Re: Canadians in Hua Hin?

Im from ON. Generally Thai and HH are not high on the list of retirement destinations for people who want to start businesses--there are multiple barriers to this.

Re: Cambodia clamps down on expat visas

The whole phenomena of expats working on-line is a very tricky one.
when living there I thought the problem of the derelict ex-pat druggies was a BIG problem

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

I am a non-smoker and detest the smell. I only go to bars with an open air feel as the no smoking in bars is now being ignored BUT--I walk on the beach several times a week and on Mondays do my own little clean up of plasic bottles candy wrappers etc--Cig buts are not a problem.

Re: Thai ex-PM fails to show for verdict

Reminds me--a celebrity who wished peace and quiet was checking in at Claridge's hotel in London. He said to the manager--by the way, as for me staying here "hush" is the word--the manager replied--Sir, at "Claridges "Hush" is always the word.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

I was there today, road closed fora LONG time to allow a train to pass, then the gate lifted, what a cavalry charge, I wanted to go straight ahead up 88 but got swept araound to make an unwanted left turn, but did not feel threatened.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

Just a point about the roundabout at S88--it seems to be working better, still unruly by western standards but my journies through it recently have been smooth.

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

I can drink tonic water quite happily, but alas all bars closed, even for non-alcoholic drinks.
I think that the no-alcohol is not the main point--its that places of fun have to close.

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

The most bizarre is when they follow you, but when you ask a question about locating something they have a way of waving their hand in a general direction but NOT pointing and that general direction often turns out to be incorrect.

Re: The Beer Thread

Even in China a communist controlled dictatorship, the craft brewery movement has caught fire and there are many brewpubs making/selling carefully sourced ingredients and with a guarantee of purity similar to Germany.
