... are just way better )

-Check out other various clubs : ok then

-kick ass Seasfood place I saw on TV : Is it the "if it can swim we have it" one? Kickass indeed and i'm not really into seafood.

-Have orgy w/ various thai hookers : OBV

-scuba diving

Way too much stuff to do. Once in the city all your plans will change anyway.

Right

Next question, we have a 14 hour layover in south Korea. Can we just leave the airport, or do we need to get a visa? I feel like this a noob question, but I've never been over seas before.

if you need a visa to visit south korea, you'll need one to leave the airport

Next question, it isn't that big of a deal to get a 30day visa at the airport is it? Would I just be better off going to DC and visiting the thai counsalette?

Not a big deal at all.

Sure.

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?
I dunno. It's a nice place, but I wouldn't stay anywhere near Haad Rin or the party zone, it's a [censored] dump afterwards for a few days.

The times I went I arrived two or three days early and it was still tough to find even a halfway decent guesthouse on the north coast. I might almost suggest staying on Samui (ugh?) and taking a speedboat over. Of course, the last time I was at a FMP was four years ago.

If you like parties, hippies, and loud music that mixes horrible on a trash littered beach, it's your thing. If I ever went again I think I'd just arrive for the sunrise and to watch all the goofy yobs piss in the ocean and get arrested.

But that's just me.

Suggestion: Get your degenerate expat friends together and make a reservation and pig out at a Thanksgiving buffet like the Marriott on sukumvit or other hotel. I think the Westin has a good one too.

Because this has been asked and answered at least three times. If the adapter can handle the different voltage, then yes, you can use your devices. If not, no.

Sorry for the noob question. I'm planning to fly from London to Thailand in late Jan, early Feb sometime, but I'm not sure when I want to fly back. Can I get a ticket with a changeable return journey date? Will it cost significantly more?

probably a stupid question, but stuff here plugs in there right? i know when i went to europe i couldn't plug anything in. that's not the same in thailand is it? like if i want to charge battery packs, etc....
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.
