Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

Yes, some serious bends and downhill sections in that part of the world - maybe somebody needs to think about crash barriers at these danger hot spots. Maybe a couple of run-off sections (don't remember their name) for use in the event of brake failure. Good idea, although more often than not, it’s...

Re: Thais rank low again at English

European birthrate diminishing and Asian increasing, As usual, jamjar, you have got it wrong. The birthrate in Asia is diminishing not increasing.

Re: One tourist killed, 11 injured in speed boat explosion

From all those comments, seems that accidents never happens in your countries.....555 Another of your foolishly provocative comments - I’m sure that every national reading this thread accepts that in their home country, accidents like this do happen, it’s just at a much lower frequency as a result ...

Re: The best donuts in Hua Hin
