Re: Hua Hin hotels push airport redevelopment

Thanks Nereus, never thought about that. What size aircraft can land at HH Airport? Can't see international flights being viable unless they fly in and out full, or almost full. Cost of immigration facilities won't be cheap either. It would take a lot of punters to make international airlines to ru...

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

But, But, But they not pay! In my Condo in Bangkok they installed a fire alarm system a couple, maybe three years ago. Every week for the first year the idiots were "testing" it without any warning. It then became about once a month, and now I cannot recall WHEN it was last tested. If it is ever use...

Re: Retirement extension Foreign Currency Account ?

Well, there you go then. Ask 10 different people and get 10 different answers. Do what Lomuamart has suggested, but then hope that the officer that told you it is acceptable is the boss on the day that you go to do it!

Re: Retirement extension Foreign Currency Account ?

No, I was told that it has to be in Thai Baht. You can use a term deposit account in Thai Baht, and it does not have to be accessible. That is what I use and have done so for the last 10 years. Just be aware of the qualifying time of 3 months.

Re: Hotel for 'slightly disabled with walking stick'

Malzy, I can't say how long it would take you with your restriction, but I'd say the walk to Soi 80 would be under 5 minutes for me. At Songkran, the walk from the top of Soi 80 to your hotel under constant super soaker attack and with severe traffic blockages was easily completed in under 5 minute...
