Re: Flight to Thailand bargains

Seating Arrangements Just about all airlines are offering great deals on flights to Thailand. Points to either/and a slump in tourists heading for Thailand but also with the newest planes flying to Thailand it is much cheaper for the airlines to fly, lighter planes use less fuel etc. On our most rec...

Re: Demolition of restaurants + shops in Poon Suk road

I have returned to Hua Hin after a seven month break and cannot believe how dead and buried the place is becoming. I know this is Thailand and logic isn't the greatest quality of Thai officials. Everywhere I walked, including past the demolished Moon Smile Platoo etc, was eerie with hardly any activ...

Re: [ADVERTORIAL] Thai Expat TV

I have the same issue on the Premium Expat. Says a particular program is on and it is not. Happens all of the time and frustrating. I contacted the Expat TV people and they said sorry but that is what they are sent so they have little control over the content.

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news and updates

Wife wanted to have a look at Bluport, so off we went on Saturday afternoon. It was not an enjoyable experience because of the loud music and the large number of shop spruikers trying to outdo each other. Lots of people ogling the surroundings but couldn't see too many spending any money. I had a lo...

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news and updates

I have been downtown a few times today and it is already chaotic on main road outside Bluport. Cars double parked in Soi 102.and traffic at a standstill. Doesn't anybody plan these things through when building such a large shopping mall. TIT mentality just defies logic.

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news and updates

Just drove past and everything seems to be well advanced. It looks impressive with a landscaped entrance. However, I cannot see any evidence of planning for the expected large number of vehicles that will bring the shoppers. Soi 102 looks like a traffic jam waiting to happen. Not to mention the main...

Re: Hua Hin and Thailand bomb attacks

Just been downtown and was encouraged to see Police with sniffer dogs doing the rounds and importantly doing it properly. They were going into shops and letting the dogs have a good sniff around. Unfortunately the local police still seem to think that riding their motor bikes around the block a few ...

Re: Thai Navy to buy three Chinese submarines

Apart from being a very flawed decision on technical grounds it is very flawed on any strategic measure.

Re: Thai Navy to buy three Chinese submarines

Having some experience and knowledge in this area. The Thais have bought low tech subs, not much use in the Asia Pacific region where a significant number of countries have bought very high tech French and German submarines.
A dud buy!

Re: Airport VIP Bus to and from Hua Hin

Just off the Airport bus from Hua Hin to Airport. Took a shade under 4 hours following a 7.30 am departure. It was appalling! The Thai hostess, or whatever she was, barked at passengers on boarding, she knew only one word 'seatbelt' and that was the extant of any meaningful interaction. She was plai...

Re: 3BB upgrade

I had our 3BB system upgraded from 10 to 18 within half a day. New router from the same shop. I had enormous difficulties watching ExpatTV etc, however, the upgraded system has done the trick. Had the same experience at MV, I think they were trying to be helpful, at least the young guy was, however,...
