Flog was telling me about this a couple of months ago, when I was debating selling my Condo as I don't use it now due to won't take the child on a bike.

Told me to hold off, as this and Pattaya getting more 'upmarket' in general (yes I know, but relative to Pattaya) will see property at least hold if not gain in value.

Nope Don Muang before the new airport, probably 2004, I was in my partners old 300bhp Toyota Celica GT Four, on the expressway I hit about 240kph, it was almost midnight. To be fair it was probably an hour from getting on the expressway.

I agree, this was in the old days when it was a lot quieter and of course at night. I drove to Koh Chang in October and almost got lost on the new roads lol, sod driving to BKK nowdays, used to go often before in earlier years when I lived there.

Used to go often when my old partners kids still lived there (early 90's) otherwise only really went if I had to, wife's visa, picking up Mum & Dad from airport etc, over night stays I always chose hotels with parking so I could drive there and dump the motor.  Normally around Sukhumvit. Done it by bike a couple of times.
