Hi, I was in a taxi today and there was such a mass of amulets and other stuff hanging around the rear-view mirror he could hardly see out the car. It got me thinking about what exactly are amulets for....are they a Buddhist thing similar to the cross worn by Christians?

Any suggestions for a very frustrated internet user? TOT broadband has slowed to a dismal speed over the last few days and TOTs response is that because we are 1km from Silom we are at the end of the line and should expect a slow speed. When I pointed out I was paying for 2mbs but getting 415 kbps there wasn't much reaction. True don't service where I live so as far as I'm aware there is no alternative....pleaseee help me.....!!! any ideas are very welcome!

I'm in Thailand after graduating and considering what to try next. I met a guy who was telling me it was possible to study for an MBA in one of Thailand's universities. Is there any truth in this and if anyone is reading this that is doing it, or finished, any comments would be appreciated.
Hi...we are very excited about coming to Bangkok for one week next month! I've read a couple of other threads on this forum about things to do in Bangkok, but what I was really interested in, was what we should do for a one day trip out of Bangkok. It has to be reasonably close, three hours drive max....but we are completely open to any suggestions!!
Hi Everyone My name is Sue Raper We are trying to get in touch with an old friend. We are looking for Chris Short who moved to Thailand in 2006 from Scarborough North Yorkshire, he is originally from Leeds, West Yorkshire. We moved to Deux Sevres, France in December of that year and have lost his contact details. A long shot I know but I was wondering if anyone on this site knows him? We can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org Any information would be great fully received. Many thanks Sue&Midge
Hi...we are here on vacation and yesterday went to a National Park to look at some waterfalls. Very splendid and the whole park was well looked after. I met a very friendly Thai family and they told me that they only paid 20 baht each to enter the National Park. Well, we all paid 100 baht each so what's going on. The Thai family told me it was official park policy to charge tourists more than locals but it sounds a bit wrong to me? What's the real story?
