Re: Hua Hin beach closure on Wednesdays?

Yep, It's great that the vendors get a day to fast - since they can't afford to feed their families on Wednesdays. And fantastic...Thursdays too? Great idea. Please someone hand out a management award.

Re: Hua Hin beach closure on Wednesdays?

No umbrellas, no chairs, no food....but you can take a towel to lie on like in many countries and amuse yourself. They are cleaning the beaches on Wednesday didn't you know.

Re: Soi 80 Walking Street?

I can report that Soi 80 is a walking street every Wednesday, not all of it is cut off though. About 1/4 of the way up to 3/4. They have music and I would say it works very well. :wink: Works very well !!! For whom ??? Some of them, most are not happy with this. Sorry, I was being selfish. Works fo...

Found soi 80 much more fun and particularly enjoyed Hua Hin Bar... Is this recent? So sad as I am there this time next we...

Re: Aussie Talk

G'day, this thread seems to have died like my ill-fated music thread. Wonder if I can revive it. I have finally ditched my illusional dream of ever learning Japanese, in this life anyway! It's a 24/7 enterprise. No more time for Facebook or anything else. Also you have to live in Japan for some tim...

Re: Hua Hin Beach Polo 2017

I'm sure it's just an accident that the English translation says it's 1500 but the Thai says it's free. That happens a lot.

Re: recognised

There are a number of countries that don't care where the offense is committed, they will chase you down. Not sure if UK is one of those.

Re: Hua Hin Beach - experience

I for one enjoy the time I spend under the jail like atmosphere of the umbrellas just beyond the Hilton. Chairs not perfect..."I'm not in Kansas any more" big woop Lockout look - shade is good and the breeze is fine Company....take the time to have a chat to the deck chair owners, they are interesti...

Re: Is Hua Hin safe anymore?

The ratio of good vs bad things happening after midnight reduces rapidly in any city. Personally I'm happier out late in Hua Hin than Melbourne

Re: Looking for a bar...

Hi teddyboom, I wish you luck and please let me know if you find one. The problem may be the time of year that you are visiting - May. This is typically part of the low season in LOS where there are generally less customers...and as a consequence, less services available. The pool tables at least sh...

Re: Coco Beach Club

Prices were high, but the quality was excellent. So here is the question --Is there a big demand for high quality/high priced food. I suggest you go to the Soi 88 night mkt and see the multitude of expats happily eating their 100b dinners Love the night market....will be going there in early April ...

Re: Hua Hin Beach - experience

Thanks for the replies. I was there July last year enjoying the umbrellas. Stayed at the Hilton, went out their beach stairs and about 100(?) metres along to the right. Probably about 5 sets of umbrella/beer/food vendors back then.
