Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

All they have to do then, is get Thais to obtain a licence before driving.

The kiddie who drove his bike under my truck did not have a licence, but that was only considered a minor offence and not punished because he'd hurt his leg.

I think the goalkeeping boo-boos were more interesting. I wonder if he's following in Bruce Grobbelar's footsteps.

Re: Affordable Health Insurance For Expats

Pay the bill. Mind you, the difference is vast. A condition that cost me £6K at BH cost about £30 at HHH. Resolved in days, instead of the months that BH let it drag on. I will only go to BH these day to visit friends. I honestly believe the likes of BH makes insurance unaffordable for many of us.

Re: Hua Hin Sunset Half Marathon

I think (not sure) the clue is in the 'Coming Soon' caption above the Hua Hin event. Basically, keep checking back, the information will appear.

Re: Hua Hin Supermarkets

I make no secret of my hate of shopping, but Mrs BB drags me around (screaming) all the same. I also hate to be ripped off, so I keep a close eye on what goes into the shopping basket. For the items we regularly buy, I can honestly say that while Gourmet Market may have the odd item at a similar pri...

Re: Supermarkets

There's G Supermarket, which is often competitively price - biggest I think is near the crazy railway crossing. Also there's what I remember as probably the original Hua Hin Supermarket situated in the old shopping mall.

Re: Affordable Health Insurance For Expats

If B.B. is me, no I didn't manage to get registered in that way. I do use Hua Hin Hospital these days and am happy with their abilities/service.

I used to use Bangkok Hospital, but would have to be really desperate to go back there.
