I went in 2005, stopped for refuelling in Dubia, 200 Regal King size for a fiver, wayhay I said and bought two thousand, like a few others (a load of Evertonians going to see a couple of matches in Bangkok).
We were duly nicked upon arrival at BK airport, told only 200 ciggies allowed, taken to a massive police station and locked up for about twelve hours. Then taken to a shady off license and ordered to change sterling to so many thousand baht, my fine worked out at £350, all the cigs except two hundred confiscated, then kicked out on the street, with all our bags/cases, didn't know where the fuck we were!
We ended up on the back of a tuk-tuk, looking for the Siam City hotel, (we didn't know it's pronounced Seeam), for fucking hours!
Still the best holiday I've ever had though!
And if you like King Prawns, you're in for a treat!
eta try the Tom-Yum soup, I wanna go back myself now
