Re: The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency thread

Crypto transaction are small potatoes at the moment however already governments are banning or trying to tax transactions. Honestly, I can't see governments allowing the untraceable untaxable transactions to continue. They need the tax dollars there is no way it will be allowed to continue without i...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

Honestly the idea purchasing a house in Hua Hin is a bit scary with all the reports of party houses. Are there gated villages that prevent the owners from ruining their neighbors peace by renting as a party house? Can such rules be enforced or part of a legal contract?

Re: Drivers License Dec. 7 2016

You need the letter from immigration and doctors note plus copies of passport. I listened to someone who lived here many years and said as I resided here I didn't need the letter from immigration, WRONG I did. So after diving all the way back to immigration from Pranburi and getting back to the lic...

Re: Mitsubishi Hua Hin

I can't comment on purchases through the HH dealer but their service is terrible. They made a mistake installing my clutch and then fed me a line of BS when I called them out on it saying I need more parts. Finally the service manager admitted the installation was done incorrectly. Making a mistake ...

Re: New demands from Hua Hin immigration for marriage extension

The first time I did an extension based on marriage they asked for a witness. That was 3 years ago in HH my wife and I had been married 12 years at the time and have two children together. I think its a random thing based on which officer you get. Of course the second time we gave them a small donat...

Re: Non immigrant O visa renewal

Takes only 30 minutes to extend if you have the paperwork. Have a basic hand drawn map to your residence ready and the photos you are good to go. The lady who does the photo copies will tell you what you need assuming you are using HH office. Don't worry about reporting leaving the country through i...

Re: Rough Cost of 6 x 6 m Storage Shed

The shed will be out at an acreage so it doesn't need to be fancy. All steel and concrete construction using the large Thai style cinder blocks and a metal roof.

Re: Electric Cars

With populations moving to live in the cities it will be interesting what solutions governments will come up with to be able to charge electric cars. Look at Bangkok for example. Parking in near impossible to find and often people double park. Can you imagine asking Thais to share power outlets. I k...

Re: Legal status of illegal vehicle

My dash cam connects via wifi to my phone. In the event of an accident a copy of the video will be on Youtube before I give it to the insurance guy and/or cop. I will let them see it too so they know its online. One can never be too sure what collusion is going on between the police and insurance rep.
