Re: More demolition in Hua Hin - Chomsin road

Thank you Pleng for the clarification - I guess the map was wrong.

I've often heard people refer to Chomsin Road, and have wondered why when I look it up. You have explained a lot :thumb:

Re: More demolition in Hua Hin - Chomsin road

Useless comment? Genuine interest regarding which road to avoid.

Re: More demolition in Hua Hin - Chomsin road

Railway crossing/Chomsin Road? I tend to use this map when I'm not sure of a road name, and the railway doesn't go near Chomsin Road. (no idea if it's you or the map that's wrong). The way you've described it to me is the crazy railway crossing on the corner of Soi 70 and Prapokklao Road - would tha...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

For the last week, I've been trying to order something for my son's business online. A common problem - even though the website is in English or Thai, any order in English is ignored. The order was worth 17,000 Baht (19,000 Baht according to their website :? ), so not to be sniffed at. This morning,...

Re: Knee Replacement

I don't normally have a good word for Bangkok Hospital, but I can't fault them for the 2 operations I had here in Hua Hin (nothing as major as a knee replacement though).

The majority of Glaswegians are nice people - they can't help their accents.

Re: Thai travelling to Thailand on UK passport

good point. The airlines insist that not only is the PP still valid but that you have 6 months left before it expires. One time I was in Cambodia and no one would sell me a ticket to BKK, as my pp had only 4 months to go. I had to come by bus. I was ready to offer baht at the border but got thru wi...

Re: Baggage at airports: Is that your bag sir?

I remember watching somebody walking off with my bag at Glasgow Airport. I ran after them and said they had my bag. It turned out I was correct, but the other guy's bag was identical, and arrived on the carousel soon after. Smiles and apologies, but so easily done.

Re: What's Happened To The Water in Hua Hin?

I guess it's pure luck of the draw. 6 years living just off Soi 94, and we've experienced 1 serious outage. However, because it serious, the army were coming around a couple of times a day with their water bowsers ensuring everybody had enough water. Fortunately we have a huge underground tank like ...

Re: Thai travelling to Thailand on UK passport

That's 3 of us who have said she can travel on her expired passport to Thailand. If you still have doubts, a quick e-mail to the airline should confirm it.

Re: Passport problem

How long are you staying Dai? If it's less than 60 days, she should be fine with her English passport (with a visit to Immigration to extend once). Stay any longer, and she needs to avoid using her British passport without first obtaining a visa. Otherwise, she will have an entry, with no exit stamp...

Re: Passport problem

I'm fairly sure that if she is coming to Thailand, her expired Thai passport will be accepted.

Re: What's Happened To The Water in Hua Hin?

There has been a mobile chicane travelling the streets warning people that there is no water - in Thai, of course. I noticed the car wash in Market Village yesterday had 2 big water bowsers parked outside, and they were feeding directly into the car wash. No idea what's going on - I suppose I'd bett...
