visa runs from samui

what ever you do stay clear fo JULIES VISA RUN i went recently and it was a rip off the 'ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE " 5,500 bahjt did not even include the ferry fare or thge cost of the visa we were taken by mini bus in a very dangerous manner by a surly thai driver to a hotel in penang all our rom were infested by cockraoches and fortunatly one of our party who works in tourism got us better rooms in fact she should have this type of business as she was the only one that we culd rely on for anything . One of ur party was robbd and had in the past been a very regular customer of julie he was penniless when julie was contacted her initial response was not my f""""""G problem after 2 nights in penang we were then taken again by mini bus back to donsak with one 5 min atop on a journey of almost 6 hours safety comes into question also the ferry that we got back to samui was an earlier ferry so there were no taxis there a pick up from julie or some contact from this very rude woman would have been nice but there was nothing. The answer is invwestigate and you can go very easily yourself............... much cheaper too!!!!!!!!

Yep - you are right. If you need an extension, you can get one in Samui. if you want another 30 days ( a "v.o.a.") then go to Ranong! A quick boat trip to a myanmar border post and back in a jiffy. This can be done in a day. They don't issue 60 day tourist visas though.

if you wish to get the three month tourist visa then you will still have to go either to penang or Kuala lumpur and all this can be done under your own steam without all these robbers taakjing your money its actually cheaper to get a bus to puket and fly to either KL or Singapore than to go with JULIES VISA RUN dont do it even for the one day visa bounce they drive like complete lunatics and she doesnt even bother to go with you to make sure everything is well in the past she always went with the parties now there is nothing to take care of you so go under your own steam safe money and possibly your life
