Re: Mobile phone blockers in Hua Hin?

My brother runs a security company specialising in heritage buildings, mainly churches and civic buildings, he uses them to show how most wireless security products can be blocked by such things. I ...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

This is very interesting article in Financial Times and Reuters, however they are mostly focused in the increase in buyers from Asian not Europe or US https://www.ft.com/content/5c3e125a-6de8-11e7-bfeb-33fe0c5b7eaa https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thailand-china-property/priced-out-from-home-marke...

Re: Electric Cars

For private owners who may only use a car locally electric would be extremely good here as the price of electricity is low. Even for farmers who do minimal km electric pick ups would be good.

Re: Philippine Island to close to tourism.

Actually Duterte has promised $40m financial aid to locals to help during the closed period. Many will also get work on the upgrade works to be performed. Has Thailand government offered any aid for the places they are closing? The world needs to wake up and simply ban certain products which are des...
