Bargains In Chiang Rai

Recommended Posts

Being a natural romantic I bought this huge flower arrangement for the Mrs yesterday... alright, alright, it was her birthday and I hadn't bought a present, but the cost was a skinflint's dream.

300 baht, now you would have been lucky to have got a single rose for that in Australia.

Round at what I call the bus station market, they sell a bit of good quality fruit there as well.

I like the lunch restaurants around town as well. I filled up four Thais and myself for less than 200 baht, and this consisted of about ten different dishes, plus rice and bottled water. Red and green curries, fish cakes, stir fry vegetables. Aroi mak.

Speaking of supermarkets why does Big C and Top always have Coke and Coke Zero on special and not Coke Lite?

Now there's a mystery for the forums great minds to ponder. ;)

Speaking of bargains, I recently saw a Sanyo TV in Big C for 2,700 baht but waited a couple of days to make the purchase.

Two days later there was a big sale on in Big C, the Sanyo TV had a sticker, special sale price 3,000 odd baht.

I asked the guy, how come the price has gone up for the sale:annoyed:.

I don't know he replied and ran off.

There's been a couple of threads by people here about buying aircon in Chiang Rai and the vicinity, one of them quite recent. If you want to take a cruise back through the topics. :)

I think its been established that 'Portable Aircon' Real portable Aircon is not a 'bargain' on other threads elsewhere on the Forum. I doubt BIG C would stock it any anyway. Your probably best looking in one of the specialist Aircon shops of which there seems to be many. I do suspect the price will be atleast double the price of the non portable variety.

I'd be interested in the price myself.

Its on my 'to do' list; unfortunately, at the bottom . below Beers, Bars, balls, Buttocks & Bedlam :(

I thought the Bedlam sub-forum would appeal to you but you don't seem to go there much.

I know it's a bit cliquey but everyone settles in eventually.

I tried another Forum for a while. More an everything goes sort of forum. I was completely out of my depth. Had to go in with guns Blazing. It was nasty. Lots of Bipolars in there me thinks.

So I guess I'm sensitive ;-)

No , I like our Chiang Rai forum, a chat; bit of banter; subtle put down, but nothing in the big scheme of things.

I do take a look at that 'Is prostitution right or wrong' thread on General sub-forum occasionaly but I'm sort of Lost for words. Its like ' Hello' This is Thailand . I have opinions but they are not strong opinions and I'll usually see the other Guys opinion too. So I end up sitting on that fence again.

Its nice to see the Great General Ulyssess taking a bit of time out to Visit us though. I suspect you both go back a long way ;-)

Longer than I care to remember sometimes. B)

Back on topic, made a good saving today.

Mrs has been moaning with toothache for weeks and finally requested a trip to the dentist.

Tooth pulled in less than ten minutes, 260B.

I asked her if he couldn't drill/fill/repair it.

I DON'T WANT!

Jeez, some people.

I saw two portable Aircon units today in Makro. AJ brand. I didn't have a real good look but they were definately real Aircon units. One was 9500 and the other 11500. Good prices I believe. I always wondered in the past why they weren't more popular.

Makro can have some surprises. Their TVs are worth a look when on special as well.
