  1. Hi guys Anyone got experience or advice on Jakarta? John
  2. There are a few different options on the menu, this was just my preferred method. They will cook it exactly as you want it, rare, medium etc The roast pork is also very good JR
  3. Left hotel at 10:30 am on a Friday morning. Meter taxi to airport was 400 THB including tolls. The previous Friday coming from the Airport to the hotel in Sukhumvit at 2pm was exactly the same. JR
  4. The Royal Oak on Sukhumvit 33-1 serves and excellent steak, i went for the cook it yourself on the hotplate option absolutely superb :-)
  5. Was introduced to the Robin Hood on Sukhumvit Soi 33 by one of my collegues. Excellent breakfast, the large breakfast consists of egg (Fried, Scrambled etc) Toast, Bacon, Sausages, Black Pudding Beans, Fried Kidneys, Toast, Hash Browns and is excellent value for money. Also build your own from the above options :-) Went back most mornings JR
  6. Boarding flight to BKK

  7. Hi Guys, I am thinking of getting a new Tattoo done. Has anyone had one done in BKK? What's the hygiene standards, do they use autoclaves to sterilize their needles? Comments and feedback appreciated. JR
  8. 1,500 for 50 Kamagra Jelly sachets is the same in Pattaya. Nice to know where I can buy them in BKK as will need some more soon. JR
  9. Westin Grande in Sukumvitt is definitely girl friendly, no joiner fee, no id check unless you want to do it. Stayed there many times and never had a problem. Also ATM there as well just in case you run short or go for overtime lol JR
  10. Flights booked and hotel booked for November :-)

  11. I have been using this hotel when Staying in Pattaya, much quieter than main Pattaya. Cheap, clean, friendly staff, small private pool to relax in 5 minutes from Jomtien beach. Girl friendly and will ask for ID unless you tell them not to. Balcony if requested in superior rooms, not great view I must admit, but then most of us not there for the view. Breakfast is optional. Laundry place across the road :-) JR
  12. Do I have to start a new topic to insert a pic?
  13. Been to many different Hooters, mostly in the US and the food in them is not superior quality, but after all it is a fast food place. The wings I found to be very good, and the one burger I had was also good. Will try the one in Bangkok in November. I collect the shot glasses, so its a souvenir. JR
  14. Where can I buy a Rabbit card for the BTS, can I get it at any station? Or are there specific ones? JR
  15. Is this a total of 1 bottle or can you have 1 in checked baggage and 1 from duty free? I will be heading back to Malaysia after my week in BKK and usually bring a bottle with me in my checked baggage. JR
  16. Thanks for this guys, usually my company has a driver assigned to whoever is coming into town. This time is vacation time so I will be using the public transport system more often. JR
  17. Am going to be staying at the Holiday Inn on Sukhumvitt 22. Anybody stayed there? Girl friendly? JR
  18. Westin Grand is where my company usually put us up :-) Excellent rooms, nice beds and bedding. View not bad my usual room looks at the entrance to Soi Cowboy. Food is good, buffet style breakfast with Asian and Western food. Girl friendly, no ID requests. Live singers in the bar area, beer a bit more expensive but not extortionately so. Ladyboy freelancers usually outside on the steps up to the hotel, but no real hassle from them. This next trip is vacation time and not work so am staying at the Holiday Inn on Sukumvitt 22 so will let you all know what its like. JR
  19. Thanks for this guys. I don't usually have time for sightseeing when I am in BKK, only had a few hours in the past to go around. This November I have a week so am looking forward to a nice visit. JR
  20. I normally leave my good watch, passport, main wallet and laptop in my room safe along with my UK mobile & IPad etc. I always carry a second wallet with me it has some cash and one atm card that only has a couple of hundred pounds on it..i can top it up online. And my Malaysian photo ID and after reading a few posts will do a copy of my passport as well. If you wear trainers or shoes with socks then you can always put you big bills in there, most pick pockets wont stoop that low :-). If you are sensible and keep your head switched you will be fine, pissed well we all know how the decision making goes then. JR
  21. Hi Guys, Do many of the golf clubs have rental sets? Are the courses busy through the week, and would I be able to play with others just turning up or is that not a done thing here? Are buggies included in cost of round? Are caddies included and how much do you tip them? Thanks in advance for any replies. John
