  1. Bangkok pollution has gotten seriously bad in the past 5-7 years. There is apparently no planning, so they just keep building. I would have bought a condo there 7 years ago if the planets would have aligned... now, no way. Better places to go.
  2. Oh yea, forgot about that ... another aspect of the beating
  3. Re the cab fare ... it’s pretty much a rip off ... I pay 800 Bt to go from my house in Kalasin to Khon Kaen airport ... 110 km. The first time I went to Phuket in 2008 I paid 350. But, it’s now well controlled by the taxi mafia ... it is literally impossible to get a cheaper fare. I’ve tried a couple of times asking some apparently "freelance drivers" ... they all quote the same prices. PS ... you CAN get to Patong cheaper by taking a group van ...

  9. How is their score not 3? clearly the scorers have never been to Thailand.
  10. Who is it that is keen to do business in Thailand?
  11. Of all the things you could protest in Thailand ....
  12. Personally, I think the days of wonder over how big the Chinese (potential) market is are over ... a major pullback from China is coming, IMO ... why do business with them on those terms? Doing business with China has brought the rest of the world down in the past 20 years. Time to stop.
