Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

But as has been said, it doesn't confirm how many are living here, it will confirm how many are registered in Hua Hin's Tabien Bahns.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I've seen in the region of 10 figures so far, each one is different, and none say how the population is calculated.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I believe that to get the 30 baht medicare system, you can only use the hospital where you are registered. My daughters were originally on a tabien baan in BKK and when we moved to HH they had to be on the tabien bahn here in order to use the 30 baht scheme. I was also under that impression, but my...

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

So my daughter isn't part of the stats, and neither am I :?

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I've tried to follow that information (which I also missed :oops: ), but it takes me to a completely different set of figures - about 25% below the Wiki statement.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Yes, I don't doubt it, but Wikipedia gives anybody the ability to change those figures to whatever they want them to read. There is no mention of where those figures come from, nor the date they were compiled. I see there was a census back in 2010 - has there been one since. Didn't people have to go...

Re: Security at Hua Hin to be stepped up for high season

Maybe the explanation is not 100%, but would you rather they did nothing if there is a growing risk, whatever it is?

Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Does anybody know the approximate population of Hua Hin please? I've been thinking about this for a couple of days, and have drawn my own conclusion that it must be an impossible question e.g. my granddaughters are born and bred in Hua Hin, yet they are on my daughter's Tabien Bahn showing them as b...

Re: Cars with dashcams get 5-10% discount

When I renewed with AA Insurance a couple of weeks ago, this was certainly taken into consideration, and a young lady had to take photos of my cameras working in my car. The photos also had to include dashcam manufacturer's logo on the camera. The other strange question was how much the camera had c...

Re: The Beer Thread

That stuff is nice, but I struggle before a bottle is finished - it still hurts. Maybe not as much as Thai beers, but still enough for me not to drink too much.

Re: The Beer Thread

I'm definitely not a connoisseur of Guinness, in fact I rarely touched the stuff in the UK. Just before leaving the UK I had a stomach operation, and Guinness is the only thing I can drink here without feeling stomach pain after a few sips. So I can't even compare the quality of the stuff I do drink...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Guys, can you please stop discussing this event. Notification will be given in the correct thread when it is known what is happening.

Nobody knows yet, and any discussion would be no more than speculation.
