Re: Don Meung Transfer to Hua Hin

the VIP bus to HH leaves BKK around 14:30, I think. cheap and slightly more safe than a mini van. or take the train that links Don Meung to the Bangkok train station or Bang Sue station and take the train to Hua Hin. cost more than the bus. But much safer than mini vans. takes about 4 hours. just de...

Re: Setting a property sales price

as people convey their experiences buying and selling, it would be helpful if you added a date, maybe just a year that you bought and sold.

only because the markets are changing and it would add some perspective.

and did you sell to a thai/farang or to only a farang?

Terrible accident at Flyover Farang Driver

I came upon a terrible accident this evening just after it happened. A white Toyota four door pick up truck missed the turn at the south bound start of the fly over and jumped the curb, tore into a large sign post and flipped over and landed facing the opposite direction. The front of the truck was ...

Eyewitness to Thai on Thai Knife Attack Near Soi 88.

I was riding my scooter this evening on the Soi that runs parallel to the canal and along the east side of the Soi 88 food court. It was 21:03 and I was riding south bound. I saw all of this happen from start to finish. Two scooters came racing up besides my scooter with a lot of yelling and screami...

Getting Searched Last Night by the Police.

FYI, Last night at 22:15 I was stopped by the police at a checkpoint. I will not say exactly where. Anyone who lives in HH soon knows about the late night checkpoints on small Sois running north and south round the Soi 94/88 area. Flashlight in my face. They were looking for drunk drivers, but seein...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

At 04:00 AM experiencing the heaviest rain I have ever seen at this location.

The amount of water coming down is amazing.

I just heard a small distance explosion and the power went out for a moment.

Re: Rip Off Hua Hin

I get my motorcycle washed for 100 baht. They do a great job and it would be three times that in the states. They post their prices on the wall. Everything is super cheap here in Thailand from my perspective, food, housing, medical, transportation (if you want to call it that). Oh course imported hi...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

The latest satellite photo shows a large amount of rain still moving from east to west so it may be raining into the evening here in HH.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Is that the newly constructed park south of town? State of the art.

Last year new storm drains when in on my street.

Guess what?

Re: Tourism minister talks up 5 year visas

Yes the low the middle income Thais would be priced out.

I think they should keep over building condos and houses so rents remain dirt cheap.

Sort of self serving but it works for me.
