Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

I tried to use the service last night around 19:00. Took 10 minutes to get a car and a further 10mins for him to cancel on us.... :banghead:
Went with the local Khao Takiab taxi mob.

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Sounds like a good thing to me... I'd quite happily pay a few extra baht to avoid the atrocious Bangkok taxis.... In H.H. late at night you are limited to tuk-tuk drivers or a reliable taxi number you may have.... Missus GN is reluctant to use a tt driver if she's out partying with her friends at ni...

Re: Driving from airport (Swampi) to Hua Hin

What are folks paying for the airport taxis to Hua Hin now?
Last time I used them (a few months ago) they were asking for >3,000thb. I know I can arrange a driver to pick me up for around 2,000thb but curious to know if others are being asked for the same amount.
:cheers:

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

It's a shame there is no Volvo dealership locally, Bangkok is the nearest.. Would have liked to test-drive one. Volvo was scored off the list due to this and also the XC90 which is the model that suited us best was about twice our budget. Everest getting picked-up Friday. :cheers: GN. Edit: welcome ...

Re: Electrical Problems after Storms

^ I don't think there would be any point, if there is a problem with one phase (fault in the line?) then it would still affect the three-phase system. Better wait for Nereus to respond, this is his domain. I've forgotten most of what I learnt and university (E&EE). GN. Edit: if your neighbours have ...

Re: Electrical Problems after Storms

you can't connect to all three phases as then you will have a 3-phase supply which is not suitable for your house.

Re: PEA Online Payment (Electric Bill)

I pay mine monthly by way of direct-debit so it comes off my account automatically. I set this up at PEA - top-floor Market Village. Perhaps this is a better way for you..?
Sorry can't help with your actually question.

Re: Philippine Island to close to tourism.

Sounds like the island actually has to be shut-down in order for the improvements to be carried out anyway....

Re: Philippine Island to close to tourism.

Kudos to Duterte for keeping his word. He gave the island authorities plenty of warning, threatened to close the island if they did not clean-up the place. Islanders ignored and therefore got shut-down.... Lessons-learnt the hard way. Edit: I visited Boracay several years ago and it was the most bea...
