    I wouldn't bet on this if I were you. The military junta in Pattaya has already cleaned out Walking Street of all street vendors and is working to do so in the rest of the city to the detriment of natives and tourists alike. Street food will now be segregated into ghettos designated by the goons.

    Street food not going anywhere

    Commerce to make Thailand "Paradise of Street Food".

    Bangkok: -- The Ministry of Commerce plans to make Thailand as a "Paradise of Street Food" after the country was named for having the best street food in the world for the second consecutive year this year.

    Commerce Minister Apiradi Tantraporn said the promotion of quality and clean street food would be done through its current "Noo Nich" project which emphasised on "delicious food, good quality, clean and cheap price. ".

    The project is now implemented in Bangkok and is expanding to the provinces, she said.

    The project is to recommend eateries offering good-quality and clean food at reasonable prices, so local people and travelers can have more restaurant options when they come to Thailand, she said.

    In addition, the ministry has collaborated with the Office of SMEs Promotion to provide loans for people who want to start a "food truck" business so as to promote quality, clean and cheap price street food in the capital.

    On a tangent, so moved to general Thread.

    For touristy tours from Bangkok, I don't recommend the Floating Market, Rose Garden, etc. Roses are crap in Thailand due to wrong climate. I thought they were just touristy bull shit, waste of time and money. There are better things. E. g. Crocodile farm and Ancient City in Samut Prakarn is much more entertaining. Jim Thompson's House is okay A few good temples (Emerald, Pho, Saket, Traimit, Arun). The Siam Niramit show is good. Even Wax museum was okay Sam Pran zoo okay Suan Pakaat historical house is good. Be careful with tour choices far distance from Bangkok.

    I also thought Bridge on the River Kwai (actually sounds like Kwair almost Queer LOL) and Death Railway tours are pretty much bullshit. Nothing to see except tombstones and war photos. Go see nature like Erawan falls in Kanchanaburi is much better. Just my opinions.

    I had to do the bullshit tours but comment to save others from wasting their time.

    Thanks mate

    Thanks for feedback mate, one thing I am sure of is that Germans in general tend to be rude. On my vacation itself will surely spend the first 2 nights in downtown Bangkok, my favorite spots to watch the world go by in one of Hillaries bars. Like to stroll around in the upper Sukhumvit as well, most probably end in Soi Cowboy but last I was there 2 years ago prices rocketed up big time especially in spots like Bacara. Next to follow is a 2 week either Hua-Hin or Pattaya, most of all I prefer KOh Samui but I don't like taking any internal flights during my short trip.

Americans seem very polite but just loud when excited. Just making wild generalisations based on a lot of experience. You will hardly meet an American on this flight.

    The 2nd worst type of passengers are young children, so I try to take very late at night flights to reduce chances of being near screaming babies slightly. The worst type of passengers for me are those that stink of body odours. No more than normal on Lufthansa. Don't run into that problem very often at all. Worst occasion for me was a flight from Chiang Mai, but hostess moved me to a better seat far away from the problem.

    Overall Lufthansa is pretty much okay And staff are good, but sometimes inadvisable in peak season (December was most difficult) if you want to be able to change ticket to fly some other day. All the Germans on holiday seem to try to fly Lufthansa. So some flights can be very full. If you are not accustomed to long flights, something to help make you drowsy and relaxed can be useful.

    General info required

    It's been about 3 years since I last visited BKK, any info regarding CIS, good clubs, and if the bkk scene has changed in any way, also any TIPS on mongering would be appreciated. I have been searching on the site, but not picking up much. Has BKK died down a bit.

    I do like the CIS more, but not the crowd from Grace area, used to visit CM2, before, heard its closed down.

    IS MIXX, BKK still the same, has anything changed, any info and help would be appreciated. Current prices, LT, ST has the quality of the woman dropped.

    Thanks.

    China Air Booked Solid

Only downside is the seats are over the wing so if you like to look out the windows, your view will either be totally blocked or mostly blocked. I usually sit in the middle aisle seat (slight odds you won't have anyone sitting next to you there, with 100% odds of having someone next to you in the window sides) for the LAX / TPI portion of the trip, then switch to a window seat with a view for the 4 HR flight between BKK and TPI. The electrical boxes at the bottom of the seats in front of you can mess with leg room a bit, but better than being stuck in cattle class. After my next trip over, my mileage should be such that I can get a free upgrade to First Class next time. I have no experience with other airlines, so I have no comparisons.

    And as was said, the flight attendants are generally young and attractive, and mostly Chinese, with EVA. I have never tried engaging one in conversation, but while friendly, they seem to be professional so would be a little surprised if they will go home with you. Regardless, I am too old and not rich enough to be of any interest to them.
    Because of a promo at China Air of $589.00 RT LOS Angeles / BKK. I couldn't get a seat on the Taipei / BKK leg. Sold out full not even a waitlist. I can get to Taipei from Honolulu, so my lady at China Air Honolulu booked me to HCMC, and I got a connection on Jet star from HCMC to BKK a couple of hours later. She said that they even put a Jumbo 747 on the Taipei BKK route and it filled up fast. Anyway I'll be there on Wednesday and visit the BIG products expo to write off the trip. Timing is everything.

    FL, use a site like Seat Guru before you book your seat. Look up the airline and the type and version of plane for your flight. Tells you things like where those electrical boxes are.

    You got my attention when you said Business Class is only double of Economy on Eva Air. From where I am from it's over 3x more expensive. Too bad. Double I would do assuming it's a lay flat seat.

    Many working girls back in the villages and provinces now.

    Generally they will return for duty no later than the 18th.

    Excellent advice from Syzygies regarding waterproofing. I personally avoid the built up areas during this time. TIP: ensure the liquid that is thrown towards you IS water.

    Yes; it was recently carved out of the Nana Hotel parking structure below the swimming pool. Strikers moved in when their Rajah parking lot location was slated for redevelopment.

    The NH management seems keen to further monetize the property location ala adding Hooters as tenants, and having the big neon sign facing the Suk soi 4 intersection. Good news really: if they have increased tenant incomes they are less likely to do something stupid like gentrifying the property by putting up expensive condos, or building more useless retail space.

    Which is likely the reason that it is for sale. I liked them when they were in the parking lot of the Rajah Hotel and I would drink, play pool and occasionally take out from there. After they moved it seemed like the whole vibe changed as did much of the staff. No fun even for former fans like me. The other buzz going around is just how much the rent increases are on Soi 4. The landlords have been (unintentionally?) forcing businesses to close with their greed.
