Re: Knee Replacement

I think I saw a price for knee /hip replacement advertised in BKK hospital of 390,000. As for quality, I don't know of anyone who has had it done there.

Re: Govt: hellish airport immigration queues must end

I was stuck in the queue for 2 hours on Fri 28th July. I only saw 6 desks open in the particular section I was in. When I eventually cleared immigration, I noticed that there was a long queue for the priority pass! The reason given was that it was the King's birthday. I noticed on facebook that the ...

Re: Govt approves ten year visas for wealthy over-50s

I checked BUPA for health insurance, this could cost over 80,000 a year to include outpatient insurance. One question is that could the cash required be in a foreign currency bank account in Thailand? I agree that this would not replace the existing retirement visa, and would be a ploy to suck more ...

Re: Soi 80 bar map

Nok Yung Coffee appears to have replaced Nalida's, but there are still some signs indicating Nalida's. Can anybody confirm please? No photo for this one. This one seems to b a management buy out - the same woman is running it, but with other staff. Still the same breakfast menu with pretty strong co...

Re: Rip Off Hua Hin

Don't know what the price of Apple computers has to do with the cost of living in Hua Hin - but when I first started living here, the Hua Hin Shopping mall was the principle shopping centre. They had just completed the three lane highway from Cha-Am to Hua Hin. We had to travel to Big C at Petchabur...

Re: foreign pedestrian killed ourside market village this afternoon

There is a 'on-request' traffic light at BKK Hospital--MUCH MUCH MUCH more need at MV As BB said, these lights are switched off more often than on. When they are switched on, believe it or not, I reckon that 95% of traffic does stop at the red lights. I passed the crossing at MV earlier this aftern...

There were no bars in Soi 80 / Soi hotpot when I lived there before 2000, only the restaurant about half way up existed.

Re: Oldest bar in hua hin

I believe the first bar opened in the Bintabaht was where Da's bar is just now, on the corner opposite Pink Panther (which used to be Rose Bar). King bar was the Universal Joint in the old days, and Berny must be the longest surviving bar owner. His first bar was where Toto Toro is now. As for the l...

Hua Hin Tuk Tuk minimum prices

Seems like the minimum price for a tuk tuk has gone up from 100 Baht to 150 Baht since the new year. This 50% hike is a bit extortionate especially as fuel prices have fallen!

Water shortage in Hua Hin

We just noticed today that our water tank was almost empty. As I had to pay the water bill anyway, I asked and was told that the Hua Hin water reserve was almost empty, and that the pipeline from Pranburi was under repair. The pipeline should be back in the next 2 days.
