I was there last year for Xmas and NYE and I had a great time. For Xmas there's a big Christmas display at Central World with Xmas decorations and a giant snowman (don't ask me why, I have no idea why they do this). It's actually something I recommend checking out, because it's a scene. You an also find Xmas decorations all over the big malls and in Thonglor. For Xmas day I did a fantastic Xmas buffet at the Siwahili or Siwalli Club at Central Embassy but you can probably find Xmas buffets around Sukhumvit at the big farang hotels and hangouts.

For NYE I did a roof top bar off Sukhumvit and had a great time as well. NYE in BKK is obviously not Songkran, but you can still party hard in Sukhumvit and Khao San.

Also Central World does fireworks at midnight on NYE so you should do a rooftop bar around Ploen Chit, or Chit Lom if you want to see it. The rooftop bar at the Indigo hotel has a great view of the fireworks show, as well as the rooftop bar at the Park Hyatt.

Or you can do KS either way you're bound to have a good time. But as AsiaSlayer pointed out the bars are on regular time so they may close as early as 1 am that night. But you can always hit up the afterhour spots to keep the party going.

Hello all,

i am also in BKK for NYE this year with some friends. As of now we plan to go to Central World. Has anyone some experience till when we can enter it? I think it would be closed at some time and we cannot enter the plaza.
Koh San Road is too fare away from our hotel. I think it would be hard to get a taxi later. Our hotel is on Soi 11.
Rooftop Bar we think is to boring. We think there is no real party there.
Any other Idea where we can spent a epic NYE ?

Fuck me, no truer words! It is like the pure evil of America and its Corporatocracy can never be escaped!

As an older dude I kinda focused on early 30s girls here, and I have noticed they seem to be the last generation of naturally slim/normal ones. The early 20s girls are packing on fat very fast. Things have changed massively in the 10 years I have been visiting here, and not for the better.

I should add that the Thai diet is not that great to start with, especially with shitty unhealthy street food cooked in god knows what used oil, but combine that with sugary drinks and this bullshit honey toast/ dessert place type craze I see every time I visit a mall it spells disaster. Honey toast....fml, sugary carbs just what they need.

Also add in that they doesn´t like to walk or go to the gym like western girls do. Normally they go with motorbike taxi. They are quite lazy.
How many days should you take to do a visa run? Will 1-2 suffice? I'm assuming I'll get hassled at immigration if I take a flight to Kuala Lumpur and then come back on the same day.

I entered CW plaza about 11.15pm last year, I don't think they closed it off.

Great show.......it's exciting to think the fireworks could detonate in the crowd at any moment.
Any dating site recommended aside from tinder nowadays? Tried Thaifriendly but it seems not good. Few girls there and that 10min message limitation.

I ll be there on Thursday if someone wants to hang around
Lads,

Second time visiting Bangkok. Didn't get there yet but just rented some stuff already.

Just a heads up: AirBnB is NOT PERMITTED in BKK, so be careful. Although you can rent some places over it, a lot of these places have signs saying "airbnb is not permitted etc if residents see people coming and go, police should be called". The only way to get it "legally" is if you rent for a month at least. I've seen some expat thai groups in Facebook and some people got arrested or got some headaches with the cops. Be aware.

2015 the prices were way better and airbnb was ok to use. After these changes, the ones available are a ripoff. 800USD for 1 bed around On Nut is a pain. If it is closer to Nana etc it gets even worse. Found a 1-bed studio for 17K baht around Ekammai (1 month), close to BTS... not the best price but not the worst.

Drop me a PM if you guys are around on Christmas

@any of the lads from 2015 will be there? cody, swell, yardog... think dr. feelgood is married now, but we never know

I've flown in/out of KL on the same day without any issues arriving back at DMK. I already had a multiple entry visa though, so was just activating a new 60-day period.

If you're going to KL to buy a new single entry visa, then I think you'll need to stay overnight anyway to go back and collect your visa from the Thai consulate the next day after handing in your application.

If you mean just getting a new 30 day exemption on re-entry then staying overnight shouldn't be necessary.

I'd make sure you have 20k Baht with you as I've heard of a few people being denied due to not having this.
A new skywalk / bar has just opened, girls will be very eager to go but need a guy to take them as it's pretty pricey admission

Ive been in and out of bkk 6-7 times this year on 30 day exemption. Iam currently in Bkk now and be leaving on sunday. I plan to re-enter within 12 days time. Does anyone think i will have issue on re-entering?
Some IOs if they're in a bad mood enforce a '6 exemptions per year' limit, especially if you stayed the whole length of each i.e. 180 days in the last 365. Female IOs more so, if you risk it pick a guy who doesn't seem to be sending people aside for questioning, and carry 20k baht cash, withdraw before you go and stash in suitcase as there are no ATMs airside on the way back. It's possible to still be let in if you're pulled aside for questioning, if you can show 20k to satisfy their 'proof of funds' requirement. 10k for a visa exemption, 20k for tourist visa, but I'd have 20k just in case, and a rented onward flight ticket printout from bestonwardticket.com for $8. And look presentable, no flip flops, vest, stubble etc. Ideally apply for a tourist visa in the country you're going to for 12 days.

"Tickets to the skywalk? They come at two levels: 850 baht tickets offer access to the 74th floor, while 1,050 baht tickets offer access to all the three floors (74th, 75th and 78th)."

Fuck! That is pricey.

My gym admission was 40 baht today and tomorrow cinema visit will 100 baht.

My fight to Southern Thailand was 1079.52 baht on TRAVELOKA. There's Lion Air flights to Krabi and Phuket starting at 550 baht on TRAVELOKA.

So fuck that skywalk bullshit. I rather buy moo ping 1050 times. Hahaha

Thailand doesn't want Cheap Charlies who live like underclass Thai people. They're trying pretty hard to market themselves as being a destination for rich people.

Except they're a military dictatorship and taxes are high (and unreliable banks). The only redeeming thing about the place is overdevelopment and a huge underclass that keeps prices low (which is the #1 reason why tourists go there over other competitors).

Thailand is kind of like a fat chick who wants to be a runway model. Chinese who spend a lot of money there is kind of the equivalent of the fat chick getting pumped by Chads on Tinder.

Why don't you just buy a single entry visa from whichever country you're travelling to?

You're just making life more difficult for yourself using back-to-back exceptions and increasing the chances you'll be denied entry

For something more lowkey and chill there is Water Y (now renamed I think) in Chatuchak near soi 24 close to Central Lad Prao. This place is mostly Thai's so not overpriced. It's a trip as it is a rooftop bar on the top of some random condo in a back soi!

Also the Centara Hotel next to Central Lad prao has a very cool rooftop restaurant and bar. These offer nicer views from northern Bangkok looking back on the city.

Don't think the Chinese are dropping much money in Thailand, lots of talk about the zero dollar tours they all come on and all the money that gets funneled only into Chinese hands.

Maybe a couple more boat accidents and they will figure out how dangerous the place can be and they will all fuck off back to China.

I would be careful on back to back 30 day exempt visas. I have never been denied but have been questioned even after returning 3 days later from Vietnam, not a same day turn to KL or something similar. Not staying the whole 30 days and leaving for sometime and then coming back they do not seem to mind as much.

I have never really had a problem on the visa front but they do make it a pain in the ass. Going to Cheang Wattana for an extension is also a nearly all day misery that makes a trip to the DMV seem like fun. These and other things are slowly turning me off to the Big Mango...and business is slowing as well...I may have an affordable pimp condo for sale late next year....
Going to the immigration office in Cheang Wattana doesn't need to be an all day mission. You should plan on arriving before the office opens and be first line.

Just to clarify, i've been 6 times to bkk this year on 30 day excemption and each time i have stayed between 10-20 days (some which are much less). Each time, i have left to UK and HK (I carry UK passport)

My recent trip which is now, i will be leaving after 20 days stay and flying back to UK. I then intend to fly back to bkk 12 days later for a 29 day stay. So the best solution would be for me to carry 20k in cash and show that i work in UK/HK. Would i need visa still?
The Chinese have already stopped going to Thailand. Their govt issued an edict recommending against it...and the good little hive minders have done as they're told.

Phuket feels deserted at the moment without them; whether it will make much difference to the Thais is questionable though as mostly they spent their money with Chinese owned businesses.

RE immigration; I've always felt that like everything in Asia, what matters most is status. If you look like you're rich, you can do what you want.

I usually get 60 day visas from the UK and then extend by 45 (30 then 15) at Phuket immigration; usually takes about 15 mins now that they've finally got some semblance of process and order in place at the office. Then use a couple of VOA before coming home and repeating the whole thing. Never had a single issue.

It's also corrupt as hell and not very safe anymore. Of course no-one wants to see their country turn into a top destination for low class people but how can you suddenly attract rich people who have can go somewhere cleaner, more organized and classier than some peasant populated third world country where there is massive prostitution and institutionalized freak shows aka lady boys running around. Like you say Thailand has the advantage of being able to offer a relatively good infrastructure and services in relation to prices that the masses can afford.
