Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

By the way, this may not be of any interest, but all the popular Bar girls will take the opportunity to visit their family in the Issan villages.

Re: Flight to Thailand bargains

Buffets at an Indian Airport--I am not squeamish or super careful, but I think I would skip that one. Take a couple of Kit-Kats with me.

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

You have to understand that the govt does not wish Foreigners to drink during these days.
You can, of course, make your own arrangements, buying beer or liquor beforehand and relax at your hotel.
A few back-street bars or bars out of town, where Thai people drink, may be open, but they are no fun.

Re: Flight to Thailand bargains

My last trip i looked at the best deals I could find online, went into a travel agent here and said, beat this. They couldn't, they were...

Re: Trip report: China 2017

A Chinese friend who lived in London where queuing is a national pastime said something that made sense. If you are in a Q for bread in London, it may be a long wait, but you will get bread. In China it was never like that, there was never enough bread. So everybody scrambled. Now there is enough br...

Re: ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK Movies at Hua Hin Cinema

As opposed to Steve I really liked the DUNKIRK movie. It certainly was confusing, Nolan's answer to that was that it WAS confusing for every one there. The three different non-sequential time-lines did add to this. It was refreshing to see a war movie with no feel-good moments, no pretty-boys and no...

There was general agreement on 45. The baht is below that and unlikely to rise very much, but none of them ha...
