Re: Photo trip report: Sai Yok Yai, Sangkhlaburi, Kanchanaburi

You say it's a small Burmese village. Now for the silly question........ Is the Burmese village in Burma, or is it Burmese people inhabiting a village in Thailand? If it's in Burma, what sort of border controls were there, if any?

Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

I still believe a massive wind-up. I'm sure the police enjoy a good joke as much as the next person.

So Thaihawk is telling porkies?
Possibly - strange thing to happen upon for a first post. I don't know.

I've never known a misleading/badly worded sign removed before. It all seems too convenient.

Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

I've still got some very big doubts. However, we'll all have an opinion.

Advisory or law, it has probably already damaged Hua Hin with so many publications jumping on the band wagon. The entire piece still stinks of fake news IMHO.

Re: Petition to stop under age children to drive to school in cars or big bikes in Thailand.

Obviously the subject is one that concerns most of us, and I guess most of us see it daily regarding bikes. As for pick-ups, I guess some of the crazy driving could be down to kids, but I don't see the driver through the tinted glass.

There is a big sign saying Farangs have to report to somebody before entering, but I've never bothered.

Re: B700m park to honour Thai kings in Hua Hin

I always call in as I pass with visitors - it's always a very quick stop. They always say the statues are amazing, but once you've seen them, you've seen them. Your statement had me thinking I'd been rushing them, and missing something really amazing.

I'm fascinated by that statement oakdale. What do you find to do there that takes longer than 15 minutes?
