    You can order from safetyecig.com by bank transfer or the owner would probably just meet you somewhere to buy with cash. He is a honorable guy.

    Jon,

    Use google translate to get you through the sites. The transalations aren't perfect but good enough to complete the sale.

    I hear ya... some of those translations are damn funny. And you're right the Thais are big on sending images and not too much reading/writing/buying online. They do tend to download a lot though - songs, software, movies - as long as it's free that is.

    Going back to your original post, I haven't vaped in public too much, however I have vaped in our staff office at school a few times where most of the peeps aren't Th nationals. About half are Americans and the rest split between Philippino and Indians. Oh, can't forget we have one Irishman, and a Swiss. It's pretty new to them also and I got a lot of questions about what I was doing and what not. But most had an open mind to find out what the benefits were compared to some who make judgements without even knowing all the info.

    My Th wife is cool about it and complains why I don't use it more and stop the analogs. She says it's a waist of $$ and unhealthy that I still smoke. I agree - already have 3 stents in my <3. If I could get more consistent hits from vaping I do believe I could finally stop the wretched sticks for good this time.

    One of her sisters thinks the same, that I should quit the ani's. any way I can - the other says I should just quit smoking period. Been there, done that a hundred times, but didn't hold.

    Funny thing, I was just talking to our (my wile's) family lawyer today. I wanted to ask him about the legality of e-cigs here. He'd never seen one so I brought out mine and showed him how it worked. He insisted that the vapor coming out was smoke (quan in Thai) - I said no it's vapor from a liquid (i-nam or steam in Thai). He refused to believe me so I told asked how it could be smoke if I didn't burn anything? He didn't know what to say.... :?:

    He ended up saying that if the authorities saw me vaping in a public no-smoking zone, i.e. bus stop, public building, school, etc. they'd probably fine me 500 baht. They truly need to be educated about vaping and told the difference and benefits over analogs to those of us who are struggling to quit a nasty habit. Even if it means we are only substituting one habit for another. Vaping has got to be better than tobacco!

    Yeah, not a bad place for a honeymoon - not a bad place to live either - been here since '87.

    To the original poster, kalifornia: Glad to hear you're coming, but I'd suggest you skip Pattaya and go down to Kho Samui, Kho Phangan, Kho Pee Pee, or Kho Chang. Much less commercialized - you'd enjoy it a lot better, I think.

    You're right, Thais will usually not say anything to you personally, however, they will tell their friends... etc. And in the case of smoking, most non-smokers will automatically think that the vapor coming out your mouth is smoke and think it will stink. The "mind set" is already there and they will be expecting it. Non-smokers of any country don't care to inhale second hand smoke/vapor. I add vapor here because they can't tell the difference - it's too new for them, yet.

    I agree, they will mind their own business - for the most part. The laws are similar with computer software. If they were strict on the copyright laws, over 90 % of the computer business you see would not be here today. Even in the schools. I've only ordered supplies twice and had one order through FedEx canceled because of the ban on ecigs.

    I'd like to know more about getting supplies here, siampumkin, can I PM you for those sites you mentioned?

    I have no problem with Bangkok Bank and a ATM "Be1st" card. Works pretty well on most online sites.

    ็Hi W.J., Those sites are for juice, right?

    Are there places to get good e-cigs & tanks, like eGo-C or eGo Twist, Dual Coil Tanks (DCT's)?

    I hear ของถม has some, but worried about fakes and cheap copies.

    I doubt the folks at Klongtom market would go through the trouble if selling fake out copied ecig stuff,,, and in my days they always tell you its copy and you can usually tell by the price if it is..

    Technically, ecigs are illegal in Thailand. But so far the only enforcement has been customs stopping FedEx, DHL and sometimes EMS packages from entering the Kingdom if the customs documents references ecigs or ejuice. Regular airmail is no problem. Once you have the products here there is no enforcement against using them so far. Most people that have been questioned by police explained what they were and the police were intrigued and thought a good idea. The ban was a political/business move to protect the interests of the other nicotine delivery methods (cigs and gum) from being impinged upon profit wise.
