Hi, looking at some of the prices today for imported goods - toys, clothes and food it struck me that maybe it's not just import taxes that make them so expensive, but also certain retailers putting hefty mark-ups on so called "luxury" imported goods, when back home we all know they are far from luxury brands!

My partner and I will soon be arriving in Thailand for a holiday and we were hoping to get in contact with any English speaking birdwatching clubs in Thailand.

Not sure if this is the best forum for this question but too lazy to join another "technical" forum to ask the question. My mobile has become particularly erratic when I'm connecting to the internet, like I may have a virus or something. How do I know for sure and is there anything I can do about it? JAL

I need to get a diamond ring repaired, not a quick job as the band will be replaced and the stone reset. I have a design in mind but am very nervous about the jewellers in Bangkok, having heard about a lot of scams. Is there a shop that I could trust enough to leave the diamond with them while they make the new ring?

Hi not having visited a temple before I'm a little unsure of temple etiquette and have heard a number of conflicting ideas. For example with regards to photos...is it ok or not? And dress...do women have to wear long trousers or is a skirt ok? If so what length? Any help with what is correct and what isn't?

Cousins arriving by cruise boat for the day in a couple of weeks. Anyone know if there are ferry boat links or other river boat services from the port to the "main" spots on the Chao Praya? Would rather start their day with a boat ride than a taxi ride! All ideas appreciated.

I saw a poster up for a "Living Bangkok" exhibition being held at the Bumrungrad hospital in September. It's an annual event and the publicity claims that it's a must for expats? Has anyone been to one of the previous exhibitions and got any comments? Thanks.
