I am interested to hear some positive reasons about why Bangkok is such a good place to live. As there are a lot of expats living here there must be a lot of reasons. For me it is with out a doubt the great food! Both Thai and international you will not go hungry in Bangkok! Camille
Dear All, I am contacting you from ITV in London where we are currently undertaking a project about British Ex-pats in Thailand who are in a dilemma about whether or not to return to the UK. We are looking for people who have set up a new life abroad but have failed to shake off that lingering attachment to Britain. So, how can you give up a sunny climate and great lifestyle for an image of Britain that may no longer exist? How can you be sure Britain can offer you anywhere near the lifestyle you have abroad? We offer people the chance to come back to the UK for one week to test drive its pros and cons. We analyse the positive aspects about a return to Britain whilst also highlighting the reason why you left in the first place. The issues tackled whilst back home are completed predicated upon the issues people want to resolve. For many it is looking round the types of properties they can afford back home whilst for others it’s addressing work opportunities, schooling concerns or just seeing how they would go about re-integrating themselves back into British society. Whatever your issues our goal is to ensure that by the end of the week our participants have all the information they need to make an informed decision about whether to come home or remain an expat. If this sounds like you then please get in touch with me via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0044207 4285752 Best Wishes Michael
Hello All, I'll be in BKK next month for business for a couple of weeks. I'd like to find somewhere to stay which is a bit nicer than your average business hotel, but not too expensive. Either a boutique style hotel or possibly a reasonably priced serviced apartment? Any suggestions? NZ
I was using the MRT and BTS to get around Bangkok yesterday and was really very impressed. The only problem was that it seemed I needed two separate tickets and couldn't get a one day ticket to allow me unlimited travel on both the sky train and metro. I tried asking one of the attendants but I'm not sure she understood. Can anyone help me by confirming that it is or it's not possible?
In the past I've always bought Canon ink for my Canon printer. Yesterday when I went to buy some more ink there was a saleswoman trying to sell me some cheap ink. It was about half the price of the genuine stuff. I was under the impression that cheap ink would damage the printer? Is this true or is it just something that the printer manufacturers spread around so that everyone buys their ridiculously expensive ink?! Ruud
My husband will be posted to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia soon and I'm a little worried about making the move with him. From what I've heard, things are fairly tough for women and am not convinced that I'm suited for it. Has anyone got any words of advice, reassuring or otherwise?
My husband will be having his 50th birthday later this year and I am looking for a unique gift. Having been together 20 years I'm beginning to run out of ideas! Plus the fact that I am relatively new to Bangkok, means that I would appreciate any help with either ideas or places to go to look for presents. Thank you in advance Nora
