Re: Alcohol ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches?

As of today (03 Nov/17) booze is flowing copiously at Hua Hin Beach (the Umbrellas @ Hilton area).
Mr Bee, the owner of the consession I'm lolling around at ~ sipping Leo yai ~ knows nothing about booze bans.

No doubt in my mind that the main cause of long waits at the regular Imm office is farangs filling in wrong forms, forgetting a needed form o...

Re: Snooker cue tip repair ...

Thanks a lot ... that was fast.
I live on Soi 80 so quite close. Never noticed the place.

Snooker cue tip repair ...

Hope someone knows where I might find a person in HH who is excellent at replacing worn out cue tips?
I admit to being useless and frustrated at this (I've tried!) tiresome job.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

It's quite surprising to me that people were skeptical about it, since I said that Blueport itself was supposed to be doing extensions and provided even a link. Glad you don't have to go too far. However, please lets not get too precious about it. Originally the BluPort office on first opening did ...

Well well there's the answer to Kangaroo's question. Looks like tourist visa extensions are provided at BluPort.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Yes, they still have a photo business going on. It's probably not a bad idea I suppose given that huge numbers of farang always forget photos, as they also do with getting the forms straight. My opinion ( not scientific :roll: ) is that about 70% of the long queues are because of farang screwing up ...

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

My version of Google maps shows up as Soi 35 being the Thai Immigration Office. As it should. https://www.google.co.th/maps/place/Immigration+Office+Hua+Hin/@12.596058,99.9517709,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x30fdaa66ef06cf43:0x4e1d998b223e29cd!8m2!3d12.5999426!4d99.9540025?hl=en For petes sake ... grab a m...

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

The Imm is on the 'basement' floor along with the banks and food court. Just take the escalator down (the one which is staring you in the face if you enter through the streetside main doors) and you can't miss it along the wall where the banks reside. You don't need a web site to figure it out. Ther...

I'm pretty sure re-entry permit is 1900 baht, and as mentioned below, Multi Entry 3800 baht.
You're mixing up the 'Extension' fee (1900B) and the "Re-entry" fee (1000B).

Re: El Toro Loco bar closed?

Just an anecdote: A few nights ago I was playing a friendly game of pool with one of the staff at the Soi 80 version of El Toro. I asked him about the apparent move to Soi 94. He said " yes that's right ... in about 2 weeks to open ". He also said they will be closing this Soi 80 bar. (Damn! I liked...

Re: El Toro Loco bar closed?

Redzonerocker ... more I didn't know: that El Toro and El Toro Loco are owned by the same person. Regarding the possible move to Soi 94 from Soi 80. Do you mean that the Soi 80 version will be shut down after this move? If so, the only comment on that would be that the owner has already put in (what...
