Re: Question on Thailand

I like EVA. Evergreen Deluxe class is a great deal. And I'd rather leave LAX at midnight and arrive in BKK at noon than leave LAX at noon an arrive in BKK at midnight.

It's pronounced JAY-FRIP-JAH.

Re: Question on Thailand

Have any of you read Thailand Fever yet? Authors Pirazzi and Vasant speak directly about Thai-Western relationships... for a short review click here
and scroll about 1/4 down the page.

Those of you married to Thais -- what do you think? Have you read the book? Maybe you could write your own from your personal experience!* *8)

Re: Question on Thailand

Thailand is a grown mans Disneyland.* You can do almost anything you could want to do on a very cheap budget.*

But I agree, watch out for the street peddlers, they are out to screw you.* Also, if a guy hands you a monkey and takes your picture.* Pay for it or you'll get a nasty surprise!!!* Better yet, don't take the monkey.

If you own anything American like old Levis, military stuff etc... It is worth a LOT in trade.

I did actually win out on one trade there from a street peddler.* He was offering me every piece of garbage under the sun for my watch.* After he gave me what I thought was an offer I couldn't refuse, I gave him my watch.* He looked back at me really pissed off and pointed to the back of the watch where it said "Made in the Phillipines".* he he. :P

Try the Thai whiskey, it is pretty good stuff.* Don't drink the water.* Do eat the fruit it is excellent.* If you go in the farming country, some farmers will let you eat their fruit out of hospitality.* Give them something.* They are very kind people.* The pineapple is to die for.*

All in all Thailand was a absolute blast.* Highly recommended.

Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don't have to worry about money no more. And I said, that's good! One less thing.* * * * ** Forrest Gump
