Re: Artists Gallery/Shop

Yes,The Artist Village is well worth a visit. Most of the artists will do a painting to order. Closed on Mondays, cafe/ restaurant there as well now. Entry is 50baht for Farangs and 20 baht for Thais.
The artist SavaVudh is particularly good,situated right at the back.

Re: Million dollar Pace MahaSamutr lagoon development coming to Hua Hin

Work seems to ground to a halt on this development apart from the prescence of a skeleton crew. The parent company of the developers are reputed to have financial problems

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I know that this is a slightly serious thread, especially as we're talking about money, but I couldn't help thinking about the various types of people who are buying Cryptos at the moment, so I've come up with a few definitions. Feel free to add more: Cryptoists: The Shifter A possibly shifty perso...

Re: Newbie joins up

Welcome from a fellow retired dentist. True Arena gym just off Soi 112 is excellent. There is a very good cycle path that runs from. near Soi 116 to halfway to Pranburi. For Thai food, Moonsmile in the Bintabaht is very good. For drinks,cocktails the rooftop bar East (soi94) is cool. For live music ...

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I left the BTC party in May and switched to Ethereum and some other small stuff. Not doing my wallet any good right now, but maybe good for my blood pressure. :). When the BTC correction or great cash-in happens I wonder where the money will move to (other than expensive watches and diamond rings)....

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

I'm glad I didn't heed your advice, Steve. Bitcoin's now trading at nearly 582,000 baht on the bx site. Nobody knows when the bubble will burst (or if it will). As I, and others, have said if you're trading with money that you are prepared to lose, then this is a hell of a lot of fun. Just hang on ...

Re: Restaurant for wedding anniversary

I would give the Chocolate Factory in Soi 65 a go. New building, modern design and a varied menu at reasonable prices for the quality. Parking on site is a bonus. I was there tonight and enjoyed it.

Re: Legality of property agent email correspondence

In the UK once the essential terms have been agreed there is a firm contract, even if some smaller detail has been overlooked or a mistake has been made in the less important terms. Even verbal agreement is binding if both parties can be shown to have agreed. I don't know if that applies in Thailan...

Re: Buying a house, transfer fees?

I am trying to organise change of ownership of my house from mr and mrs Dundrillin to mr Dundrillin.
I have been quoted 155000 baht for land office and 50000 to the developer. Plus legal fees.that seems pretty steep to me. Land is leased under the 30 year rule.

Re: Investment Rates

The Crypto currency is likely the next big one, but a bit too scary for me, good luck to those investors though. Playing the stock market I tried 35 years ago and wasn’t a good stock picker, and especially fx trading you can lose your shirt [ I lost one of me shirts ] the professional traders love ...

Re: Police checkpoints in Hua Hin

Stopped by police check tonight on the rat run between 88 & 112. I showed my Thai driving license and was waved on my wave. They seemed more interested in the motor bike guys. No problem at all.

Re: House market in Hua Hin

There are some very good comments above. I doubt there is a massive oversupply in HuaHin,some developers have very impressive sales. That maybe due to them allegedly paying estate agents 7% commission. This in turn, in my experience at any rate leads agents to steer you away from re-sales when you a...
