Re: Easy fishing in Hua Hin

But the deluge of fresh water is from the Bangkok end not local from Hua Hin.
Happens almost every year about this time.

Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

I saw a pic yesterday on another forum so can't provide a link. However it was a photo of a newly erected sign stating in English and Thai "Do not drink or distribute alcohol". The pic is claimed to have been taken on the beach in Hua Hin under a heading stating that Hua Hin police getting tough. An...

Re: Non immigrant O visa renewal

Extension based on retirement is a little more involved than that. You need proof of income or 800,000 in the bank matured for 90 days. Income letters you'll get from your embassy. There's lots of info on this forum and I'm sure someone will direct you to the relevant thread.

Re: Vasectomy anyone?

I never had no counseling sessions. My doctor arranged the appointment on asking. Of course he knew I had kids already. Maybe he stated that when making the appointment.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Interesting that the dept's published motivation for increasing tax (sin tax) was to reduce the purchase of alcohol and cigarettes yet they increase their revenue target by 7%! Tells it's own story as to their 'motivation'.

Re: Hua Hin's Finest (police in Hua Hin)

Sorry, BB. You're right of course. IDP's are for another thread. I, personally, have never had a problem with the HH police. Frustrating at times but that's the way it's done here. I have had occasions outside of HH were police were pulling a fast one. I have the number of a friendly policeman in HH...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

As far as I know, notices and announcements are always given when bars are restricted. In this case, no announcements were made which usually means 'business as usual'. However, it only takes a phone call, which many people did whereas others just assumed. (Never assume as it only makes an ass out o...

Re: Long term tick and flea treatment for dogs.

Thanks, Jesse, for that info. I've looked everywhere in HH and couldn't find it (well obviously not everywhere!)
I've tried the collars in the past and although expensive, didn't work at all for our dog. Must be different results with different dogs.

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Really? Not from the people that were 'taken in' that I've spoken to. A Thai lady told me this afternoon that you don't close a business 'out of respect'. It's more respectful to carry on as normal therefore raising the image of Thailand. Her words not mine.

Re: Cambodia clamps down on expat visas

I still pay my taxes in the UK, and I'm not entitled to any benefits there either. If I go back, it needs to be as a migrant :? :offtopic: Returning to the UK. If as a visitor, then you're entitled to nothing for six months or so. If returning to the UK to settle, benefits etc are immediate. My son...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Unbelievable. There are more bars closed today when there's no alcohol ban than when there is. So many people have ass-u-me-d without checking. The coffee shops in MV today had notices up saying 'Alcohol Free Day'. It seems not a lot of people checked. We have a pool match tonight but the other team...

Re: Bangkok Bank Visa Debit

I had to replace my damaged BB card earlier this year. If nothing's said then you get the new one immediately. I insisted that I wanted the old version. No problem they said but will take a week. Collected it a week later.
I'd heard too many problems with their 'new' card.
