  1. As end of amnesty is getting near it is time to plan the trip back to Europe as there are no other open destinations nearby.

     

    Daily cancellations are still very high for inbound/outbound flights, what seems to be the most reliable route/airline to book in advance from Bangkok to any destination in western Europe? (which airline to avoid?)

    I suspect prices will skyrocket as planes are getting filled up around the deadline date, so I would prefer to book asap.

  2. I have 5 years experience farming Thai crickets and can confirm it is a good business which has made my Thai girlfriend's family financially stable without needing any support.

    When we first met I was quite curious about the small existing cricket hustle they were doing from home as the picture above. they had a total of 11 "cricket-circles" which provided a total of between 25-40kg at 130 THB/kg (3250-5200 THB) of crickets per month. They had no problem selling everything every month and the demand far outweighed the supply.  

     

    Knowing the numbers I was obviously wondering why they did not expand their current cricket hustle into a real business. The answer was simple - not enough space under the roof and it had never crossed their minds to build more roof space.

     

    I asked, what if you had 400kg of crickets a month, could you still sell it all? The answer was an easy yes. So a few calculations later I convinced her family to sell half their life savings in gold worth 100k THB (you know this is not something Thais take lightly!) and we hired some engineers to build two cricket farms on some of their empty land.

    4 years later, with the 100K investment I forced them to make, they are now making between 30-40k THB a month in profits (from the previous 10k factory job from my gfs father, and a couple 1000 a month from her stay-at-home mother growing some veggies and fruits)

In addition, we understand Cambodian Embassies will only accept applications for diplomatic, official, and business visas and will not issue tourist or other visas to enter Cambodia at this time.

    Cambodia, 

    I read somewhere you need to deposit $3000 in a cambodian bank account in order to enter, is there some more information regarding this requirement?

    Go to Immigration. Tell them you have been earning your living in Thailand by gambling online. Theyll soon find you a way of staying here😉

    Who said anything about gambling... thanks for the helpful reply, I am sure your other 5000 posts are just as insightful. I pay my taxes and stay well within the thai law. Not all legal fields of work will grant you a work permit here 🙂
