Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

I'm sorry, I'm not answering your question, but it's very easy to do it yourself. I renewed my UK passport couple of months ago. One trip to Bangkok to hand in the paperwork, one trip back a few weeks later to pick it up. You can download the application form from the internet. I guess if an agent w...

Re: Where to get a medical certificate

If you take a wander down any main high street you should come across a doctor's clinic (they're almost as prolific as 7/11 shops). And yet you can't name or locate a single one. No, sorry, I can't because I left the area a few years ago, and things change. When I worked in the area, there were qui...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Blimey, Pete. That's a massive red blob!! The weather in Nakhon Pathom is considerably warmer today - we're back to late 20s in the degrees. Lovely weather for an al fresco Christmas lunch tomorrow.

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

The Chinese tourists shouldn't be allowed near any wildlife - they have absolutely no idea how to conduct themselves and don't follow rules. Can I back this up with evidence? Yes. We visited a national park in Nepal a few years ago. There was a bunch of Chinese tourists staying - much to the disgust...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

One thing to remember is this is NOT investing it is gambling. Totally agree, but if you gamble on a football match or a horse race and your pick doesn't win, you've lost all your money. When 'investing' in Cryptos YOU have total control of your money - you may go in too high and lose a bit, but yo...

Re: Opening a bank account which bank?

Bangkok Bank were by far the most 'foreign friendly' of all the banks we have dealt with. We managed to get a credit card with them (we did have to deposit money, so it's not really a credit card), but it does enable us to rent a car in the UK. We both have work permits, which I think swung the deal...

Re: RIP Keith Patten (Bristolian)

What sad news. I felt like I knew him, although I'd never met him, through his comments on the forum. He came across as a genuinely nice guy.

Condolences to his wife and son.
