Re: IKTS 2017/2018

Oh no. I couldn't have predicted worse this week.
C'mon Man U and my banker. If that works out I might just get into plus points.
But then again, it could go tits up.

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

Do you actually have to divest yourself of the actual passport or will a copy do?

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

This morning, I noticed that there was a new traffic sign that stretched over the southbound carriageway of Petchkasem Road, just south of Soi 19, by the temple. Not only did it spell out the speed limit but there were illustrations of speed cameras on it as well (heaven knows if there are any of th...

Re: 1st Immigration Opening Day

As tomorrow's a holiday, I would assume the 3rd. But that's not 100%.

Re: Buying Alcohol Restrictions

You're lucky. The FM near us used to sell all day but started keeping to "the legal hours" about 6 months ago.

Re: Kasikorn Debit Card

I finally got my new debit card after a couple of failed attempts because I didn't have the patience to wait.
All painless, no mention of insurance and cost was 200 THB. Card is valid for 5 years.

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

Well, strangely enough, Thailand, like many other countries have laws regarding jaywalking. It's is technically illegal and carries a fine. Of course, it's rarely enforced in Thailand but fines have been dished out in BKK. I was going to mention jaywalking. Didn't realise there was a law about it o...

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

I went to the Imm Office at Bluport a month or so ago. Got off the songthaew at the crossing. There wasn't a car in sight on the southbound carriageway but the little man on the traffic light was red. I started crossing and one of the young guys started blowing his whistle at me at pointing at the r...

Re: High Season in Hua Hin?

I've just come back from town after collecting some food for tonight. A quick run from just north of the town centre to Chomsin and a saunter up and down there. I was amazed at how quiet everything was. I know it's not a public holiday over here tomorrow and maybe some of the Bangkok crowd will save...

Re: Road Chaos Around Market Village Today?

Noticed that this morning on the way out of town going south (no problems going that way).
Have just returned past MV and the roadworks weren't there so either they're finished "forever" or just for the night.
