Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

It is sad, and I'm with Nereus 100% on this one.

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

No, I was asking if it was particular to Thailand? If it happens everywhere, I think it is disgusting, and I'm glad I personally never sank that low.

Farang Contempt for Thais?

Just an observation.................. My son's girlfriend is a really good worker. Cleaning is her hobby, but she's a fantastic cook as well (there is actually a thread on here where people used to rave about a restaurant where she was the cook). As an ex-employer, I would not say that about anybody...

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

Assuming you have a Thai licence, why not get an International Driving Permit. That's what my son-in-law did when he visited.

Re: NFL In London?

The 2 go hand in hand. A paying public pays to develop footballers into better footballers. As the footballers become better, more people will pay more money to watch them play. The more people watch the game, the more people that will be encouraged to play it themselves.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Thanks for trying to help me guys, but it seems there are many different answers to my question. The correct answer is that nobody knows.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

But as has been said, it doesn't confirm how many are living here, it will confirm how many are registered in Hua Hin's Tabien Bahns.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I've seen in the region of 10 figures so far, each one is different, and none say how the population is calculated.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I believe that to get the 30 baht medicare system, you can only use the hospital where you are registered. My daughters were originally on a tabien baan in BKK and when we moved to HH they had to be on the tabien bahn here in order to use the 30 baht scheme. I was also under that impression, but my...

So my daughter isn't part of the stats, and neither am I :?

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I've tried to follow that information (which I also missed :oops: ), but it takes me to a completely different set of figures - about 25% below the Wiki statement.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Yes, I don't doubt it, but Wikipedia gives anybody the ability to change those figures to whatever they want them to read. There is no mention of where those figures come from, nor the date they were compiled. I see there was a census back in 2010 - has there been one since. Didn't people have to go...

Re: Security at Hua Hin to be stepped up for high season

Maybe the explanation is not 100%, but would you rather they did nothing if there is a growing risk, whatever it is?

Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Does anybody know the approximate population of Hua Hin please? I've been thinking about this for a couple of days, and have drawn my own conclusion that it must be an impossible question e.g. my granddaughters are born and bred in Hua Hin, yet they are on my daughter's Tabien Bahn showing them as b...
