Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

That's how strange it is. We were cooking in the sun down the road in Bangsaen for the wife's 42K marathon. Only some spitting in the afternoon. Back in Rayong later on and the roads had been flooded and broken trees everywhere from wind gusts. Rain off and on all day today with more coming from the...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

^ Yes, I looked high and low on several threads as I thought I had seen it posted before also. Couldn't find it. A bit dilution of the topic for sure, but interesting for a Friday evening. If I find the "old photo/video" thread, I'll move it. Pete

Re: Which Pick-Up Truck?

I remember reading they scrapped that "no riding in the back" law completely after an up-country uprising of complaints? Probably more accurate to say "a delay in implementation" which probably means we'll never hear about it again. Pete

Re: Which Pick-Up Truck?

^^^ It's the price and flexibility that sells to the Thai masses.

The bad thing is that the MIB love to stop pick-up's more than any other type of vehicle, especially if the back is covered. Just about every drug smuggling story I read in the papers has a pick-up involved. Pete

Re: Which Pick-Up Truck?

I agree about the Hilux/Ranger look-alike. The selling point for me would be build quality and service, both quantity of locations and staff quality. Very hard to beat Honda and Toyota service facilities here.

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

That kind of looks like a nice place to hang out in the shade. Maybe the beer girls and BBQ grills will be added later. :mrgreen:

Kind of weird to have a hospital logo on a smoking tent. I can imagine BHHH may not even know how it's being used. :shock: Pete :cheers:

Re: Renting A House In Hua Hin

"3. Who holds the deposit? Landlord or agent? Agent." I would be careful with this aspect. If during the term of the lease the agent goes out of business, you as the lessor would then be liable for the return of any refundable deposit to the lessee. Of course this would come out of your pocket as t...
