  1. In a similar vein, but not quite as expensive is the Le Meridien Hotel Sunday "brunch" buffet in Chiang Rai.

    At 600B (500 for regulars and card holders) a head it's remarkably good value with sushi and smoked salmon putting in a regular appearance.

    They have regular "themes" Chinese, Japanese, Indochinese, northern and southern European...

    Excellent fresh juices and coffee included. Spectacular desert trolley.

    A long way to go for Sunday lunch but highly recommended if you're there anyway.

     

     

    Will keep it in mind ..have not been up that way for a long time..spent a lot of time in Mae Chan several years ago..

  4. Yes she is ...Ten years married now ....uses her OZ passport..we had a problem with using her Thai passport out of BKK...the original visa (spouse) expired and this was a hassle so she handed over her OZ one to prove OZ citizenship ..the guy yesterday said she "could" use it ..so we are confused and must follow this up ...the problem is with TG check in staff not the Immigration guys...

    Also MM....she was given the one year ..because she is a Thai national...just to add to the confusion...


  5. I thought your wife was Thai? :confused:

  6. Hi,

     

    What is the food like? Oh, and an odd question perhaps, but is the menu in Thai, English or both?

     

    Sanuk!

     

     

    English and Thai Languages ....food ok well presented but the Thia's were more interested in the view ..i think the menue scared them :grinyes:

    Expensive for what it is ...we didn't pay this time..i am sure i saw my brother in law fork out about 9 1000 bills and not much change...

     

    A very special occasion visit i feel...


  7. Yes ..but no signs well i didn't notice any ..still i did not take any inside the building.. i wanted to take some of the Market ..no where in the world could you do that..TIT

     

     

     

    We had to get an extension of our 30day entry stamp today....due to floods Immigration asks you to call 1111 and they give directions to where to go get extensions 90 day reporting etc ..

    This place is temporary and houses immigration departments of the provinces that can not open so it is a busy little place ..

     

    They hand out plastic numbers to keep track of you..however at the end when they are about to give your docs back they call out in Thai..no electronic number system in place.

     

    Allow a good 2.5 hours and if you can get copies of passports departure cards etc before arriving as there is no copier in this complex....you can go over the road and use one in 7/11..long ques however.

    1900Thb for my 60 day extension and my wife got a one year also 1900 THb..but as we go back to OZ in two weeks all will need to be done all over ..we come back mid January for two months again..

     

    Oh... bring a pen as they are a rare item here ...


  8. Based on what I've seen on telly, and reading Stick's column, things should be nicely cleaned up for you post-flood by the time you arrive. This is one of the few times I wouldnt want to be in central BKK, and the vision he paints of traffic heading south is like something from the Apocalypse.

     

     

     

    We have done that run twice since arriving on October 21...and chaos is not strong enough.. :grinyes: double chaos maybe :neener:
