With the new timings it is not even possible to have a day trip in either direction.
I can imagine they may have done it intentionally to stimulate the economy in both places during the low season. In essence they are forcing visitors to get a hotel room for the night. Pete :cheers:

Boy, 3, dies after school building fall

The only reason I post this story is because of what I have placed in bold and underlined below. If the reporting and use of English translation from Thai is correct, the law has been broken in a profound way. If an emergency situation the receiving hospital must admit and treat the patient. If a pe...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

This article will ruin your day. If you have something fun planned, don't read it until tomorrow. :( What is happening to these birds is happening to the majority of baby turtles the Thai Navy releases into the Gulf IMO, and it's a strong IMO because I personally see the waters where they release mo...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I've noticed these past months that their wording seems to be trying to cover all eventualities. This but then that....maybe. :laugh:

For me it has been hot season temps in the east the past two days. Burn the skin off your back if out without a shirt. 36-37c easy. Pete :cheers:

Re: Hua Hin - Pattaya ferry project news and updates

There hasn't been any update on this for many months now. Is it still running on a regular basis, reliable, few breakdowns etc? Hopefully someone has been using it and is up to date with news about it. We are in the low season again and perhaps the frequency will change. Any news appreciated. Pete :...

Re: Astronomy, cosmology and space thread

No telescope needed to see Saturn on June 27 Saturn, with its remarkable rings, will be visible to the naked eye on June 27 and astronomers are urging people to have a look. The gas giant will be at its closest point to Earth this year and in opposition to the Sun, with Earth squarely in the middle...

Re: Hua Hin Forum software upgrade

Mine does the same thing because of my bookmark which had the www address. Change that bookmark and put in the new one from Norseman's link and it should hold and you won't see the www any longer. Pete :cheers:

Edit: Both www and no www works and you'll still see the forum page you're going to.

Re: Europe travel

I been told that wearing tan khaki long pants is a dead giveaway that you're a Yank. Beware! :laugh: I used to wear them all over the place there in the 80's and it seemed like locals were wearing them also. So, things have changed or the whole thing is BS. Pete :cheers:

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

You're right, Tofu by itself is a tasteless substance. The Japanese serve it many different ways though and it can be very tasty and a normal side dish with a Japanese meal. Pete :cheers:

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

Last night was Japanese night this week and the problem was not the tofu as I had none, but used soy sauce. Little if any sleep, disgusted and up after 3 hours. Noticed some minor lip swelling last night. Perhaps not the first time but never noticed it before and was alert to it because of one of th...
