We are an information portal, we provide information about Hua Hin to people interested in Hua Hin - these maps are part of that service. The more information we can provide the more readers we get and in turn the more attractive our website becomes to potential advertisers. Pretty simple really.

Long overdue, but the accuracy of our Soi 80 map was checked this morning. Changes seem considerable for such a compact area. Working from the bottom up (or East to West):

I can't really comment on this, but those photo's simply beg the question - are some of these places really bars, or just 'throwaway' small lock up's, where 'three' will literally be a crowd!

I believe Chosita Salon is above the bar on the first floor and can't believe Linda's is gone as she owns most of that end of the street!

Thanks, I'll nip back to check Chosita Salon. The old Check In Coffee signage was still up. So if Check In Coffee is still in business, what is Chosita Salon - a bar or a hairdresser?

I found it hard to believe Linda's was gone but at at 11(ish) this morning, I could see no evidence at all. Can any of you night birds advise please?

The salon is a hairdressers, Linda is the 70 yr old madam who was a close friend of many an old expat and has been there for over 10 years, before it became a bar area. Her bar is a bit different from others!! More of an institution!

I will take NOKYAI's word for the Chosita Salon/Check In Coffee explanation, and leave it as Check In Coffee. A strange way to indicate your business's location but TIT.

I have just (14:45) driven through Soi 80, and there is no signage indicating Linda Bar, so unless somebody can say it is definitely still there by close of play today, it's out.

An early morning venture into Soi 80 earlier today saw us doing the next stage of validating our maps. We know how handsome we are, so don't need reminding at every bar, but of course locked bars are not always easy to identify. As usual, we think we've done a good job, but are grateful for any corrections, which we'll go back to validate.

Todays changes, starting from Petchkasem Road, working West to the Railway Road:

GONE - Lins Cafe

NEW - or at least displaying a sign again is Linda Bar

As I said, we think we've done a splendid job :wink: , but please correct us where required. This detail will be passed to our map maker in about 48 hours.

Thanks to all of you who supplied pictures of the bars on Soi 80. I seen a video as well in the
video section of the forum. I think I will have to stroll down Soi 80 while I am there in December.
I always have a great visit to Hua Hin and see no reason to have a bad one this time.

D Dang Bar is a good little bar about midway up the Soi. Drink Prices are good and the staff is friendly. The Owner is a sweetheart and plays music on request.

OK guys, out team has been pacing Soi 80, looking for updates to our bar map. In a couple of instances where we couldn't draw direct correlation old to new, we've marked the chage as gone and new,

A couple of questions have been asked in red.

As usual, we have done our best, but likely there will be omissions/mistakes. If you spot any, please advise by midday Friday, at which point the findings will be sent to our cartographer.

Under New Ownership:

Nok Yung Coffee appears to have replaced Nalida's, but there are still some signs indicating Nalida's. Can anybody confirm please? No photo for this one.

El Toro Loco has replaced Check in Coffee
