    First time post here, long time LOS traveller

    Hey guys and gals, another down-under Thailand lover here!

    Have been hitting the shores of LOS for many years and will continue to do so for many more - I hope. Will be heading to Phuket and Hua HIn in a few months in fact - CAN'T WAIT

    I must admit, I come across this forum trying to find the reason I can't get onto PI - apparently it's down.

    Everyone's braver than you Nick ... but we'll get you started on Mall escalators and work up to bungee jumping next visit, ok

    Welcome Tex. If you are into extreme sports there's all kinds in CM: zip-lines, white water rafting (gotta wait for rain), road trips and shopping Malls!
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    5555. i not sure DP does 2 levels up, you may have to come up with something a little safer

    WWTB Tex, hope you find us/info interesting enough and hang around a while even when PI is back

    Thanks all for welcome.

    I fairly much had no choice but to take the plunge off a platform with some rubber bands wrapped around my legs...It started as a conversation at the 19th hole after many beers while playing golf with one of the owners - from I'm scared of heights, to the next thing I know, I'm standing looking down at mates that just wouldn't let me hear the end of it, if I didn't jump. Block the fear and jumped..

    I've enjoyed looking around so far - some really good post and reply's and easy to navigate.

    Good job guys.

    Cheers,

    Tex.

    You will have to try Queenstown NZ which is 134 metres, or Macau which is 233 metres...what's another 183 metres!!!

    Thanks, Rivo.

    Yeah, just about to head into winter - not keen - but have a trip planned to LOS for mid July. Should be an interesting trip this time, as it's the first time I'm taking the wifey. Should be okay as long as I avoid some certain bars in Patong.. 5555
