Thanks again to Bigboy, I've now made 5 calls to the uk using 00500 and still have credit from the second 300 bht top up.
Marvellous.

Huge number of police officers on Hua Hin beach today

There were a huge number of police officers today taking photographs and talking to the vendors in front of the Hilton Hotel. None of these officers had a towel or flip-flops. What they should have done was arrested the vendor who asked me for four hundred baht to sit down on a deck chair. No joke! ...

Cheap prefix code for calling the uk

I just spent 300 bht on a 3 to 4 minutes call to the uk using 001 44 thinking this was cheaper.
Is there one better because as much as I love my drinking buddies in Scotland they don't justify £7 per call

Re: Demolition of restaurants + shops in Poon Suk road

I too remember these places as just stalls that were covered over with canvas at the end of each day. That would have been 2003 ish. More recently I ate at the Nana one a few times when I was in town in February. I noticed that the very tall thai lady who used to own the pop up bar between the Chine...

Re: Hua Hin bus station relocating?

This makes absolute sense, I arrived three or four years ago on a sonkran Saturday afternoon. The journey time from the airport to Hua Hin was as it always has been. One mile out from the Clock Tower it was bedlam, 1-2 mph, just after the clock tower 20 mins later I got off the bus much to the disma...
