  1. For me : Grab/Bolt? I round up but about 10% Grab food delivery? Nothing. Restaurant? If service charge zero. If no service charge then I leave some the change. Foot massage? Only the dog is allowed to lick my feet If paying by credit card I never tip.
  2. I took a trip to Khao Yai National Park with my son last year, 9 pounds each to get in. I also had to pay for the car just over a quid and then 4 quid each to pitch the tent. Rained all night, just like the UK.
  3. I think the crux to this is how you earn your income, if UK payroll PAYE then asking your employer to pay you as an invoiced consultant or whatever directly offshore without tax deducted would negate the need for the future UK tax bill (obviously dont exceed the UK allowed working days if you are using test 1 of non-resident test). Obviously Thailand is very lax on checks at this end, which makes tax avoidance very "easy" esp if you are over 50 or take the elite option if you are willing to fund that. I would say a large portion of Brits do this already. I have no experience with the split yea
  4. Locked indoors I actually drink more than when the pubs are open. When the pubs were open I drank 2 or 3 times a week, now its everyday.
  5. Prices have not gone up in my northern village for about 10 years. I looked at a website the other day that said prices in my area had gone up 13.4% in the last year BUT prices are still the same on those places for sale. Its a conundrum.
  6. I don't disagree with you, but a not bit out of the frying pan into the fire :+)
  7. With Emirates its mainly A380s so you know what the standard is, with Qatar you need to check what plane they are going to fly on your route, they still have some "lesser" planes. This esp relevant if you are flying in business.
  8. Travel to UK from the rest of the world if you are fully vaccinated From 4am Monday 4 October, you will qualify as fully vaccinated if you are vaccinated either: under an approved vaccination programme in the UK, Europe, USA or UK vaccine programme overseas with a full course of the Oxford/AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna or Janssen vaccines from a relevant public health body in Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bahrain, Brunei, Canada, Dominica, Israel, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan or the United A
  9. Are you sure they came from Bangkok and not Singapore?
  10. I saw the US vaccine cert the other day. Its just a card filled in by hand. Easy to fake.
  11. The Thai Astrazeneca is not officially recognised by the WHO either. As of 19 August Astra had NOT been submitted to WHO for recognition. The ones (Astra vaccines) recognised by WHO are UK, Europe, Korea, Japan, Australia, USA, China. Astrazeneca Thailand needs to pull out its finger, it promised it was going to apply on 20 August but has been silent since then on registration. They seem to be arguing that a name change to Vazrevria should be the way to go but WHO already recognises the name. Astra and its other partners have shot themselves in the foot by already regi
  12. They probably got a good offer to let someone in. Everything is potentially for sale at a price it would seem from all the other RTP and judicial related incidents.
  13. Don't let the Brits in at all without quarantine until the Brits here can go back home without quarantine :+)
