I find electronics are not that cheap in thailand, especially pattaya.

 

If you are going to buy, do it in BKK.

 

TUCCOM in pattaya and similar places in Phuket are quite expensive by thai standards.

If you are going to HongKong,Singapore or Malaysia buy your electronics there, much cheaper although you must bargain hard!

Singapore is now getting quite expensive.

Hong Kong is a real case of "Buyer be ware". Just about guarantee you will not get what you think your getting. Be carefull of them changing units on you even while you watch. Swapping a damaged unit for the one you just tested out etc.

 

Bangkok can have reasonable prices. I got good deals (only slightly higher than hong kong) from teh camera shop in the computer mall in FORTUNE centre on Rachadapeisek. YOu can get particularly good deals if your willing to go for a model that is just about to be or is just superseded . If your not hyphenation about your photography then last years top of teh range may suit you as well as this years top of the range and leave you extra cash for that image stabilized lens or teh extra wide etc.

It is better to light even one candle than to live in fear of the dark.

I too find electronics in Thailand to be very high. The tarriffs (duties) placed on them by the Thai government are high. Better to get them in the west if you can. Cheaper.

Over the years we have had a number of clients come to our facility in Southern Florida from Asia (Japan, Korea, China) for training. Strangely enough among the places they want to visit is Walmart, Circuit City and/or CompUSA ... to buy electronics that were as often as not made in their own country. ... go figure ???

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
