Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I've just travelled home from Pattaya - we had some evil weather yesterday just as the show was starting. I was amazed with thunder and lightning directly overhead that the parachutists came through it, then there was a low flying plane, followed by an even lower flying helicopter before they pulled...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

Again, some are grossly overpriced, some are selling at a reasonable price. The houses near me are on sale at double their sensible market value. You have to look around and decide what is a fair price before parting with any cash.

Re: Hua Hin Recycling Facility

He drives up our street a couple of times a week with loudspeaker blaring. He buys it all. PM me your address and phone number, and I'll get Mrs BB to ask him to call in. He'll definitely buy all of the stuff you're talking about. He probably comes up your road - you just think he's selling flower p...

Re: Hua Hin Recycling Facility

Basically, wait for the recycling truck to come up your road. They will pay you for it..We sold an old fan to them a couple of weeks ago for 120 Baht. They'll take most electrical household goods.

Re: House market in Hua Hin

I think it's the same the world over. The answer is yes and no. There are good and bad - as DB says though, rent, take your time and buy something you really want, if you are sure. I've bought, I'm happy and will live here until I die, so the onsale market does not bother me. However, there are 4 ho...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

Staying in a hotel at the moment - no fans. Aircon last night for the first time in 2 months. This morning my nose is running like a tap.

OK, DM may be correct, it might be just me, but it's too much to be coincidence.

Re: International Fleet Review 2017 - Pattaya

Very disappointing - it doesn't look as though the fleet will be any more than a blip on the horizon. Security is tight - we aren't going to be allowed anywhere near the ships. They have giant screens, where you can sit and watch - no thank you - it looks as though it'll be a day relaxing by the poo...

Re: International Fleet Review 2017 - Pattaya

Well, I'm here guys - lovely view over the bay & ships from the hotel, but the word at the moment is we can go anywhere near the fleet - will confirm that later. What's the point of such a spectacle in a holiday resort if you can't enjoy it?

I would say Shiva every time, although my son tells me Kwality is every bit as good, but you'll never beat the Shiva setting.
