Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

the following gives the figures, mostly Chinese these days.

As I said I could care less if there were no tourists in Hua Hin. The first post in this thread referred to an article on international arrivals.

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

I would not agree that tourist numbers are down at all, maybe in HH they are but not overall. Personally I would be happy with no tourists.

Re: Treatment for arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis in HH?

I have no idea if the cartilage is re-growing, how can one tell? All I know is that within a few days of first treatment things were getting better, it took a few weeks before I could walk unaided. Now after 3 months I have no problems at all, still on the meds for another three months. In 2006 I ha...

Re: Treatment for arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis in HH?

I was quickly diagnosed with Septic Arthritis and it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced in my life. The doc quickly took a blood sample, tested it and confirmed wh...

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

If you stay in a private apartment via Airbnb or the likes are you covered by insurance if you get hurt in the property, I can bet most have no public liability insurance so the risk is all on you.
Use a formal property that has all the correct insurances and licences.

Re: Electric Cars

It is countries like China, Qatar and UAE that will drive change, not western countries which have so many steps to follow and hoops to jump through to get anything done. The mentioned countries leaders simply tell the government to do it and it is done.

Re: Govt crackdown on Airbnb, declares bookings illegal

Airbnb is banned in many cities; New York, Reykjavic, Amsterdam, Paris, New Orleans, Santa Monica, Ibiza, Berlin to name a few. Main reason is no payment of government taxes, no business license's, pricing local people out of the rental market.

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Agreed but this is because Ting Tong Land still relies on staff who speak little English and use bits of paper to record orders, often only writing it down after they have delivered the order.
If they wont develop it is their loss if they undercharge.

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

Does Thailand utilize the European Tachograph or something similar to track driver and vehicle usage? I seem to recall in some cases the police had identified speeding prior to an accident so maybe they have something in place.

Re: Electric Cars

The show I was watching focused on Sweden. They seem to be at the lead in Europe concerning electric vehicle use. The list of incentives for buying one is as long as your arm including free charging, free city parking, bus lane usage, free ferry passage and quite a few more. Pete :cheers: Doesn't T...
