Re: Revolutionary Road Crossing for Hua Hin

I think I would rather they put in a zip wire for crossing the road. Much safer than that crossing!
Most Thais have no idea what a red light means.

Re: Bottled Water

Well, as "the bloke with the Kangaroo who has an opinion on everything", I am going to stay out of this, except to say that for more years than I want to remember I was obliged to maintain fresh water distillation plants on offshore oil rigs and ships. Also, if you have never had a kidney stone, th...

Re: Hello to all

MikaQ5 Welcome to the forum Mika, enjoy your stay in HuaHin.
I know very little about Boxers and nothing about the local lasses, but I do know Hua Hin is a great town.

Re: Govt: hellish airport immigration queues must end

I'm surprised someone hasn't come up with the idea of "exit through the gift shop"

Re: Nescafe

If me, I wouldn't necessarily stick with a Nescafe brand just because of the name, especially now that it seems they have lost customer trust. There are many other choices out there. Just buy a small bottle or envelope and try each that available here. For something really nice there are Bon Cafe w...

Re: Which month has the best full moon party?

The best Full Moon party in Thailand is the one you live through and survive to tell the tale.
This applies to any month of the year IMHO.

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

This came up a few years ago if I remember correctly, lots of talk, promises made, bugger all done. When it costs big money to have safe buildings, but small money to pay off the officials, which is going to happen? Remember, TIT. :roll: europtimiste wrote "According to some informations I got, 3 t...

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

Teresa May stood up in Parliament today and said basically there are many more tower blocks covered in combustible material. Three samples of cladding tested so far were from 3 blocks in England. How many blocks affected is yet to be ascertained. Also the chief executive of Kensington council has re...

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

^ The difference being in this case is I have never heard of any Thai government ordering a public enquiry, at least one that has the power to summon witnesses on oath and which will have to be published. Also, the fire in the UK is now also the subject of a police enquiry. As the original OP was ab...

Re: Hua Hin hotels push airport redevelopment

Thanks Nereus, never thought about that. What size aircraft can land at HH Airport? Can't see international flights being viable unless they fly in and out full, or almost full. Cost of immigration facilities won't be cheap either. It would take a lot of punters to make international airlines to run...

Re: Hua Hin hotels push airport redevelopment

Not sure the airport needs any upgrade, just needs more people to use the service when there is an airline willing to set up regular flights. Used it all the time way back when and flew to Don Muang, picked up the car and could be at the farm in Nakhon Sawan in under 3 hours for some R&R. Trouble ha...

Re: Demolition of restaurants + shops in Poon Suk road

Had my first meal in HH at one of those little
stalls behind the temple, way back in 1998.
Sad to see them go. 😭
