    Xanax

    Xanax ( Alprazolam ) is available. There are lots of small independent pharmacies around town.... some in rather obscure locations.... I was offered blisterpack for 300B/10 or loose and in bulk, same pill for 200B/ 10. They have them prepackaged in zip bags of 10-20-40 .
  2. To actually answer the OP..... Yes 3 times ORD-PEK-BKK all in Business. Used to be an excellent value with the long leg in a 787. Seating was just Ok in 2-2-2- configuration , but as long as you were able to get center , each seat had aisle access. Unfortunately for pricing , they converted to much more user friendly 1-2-1 seating and thus the price increase . No issues transiting through PEK since they use terminal 2 ( for international ).... in fact several times I had to wait for security to arrive and Hainan has an escort/guide waiting for you as you disembark with a name card. They also have a fairly new lounge with all the amenities including shower rooms , day beds , decent food and plenty of space. They offered me a hotel and did it once. Crowne Plaza...very nice.... you get a transit Visa , so no problem there. Had a late departure one time from ORD , on arrival in PEK had a rep with a hand written note for me to go directly to baggage services in BKK since my luggage would not make the flight. Then the rep ran ahead to the gate to hold the flight for me.... I was indeed the last person to board.
  3. The former owner , Scott, was a great guy , but became a hardcore alcoholic before he died . He would sit and drink black sambuca with beer backs until he could no longer walk, and the girls would than put him in a taxi. Gai has since taken over the day to day operation...been a few years.... she is a sweetheart , as are all the girls on staff. A very friendly environment , especially for Americans, and a good place to watch US sports early in the morning. ( 12 hour time difference ) Breakfast is cooked to order and free refills on the coffee..... Also good wings and a killer grilled chicken breast with bacon and cheese sandwich. Always a few massage girls right outside by the alleyway that runs next to the bar.
  4. Had to this twice while in Thailand..... no problem getting a replacement card sent to my hotel.... took 3-5 business days to be shipped from the US
  5. How revolting..... I couldn't get past the smell and I consider myself an adventurous eater.
  6. I paid 1200B from Nana to Pattaya on Monday using Meow..... good driver...not crazy.... nice newer Camry...very comfortable ride.
  7. I have flown Air China , China Southern , and Hainan... all with transit in China ... security checks can be slow...especially in Beijing/PEK.... but don't believe all the horror stories, especially if you are flying Bizz Class. Same with your fellow passengers..... I have looked at Xiamen , their reviews are less than stellar , then again Air China has bad reviews also , and I have recently booked again on them. Any airline can suck...bad weather, delays, crying baby , guy hacking up a lung next to you...... roll the dice..... This is air travel in the 21st century. This is a good site and most reviews are verified.... www.airlinequality.com/review-pages/a-z-airline-reviews/
  8. In recent years I have flown Air China , China Southern , and Hainan ..... all from either JFK or ORD. I would rate Hainan far above the other 2, but since they have refitted their 787 with 1-2-1 seating in Bizz, they also raised their prices by US$1000 RT. Not worth it for me, I book early and get one of the two center aisle seats with row access and no one having to climb over me. China Southern was fine, but Guangzhau is infamous for weather delays and I almost missed my connection . Not that PEK ( Beijing ) is any better , but for a RT Business class ticket , no one comes with $ 1500 of Air China's price.
  9. I took Air China Bizz in May , JFK-PEK-MNL I have no complaints , transit through PEK can take a while..... the planes were fine, good service, big lounge at PEK with good selection of food and drinks. Doing it again end of September , no other airline even comes close to the price.
  10. I agree....don't get involved in other peoples business..... period...never ends well..... But I agree , it sounds like a shakedown of sorts.
  11. There is no fresh air in Beijing.....really..... The airport is huge , to walk from T2 to T1 can take 20 minutes....
  12. In Pattaya , I like Fire and Stone on Pattaya Klang.... their dough is very good. Also New York Pizza House on Sai 3 for delivery.... I never order pasta in a restaurant because it is simply too easy to make it myself , usually better than the restaurants anyway. I understand a lot of people don't know how to cook , but that's fine...
  13. As previously mentioned, preferences on pizza is much like beer, drink and girls.... they vary widely... BUT..... that photo in the OP looks like crap. Is that the pepperoni and hot dog special ? akkkkk
  14. These days you should have decent WIFI at your hotel/condo. Most bars and restaurants also have WIFI , just ask..... if you have a modern Android phone , it will remember these passwords and connect you when you are in range...... why would you need a huge amount of data ? Buy a package for 300 B and throw a 100B on for phone calls , which I use very little since LINE is free..... this usually lasts me a month as long as I don't make international calls.
  15. If you have remaining credit on your SIM , it should work as applied to data once reactivated ... I usually buy a package for data and supplement a little for SMS and calls which I use very little (LINE primarily ) . The data package has an expiration on it ...usually 7-14-30 days , but any phone credit remains valid.
