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.
