Yesterday I complained to the Belgian operator; before being connected to a
live human voice I had to press about 10 digits, or how they are trying to
discourage you from lodging a complaint. The ‘she’ on the phone started
saying that there was nothing wrong with access to country code 66, but I
gave her a number she could test. I suspected already that there was an
administrative (financial) problem between Thai and Belgian operator which
was technically blocking the calls.
After receiving the message you just sent me I dialled, without much
conviction or hope, the hotel in Chiang Mai and after a few rings I got a

Thanks for your response.
I know of course that from abroad the 0 in front of 53 should not be used.
I just tried the hotel number in Chiang Mai and it is again the some story,
2 rings followed by a (to me) not understandable voice message.
The number I have been trying is 00 66 53 243915 Rimping Village Hotel. As I
am a regular customer in that hotel I was actually intending to send them an
email to inform them that they cannot be reached from abroad, and asking
them to inform their local operator.
I just tried another hotel where I go every year in the Phuket zone and it
is the same story: 00 66 76 428900 Khaolak Beach Resort.
I cannot but conclude that there is something wrong within the Thai network,
at least with the access from abroad.
