Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

They really need to look at what the currents are bringing down the coast from the Chao Praya, as well as the brand mark on the filters. I have a sneaky feeling many will be Zhonghua, Zhongnanhai or Lesser Panda, assuming that is that Cha Am beaches are popular with Chinese tourists.

You can listen to 20-30 and only come across one that keeps you fully interested, and this is one of them. Best to listen to on a thundering, dark night. :D Pete :cheers: Note: ...
