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".

So where is the connection to Bo Fai?

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.

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

Maybe not this one, but something similar. Just pull it apart and use the rack part. Stainless is also a plus, as those ones that you have posted will corrode quickly if used outside. Also, spiders love them and will soon find a way to use them, which in turn leads to an accumulation of dust. https:...

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

Safety items in Thailand? You have to be joking! A clear plastic (acrylic) tube cover is a better option. Don't know anything about the following, maybe only bulk buys? Or maybe only shipped from Japan. There is a phone number. https://th.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/223007628202/?HissuCode=EA944D-102
