Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

^^ 6.30? AM? It's been raining steadily here (Smorphrong) since a bit after 9 last night.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

It really is a strange location. Apparently the land is already government owned but then again so is so much land in much better locations. There is a huge expanse of land opposite Giantung supermarket near the railway crossing on Pala U which would have been a good central location for 99% but th...

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

The photo is a bit indistinct but it looks like it says ให้รถในวงเวียนไปก่อน - literally "let vehicles in the roundabout go first". วงเวียน = roundabout.

Re: New Mini-Bus Terminal Soi 51

They were installing CCTV there today. Is it actually a passenger terminal or an off street secure parking facility? Admittedly it would be great if it's a passenger terminal. Could be either. The sign doesn't actually say it's for mini buses either, just referring to fixed route passenger vehicles,...

Just to correct that. Vehicles coming from the right have priority. Same, same but different!
Right the first time - let vehicles on the roundabout go first.

Re: RE: Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Possible rain over the weekend and early next week according to several weather web sites. Maybe we're going to get an early rainy season this year? We didn't really get the dry season! Didn't really have a rainy season last year either in these parts. Pranburi dam water level was lower when I went...

Maybe it's time they introduced something like L-plates.

Federbrau has been around for years, but Thaibev have changed the recipe and relaunched it. Some people don't seem to think much of it - https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/federbrau/99854/

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

Sometimes you have to cross yellow hatched areas, such as on Petchkasem northbound to turn right into the soi next to the palace to get to Golden Place. I know that would be illegal in other places, but very often road markings in Thailand just don't make sense, as if all scenarios haven't been cons...

Re: RE: Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

I came up Soi 88 from Petchkasem across the roundabout and between the 7-11s. They have painted road markings now, and I got the distinct impression that I was not allowed between the 7-11s and had to go right or left. However, unlike yesterday, somebody gave way, so I did what didn't feel right. I...
