  1. HOW TO TELL IF YOU'RE STILL A FARANG http://www.bangkokpo...-still-a-farang Published: 28/11/2012 at 12:00 AM Newspaper section: News As a Thai who has spent some time abroad I consider myself able to evaluate whether a farang, (I use this term endearingly) has been properly assimilated into Thai society. So I thought it might be useful to my many farang friends and readers to devise a simple test to help guide farang who may be wondering whether they have indeed successfully made the seamless transition into becoming a Thai. Here is my simple test. - You're a fa

While the perception of international relationships here in some Western eyes may be of older, overweight, oversexed tour
  3. Ok, lazy me, did a little internet search and it looks like Ratchada is a good stretch up the MRT line towards Bang Sue. Hmmmmm. Oh well, maybe this will be a good experience. Sometimes I do feel like Nana is a bit too in-my-face. That's one reason I prefer BKK over Pattaya, which is REALLY in your face. I will report on my experience. Wheels down on 29-December... B)
  4. So I am chatting with my mainstream TGF/buddy on MSN, and tell her I want to go to RCA and Ratchada on my next trip. Well, she thought I meant *stay* in Ratchada, so now she has her TAT friend trying to find me a hotel there! I can't let them lose face...so it looks like I will be staying in Ratchada! Is it a fun area to stay in? I do like the "real Thailand" experience. Is it convenient to Sukhumvit? Cowboy? I gotta go to those places of course!!
  5. I didn't notice that was hyperlinked...I thought he was just emphasizing that he got a good deal (lol).
  6. I have just the place for you. On my last trip I spent a few hours scouting out places around Sukumvit. I found this nice guest house for 700 baht per night off Sukhumvit Soi 6. Perfect for a long term stay. It is in a really quiet area (rare for downtown BKK) and is clean and secure. Here is the contact info: Orchid Place, 17/4 Soi Sukhumvit 6, [email protected] I have no financial interest in the place, it just impressed me and seems good for a long-term stay. If you have bigger budget, then ignore that and stay at one of the nicer hotels around Sukhumvit Road...plenty
  7. I knew some basic phrases through the Pimsleur CDs. They start each lesson by conversing in Thai on the material from the prior lesson. After a while they will converse only in Thai, even the small talk before and after the lessons! Try to get Sapan to teach you. She didn't teach me, but she is cuter than the older ladies who taught me! :P Sapan is actually older than you might think...here is a pic. She has a very lively personality as well.
  8. I just posted a customer review of Baan Phassaa Thai (Thai Language House) in the Learning Thai subforum.
  9. Last month I took the one-on-one short course at Baan Phassaa Thai (Thai Language House) on Sukhumvit Soi 6. It is located in a mid-rise building next to the Dynasty Inn Grande. The short course is 15 hours and costs 5,850 Baht. The little textbook is an additional 100 Baht. The short course is phonetics (Romanized)...no Thai alphabet or writing. It was a good course, and like anything else, you get out what you put in. The format is this: you sit across from the instructor and work on vocabulary, pronunciations and phrases. They converse with you in Thai as well. They will also teac
  10. I am trying to decide whether to bring my own scuba gear for a Similans diving trip. It won't cost me anything to bring it over from America, but I don't want to lug it around from place to place! So I could: (1) Store it at BKK airport for a fee; (2) Store it at a BKK hotel that I would check in and out of (hopefully they would not charge me to store it); or (3) Ship it from BKK to the dive shop in Khao Lak. Any advice? re: number (3), can anyone recommend a shipping service? Thanks!
  11. Please post your thoughts and experiences with Bangkok's Thai Lanuguage schools for farang. Knowledge is power. Thanks! Edit: I just noticed there is a Learning Thai section on the forum...perhaps this should be moved there.
