Re: Getting to HH from Khanom near Surat Thani

Thanks for the input brianks, I'll investigate bus timings etc, but isn't there massive road works and big contra flows? I spoke with Toon who just sent his wife to HH and he said train was better. Charlie from CC beach bar said the winds 120+ kph with horizontal rain and waves that came into the th...

I'm guessing that the lack of googlabl...

Re: Thai bank account on a tourist visa... possible?

TY Richard, address will be a challenge as it we will only have the holiday rental place, and nothing with our name at that address.

Essentially retired but 'something to do'

WeI've tried retiring once before and got bored doodooless, even in paradise I reckon I'd be bored... but with a tan. So not a major income source, more a pastime that earned a few bob. Given that serious poop you can be in for working without a permit, would the authorities accept a small dog kenne...

Legality of setting up a dog care centre

Bumping an old thread rather than start a new one. Would a small kennels (boarding and breeding) be a viable business in Hua Hin, and would it be possible to apply for a WP to set one up?

Re: Another newb'

I understand what you mean Dannie, my 1st Thai trip was Pattaya in '95 for a week and I really didn't like it much, but we left there and spent 4 days in BKK, then 2 weeks in Koh Samui and I was hooked. Since then I have been back to BKK, Chiang Mai, Phuket twice and HH last year. I am warming to La...

Re: Another newb'

After day 3 I was considering it, but your right we paid for the apartment when we arrived and a car for 2 weeks too. Then we have the flights, as we are routed Langkawi - Singa, Singa - Zurich. It's not that Langkawi is bad, it's ok.... just not as good as Thailand.
