Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

2 AM yes likely dozed off. I ride with Sombat Tour buses, during the day as the drivers look fairly
awake, and I have not had a problem with the Bangkok to Hua Hin portion of their route.
My Thai family use the company quite often as well and trust them way more then the mini
bus services.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

I agree with BB that 10,000 baht fines should be the normal fine or higher, and take the vehicles of the repeat offenders, would also help them to see the light. This 200 or 400 baht tea money is not making a single one of the offenders change their ways. The police force has to change their attitud...

Re: Massive exodus from Bangkok - 7 deadly days of Songkran begin

Another year, another Songkran, more people owning cars, more young inexperienced drivers,
driving drunk, high, or both, and yes texting or getting a selfie, and here the numbers are
up again. Very sad, but I do not expect to see any changes at least for a few more years.

Re: Astronomy, cosmology and space thread

I guess there were no ships or anything that got video or pictures of the Chinese Space Station when it blazed its way back to Earth. Darn! I for one do not want to see any of the real space ships with Aliens on board. I doubt that they will be very friendly, but they will be a lot more intelligent ...

Re: Global Warming 2

Volcanoes when they blow spew out their materials also blow out tons of CO2 as well but because it is nature doing that, it does not count, so the small polluting countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, get their citizens to pay the CARBON TAX, while the real polluting countries like, India, ...

Re: Govt to ban Songkran water splashing, water guns, alcohol, skimpy clothing - the Songkran 2018 thread

Yes another year and another bunch of rules, Hope all you expats have a good time and stock up on your beverages when the stores allow. Glad I am not there this year as I still have fond memories of my last soaking. Hope the government and police do not get any more power in Thailand. Tourists are h...

Re: Animal-rights groups urge Hua Hin expats to save dogs from possible slaughter

Animal rights people will not be able to save themselves if they are bitten by a rabid dog. Politicians, Police and Military are in the same boat, but just keep on saving these poor soi dogs that have been a problem for years. Gosh, do not even suggest that it is a good time to lessen their populati...

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

I hope I arrive in Swampy when the nice airlines all arrive, I am also glad that I will be picked up by my Thai family so I do not need a taxi to get me to my place of rest. I have only seen the restaurant area when I flew domestically from Swampy and thankfully it was mostly Thais and Europeans and...

Re: Kite Surfer Dies Off Hua Hin Beach

As a non Kite Surfer who enjoys walking the Hua Hin Beach area I would suggest that the surfers move further south. The swimmers have no chance to avoid the surfers if they speed into the swimming areas, and all parties realise this. Good luck to all that use and enjoy this area, and RIP to the surf...

Re: Hua Hin Airport to Operate International Flights by End 2017

If there is no ILS system in Hua Hin, in my opinion, there will not ever be any jets fly commercially into the airport. It is a shame that even Air Asia or Bangkok Air will not fly into Hua Hin with their jets because they need the means to fly into the airport in good weather and bad. An Instrument...

Re: Thailand Tourist Friendly?

Yes Thailand is still Tourist friendly, but certainly not expat friendly. My friend who lives in Hua Hin with his wife, says he only goes there for 5+ months because he hates Winter and his wife likes to see her home country and parents and family each Winter. The prices slowly go up and his expat f...
