Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Did a 90 day and bought a re-entry permit at Bluport today. Apart from a photocopy of my passport (for re-entry), no other paperwork was required. The photos I had were redundant as they have a camera at the desk. In and out in under 15 mins. It was nice to see the staff dressed in Thai costume. Muc...

Re: Police protection racket?

I have twice in the past informed the police that my house will be empty for a week/10 days. They have given me a form of columns which the police will sign with the time at regular intervals. I was to put the form in my post box. Haven't done it for a while but the form was duly signed every few ho...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

'Party houses' are illegal and should be reported to the police. They may take no notice at first but you need to pester them. There has been some success in Hua Hin but it is an uphill struggle.

Re: Protection racket?

Should have got their name/number and reported them to the police station. Better still have the local police station number in your phone and call them while they are there. I've had similar and started to make the call. "Who you call?"...."Just checking with your boss" I replied. Suddenly they had...

Re: Electrical Problems after Storms

I can't answer your question but just a correction. The fourth wire is neutral. Earth wires (ground) are made locally (on site). Most modern houses have an earth rod of a couple of metres that provides earth to the rest of the house.

Agreed, BB.

As an aside, I love that poster/sign from Cha-Am that ginja showed. Got to be a winner!

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

A sign saying to stay within 20 meters probably does refer to start of coral line from the mean tide level, as there is a far higher risk from coral and barnacle’s than If the sign said that there'd be no confusion but the sign actually states:- 'Do not swim far over 20 meters' So -don't swim too f...

Re: Do we know which snakes are venomous?

I agree, Dannie Boy. Most westerners know that not all snakes are poisonous. Why Jamjar thinks differently is anyone's guess. However, many Thais believe that all snakes are poisonous which is not a bad philosophy when keeping yourself and others safe. I know as most others do that snakes are not da...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

I've now seen the warning signs on social media. They simply say, "Don't swim for over 20 Metres." No indication of direction or why there is a restriction. TIT It always amazes me that with all the English speaking foreigners here, a Thai will not ask for assistance when putting up posters. Loss o...

Re: Massive exodus from Bangkok - 7 deadly days of Songkran begin

In 2011 the then-government announced the following ten years as Thailand's 'Decade of Action on Road Safety'. It declared 2012 as the year of 100 percent helmet use on motorbikes. In 2015 the Department of Disaster Prevention, which is tasked with road safety in addition to problems like floods an...
