Re: Electrical Problems after Storms

Another problem that can occur, not related to the weather, is excessive "voltage drop" on consumer supply lines. This is just as likely to occur on developer type estates as it is on direct private connections. It is usually the result of undersized cabling, and / or undersized capacity transformer...

Re: New highway planned from Hua Hin to bypass?

North is at the top on these maps (the sea is on the right). Isn't that the usual way? Yes it is. In this case it is probably a lot more clear if you have the full size drawing in front of you, but even more so if North was displayed. The comments posted have mostly referred to the Pala-U Road, whi...

Re: New highway planned from Hua Hin to bypass?

It would be less confusing if the map was orientated showing North, as the rest of the world does it!
The Pala-U road runs from east to west, the bypass north to south. Thais cannot read road signs, never mind a "map".

Do you know how many Thai/Chinese families there are here, do you think they do not have a plan
The article is not about Thai / Chinese families. It is about mainland Chinese investing in Thailand.

Re: House market in Hua Hin

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thai ... SKBN1AI0U5 In that article they are referring to Condominiums. Although I agree that the Chinese will become big investors, how are they going to get around the current land ownership laws? I doubt that any Chinese would enter into some form of lease or c...

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

I guess that these are examples. But it is not clear if the "tube" is any stronger than an ordinary glass fluro lamp.
