If you're looking for a venue to watch the Aussie AFL Grand Final on 25th September, I know that the Thailand Tigers, the Bangkok AFL team, are hosting a function at the Australian Pub on soi 11. It's something like 1900 baht a ticket and you get all day beer and wine, breakfast and Aussie lunch. I think it's pretty good value, if you can stomach a beer at 10 o'clock in the morning that is! My friend said that you can get tickets over the counter at the pub or go to their website www.thailand-tigers.com
We are trying to locate a shop in Bangkok that supplies reasonably priced camping equipment for both adults and kids for items such as walking boots, thermals, water purification tablets and herbal tablets to help prevent altitude sickness eg Rhodiola Rosea Root. Thanks very much
HiUnfortunately unlike in the other cities, there is no website for book swapping in Thailand. I intend to keep this as a regular post in hope to start an unofficial channel for book swapping and encourage other members to start doing so. Selling my books to 2nd hand book stores and spend more buying from them just seems silly. Anyhow these are what I have at hand currently:Offer:The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy FowlerElegance by Kathleen TessaroNumber Ten by Sue TownsendBel Canto by Ann PachettSalmon Fishing in Yemen by Paul TordayAlentejo Blue by Monica AliWanted:Any Haruki Marakami books (except Kafka on the Shore & The Wind-up Bird Chronicle)Any Michael Palin travel booksSwapping by either mail or exchange in person around Wireless Road or Sathon / Silom. If there are more books, I'm to go a little further.
