Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Don't know about now, or Hua Hin, but last year in Bangkok I was paying for my granddaughter to use Grab to come home after sch...

Re: Hua Hin police to get tough on motorbike helmets

For me, the more of the idiots that stop using the same air as me, the better off the world will be! But what REALLY gets me going is the completely brainless ones that insist on carrying their unprotected kids with them. I have been using the Hin Lek Fai road over the hill just about everyday for t...

TMD director-general Wanchai Sakudomchai said Thailand officially enters the rainy season this week due to the influence of southwesterly winds. Not to sure just what "officially" exactly means?

But the structure of the driving range is still there I believe. :?
I saw that being used as a market the other week.
Yes, I had a closer look today. The steel posts are still there, looks like just the netting has been removed.

Re: Hua Hin Driving Range

Edit Nereus, I think you're thinking about Pae Mai. If so, that closed over a year ago to make way for more market facilities.
Ok, thanks Lomo. I noticed the new markets, just what is needed! But the structure of the driving range is still there I believe. :?

BMA to instal more BTS lifts

For all those that object to criticising Thailand, explain this! I no longer use the BTS for a number of reasons, but this lack of lifts is one of the main ones.
