  1. My Next Travel: Korea or Japan?

    Both amazing countries but Japan > Korea. They are quite similar in a lot of ways.
  2. Japan/Korea two week double header 2019

    Seoul is quality. I enjoyed it almost (almost) every bit as Tokyo. Only shite thing about Seoul is the amount of American soldiers who are generally bellends but they are mostly in Itaewon. Myeongdong is a cool area with a lot going on although it's more shops and restaurants than bars if that's what you are after. In Japan Osaka is a cracking city and the food is tremendous. If you have limited time I would visit Kyoto on a day trip from Osaka, maybe stay 1 night at a push. Nice city but very quiet compared to Tokyo and Osaka. Lots of temples and traditional architecture which is nice. I have been up to Hakone and down to Kobe too but tbh thought Kobe was a bit shit. Tokyo is just like a little mini planet of it's own. Back in November, can't wait.
  3. New Air Routes from Scotland 2016

    Yeah after looking at it more closely the take off from Edinburgh is actually 6.30. The late Glasgow flight still works out better for me. It's a 1 hr 45 min connection where as Edinburgh would leave me in Dubai for 4.5 hours both ways.
  4. New Air Routes from Scotland 2016

    It's roughly the the same as the Glasgow flights but they are pricey too. Emirates flights to Manchester/Birmingham tend to be cheaper but I can't be bothered with 2 changes. I've never flown Qatar as I have quite a lot of air miles with Emirates but have heard good things about them. Already booked up for July but might look at them for my Christmas flights.
  5. New Air Routes from Scotland 2016

    Emirates starting a daily direct Edinburgh to Dubai flight. Good news for me as it's easier than Glasgow. 8.15pm take off ideal too as means I can still catch my preferred connection to HK.
  6. Virgin Atlantic wifi

    £15 is a bit steep. It's only about 7/8 quid with Emirates.
  7. Thailand question

    I was in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago for the first time in 4 years. Cant believe how much it has changed. It's clear the Thai government are trying to clean up their image. Their used to be a cracking, Soi 11 off Sukhimvit road which had many great boozers - most of which have been bulldozed for a new housing development. Average pint price is about 120-130 baht a beer now in Bangkok - over £3. Couldn't believe how much the prices have rocketed. All the boozers are closed at 2am on the dot now too - it used to be an all nighter with everyone open until any hour. Lots of police patrolling the streets now too - the little pop up street bars used to be a great laugh in the early hours but they are all gone. Having said that I love Bangkok. It's a great city - absolutely mental and always lots going on. 3/4 days is plenty though. Back over to Thailand on Friday for a lads weekend in Pattaya - always an "experience"
  8. Dundee v Inverness Caledonian Thistle

    This. Haber, while shite and not the long term answer, is far better than Moussa IMO
  9. Paul Hartley Hampden bound Good luck with that. His cup record was atrocious at Dens. We were knocked out 4 cup competitions in a row from lower league sides before he was sacked - defeats to East Fife, Peterhead, league 1 Dunfermline, bottom of the championship St Mirren and a shite Rangers side who utterly pumped us and we also had a 0-0 slog at Dumbarton which we eventually won in the replay.
  10. All things Dundee FC

    My thought's on Bain are he is a slightly above average keeper for Scottish Premiership level who had gone stale in a poor team behind a defence that was continually unsettled and consistently shite. He has pulled off some of the best saves I have ever seen from a Dundee keeper and when he first come on the scene he was pretty decent in all areas. He lost a bit of confidence and seemed to get in a rut he couldn't get out of and he gradually become more error prone. I don't think he is a bad keeper though and reckon a change of scenery could see him recapture his early promise at Dens. I think the departure of his good pals Thomson, Stewart and Hemmings didn't help either. It's common knowledge he was quite close to all of these boys. As for his attitude I am unsure on that one. He did give the fans a bit of jib but I heard some of the abuse he used to take first hand and don't really blame him for some of his reactions. Us Dundee fans have a bit of a habit of trying to rewrite history when our relationship with a player or manager changes. It comes to the point where folk forget about the positives and claim the player has always been shite when it isn't the case. He is happy at Hibs, we are happy with Parish and whats done is done. Time for all parties to move on.

    Willing to make any charity bet we finish above Hamilton for the 7th season running.
  12. 2018 Holiday/ Travel plans.

    Back to Scotland next month for 2 weeks during Chinese New Year. Off to Thailand in March with my mate from Scotland then he's coming here to HK for a week then back to Thailand for a lads weekend at the end of April. Got a long weekend in June so may head down to Kuala Lumpur or Singapore then got 2 weeks in July with nothing planned as of yet but may go to Vietnam and/or Cambodia as it's close enough and cheap enough from here.
  13. Japan

    Had to fly back to Hong Kong early on the 1st so that's a pity. Always next year I suppose.
  14. Japan

    Was surprised at how quiet Tokyo was for NYE. A few temples were open and folk let off some balloons but that was about it. Think there was maybe a countdown at Shibuya crossing but really struggled to find stuff. Did see an excellent fireworks display at the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday which would have seemed a bit more apt on Sunday. I did thoroughly enjoy Christmas in Kyoto though. Went for Christmas dinner at the Hyatt Regency. Around 4500 yen for 5 courses and the quality and service was excellent. Was an absolute bargain. Then got hammered in a wee local pub beside Pontocho alley and somehow managed to win about 5000 yen out a Japanese puggy without having a clue what was going on.
  15. Japan

    In Tokyo just now having spent the last 8 days in Osaka and then Kyoto. Got the Shinkansen up here from Kyoto which was a pleasant journey with stunning views of Fuji. First time in Japan and it really is as amazing as everyone makes out. Tokyo is on a different planet to anywhere I've been.
