Hello! Thanks for your edits on several Thai destinations! I just want to say that entering information about getting in or out somewhere is placed under "Get in" (and not under "Get out"). Yes, I know it's somewhat confusing, but "Get out" is only used as a list of cities a traveller could go next. Bangkok#Get out is an example of what a "Get out" section should look like. Thanks! --Globe-trotter 14:39, 13 December 2011 (EST)

Hi Avemario! I'm not sure if you read my response to the message you left me on my talk page. Please send me an email to awocial (at) with the address you would like us to send you the package to. We would be very happy to do it. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Warm regards, IBAlex (talk) 18:26, 24 April 2014 (EDT)


Hey, awesome job on the Thailand page! We actually have an article dedicated to the Thai language called Thai phrasebook. Do you think your contributions on language should go there? Best! IBcaldera (talk) 12:47, 6 October 2014 (EDT)

Hi! Thanx for the comment. Having a critical look at things - I guess I am not so much inclined to try to teach people to understand the Thai language, but for the average tourist (who will not go anywhere the phrasebook page), to at least be able to read the English signs more correctly, as one thing I have noticed over there, is that if you pronounce the words as you see them written on the signs, many Thais will have no idea what you are saying.

My inclination is therefore to leave it where it is, but your call!

Another thing I do note in the Thai phrasebook pages, is that "G" and "K" are both supposedly pronounced as "K". This is not what Thai people have told me to be correct, and that in fact, both letters are pronounced the same as in English. In Thai the words for "egg"and "chicken" are "ไข่" (kai) and "ไก่" (gai) respectively. So pronouncing them both "kai" would make it difficult to know whether the chicken or the egg came first, so to speak!

Would it be possible for you to put this question to your excellent contributor to the phrasebook section, as I would like to know their point of view? There may be something I can learn here.

Hi, I added your question to the Talk:Thai phrasebook page, as requested. Adzas (talk) 06:59, 7 October 2014 (EDT)

Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok[edit]

(swept from the Pub])

Hi! I am just back from Thailand and will update Samut Songkhram, Samut Sakhon, Ratchaburi, Petchaburi, and a few other places as time permits over Christmas and New Year.

But there is another problem.................... The main airport in "Bangkok" (Suvarnabhumi) is not in Bangkok Province at all!!! It is actually in the province immediately below it, Samut Prakan. (and just over the border of Lat Krabang which is in BKK).) This can easily be confirmed by referring to Wikipedia (and many other sources).

So what do we do?

Since from what I have seen all places are written as situated. Should we move it from BKK with an easy redirection, or leave it there where it really isn't? I might add that I have updates to do on Samut Prakan also. Avemario (talk) 04:45, 23 December 2014 (EST)avemario

Hello Avemario, welcome back! We are looking forward to your updates to the articles, I am sure you had a great time exploring. With regards to the airport in Bangkok, as Suvarnabhumi airport is the main airport to reach Bangkok it should remain in the article where it is, in the description it already says that it is located about 30 km to the east of Bangkok, so we can just add Samut Prakan to the location. Thanks again for all your input! Adzas (talk) 07:10, 28 December 2014 (EST)

Showcasing your work![edit]

Hey, Avemario! Hope all is going well! As you may know we have a "Language of the month" slider on the home page, it changes every month. I think it would be great to showcase your work by placing the Thai phrasebook as August's LOTM! We'd like to place your username in the small intro message that appears in the slider if you're ok with it! Let me know, thanks! IBcaldera (talk) 15:10, 30 July 2015 (EDT)

Hi I B! No es un gran problema! I would be honoured,

My Home Page[edit]

Hi! Will someone please tell me what all the huge amount of Norton Security is on my personal homepage? Avemario (talk) 04:23, 26 December 2015 (EST)

And now 30 minutes later, I am supposed to have something from Binbin - but nothing is there that I can see. Avemario (talk) 04:42, 26 December 2015 (EST)

Hi, check your talkpage history. Binbin deleted spam. GiulioC (talk) 08:50, 26 December 2015 (EST)


Hi Avemario, thank you for reaching out on the Pub. Sorry for getting back to you a bit late. Can you please send me the pictures your friend took to my mail address ([email protected]) so that I can edit & upload them as banners of Ang Thong and Phrae (or maybe other places too). Thank you! --Binbin (talk) 10:02, 7 April 2016 (EDT)

Hi Avemario, just added banner with the pictures you sent me (really appreciate it). Please have a look here. Also please check your mail please. Thank you! --Binbin (talk) 06:54, 9 April 2016 (EDT)

Home page content suggestions[edit]

Hi Avemario, we are reaching out to users on the Travellers' Pub to offer their suggestions on what should be the features of the month for February on the Wikitravel home page. We hope for this to become a regular monthly announcement for the Pub where we ask for users to offer their input for the Destination of the Month, Off the Beaten Path, Cuisine of the Month, Language of the Month, and Landmark of the Month. I was wondering if you could please be involved in this vote? We hope for this to be a fun way for users to be able to contribute more to Wikitravel.Ncahill (talk) 14:25, 22 January 2018 (EST)
