Re: Sheraton Hua Hin - Holiday from Hell

Now you say Novotel locally is your favourite. I find it interesting that I have been tainted by some exceptionally bad experiences in the UK, and I've brought that bias to Thailand with me, even though the only similarity must be the brand name. I have no love for the Novotel brand. Well over 1,00...

Yaikka- If you're living there, you must know if there is a place within walking distance to rent a motorbike?

Re: Blue Lagoon Hua Hin

So can a guest staying at the Sheraton just walk over and use the pool at Blue Lagoon?

Re: Whale Shark off Bang Saphan

Went fishing yesterday here in Bang Saphan. Two of us got about 35 dorado. The whale shark hung out, back and forth, for a few hours. It would come by, circle the boat, and take off. Dorado? As in Mahi Mahi? Didn't know they existed down there. Are they common in those parts and only in the summer?...

Re: Cha-am Fishing Park

Thanks, Big Boy. I'm not familiar with the term "swim" in this context. What exactly is meant by "at each swim"? Is it like an assigned location that you must fish from? I've watched some fishing contests on UK TV where each fisherman is placed at a specific location around a pond.

Re: Cha-am Fishing Park

Looks like a blast. I might have to try it this year. Do they have a whole package for rent for some tourist like me? I'm a professional fisherman, but won't have any gear whatsoever. After rod rental do you need to buy all terminal tackle separately? I suppose it wouldn't take up too much space in ...

Coming from the Netherlands I was shocked (pleasantly) that because I spent over (not sure what the amount was, 5000 baht maybe) that I qualified for free delivery.
What store did you spend >5,000 that qualified for free delivery to the Netherlands?

Re: Best Hua Hin tailors?

Thanks all for confirming the shop in the photo I posted is correct. How long does one suggest for having a suit made here. Can I go in for multiple fittings within a 5-6 day period? This is how I've typically purchased suits in Bangkok.

Re: Best Hua Hin tailors?

The sweat shop at the top of Soi 80, has now builta showroom. As we all know the Indian tailor shops do not makwe any clothes, thais make them. You could always go direct to them but you had to buy the material yourself which was a pain, But the cost was about 30-40% less. Its not that it's is just...
