Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Yes, I heard the same announcement last week when doing my 90 day report. If I remember correctly, the lady said that those without proof of address needed to go to the main office.

May?
You could be right but I've always thought the tourist season was drawing to a close during March over the past few years.

Re: Canadians with no visa; can we just pop out of the country and pop back in?

Actually, to be pedantic, it's actually a border run because no visa is being applied for. There is supposedly no limit to the number of times you can do a visa run (to get a tourist or non O visa) but in reality the individual Embassies and consulates will pull you at some stage if you keep doing i...

Re: Canadians with no visa; can we just pop out of the country and pop back in?

The 30 day visa exempt stamp is extendable at Immigration in Hua Hin once for a further 30 days. Cost is 1,900 THB.
After that, you can exit and re-enter by land and get a new 30 day visa exempt stamp (that can be extended as before). Note, you can only exit and re-enter by land twice in any year.

Yep, Mrs BB has been shaking her purse at it :shock: . Apparently it's meant to be lucky, so we know who will be winning the lottery tomorrow :D Yes, my other half was out there shaking her purse as well. I suppose if she loses the lottery tomorrow (more than likely) there will be some vague excuse...

Re: Authorities set to charge for car parking on public roads

Here's a pipe dream. Charge vehicles a congestion fee for entering within a certain radius of the town centre. Install parking meters and have a dedicated, motivated force of people (and I don't mean the BIB) to hand out fines left, right and centre. Oh yes, and make sure that people pay their fines...

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: 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...

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