Death Railway tag debated for World Heritage application

Some of the idiots objecting to the existing name need to talk to the families of the victims!

Villages vaccinated after eating Rabies infected buffalo

Surely these people are not that stupid? They live in a small village and to have buffaloes in the first place indicates that at least some of them are farmers. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Villagers vaccinated after eating rabies-infected buffalo https://www.bangkokpo...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As an FYI, Hua Hin now has its own radar loop. See below link. Looking at the center of the source, the device(s) must be in one of the Thai Navy buildings/sites directly adjacent to the beach.

Re: Hua Hin airport due for upgrade

The flight path does not go over the Palace. In fact, the airspace is a 24 hour restricted space. Runway 16 is approached from the north, and mostly in use as the take off direction also, involves a left turn away from the coast after airborne. The reciprocal runway is 34(basically in a northly dire...

Yes, it is a good site, but has not been updated recently from what I can see. His reference to ELCB's is well out of date. There are b...
