Re: B700m park to honour Thai kings in Hua Hin

There is a big sign saying Farangs have to report to somebody before entering, but I've never bothered.

Re: B700m park to honour Thai kings in Hua Hin

I always call in as I pass with visitors - it's always a very quick stop. They always say the statues are amazing, but once you've seen them, you've seen them. Your statement had me thinking I'd been rushing them, and missing something really amazing.

Re: B700m park to honour Thai kings in Hua Hin

I'm fascinated by that statement oakdale. What do you find to do there that takes longer than 15 minutes?

Thanks Steve, I suspected fake news from the start. Some of the other forums are notorious for it.

Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

I'm still interested to hear Steve's report from his beach visit today.

IMHO the sign that everybody is talking about might have been photoshopped into the picture. The sign legs don't look right for a beach sign, and there's a flash of white above the sign that doesn't look right.

Re: Easy fishing in Hua Hin

Just back from the beach, and I can confirm a horrible stench (not the same as a couple of nights ago). Reports I'd read so far had talked of baby fish. Yes, there were a lot of small fish on the beach (nowhere near as many as there were in the photos, so somebody has done a great clearing jub). Wha...

Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

I've just come back from my usual Soi 75 to Marakesh walk. No sign of any such signs on that stretch.

I'm not saying it is this time, but we have to remember that some other forums are notorious for their fake news. Hopefully Steve can confirm one way or another tomorrow.

I won't be going near the Centara, but I'll be down there soon. If I see anything, I'll take a photo.

Re: Certified translation of marriage cert for yellow book

Not wanting to be negative, and I know the road to a Yellow Book is easier in Bang Saphan, but none of the documentation I had translated in Hua Hin was acceptable. Also, marriage certificate was not required when I got my Yellow Book. Being positive :wink:, I obtained my original translations from ...
