Re: Washer Dryer Combos

Had one at home (Indesit) and got rid of it within 2 years as it took AGES to dry the clothes. Also, you couldn't just wash a load then dry it. If you see what I mean. Say the max wash load was 5 kilos. The max drying load was less (say 3 kilos). That meant every wash had to be split into 2 loads fo...

Re: Tsunami 12 years on, 400 bodies unidentified in Thailand

Earlier this year, February and March, we were staying in a (big, renowned, well managed, 5 star) Khao Lak hotel. Bearing in mind that Khao Lak was the hardest hit place in Thailand in the 2004 tsunami the following made me laugh or made me cry or made me think TIT. While we were asleep a letter got...

Re: Emirates flight charges to BKK

as well as London, Manchester, Newcastle options it might be worth considering Emirates flights from Amsterdam. It's easy and cheap to get to from Glasgow and EK has two A380 flights departing from AMS daily. Dusseldorf also has two EK flights daily, but no idea if that's easily (and cheaply) access...

Re: Rip Off Hua Hin

Crazy88, really, is that not being a bit melodramatic? Talk of slander. In the day and age of Tripadvisor and Yelp type websites with their many millions upon millions of registered members, reviewers and readers, I ..... well I am simply at a loss for words to respond to the "slander" bit. Again th...

Re: Rip Off Hua Hin

I was not having a pop. I run a business here; 2 in fact and somebody doing a search for Hua Hin on the internet coming across one of the latest posts " Rip off Hua Hin" or " Rip off Thailand" does no business any good. You're looking at it from a businessman's perspective, which is fine, I underst...

Re: Hua Hin Markets

A couple of questions re the Pae Mai Tuesday evening market, could someone attempt to spell Pae Mai phonetically, ‘cause taxi drivers never understand what I mean because I botch it up completely. :oops: Is it spoken like Pay My or Pie May or nothing like either??? And we’d be going by taxi, we’re s...

help finding a particular thread: markets with pics

I have been plundering the forum for weeks now, to prepare for our trip to Hua HIn next year. I found a great thread about all the local markets. It gave all the market names, times and locations, and had like day time photos of the deserted markets, then a photo taken from the same spot when the ni...

I read the shoe appeal thread from last year just the other day. It's the most touching thing I have read on the net in a long long time. Well done to all involved.
