Re: RE: Re: Hua Hin police to get tough on motorbike helmets

If you think it's bad now wait until more big bikes are on the road. I see that Honda, Kawasaki and Ducati have show rooms between Hua Hin and Cha Am. What is bad about that? People who ride what you call “big bikes” are very likely to use crash helmets as they are more knowledgable about riding mo...

Re: RE: Re: Bangkok Post editor removed from role

Prayut is trying to fix the problems, but he is one man, and corruption is very deeply-rooted here. I think he should have started with reform of the police, but there is considerable opposition to overcome, and he cannot be sure he has the total backing of the NCPO. He isn't even able to end corru...

Re: Dirty municipal water

Ours comes via a ginormous tank, so the muck will settle at the bottom of the tank. However, I drove past a Soi 94 hotel yesterday when a bucket full of horrible grey water was thrown across in front of me. I parked outside that same hotel today, when bucket after bucket of grey water was being dis...

Re: Dirty municipal water

Bringing up an old post since it is still relevant where we live. We live in Soi 94 and now the water is again dirty. It has a brownish color and this is exactly what happened last year too. In this thread the OP says it happened around May 5th. in 2012, and now I have seen two years in a row that t...

I find it strange that True does not advertise this. Their sporting "highlight" for June are the NBA play-offs. Well, good luck with that, ha ha.
Any point of advertising something all providers of tv have really? It is going to be on the public Thai channels.

Re: House market in Hua Hin

I would think that exchange rates could be a good part of how the prices changes. As an example, a few years back the Scandinavian currencies were much stronger so people could afford to pay more in Thai baht (I do not know about Euro, Pound and USD though). Now the prices for a lot of properties ha...

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

The new SUVs may be based on the pick-up chassis, but on my Pajero Sport (the newest type) there are no plate/flat springs! It is regular shock absorbers inside coiled springs. And I have been on long drives from Hua Hin up north and south and imho it is very nice to drive indeed. Even better after ...

Re: Closing Times in Hua Hin

This closing time thing seems a little exaggerated to me, when I see bars advertising Champions League, live starting at 01:45 tonight. It's really stupid. Other places matches in Champions League is a sure thing for extra income for bars and restaurants. Here in Hua Hin the bars must close when Ch...

Re: What happened to West 94St Pub

The owners of the property in Soi 94 wouldn't extend the lease by only 1 or 2 months, only by a year. So since they have planned to move to the premises next to Villa Market close to San Paolo, they chose to close end of this month. The new West 94 will open either end of April /early May according ...

Re: Soi 41 shooting leaves one dead

The two discos, Cat and Polo were not open at all. All this was becausenof the shooting in Soi 41 according to many people I asked, including several...
