the area around Sadao near the border is booming with 5 star clubs, restaurants & hotels that are equal to what you find in Bangkok,   ALL for the single male Malay "tourists"
 

i see nothing that has been cleaned up in the sex industry.

other than the fact, according to the thai goverment, prostitution does not exist in Pattaya

I don't mind. Not at all.

 

It's the Pattaya bar scene and the night life in general that I go for. It's become like a home from home for me.

 

I keep my room on all the time and I get a reduced rate which makes it financially viable, or it used to. I have several friends there, mainly falangs but also a few Thai women who work in the bars.

 

I got my first non imm O visa in 2007 and stay each time for 80 - 90 days and then go back to the UK for 2 or 3 months. I'm retired and receive state and private pensions.

 

I can eat sh!t if you put sugar on it so the food is of little consequence and the only times I've been to a temple have been for the funerals of a couple of ex pat chums.

 

I've been to Cebu and Davao in the PI but did not rate it and do not have the inclination at my age to explore possible greener pastures if I can still visit Thailand.

 

I can eat sh!t if you put sugar on it........I Bet it's NOT Very Tasty though,Is it ??

Unfortunately, along with the 2 Bangkok airports, Phuket is known as a rather difficult entry point. You'll probably be ok, but I would bring as much supporting documentation and cash as possible.

Good luck.

ugh lol what documents should i bring? i don't plan on bringing cash since my debit card doesn't charge any fees. I guess a bank statement? 

 

Thanks

I had a similar situation, almost twice now. My TV's issued by London who raised no objections, yet when I arrived in BKK was almost detained on both occasions, despite spending long periods of time out of the country.

 

It seems that whether you are approved your Visa does not matter, what matters is luck on which IO you get. For anyone that looks like they are living in Thailand on a tourist visa they will try to refuse you entry, regardless of whether you pass the criteria.  

It isn't only tourist visas. Non 'O's are gradually coming under suspicion too. I have yet to be refused entry, but lately at border points in the south, I have this feeling that they are just itching to bring the hammer down but the time is not right. Yet.

On a side note: I have an ATM card from Aus that refunds all ATM and foreign transaction fees plus gives current XE rate on withdarwals. If there's any aussies here check out the ING Everyday account

Really? Why would that be? Or are you one of those “they do not want us here” type?

Agree, I always arrive in heavier Western clothes at airport immigration since it's lighter to wear them than carry them, and also due to the fact that aircraft temperatures are unpredictable. Nothing worse than trying to nap on a long haul flight when the aircon is set too cold - I even travel with a scarf in my carry on bag. 

If I have found a flight to cold or to hot I inform the cabin staff and they change the temperature. Never been refused. 
Had a freaky flight once where I sat by the emergency door which unbeknown to me was leaking in cold air. When I got up to hit the bathroom I fell onto the floor because my feet were numb and had no feeling. Unfortunately the flight was full so they couldn’t move me. I spent the rest of the flight with my feet and legs wrapped in many blankets. If I had bitched about the whole thing I might have got a free flight in the future.....but otherwise nothing. I think it was a Continental flight.

There is a rule that the airline that brought you to Thailand is responsible for your removal. He arrived on British Airways. I doubt BA has flights from Bangkok to Vietnam, so that would not have been an option.

The reason that Thailand immigration, or the immigration authority of any country, and an airline generally send one back to one's "home country" is because one is guaranteed entry into one's home (passport) country

 

For example, if one tries to enter Thailand, or any country, by air and one is denied, the airline isn't likely to go along with allowing one to go to, for example, Vietnam, because, unless one planned to visit Vietnam and has a visa, Vietnam would deny entry and the airline would be in the same position as it was when one was denied entry to Thailand.

 

Now if one holds a visa which allows residency in another country, for example, a Philippines Special Resident Retiree Visa (SRRV), one could likely convince the airline to allow one to buy a ticket to Manila because an SRRV holder is not very likely to be denied entry.

 

Or, likely simpler and less expensive for most folks, is to get a visa for a neighboring country prior to leaving one's home country; not terribly expensive and having that would give one a chance to convince an airline to allow one to buy a ticket for that country rather than having to go to the greater expense and long flight of going back home.

 

At the end of the day, airlines don't want the uncertainty of shuttling a passenger to-and-fro trying to find a country that will allow them to enter - just ship him back home and be done with him

I am reporting my experiences as a Thaivisa member in good standing since 2006. My suspicions may be wrong, but let the readership decide for themselves. 

My posting record is there for anyone interested to see.

It’s a scandal and scam to continually allow consulates to take money for visa after inspecting passport it and then its rejected at the border ! Don’t give me the bull about different parts of officialdom ! They both know very well what’s going on !

How long time have you spent in and out of Thailand?
