Re: Renewing UK Passport and existing visa

Lomo - did your new passport arrive?

When you sent the money, was it a Baht money order?

Did my 90 day report today and must report again within a week of my passport expiration date - I only have 82 days before that date.

Re: Hilton Hua Hin up for sale

Surely the Hilton is only managing the property. It is the owner, not Hilton, that has put it on the market.

Re: Hua Hin Golf Gossip

A different view! We had a group of 22 (2 pros and 20 ams) play Majestic Creek yesterday. All agreed the course was in good condition and the greens, whilst not at the standard of Black Mountain, Banyan, Lake View or Sea Pine, were perfectly playable. This group (their 7th year here) has played ever...

Re: Restaurant News

A couple of guests invited me for dinner at Aglio's on Naebkehard Road. I was very impressed with the food all of which appears to be mid-price range. Not crowded and easy to park. I will return.

Sarge - Your aggression is harming you not others. As "a grateful guest of Thailand" learn from your host and move on.

Re: Married in UK, are we Legally Married In Thailand?

We were married in the UK and did not register the marriage in Thailand because of the now revoked land ownership laws. We were told by the British Embassy that any marriage to a Thai national is only recognised if a Thai marriage certificate is held. We had to get a notarised and translated copy of...

Re: Passport renewal timing

I don't think so HHF. You can renew your passport and have your exisitng visa transferred to the new passport OR renew your passport and apply for the new visa a month before it expires.

Re: SKAL Charity Golf Tournament, Sept 29, 2013

How will you establish what handicaps entrants will be playing with? Visitors from other areas who do not have a playing history with any of the Hua Hin societies or clubs will be difficult to confirm what their handicap should be? Last year's Rotary competition at Banyan was won by a Thai team who...

Re: Dogs in Soi 112 !!!!

We had a problem with soi dogs and a neighbour (Thai) called the tessabahn to report the situation. Within 48 hours a "team" arrived and caught and transported all but one of the animals. It was a bit like watching Keystone Cops - an amusing spectacle.
