๐Ÿ›ฌ mvmnmzlq just arrived in ๐Ÿฎ Chiang Mai, #thailand
Can anyone recommend a physiotherapist in Chiang Mai?
I often work from Nikitas for a quick 1-2h stint.
We are going for food at about 14:00. Also regarding drinks a bit problem is that after 21:00 they donโ€™t sell alcohol anymore
I see you havenโ€™t met the taxi cartel in phuket yet. I have a standing boycott of them, except for my weekly hotel changes. I just walk everywhere.
where/when you guys wanna meet up?
Just finishing up here.
Any suggestions, some place with food?
I need about one more hour to finish. Regarding food maybe Macaw place
i just ordered some grab food. but happy to join anyway
Anyone looking for a cheap stay in ~Surat Thani~ Ban Tai, Koh Phangan, Surat Thani check out BeauBo beach. The owner is a ball of happiness :hugging_face:. Also you get a better price if you book direct. That is all!
r u guys already there?
I was about to ask the same. Will join you as well
going now to Macaw. will be there in about 15min
we're heading over to macaw now

first time experiencing this last night... a restaurant in Ekkamai required you to take an ATK test at the entrance outside, at your own expense, before dining there. we left.
Hi guys!
The embassy just refused my Visa Premiere insurance for my STV visa and they ask I sign up for a thailandese one. I thought the Visa Premiere was OK since it largely covers what they ask for... Anyone has had a similar experience? How long does it take to subscribe to a new one?
Also, any tips for the 3 month stay justification? I don't plan on booking my hotels for 3 months in advance... ๐Ÿ˜…
It's getting ridiculous with the ATKs. I hope everyone boycotts them so this goes away fast.
For hotels just book something you can cancel and then cancel as soon as your visa is approved
Nice, Iโ€™m planning to go to Rawai soon too haha ๐Ÿ˜„
tqgnnnuqjb excited to see you soon dude
I recognize two faces
How much did they want to charge fore the test?
๐Ÿ—“ okwchxvy is organizing a meetup in Bangkok at The Coffee Club on Sunday, 23 January at 130000 let's meet for brunch and coffee. Share our travel experience, find new friends and travel buddies,

โœ… RSVP here
I think 100 baht which is also twice the price that you can get it in 7-11, but I'm not sure. I was just pissed in principal, so we went somewhere else.
Usually 100-150 depending on where
dwvljvvnkphq yeah seems like the right thing to do. Thanks!
<@U0LUCHG7Q> likewise man! ๐Ÿ˜„
Can you recommend a nice hotel in Rawai?
For the first 7 days
Does anyone know if the visa extensions start from the day you're approved, or from the date your existing visa expires
Thanks, yeah I have a few tabs open. This was one of it ๐Ÿ˜„
from what I know:
โ€ข TR extension -- from the date visa expires
โ€ข COVID stamps -- from the day it's approved

โœ‰๏ธ Has anyone here ever sent a letter to Thailand? I need a tiny little device that fits in a letter but I'm wondering how long it would take and if letters frequently get lost. Sending a package starts at around 40โ‚ฌ. The letter is just a euro
we got here a little early. we have a big table out front. it's a bit sunny, so if we need to move inside that's fine
Is it an expensive device?
~50โ‚ฌ but Iโ€™d like to get it pretty soon
Where's it shipping from?
Germany. But I think I figured it out in the meantime. It seems you canโ€™t send anything but documents via mails since 2019 :expressionless:
Thereโ€™s a reasonably affordable way thoug hat 8.89โ‚ฌ + 4โ‚ฌ for the tracking
Where is it at the Beach?
We just got here
Hi Guys,

I have just arrived in Phuket. We are looking with my business partner a good place to work with a good internet connection. Anyone wants to have a drink ?

where in Phuket are you?
I'm in Patong
Probably not easy to find a good coffeeshops to work there. maybe hotel lobbies. Internet speed is fast and reliable almost everywhere
most ppl here are either in Phuket town or Rawai
Thanks Cephei prayskin-tone-2
I didnโ€™t get the surgery in Thailand so canโ€™t help there. But I can say for 1000% that itโ€™s best thing iv done getting the smile surgery. Recovery wasnโ€™t too bad and no flap worries.
Dude everyone rents bikes
I was walking everywhere too but decided to get a bike. It's just not pedestrian friendly here, walking over square sewer coversโ€ฆ Hope the transition to EV motorbikes comes sooner than later. All the noise and fumes ๐Ÿคฎ
What is that? DHL?
Hello guys! Switch place its would be better for familly?

My family want to come to Asia, Indoensia eight now is taking quarantine as Visas, we decided to go Thailand. Would you reccoment Phuket? How about Po Pha Ngan?
๐Ÿ›ฌ dnpxwym just arrived in ๐Ÿ Ko Pha Ngan, #thailand
Immigration today in Ko Phangan was very chaotic. Since there was no queueing system even though people arrived early and tried to keep a list of who came after who, it quickly turned into a unorganized mob when they actually opened.
Edit and you have to come again in the afternoon to pick up your passport - in case you didn't know.
qilerdgmxdllc you can do the 60day covid visa extension yourself, but not directly from a 30day visa on arrival unless you use an agent
same in Koh Samui today ๐Ÿ˜ช
Any idea on how to get a record of the vaccine? I didn't get any paper after my shot
any word is they are going to continue the COVID extensions past Jan 25?
Very, very crowded at Phuket office.
Hi, there was a great post a while ago that compares the vibe of the few places in Thailand. Just ignore weather comments because now itโ€™s a dry season everywhere.
So many โ€œjust arrivedโ€ ๐Ÿ˜ป
I am coming from Vietnam on Saturday, itโ€™s been 2 years since anyone arrived ๐Ÿ˜น
Umm you should have 1000% got a paper. Best bet now would be to go back to the place you got it if it is still there, and if not I'd try the Ko Samui Hospital that ran the program. Take your Passport, have the date and time of your vaccine etc.
Might have been a year since Iโ€™ve seen another nomad
You should try Saigon, I have to wash my face every time I switch location, islands are nothing
Ok thanks for the confirmation. I got it at Ko Pha Ngan hospital so I'll get it from them
I'm also interested in this. Not sure if there's anything tied to CMU
Yep - once you have it, it will have a 13 digit number on it. You can use that to register an account on the MorPom app to get a digital version, and it now can apparently produce a EU recognized certificate too.
I took a picture of a slip they stapled to my registration form that had my HN and CID on it. So I have those numbers for reference.

Anyways I called the KPG hospital and they said I can get the record in room 9
If I rented a bike, I would end up killing myself. Alcohol / police extortion / bike shop extortion โ€”> Donโ€™t want to deal with all that.
I couldn't find any news or info if they are continuing the COVID extensions after 25 Jan. Does the Immigration office have an update on this? Tomorrow might be another chaotic day if they don't extend this
Hello guys :slightly_smiling_face:
Me and 2 friends are planning to visit Thailand in February, we are super exited!

Would like to know where's the best place to go for a:
-Beautiful Beach
-Good nightlife
-Good gyms & Restaurants
-Many coworking places

Thanks in advance!
Wish you a beautiful day.
A couple of google reviews saying they asked for 60 day covid extension but got only 30 days instead
Cool, good idea to have the paper.
Koh Phangan might be the best fit. Or around Phuket somewhere.
Sounds like staying in Rawai in Phuket would be a good option. And you can always drive to Patong for nightlife.
pnroivsajxl Richard Barrow has some info on this now -
otddbqjlfv thanks for the update! so 25 March is the next deadline. hope they won't be too strict
unfortunately not with Visa on Arrival stamp
Alcohol, sure, legit, the rest is an non-issue:

โ€ข Bike shops arenโ€™t going to extort you any more than any other vendor, just know the price, itโ€™s like $60/month, easy solve
โ€ข Police struggle to extort you if you get a license and wear your helmet, even if they do, theyโ€™ll extort you for like $5-10,
You do you itโ€™s just every time you tell someone something isnโ€™t walkable Iโ€™m lolโ€™ing because no else is walking.

Avoiding bikes AND taxis in SEA is a great way to miss half of SEA.
Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚
Has anyone applied for it before when it was available? How long does it take to process?
Hi guys!

Does anyone apply for the 30 days extension of stay in Chiang-Mai without tourist visa recently?
Is this done in the office located in Promenada Chiang Mai or in the one located near the air port?
I am confused btw those :(
Hi guys,

Is catching/riding a SHA+ taxi at the Phuket airport fairly easy? I believe the pricing is regulated, so am hoping I don't need to haggle for the fair, and there should be plenty of SHA+ taxis (since all foreigners landing are supposed to take this type of taxi). Any experiences on this topic is appreciated!
I thought your hotel is supposed to arrange transport, at lest they did for my sandbox
damn that would suck if VOA canโ€™t get covid extensions anymore
I think they just extended it until 25th of March
I just caught a taxi a few days ago from Phuket Airport to Karon - no haggling - they basically asked if I had booked transport, I said no, they said 1000 baht to Karon, and I was off in about 2 mins. Just make sure you have cash and it's all good.

Was actually super impressed with the operational efficiency of the Phuket Airport for the sandbox ๐Ÿ‘
