Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

I managed to get one from Big Kiang after the top of a palm tree landed on it. I think they charged about 450 baht. I normally avoid buying anything from there but unfortunately it was the only place I could find that sells them.

Re: Hotel/Apartment - small (4kg) dog friendly

We stayed in IBIS Hua Hin with our dog whilst looking for a house for about 1 month. It may provide a stepping stone to allow you to explore more permanent options. Finding something 'pet friendly' longer term will probably require a bit of footwork around the local area.
