- PAD and foreigners
Ok, there are some People Against Democracy devotees in here who are stating that all foreigners be kicked out of Thailand so that Thailand can solve their own problems. Let’s take the on a trip down the Yellow Brick Road to Never, Never Land (yeah, I’m mixing stories here, but what the heck) and give them an idea of what it would be like if that were to...

- Double pricing system in Thailand
What do you think about the “double pricing system” in Thailand?
What’s about this: Foreigners (farangs) have to pay more than Thais when they go to a national park (like Khao Yai in Korat), or a zoo (like Chiang Mai Zoo & Night Safari).
In Khao Yai they want to have from foreigners about 400 baht and about only 80 baht from Thais. Or let go your wife ask

- Do you speak English Khun Noy?
Ms Noy’s gonna need some English lessons in order to pass her tests to prove that her command of the language is good enough before being granted her visa. The number of Thai women from the Northeast marrying foreigners is rising every year. Over the past few months, almost 2,000 people have shown their intention to marry foreigners.
If Thai women want to marry a...

- Why do ONLY foreigners get special promotion?
The advertising board on the way to Airport is shown "Foreigner Zone.. Buying house (somewhere around Bangkok..) Foreigner, with Special Price!!"
I know the property company may want to attract foreigners to invest in property in Thailand. But, what about Thais who also want to own the property in their own country but have to pay higher price than...

- Re: Farangs Barred From Buying Thai Land
Foreigners cannot use a Thai spouse as a nominee to buy property in Thailand, however.
“If the Thai spouse has enough money to buy the house that is fine, but if the Thai has no money and uses money given to him or her by a foreigner to acquire property, that is against the law. If we check and find out later that a Thai person has been using money from a...

- Common Smalltalk in Pasa Thai.
Fairly simple, although my memory may not be perfect on this.
Apart from discussions on politics, a tax driver is most likely going to want to know where to take you.
So, knowing how to say left, right, stop, go, and most importantly SLOW DOWN is imperative.
right: kwa. (rising tone if I recall)
go: trong pai.

- Buying goldplates in Thailand
I consider to buy gold in Thailand, as a security/investment.
Asking for information in Thai gold/jewelry shops I found out that the goldplates ( 1,2,5 and 10 Baht) only contain 96.5 % of pure gold , whereas in Europe and probably in other so-called Western countries, goldbars contain 99,9999 % of pure gold.
Can anyone tell me the reason why?

- Corruption and politics
Whilst the UDD have many genuine grievances, there are many who are just along for the ride. Why is this?
Well corruption at the local level, say 200 Baht to a traffic policeman, would seem to be perfectly acceptable to most Thais, but what about the major corruptions by governments running into billions and trillions of Bahts?
I think the Thai apathy towards this is
