Re: Hua Hin address map?

They are getting to grips with it in parts of BKK and renaming houses so that they form some sort of order. However, it's not planned for HH as yet. I understand the address number to be determined by the order the building was registered and has nothing to do with it's physical location. Hence the ...

Re: Smoking ex-pats

I started smoking when I was 13 and still smoke. Can't you understand that smoking is not only an addiction (for some it is) but it's also a pleasure. This is a classic case of confusing pleasure with the satisfying of an addiction. I guarantee that if you'd never smoked, you certainly wouldn't fin...

Re: New Petrol Station Soi 94

It'll be interesting to see how it competes with the other one on 94. That one has been getting away with 'doctored' pumps for years. The price on the pump doesn't always hold true.

Re: Very quiet in Hua Hin

April often accounts for Easter (early this year, Easter Sunday is 1st April) and that along with Songkran usually takes the tourist traffic to the middle/3rd week. Then it dies!

Re: Bangkok Hospital: hope you have health insurance or plenty of cash

They probably wouldn't want my business anyway, since I'm 78. I'm in the same boat due to my age. It was being said a while ago that tourists would have to prove they had insurance before being admitted into the country. My mother comes for 3 months every year. She'll have her 93rd birthday here th...

Re: British Embassy in Bangkok To Be Sold Off

Well some of them are contrary to what is said on their website (Bangkok that is). However, if what you say is true then the embassy is not just a bit of a waste of time, it's completely a waste of time. I must have been lucky as I've never been asked for affirmation of any documents by the British ...

Re: Mitsubishi Hua Hin

At the end of the day, an authorised dealer has the backing of Mitsubishi which a private dealer doesn't. Any problem with the HH dealer and it would be an uphill struggle to involve the Mitsubishi Corporation.

Re: Renewing car registration in Prachuap Khiri Khan city

I stand corrected. I've been using KC for so long I forgot the details. If you go there to renew tax and you don't show a valid insurance policy, then they automatically charge you for the government insurance which is a fixed fee. When paying the tax on the several motorbikes I have, insurance has ...

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

Just come back from Takiab. Ton's bar is quite happy as although they front the beach, their main bar/restaurant fronts the beach but is not ON the beach. I told Boom that she should put up a big sign 'EAT, DRINK AND SMOKE HERE!' More to the point, I never saw any 'no smoking' signs on that beach en...
