Re: Where to buy Plant Seeds? (Fruits, herbs, vegetables)

Re: AirAsia to fly KL to Hua Hin from May 18

Re: FedEx now have office in Hua Hin

Does FedEx have an office in Hua Hin?
If not, is the DHL service point in BluPort open for business?
Thank you.

Re: AirAsia to fly KL to Hua Hin from May 18

I flew Air Asia this morning from KL to Hua Hin. The two hour flight was 2 hours late leaving KL. Apologies were given but reasons were not. The flight was easily 80% full, mostly young travellers and families. All three passport control desks were open at Hua Hin airport. Bags arrived very quickly ...

Re: Getting rid of an old mattress

Any updates on buying a new mattress and disposing of the old one? I haven't visited Mattress City but it seems the logical place to visit first. Thank you.

Re: Thai Hotels Association concerned over popularity of Airbnb

It's not only hotels that are concerned. A couple of condos in Khao Takiab including my own are having to face the issue. Our management has informed apartment owners that under the Hotel Act B.E. 2547 (2004) Section 15. No person shall operate hotel business unless he has obtained a licence issued ...

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin beach, jail time for offenders

While they're at it, please ban horse manure thoughtfully left on the beach in plastic bags by the jockeys; and dog poo sometimes disguised with a sprinkling of sand by Thai but more often foreign owners. Khao Takiab beach is a dog toilet where scooping the poop seems to be unheard of.

Re: Sheraton Hua Hin - Holiday from Hell

As a friend in Delhi says "Hua Hin is a wedding destination". He's travelled to several in Hua Hin over the years. It's a boon for the large hotels like the Sheraton who have very low occupancy at this time of year. The Hyatt, just up the beach from me has regular Indian weddings too. They are joyou...

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

The owner of Dream Cones, my favourite downtown ice cream parlour, says his business has suffered since the Hua Hin bombings in August 2016. Since then the number of European and Australian customers has dropped, while the number of Chinese visiting Hua Hin, not known as an ice cream eating people, ...

Disposal of IT waste

Is there anywhere in Hua Hin where IT waste and especially used batteries can be disposed of, in the hope that they will be recycled?

Re: Transport, Bangkok to Hua Hin

I think there is a bus service from Suvarnabhumi airport to Khaosan Road. It departs from Door 8, the same as the bus to Hua Hin.
