Re: Koh Tao police to reopen death case of Belgian tourist

The Sun newspaper in the UK has just run this story...& has also made readers aware of all the other victims over the last 3 yrs, & the suspicious nature of each of their deaths. * All backpackers *All quite young * Suicide being the leading cause of death according to the RTP. Not looking good for ...

Re: New bike path on Highway 4

The above posting by Nick NCFC is correct..the barriers that were in place have now been ripped out in some parts, the cycle-track tarmac is now starting to have big holes in it (WTF?) The gates/barriers are always opened & never locked in place...(this maybe due to the amphur deciding to plant all ...

Re: Hua Hin to get it's own walking street?

Yes Binta is now a 'Walking St'..but (at the temple end) you've got street-traders blocking 1 side of the (almost full width) no-entry barrier, & bar-girls from Tina Bar standing in 2's & 3's always blocking the other entry point.. folk on many occasions do have to push thru'.

Re: El Toro Loco R.I.P??

Rumour has it that the real reason for closing & moving is nothing to do with a Bintabaat 'clean-up', & that another big bar close to El Toro may well be closing too.

Re: Hua Hin to Sisaket

There is a VIP coach leaves H.H. bus station (on the south side of Hua Hin) every night at ~ 9pm. This coach has TVs in the seat-backs, big leather seats & comes up from Phuket (it has 4 drivers on board) To the best of my knowledge it terminates either in Si-Saket or Surin..? Maybe a visit to bus s...

Our problem is that in ...

Re: Vicious Thai gangs at Songkran

I refuse to watch this video. But what many folk have indeed commented on, & in their opinion is just as bad as the attack itself.. is the arm-in-the-air act of triumph displayed at the end by one of the attackers.

Re: Orbea cycle shop

I was in there last year..yes the bikes are indeed pricey, but I guess you pay for the name. I bought my mtb on e-bay in the UK, rode it, changed parts to suit, then stripped it & brought it over..(so much easier now many airlines are allowing 30kg baggage in economy). On various mtb forums over her...

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

Chonburi to Krabi is a fair distance for (I'm assuming) one driver to do..the likelihood of him falling asleep at the wheel, or at the very least being drowsy may come into play here.

Re: Roof Ventilation

I do not know about installation, but if you go to 'Thai Watsadu'..the BIG store half way between Hua Hin & Cha Am..they sell big fans (with a surround) that are designed to be built-in to a wall for about 1,100B..I'm thinking of fitting one, plus a flume/duct above 1 of our roofs to draw in fresh a...

Re: Correct Way to Propose?

Ask her if you can go 'up country' & meet/stay a while at her family home..if your ladys says OK, & you do indeed go stay at the family home..it is seen as if she has invited you there, & that you'll actually be 'on parade' somewhat. Many times after this initial stay then the parents may assume YOU...
