Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Ahhhh... containers. I have a 6liter kitchen waste bin from the brabantia sort and go range. We are just the two of us... so these work ok if emptied daily... but would be useless if you have a big family or need to store it longer. The lid closes well enough so you get no smells... but flips open e...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

What does one do with wet garbage, i.e. food scraps, etc.? Here in the Netherlands we *must* seperate all rubbish... otherwise the council just wont take it... you could even get fined The 4 main categories are plastic, paper, green/ biodegradable and landfill All the wet stuff, food scraps, garden...

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

I too find that price to Cha Am very encouraging. I had to do my version of hard bargaing to get 480baht last year at this time. And I hate the back & forth with getting a price down.

Re: Treatment for arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis in HH?

Another thing to watch out for with diclofenac is... if you are on blood pressure medication it interferes with the effectiveness of the bp meds ... my gp couldn't understand why my hypertension wasn't reducing after 3 months on bp meds... turns out it was the diclofenac. Stopped them and bp was nor...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

If you stay in a private apartment via Airbnb or the likes are you covered by insurance if you get hurt in the property, I can bet most have no public liability insurance so the risk is all on you. Use a formal property that has all the correct insurances and licences. what's the difference with fa...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Takiap, you sum up my thoughts exactly! If this goes ahead, I see us going elsewhere. I always loved staying in hotels when I had little choice but to stay in hotels. Now I have the choice of a hotel or an airbnb, I go for airbnb. If Thailand starts restricting this, then I have to ask myself do I g...
