Re: Labour Ministry: visa and work permit violators threaten Thai lives

Spare a thought for all of those poor Thai families that must be so fearful for their lives, imagine the sleepless nights over the prospect of losing their houses to those evil foreigners that haven't got the right paperwork.

The Intercon regularly advertise brunches and events, though I doubt you'll find 'free flow' anywhere in Hua Hin.

Re: How has the terrorism of 2016 affected tourism in HH?

Since you haven't had a reply I'll give it a go ... Terrorism will affect travel to any country afflicted by it and yes those that live here will see 2017 tourist numbers way down on previous years.
