Re: Illegal hotels to feel the heat in Hua Hin, governor promises

They've just built party houses at either end of my Soi. I must say, I don't understand what all of the party house fuss has been about. We'll be devastated if they get closed down, we've recently booked one of them for my son's wedding.

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

A bit of an own goal by Grab yesterday. My same friend was trying to get a cab for over an hour yesterday. In the end, she had to revert to her usual 300 Baht service.

Re: Ortorkor Market

The reason I said, "It looks like another giant (covered, this time) food court," is due to the vast numbers of tables and chairs situated beside each outlet. Here's a photo from inside:

Ortorkor Market Soi 51

This place opens this Friday, 25th May @ 11am. It looks like another giant (covered, this time) food court. This one is situated next door to the mini-bus station on Soi 51.

Additionally, I don't go anywhere on 2 wheels, so parking can be a problem with a car - another good reason for usin...

That has meant a 600 Baht on cost every time they want to go shopping, a bar, a restaurant, etc. Last night home to town cost 140 Baht. Town to home co...

Revenue collection from this scheme seems very active at the moment. Small numbers of BIB hiding around corners, with loads of people seemingly queuing up to contribute to the scheme. I've come across several of these small traps around town over the last week or so. It never fails to amaze me that ...

Haha, I thought that was a classic car :oops:
It was BB, basically a restored 1967 model that had been re-engineered by Jaguar.
