    Pants House

    I was just looking through some Thai accomodation on the web and was getting used to all the slight english translation errors the other day.

    You could book a "Room" or a "Suit" (Suite) when I saw something more than usually intriguing.
    The "Rooms" were 750THB, you could get a "Suit" for 800, but for 2,000 a night you could get
    "The Pants house".
    Weeeelll....What could it be that was so much bigger and better than the Room or even the Suite..?
    If it really was "Pants" why would anyone want to pay more...
    Better yet, why would they even be telling anyone...<7>

    Then the penny dropped....

    The best room in the house was on the top floor.....

    [SIZE="1"]"The Penthouse"..[/SIZE]
    And where the hell was Biggles.....?....when you needed him last Saturday....?

    There is a largish hotel here in Kamala called The Print Hotel, a Swedish company had built.

    The name seemed odd to me.
    I dont know if its just an urban myth , but Ive had more than one Swede say that its name was a translation mistake.

    The Swedish owners had requested that it actually be named the Prince Hotel...
