  6. News: Re: US Embassy apologises for error in writing invitation to Independence Day celebra

    I don't think it was a "freudian slip". It's how he was listed in their database. My invitation from the US Embassy was much the same with the second line on the envelope describing the group that I...
  7. Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    Yes, hotels and homeowners can submit forms online.

    From what I understand, they will only insist on you proving your address if you are acting suspiciously or come from a target group. That is...
  8. URGENT: Re: Double Check your Visa Extension Stamps

    Just to add my two cents worth - Last year, and about five years ago, I changed my job. As my documents weren't in order for the new job, I had to leave the country and come back on the Visa...

    Re: Visa Questions

    That is a good question. If you change your address, you should, in theory, submit form TM 28 to say you have moved and the owner of the house should submit form TM 30 to say they have a foreign...

  12. Re: Internet marketing: start a Company to live in Thailand

    There is change, but it is usually within the interpretation of the law. For example with the 30 day extension of stay. If they want to, they can give you 15 days. There is no need for a change of...
  13. Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    Thanks for that update bigt116. If I get time today, I will go and ask them about the form to acknowledge consequences of overstay. If it is still needed, I will try and get a clean copy to make it...
  14. URGENT: Re: Double Check your Visa Extension Stamps

    I take your point about "Retirement Visa". But, sometimes it is difficult to find a suitable phrase in English for some things. "Visa for Old People"?
  15. URGENT: Re: Double Check your Visa Extension Stamps

    About the terminology for extension of stay, even my local Immigration officers say "extend visa". It's one of those things that is hard to change. But, I will try and do my best to say it right in...
  16. URGENT: Re: Double Check your Visa Extension Stamps

    I do know people who have permission to stay in Thailand for longer periods than one year. I also know that last year they were discussing giving teachers a two year extension if they had a two year...
  17. Re: Internet marketing: start a Company to live in Thailand

    Yes, I would also suggest to see if you can go down the BOI road as you won't need to hire four Thais for each foreigner.
  18. Re: Soon you will face a ban if you overstay in Thailand

    As far as I know, they are still telling people to sign that "overstay warning" form at Samut Prakan Immigration. Two of our teachers had to sign it last week. I'm going to extend my stay there soon...

    Re: Tha Kha Floating Market

    The private tour guides have found the market now and the last few times I've been there have been small groups of foreign tourists. But, I've hardly seen any independent tourists so far. The real...
  23. Re: Celebrating Wan Ok Phansa in Bangkok

    I haven't actually been to that temple. But it is safe to say the majority will have some kind of activity. But, usually the day before. Nearer the time I will start posting information as and when...
  24. Re: Celebrating Wan Ok Phansa in Bangkok

    Many temples, if not all, have some kind of organized activity marking the end of Buddhist Lent. At the basic level it will be just offering alms and listening to a sermon. I know Sanam Luang usually...

  26. Re: The Brutal Buddhist Ordination Parade in Chaiyaphum

    From what I learned, this tradition was started about 50 years ago by a young man and his friend. They apparently wanted to show their real intent on becoming monks. Carrying monks on bamboos...

  28. Re: The Brutal Buddhist Ordination Parade in Chaiyaphum

  31. Re: The Brutal Buddhist Ordination Parade in Chaiyaphum

    No, it is to test their intent in becoming a monk. Many young men ordain only because it is expected of them by their parents and family. Quite a few probably don't really want to do it. But, if they...
  32. The Brutal Buddhist Ordination Parade in Chaiyaphum
