Re: Million dollar Pace MahaSamutr lagoon development coming to Hua Hin

Re: Ranong, staying in Kawthoung/Victoria Point (Burma)

Two mates of mine stayed over on that side about 10yrs ago..They said it was the longest night ever..nothing to do, noisy, & they simply stayed in the hotel room & drank the cheap rum they'd bought earlier.
