Re Postage - 7000 miles for 2.59 KG at a price of Baht 1660 - not too bad really. DHS might be more Baht but possibly, better service next time. I have a Pal who uses DHL regularly. and says they are ok. Good luck.

I agree it not a bad price overall.
Just went to DHL office 100 yardsfrom main Tesco lotus and it was shut. will try again.

on the subject of thai post i sent a birthday card to my old man in the uk on Monday and it arrived Friday same week. so excellent service for 27 thb

DHL is justafter Tesco in Mittraphap Road.

Try also the Post Office EMS service.

Thaiga. Where's Mittraparb ? Sorry.
Dodgey Dave. Please don't talk to me about Thai Post ! Before Christmas, the Postman on our 'round' left the job. Since then. No post ! I am missing lots. My Missis and the Gal next door visited the Chok Chai office and rang many times. I went in and jollied about and they let me search around the sorting office, but no luck. Think it's in a bag in a ditch somewhere. Mai pen lai but ...... !
OK in the other direction though.
Christmas cards from here, 18 baht for 7000 miles but 60p approx. to send next door in UK.
Good luck
