And there's a road good enough in Thailand for pedal to the metal and hit the speedo endstop?

Re: danger or fear mongering?

I've been riding motorbikes of all kinds since 1970. I would not recommend it. There are plenty of Taxi type vehicles running around.

I like the Tuk-tuks.

Re: Tourists blamed for trashing Hua Hin

I think they were trying to tout a successful NY holiday, but the intent got lost in translation from Thai to English.

Re: Any English speaking people in Hua Hin pls read

In the US shopping malls are where teens meet other than school.

Go to Bluport and walk around. Tons of foreigners there. Just need to approach them and not be shy.

Same goes with Market Village.

They should really print a retraction and print the facts.

My Brother and made a list of all the Thai places in Tucson and went to each over a 2 month period until we found one that tasted authentic.

Thai Food Around the World

I thought this might be interesting. Thai food in the US is usually very flavorful and quite colorful. Generally consisting of a healthy portion of lean meat and vegetables with a small portion of rice as a side dish. Typically it's not spicy unless you ask for it with some heat. When I was in Phuke...

Re: Hua Hin Farang- food prices

I find prices here on farang food on par with the US most of the time.

Depending what is ordered, it will be imported. Like a good steak, or cod, or lobster with claws.

Re: Hua Hin seafood restaurants slammed for overcharging

Look at the recent sea conditions. Not good for fishing, especially by the smaller boats.

Supply is down and prices will go up.
