Re: Rental in Hua Hin with social expat communities

I would also take Orchid Paradise Homes....nice settings, great people around but I agree with PBbeacher that it can be seasonal...but there are quite a bit who live there full time and the club house restaurant is with no frills, clean and reasonably good food...there is also the friday night BBQ i...

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

Looks that that there is a high level of jealousy towards foreigners, within the boys in brown with their shiny golden wings. And seems that the issue gets worse if you have a chesty Thai girlie by your side! How much longer will such open corruption be tolerated by the top brass of Thai governance ...

Re: Thai police website leaks details on 800,000 people

The article says that the data was inherent to "visits" of the Thai Police? What kind of "visits" would these mean? This could lead to understand that in Thailand the police can just walk into any home they target and start to racket the residents and post their identity on the internet? Thailand se...

Re: BBC journalist faces five years in jail for reporting Thai fraud

The case is real scary. Farangs seem brave to still buy property under leasehold, in such a lawless environment!

Re: Farang buying a house with a Thai lady

The best thing if you plan to get married, is to put the house in the name of a family member before marriage. Thus you live as a guest and in case of a split up, you don't get ripped off.

Re: Where did you meet your girlfriend or wife?

Re: Absurd Thai laws list

Despite this being the absurd law thread, people would surely appreciate article xx under the taxi act that obliges Bangkok Taxi drivers to turn on the taxi meter without discrimination of nationality or distance!!

A very intelligent post hhfarang. May I humbly add that most AT''s flee the sybols and practice in the religion scene due to the gangrene caused by extremism and corruption within most religious circles, whatsoever be the confession. Every side of religious confessions be them christian, hindu, isla...

Re: Legal status of illegal vehicle

I have to wonder how these 50/50 verdicts will work in the future with many people now having car cams. One would think insurance companies will not be so eager to agree with police verdicts when they have video evidence. Yes, it will be interesting to see how this could alter things if they bring ...

Re: Taxi or something at nightime

most people get at least time and a half for working after midnight, so if 300b is a good 3pm fare then 400-500 at 3am sounds reasonable. Obviously your calculation is correct as night duty does call for more. However, does 300B (daytime charge) seem correct to you one way journey from say Hilton A...
