Re: Banyan Residence and Surrounding Area

The only way to make money with owning a house in Hua Hin is if you buy a plot of land and build your own house, then you could sell it at a profit, assuming you design it well. The process can be very stressful for a foreigner though. The way to make money in Hua Hin, is by buying land in the corre...

Re: Land clearing in Kao Tao

My wife has regularly cleared our land and she has all the contacts of diggers and trucks. If you would like her to take a look at it you could call her or give me your phone number. Only problem is she is away next week working.

Re: Prostate Medicine

Not sure where to get this drug but you should supplement on Lycopene. I believe you can get it in Boots. They say it can help with prostate problems and worst scenario, it won’t do you any harm.

Re: Law Office Kraiwit in Hua Hin

I think very hard to find a good litigator in Hua Hin. Have to go to Bangkok and pay plenty of money to the big, powerful firms. Kraiwit is a good, honest lawyer and very reasonable. Excellent if you want contracts made up and want him to guide you through the minefields of buying property here. A b...

Re: Bringing Golf Clubs into Thailand

You will have no problem at Bangkok customs. Very unlikely they will stop you and you are allowed to bring your golf clubs here. Airlines are all different and bear this in mind before you book your ticket. I think Turkish and Emirates are golf club friendly, but double check on their websites.

Re: Golf course conditions April 2018

Springfield has been verti draining their greens. Done A and C already and should be good again shortly. B not done yet. Fairways are best they have been in years. They have a rate of 1000 baht green fee if you have Thai driving license or own a property here. I live beside Black Mountain and have n...

Re: Black Mountain GC

Totally agree with you Frank. I also used to use the Black Mountain range a couple of times per week. Never once could I not find a mat to hit off, even though it used to get busy. I have stopped by a few times recently and the place is now deserted.

Re: Possible land purchase 2.5km outside HH centre. Planning to build houses. Advice please.

Jose’s idea is the best. Property in the UK is relatively safe while property here is never in your name and the last thing you ever want is to be involved in a Thai legal case that drags on for years. If you build a house here in Hua Hin for around 2 million baht, it will be tough to get much more ...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

Just been in the Philippines and was astonished at how much junk food they eat there and a lot of fat people. Certainly seemed to be fatter than the Thais. Seems strange to me that so many Thai women let themselves get fat by eating bad diets and not exercising, while at the same time so many are no...

Re: One or 5 years membership at Hua Hin Golfclubs

Springfield offers 3 year memberships. Not certain how much. Maybe 100 000 baht and the maintenance fee is 15 000 baht per year. Best deal at Springfield is lifetime memberships that can be bought off a member wanting to sell. Usually go for around 250 000 baht, which includes transfer fee. Banyan s...

Re: A pretty realistic article about Thailand retirement cost

This debate always appears on forums and is really a waste of time. Everyone spends different amounts on their chosen lifestyle. I can understand that many people try to work this out in advance of retiring and moving here but the only way to work it out is to come here for a long holiday and do you...

Re: Airport Transit Question__Different airlines.

In January I travelled from Edinburgh to Amsterdam with KLM and then Amsterdam to Bangkok with Eva Air. I also had no checked baggage. I checked in online for both flights and printed out my boarding cards for both flights. No need to go through immigration and re check in.

Re: Tourist shamed for refusing to take 'smelly' feet off seat

There really are some idiot tourists that visit Thailand and give the rest of us a bad reputation. The young man is an army reservist and doesn't have the balls to take a stance against this rude girl. It is good to be polite but there is also a time when you have to take no shit.

Re: Golf Rules - Questions and Answers

Not quite as common nowadays, but nearly all pro's clubs used to have lead tape attached to the back. This tape is specifically meant to change the clubs performance, but this is legal.
