Re: ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK Movies at Hua Hin Cinema

An unorthodox listing this week. The forum is not allowing me to upload pictures. There are likely to be transcription errors, so definitely check with the cinema first. This week's original soundtrack movies at Hua Hin's cinemas are: Market Village New this week: Ghost in the Shell Trailer/preview ...

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Well this will help the problem. Van operators considering protest about safety measures. Passenger van operators are threatening to stop their services from this Friday if Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha does not relax new traffic rules which require safer public van services. Some regulations are...

Odd/Even Days Parking on Soi 94

Workmen are currently erecting signs on Soi 94 indicating parking on Odd/Even days in future. This will help the snowbirds, giving them a straight run as they wander down Soi 94 4 and 5 abreast :cuss: All they need to do now is get rid of those hideous pots placed outside of some establishments forc...

Re: Need a pickup truck to carry motorbike and boxes to Krabi

In Hua Hin, the truck numbers are stuck on lampposts all over town. You probably see something like 4, 6, 8.10 (referring to the number of wheels) followed by a phone number to call. I've seen similar signs on lampposts in other towns, but can't remember if I've seen them in Krabi.

Re: Where my kids can get smimming lesson ?

I know they do swimming lessons at Sport Villa. I used to see one on one lessons by a Thai instructor all of the time.

I also know a very good Russian swimming instructor here in Hua Hin. If you would like more detail, PM me and I will try to put you in touch. I've no idea what he charges.

Re: Need a pickup truck to carry motorbike and boxes to Krabi

I think the first thing you need to do is clarify the direction you are travelling i.e. your header says 'to Krabi', but the body of the post states, 'to Hua Hin'.

I don't have details of a truck, but most people move motorcycles using Thai post - not expensive.

Re: Songkran 2017

I think we're all waiting for the answer to that one HHT. I've been posting Hua Hin updates as I see them, but everything is talking about traditional so far. However, I notice the Super Soakers are on sale :wink:

Methinks it'll only take a single salvo to start a war :D

Re: Songkran 2017

Bangkok update:

After conflicting reports over the last few days about whether or not Songkran celebrations were canceled on Khaosan Road, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has come forward to say that the festival will happen — albeit with lots of rules.
