Re: Sheraton Hua Hin - Holiday from Hell

OP you have my empathy... Stayed at Sheraton HH for two nights in 2011. A previous visit was fine, but this one not so, for exactly the same reason. The entire hotel was taken over by a massive 3-day Indian wedding. Swimming pools were out of bounds for normal hotel guests as squads of workers built...

Re: Opinions on living at sea craze

A friend lived at Sea Craze for a while and liked everything about it... except for weekends and holidays, when children (mostly unsupervised, he noted) made quite a bit of early morning noise rampaging in the corridors and shrieking loudly in the pool. But, to be fair, kids aren't quiet; he knew yo...

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Is the hike coming into effect from tomorrow? I thought it was today, but I stocked up on beer, wine and cigarettes at the usual prices at 12:00 in Tesco.

Re: Is International Mail Taking a Long Time Getting to HH?

Re: Medical Insurance in Thailand or anywhere for that matter

Sad and horrified to read about your nephew's truly awful situation; I'm sure I speak for everyone here in wishing him the best possible recovery and strength to deal with this new chapter in his life. And thank you for giving me the nudge I need to to sort out insurance for myself. Dreading it, as ...

Uploading photo here?

Hi, I wanted to show a photo I took in HH town centre today but I can't work out how to upload it. Could someone give me step by step instructions? Earlier threads explaining how to, via Options, don't seem to be relevant to the screen I'm looking at (but that's probably just me, as sadly I'm still ...

Subsidence - geopolymer vs. underpinning?

Hi, has any property owner here used a geopolymer solution as an alternative to underpinning?
I'm keen to get advice/contact info of an experienced contractor to stabilize subsidence - any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Can I buy strong bread flour here?

That's weird seeing an early post of mine - thanks for the update! I've found Tesco branches, Villa Market, Gourmet and Makro etc. also sell strong bread flour and yeast, and I'm so glad they stock them as apart from one or two new bakeries I would struggle to get half-decent bread here. However, ev...

Re: ThaiWaii Tavern

Yes. Same as their previous incarnations: lots of live music, cold beers and food (pretty decent Thai dishes and pizzas) and very handy for me being only five minutes away. Richard, Jibe and BB are as hospitable as ever and great fun. I like it a lot. [BTW, no connection to the place other than bein...

Is Endone 'banned' medication?

Hi, I've got a friend coming to Thailand who will need to bring his prescribed Endone tablets with him (for severe knee pain). He'll have a doctor's letter, but we're wondering if his stash could still present a problem at customs should he get searched (they're opiate based). Does anyone know what ...

Re: Washer Dryer Combos

I hear what you're saying about negative reviews, but I had (an Electrolux) washer/dryer and used the washing cycle of it almost every single day for 15+ years. It must have been a lucky fluke machine as nothing ever went wrong with it and it worked perfectly throughout; I didn't even have to replac...
