    Why So Expensive To Fly From Frankfurt

    You may well find that your dates clash with school holidays (in Germany) with demand outstripping supply airlines are alive to maximising their margin.

    HIV etc Testing

    Be that as it may but. We’re not talking about a full blown medical procedure, merely a screening for HIV along with testing for all the usual STD natsies, think I paid approximately 1200 Baht. I for one was very impressed and shall certainly use them again.

    HIV etc Testing

    Few years ago, a Doctor at Pattaya International Hospital on Soi 4 told me not to rely on blood test results from the various small clinics in Pattaya. For complete peace of mind, use a hospital.
  4. Twice now I’ve sat down at Hideaway for something from the grill with a beer.......truly excellent .

    EVA Air

    Yes frequently, and as you’d expect they do issue a Fast Track Pass to all passengers travelling within this superb facility ready for a swift entry into Bangkok. And very handily back into LHR. We always seem to have lengthy queues in T2 these days.

    Emirates fake oasis

    I’m inclined to think there’s a bit more to this story. The news piece said, she had a heated exchange with an immigration official after being informed entry was declined with her visa now expired, this rather puzzles me. Brits do not need a visa to enter Dubai as a tourist, so presumably the women (a dentist) was planning to work? The article took my interest because I’ve probaly spent around 60 days in Dubai over the years and been intoxicated on about 55 of them, even arrived a few times following a skinful on the plane......happily I’ve never had reason to enter dialogue with immigration officers.

    Favourite place to rent a bike

    Opposite Opey de Place Hotel on Soi Lengkee, a Thai fella going by the name of Manna. A first class, straight up individual who I’ve known and dealt with for 20 years. He’ll strike a fair deal and has friends in the right places if problems arise while you’re on the bike. Manna is a motorbike mechanic by trade, years ago worked in the Nordic countries while serving his time.

    Germany To Bangkok

    I thought one or both of the Taiwan Airlines (Eva Air or China Airlines) operate direct Flights FRA-BKK

    British Airways V Thai Airways..

    EVA every time for me out of LHR to BKK, their biz class service is usually much more affordable than the other two, or with constraints on budget EVA Premium Economy (called Elite) is pretty good as well, usually around £900.00. But as a straight match Thai v BA economy class, I’d advise Thai on their A380 service in the upstairs cabin.

    taxi to pattaya from bkk updates ?

    Yes, probably....first time I’ve seen that initialism for Bangkok’s second airport.About as pointless as describing Baby Boom as The Boom however, Dynasty Inn Grande as The DIG does have some credibility

    New Plaza Fish N Chips

    Sometimes I use the walking route via New Plaza on the night march between Soi Buakaow & Soi 7/8. Goodness me drink prices are competitive, little wonder it’s a popular area for the hard core drinkers
