Re: Sheraton Hua Hin - Holiday from Hell

I've stayed in that Novotel for couple of times, whet it was Marriot. Not bad, and if it is quiter than Sheraton - that is the hotel of choise. By the way, if some of you have to stay for a night in Moscow Domodedovo airport - Novotel is a good option.

Re: Thais rank low again at English

I've been learning English since school, plus very intensively in the University. But I started really speaking English only when travelling.

Re: Selling price of cds?

Imho, dvd - doesn't matter original or copy - would not go for more than 50b each. If you pay 200 for three in MV, and 200 for four in some markets - used dvds would not sell for more.

Re: Some Thais' perception of foreigners

Misconception of other folk and country is fair for people from all parts of the world. Especially for young ones. More especially - if you stay your first 20+ years in your motherland location under your parents' helpful wing. According to my personal observations, young people nowadays are much mo...

Re: Blue Lagoon Hua Hin

the lagoon is probably the top reason anyone would want to stay there. Right you are! The only reason we come here escaping the Russian winter. By the way, every weekend BL lives the full life - Thais come for couple of days. Usually owners fron Bangkok and renters. If you plan to rent the unit for...

For now BL has not much residents, but from mid November till mid March it is usually crowded, if not overcrowded. Some Russian families come h...

We used to buy a sheraton-pass to use its facilities in the previous years, and i always felt sorry for those who came for a quiet holiday. The only thing i c...
