Re: Any English speaking people in Hua Hin pls read

Have you tried chatting to people sitting next to you at the beach, in coffee sops, restaurants. Most people are pretty friendly but it's not always easy. If you like a beer you will always find someone to chat with in a bar or hotel. As for your kids wanting to live here that's is totally another i...

Re: The ever-improving state of Hua Hin's roads

I think the Hua Hin municipality are doing a great job in improving roads around here. Lots of roads in town have been relayed, street lighting installed, some sidewalks fixed up, new drainage installed etc. I know it can always be better but lets remember this is Thailand. Well done Hua Hin Municip...

Waste of time waiting for the police, they hardly ever do road patrols.

Re: Teeth whitening.. Latest best place?

Recommending is no problem, naming and shaming is not something to try here.

Re: Teeth whitening.. Latest best place?

Dr. S, One has to be very careful with naming business or individuals in Thailand for poor service, the defamation law is very strict and very often used here.

Re: Teeth whitening.. Latest best place?

How can anyone state this is the best teeth whitening shop, do you go to many and try them to compare? You will only go to one every few years at max. Maybe the OP should just be asking for a recommendation. All I know is I do not recommend Cool Smile, they F**k*d up my wife teeth and now she has co...

Re: Sinking funds at Smart House Valley

Re: The i-things - Apple devices and software thread

Re: Opening a bank account which bank?

I opened a Kasikorn account in MV 4 years ago whilst here on a tourist visa without any questions being asked. Still have it and use it almost daily, on-line and for ATM and supermarkets. Introduced a friend last year and they insisted he take out an accident insurance policy plus a minimum 1k baht...
