    Saw the autogate at Nong Khai. After passing the gate, there is one immigration officer sitting there to chop the passport, dio boh?

    Edit: understand this autogate only for the normal visa exempt 30 days visit. Any other visa, including Non B, Non O, and Tourist Visas still must join the ah tiong crowds at the normal immigration queue.

    Yes, only for visa exempt. But not having to join Ah Tiong in the queue, very shiok.

    Gents, any good to try Priority Pass (lane)? Short circuit Q and sinkie lane mishaps.
    Tried once (without it), and the bitch at counter gave me a bollacking (show power to her superior) kns.
    Criteria?
    My modus operandi, is to hit the senior citizens/family Q (I probably look it, and plead innocence)

    Have fast track lobang for a small fee for those who want to skip the notorious slow and long queues at suvarnhabhumi or don muang.

    Only for those never kenna blacklist and also certain countries dont qualify. Sinkies can.

    Hi all and fellow resident Froggy! I’ve been following this thread for some time now and to be exact on the timelines it was around 2011-2012 when i chanced upon this thread as a NSF.

    Since then, I’ve been following recommendations by seasoned samsters here whenever I’m in Bangkok.

    Cliche as it sounds, the love for Bangkok started with a thai lady whom I dated for a fair bit in early 2012 and that interest extended out to the rest of the country with me travelling solo from Danok to Chiang mai. Looking back today, I still feel there is so much to learn about the culture and environment

    These days being the city boy I am, I travel to Bangkok whenever my schedule permits. It’s mostly solo trips and sometimes with old local friends popping by to say hi ;)

    Hope to acquaint with the guys here and provide inputs wherever I can. I’m definitely not at the level where most of you guys at right now yet will be more than happy to learn and share wherever required.

    Cheers,

    P.s. Peppe’s a really great guy to chat with!

    Actually vege also not too crazy about hotels.

    Just want to give vege a small reward for helping out during the low period. Not easy to find zhabor to work under the hot sun selling Issan Moo yor sausage when vege can relax in the aircon apartment. Sausage also quite heavy as have to carry them around and board the tour buses.

    Even if no strike lottery, will still try to bring vege for short holiday, hopefully by this month end.

    Nowadays, go out must check “traffic updates” (mata road blocks) in fb first. Soi Bong Kot now have mata roadblocks. At this hour means big one, not just check helmet or driving license one.

    This Soi Bong Kot is a shortcut to connect Soi Kor Pai to both Third road and Pattaya Klang. Use this soi very often.
