Re: Looking for a nice place to get in shape// Fitness

Yea they don't seem to have prices on the website. PBeacher's figures sound about right from what I remember last time I enquired; that's "Blue membership" paid on an annual basis 500bt per visit is providing you've paid for "Orange membership" which, last time I checked, cost 5000bt and I *believe*...

Re: Looking for a nice place to get in shape// Fitness

So how expensive is the True Arena Gym? Pr. month? 500 per visit - http://www.truearenahuahin.com/the-venues/fitness-club/membership/ That 500bt per visit if if you are an "Orange" member which requires a one-off payment (or so I believe) of 5000bt. An individual visit last time I went was 700bt; b...

Re: Selling price of cds?

Hello, thanks for the first suggestions! So between 100 and 250 Baht would be reasonable? Also buyers should be prepared to pay higher prices in view of the fact that the sale would benefit a charity, shouldn't they? Looking forward to further input. Perla As others have said; you can't just expect...

Seems a bit steep to get in at $350.

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

No, because the transaction is guaranteed. Average transaction speed is about ten minutes now. My understanding is that the transaction is only guaranteed to be non fraudulent (ie confirmed) after three "confirmations". I've done quite a bit of minor trading recently and never once have the three c...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

In cafes? I thought the value of 1 Bitcoin was megga bucks. How was change being handed back? In a wheelbarrow? It's beyond imagination how many Dong you'd get to a Bitcoin. A common misconception. Bitcoin is a digital currency, it can be broken down into tiny pieces digitally - there is no 'change...

Re: Handwriting

Luckily I don't think my handwriting is capable of deteriorating; it has always been awful! On a serious note, though, I just point blank give up trying to make things legible on most forms here; where they seem to give you half a page's width to write your telephone number, but a finger-space to wr...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I have five nephews in the UK and don't normally bother with Christmas presents for them. This year I'm going to tell them to get a wallet for cryptos and I'll send them a little something to start them off. If they can't work out how to open an account, then they'll obviously get nothing. Cruel, b...

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

Tourism accounts for around 12% of the economy and is easily the fastest-growing sector, particularly since a coup in 2014. This sentence confuses me... Are they trying to say that having a coup has somehow increased the amount of money tourism is bringing? Or is it suggesting that growth in other ...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

There will always be scare/rumour/wind-up mongers (many will be very convincing). The only way is to wait for the official announcement. It would help things along quite nicely if the official announcement would come with more than about 12 hours notice. Everybody that I spoke to about the issue, b...

Re: The Beer Thread

I'd imagine people are "panic buying" because of the uncertainty of supply over the next couple of weeks. I did my own spot of stocking up last night and there were three other couples also getting their supplies in. It was about 8pm and the beer fridge was half empty; I don't know if this was becau...

Re: Hua Hin. Daily Photo

I wasn't aware of the differences between JPEG and PDF images. From what I have been able to ascertain from my first attempted research is that PDF format requires less storage space and the ability to get a reasonable quality print, even if it is taken from a web site. My question is, by convertin...
