uckibso Government paid PEA for 15% off your host's electricity bill for the last couple months when everyone was staying home
feswyhuigdiyx1d
It's ending this month, but it's been great
tldmpkgu1d
pzqqdyh sick place
sxopwo1d
Hmm maybe just about same size as xuexdvrxxmtcila place
hajvdemzinqqv1d
Looks like Koh Samui Bo Phut?
qcgwiekpbdesn1d
Somewhere up near gecko bar?
pgrdqe1d
Mae Nam
cfcfnk1d
Bit remote but great deals now
cufumoem1d
what's the rent for it
wvoqufiecsgdq1d
Yeah man, we're neighbors!
blrjyjdctvbrc1d
I'll be down there soon
zrxwuq1d
Itโ€™s called panorama, this is the host (actually the complex management)
hfofxucsvtcfr1d
Huh, I don't think I know that one
mldmtgoxsqdat1d
I'm sure I've been there
byzahb1d
hmm, canโ€™t figure out how to link the profile but itโ€™s this account abnb.me/dAvf41yL26
fvnyqw1d
They do look just as pictured...
hzmkrjeyudlvu1d
Very nice
nylsrb1d
Is it Replay
mlpvkaeawhnab1d
Nah, next door
luzqaj1d
Let me know when you make it! beerspalm_tree
aapakd1d
Here a month at least
ercolv1d
Realistically just until everything blows over
etyxtzoyztvpp1d
Will do!
mwbjrwqkovwfp1d
It's a good place to wait things out, though I like Bangkok more
nucvyeqmokkkj1d
Now that things are opening up
mlqzcfhfqdoda1d
Did you get a monthly rate on that?
twefrd1d
Yes, though itโ€™s a different unit - the one I linked though was around $1350 US by the month I think
yshyhn1d
...before utilities I guess ๐Ÿ˜’
ogfvisszcxion1d
That's a ton of cash for where you're at, but it looks well spent
anpsovxukyfbnh1d
Thatโ€™s right opposite to the replay condo, right?
ybrkkr1d

Panorama, where we are, is about a 20 min drive from Replay. We actually stayed in Replay a week while checking out places which is why I know it
aywald1d
Facilities very nice, but itโ€™s across the street from beach and a very still heat all day as a consequence. Ton of good deals to be had everywhere here right now (for regrettable reasons obviously)
dareuufivrehm1d
Not gonna make any money, but at least my vacations are free :)
wdkrcbwtw13h
Samui nomads, I'm here for few days. Any good cafes to work from? Ideally with aircon. I'm near fisherman's village but happy to scooter
pidvftvjba12h
Is it possible to find an apartment with reliable 100Mbps up/down internet with no data caps?
gfgfho12h
upynibyjdm K.O.B. I find ok to work from
rvczbg12h
Ling would be ok but the music is unforgivable
vzngnspgzvktl12h
Yes. You can easily get symmetrical 1gbps in most of Thailand
aetiba12h
Also My Cafe is good ok_handskin-tone-2
rvlbnjpahtbwr12h
The retail salespeople often don't know about these plans, because demand is low
eqnvalwwsithz12h
But if you push they can find it
vjikciopk12h
Thanks juizhrl
zwqhmbohappad12h
100mbps sym is truly everywhere
lvgskiadxjzdl12h
The Coffee Club in fisherman's village is the best "doing real work" spot in your area, although a bit boring.
bojjycbfjazgs12h
If you want something a little more scenic and outdoor try Ling Cafe on the beach up the street
kytbckizobmma12h
Huh, I didn't know Ling started playing music
vaerynexlbqyf12h
What do they play?
jltagrgyab12h
1 gbps easily??
tewvfphqlt12h
that is news to me
gtdntyqipd12h
you mean residentially?
lenruwlfqskbb12h
Yes, I have 1gbps in all three of my places
kafqiswwin12h
what cities, out of curiosity? this is music to my ears
eylgsualfafvp12h
Bangkok / Pathum Thani / Koh Samui
gfcqbocnlfyrn12h
3BB is a little better but True is fine, if you are residential with True they may only be able to put you on "Gamer Package" which is asym but still well above your requirements
iaauyqkkie12h
anything above 100 symmetric I'm happy with, but gigabit is the dream
fpnufeywujvku12h
Welcome to the dream then
vmpvjcyjhznpn12h
I get bursts up to 1.8gbps
ppcdtapojl12h
damn, that is nuts
owybecdsja12h
I get true gigabit consistently, but had to fight tooth and nail to get it
hserzrowkrrzo12h
Where
majcwybuao12h
Las Vegas, NV
zuvvdnsfvnebb12h
Oh, no wonder
ibgtjfafiufry12h
I bet that is expensive
mehmndepzo12h
$65/month, plus it's a business expense
nasrknnkku12h
not awful
eteagwkvsf12h
I've paid $100+ for gigabit before
bjcjhmupsaget12h
I think I'm paying around 800 baht per location
qvkdmncepcfes12h
Give or take
bbedziblyr12h
ya, that's pretty good
nivzkujilx12h
is this a recent development or have they had widely available gigabit for a while?
cypazqxgzmpgw12h
I was on 250 a year ago, and then they came and upgraded me for free
ttrkorkcriibt12h
So I did some research
sqwmccdpcikvq12h
I guess it's pretty new
chqkvr10h
anybody ordered a computer directly from Apple th recently and know if it is possible to get VAT refund (without going to the store) ๐Ÿค”
wdeljumebtiian10h
I did, you need to be in person to either Apple or Authorised reseller.
xssukhwcbzxcod10h
They need to see your passport
wdmhmvvi10h
buobfml plus there's a 2 or 3 month window where you have to fly out to get that VAT refund otherwise it expires
tiolpuby10h
iirc
mlpkyb10h
๐Ÿคฌ I didnโ€™t know that. I have a big stack of VAT refund forms from the last several months
xafcwwhz10h
uh oh
giqeil10h
Iโ€™m guessing they are not organized enough to make exceptions for covidโ€ฆ
msphvx10h
oh well
baviivik10h
sdyoiwt you could ask your thai visa elite concierge?
rpsbhmbn10h
maybe they have a creative solution for ya
gxcrbhqv10h
Refunds will not be granted in the following cases:
โ€ข Your stay in Thailand exceeds 180 days in a calendar year.
โ€ข Goods were not taken out of Thailand within 60 days after the date of purchase.
โ€ข You didn't depart Thailand from an international airport.
ubypml10h
Itโ€™s not a huge deal, I didnโ€™t buy a car or something
qhyhuhuf10h
it also doesn't apply to hotels or food or whatever etc
vpasbqqu10h
non-consumables only (things you can take out of thailand before the 60 days is up)
auywtmnt10h
and must be more than 2,000 baht
qnmuaw10h
Oh wow so Iโ€™m pushing this in a number of ways ๐Ÿ˜‚
mcygfqed10h
๐Ÿ˜›
cjcijbbmmbtdr9h
avfhhczni Someone at a shop told me recently that the government will extend the vat refund expiration date. I don't know if this is true.
kwsmdqad6h
i did just that, i ordered a new macbook online from Apple in Thailand but I couldnโ€™t get a refund because the VAT refund does not apply to products purchased online, only in those purchased in the Apple store. I even picked mine up at the Iconsiam Apple store.
cynzjkty5h
Thatโ€™s a strange rule
ekrjua5h
Maybe it has something to do with presenting passport or something (making sure itโ€™s really you)
wftqun5h
In any case itโ€™s kind of a relief since I canโ€™t make it to Bangkok any reasonable time, and need to order custom anyhow
slwsqt5h
But yeah youโ€™d think if you pick up at the Apple store theyโ€™d be ok
awvlpfny5h
If memory serves me well, last time I wanted to ask for vat refund I had to fill in some form in the store, but that was ~ 3 years ago.
ibimeudt5h
Yea they wouldnโ€™t let me fill out the form since it was ordered online. I did purchase a power pack to charge the Mac at the Apple store, at the same time, and that they allowed me a VAT refund form for the power pack.
ztukzzzc5h
Yea strange rule. I even asked before I ordered but they said no. Itโ€™s stated on the Apple web site too when ordering. I forget the link though.
