  1. Everything was looking good in LOS in March '21, but as April '21 roared around it started to look dicey. There's no firm answers on whether October '21 will be worth it at this point. Like the weather, the predictions get clearer the closer you are to the forecast date. And, we still don't know if Phuket means fully open over the island, or just in certain tourist venues.
  2. Are you flying directly into Phuket, or arriving in Bangkok and then taking a flight to Phuket? Also, I don't think we know if arrival means unlimited access to Phuket, or only specified tourist areas.
  3. Actions like this will turn tourists off. If you can't give a negative review, then how can you trust any reviews about Thailand? I can't believe they actually jailed him, but time will tell if he serves any time. This really makes LOS look bad imo ...
  4. It was just one lady identified and she's back in China now from what I've heard. You'd have more worries about an elephant grabbing your balls with his trunk than contacting that flu variant at this point.
  5. I've been there several times, never any problems.
  6. Where do they get this information from? I barely see the Chinese spending anything except for shopping. Are they buying that much at the malls? https://thethaiger.com/news/opinion/why-the-chinese-are-infinitely-more-important-than-western-tourists-to-thailand "The Chinese now account for 57.48% of all tourists in Thailand and what makes this even more staggering is only 8.7% currently have passports (120 million)." "The Chinese expenditure into Thailand is US$15,342,000,000 each year, which is more than any other nation. The average spend per day for a Chinese tourist in Thailand is US$192 – which is 53% more than the average Europeans US$125 daily spend."
  7. https://www.nationthailand.com/news/30374465 "Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob Wednesday gave the green light to a package of fare increase for taxis, including distance rates, airport surcharges and the rate while not moving in traffic."
  8. Interesting. Life is all about the experiences though.
  9. Anyone been to Gaggan's? Is this venue good for Western palates? After you arrive do they refund you the $200 reservation fee or apply it to your bill?
  10. don't bring any THB with you, get it once you get into the country. They never check your currency coming in if you are a regular US tourist.
  11. Just did Armani tailors on the corner of Sukhumvit and Soi 8. 4x slacks for 1,500 each. These had the rubber stops on the sides, 6x loops, front/back lining, fitting sessions, etc. Feel free to use this as your starting point for negotiations with them, you may be able to get them down some more.
  12. Reading the Bangkok Post they have an article that the departures bridge is out and that it takes an extra 3-hours to get there now. Any first-hand experience on this? https://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general/1356387/don-mueang-users-warned-of-traffic-congestion
  13. If I had to do it I'd have to be near a Skytrain station. Once I got tired of one area I could shuttle myself off to any other area of the city for the day, or night.
