NEW VISA CHANGES THREAD

At a glance the changes that have occurred since the original summary are that -

Non visa entry by land or air can now be extended for 30 days for 1900 baht.
Its still the case that G7 passport holders get 30 days when entering by land whereas many other nationalities only get 15 days if they come by land border.
Authorities announced in August / September 2014 that they reserve the right to restrict the number of border runs those without visas can do. But not much evidence of this being…

Dental prophylaxis in Bangkok

I've been going to the same dentist (a prosthodontist) in Bangkok for about 15 years. He does very nice work but does not clean teeth very well (not his area of expertise). About 6 months ago, I had my teeth cleaned at Dental World in Chiang Mai and the dentist (who was a periodontist) did a very thorough job using primarily hand tools (similar to the way it's done by dental hygienists in the US).

Can anyone recommend a dentist in Bangkok who does a good job and does it the same way? Thanks!!

Accommodation suggestions and some advice on Ko Chang

Hi all!

We're a party of two married coupes, planning to go to Ko Chang next week. Would be grateful for any suggestions you guys may have for somewhere to stay. Preferences:

With that in mind, also have a couple of questions:

1) any suggestions of a house/villa that can be rented for 3-4 weeks? Would this be cheaper?
2) how likely are we to find…
