Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

Some are so happy, some are unhappy. Some like it when HH is quiet and relatively deserted, others like the bars to be full of girls and tourists. Pattaya has less slumping and more humping. You pays your money and takes your choice.

Re: Soi Selakam

But don't despair, Uncle Tom, sitting there in Cambridgeshire and working on urban improvement projects for HH. Your ideas are always stimulating and talking of getting stimulated when is your next visit??

Re: Tiger's career could now be over

This proves that he is a top rank player again --it doesn't prove that he is the old "Who is going to finish second?" Tiger of old.

Re: Small road trip Pattaya Sattahip Rayong

There are some nice small hotels in Sattahip, as so much of the land is military it has been less developed than other areas, The hospital there is a Naval one but is open to civilians and is regarded as the best in the area.

Re: Soi Selakam

Surface the area where the restaurant were demolished and allow the carts to park there.

On a connected issue--Have you seen those massive double-decker buses full of Chinese trying to get down to the entrance of the Hilton.

Re: Racing Market

Interesting the Night Mkt at 88 has been very successful, 90+ of the clientele are Thai. and they seem to have no problem with the high decibel music. Then 2 other wannabees start, one on 94. and now this one. The one at 94 never took off, see how this one does.

Re: Hua Hin - Pattaya ferry service news and updates

Lack of passengers-- Here is a HUGE generalization but I think there is some truth in it.
The sort of tourists who go to Pattaya are not interested in the relative quietness of HH.
The sort of tourists who go to HH are not interested in the sleaze of Pattaya

Re: Cornwall and South Devon more European than English?

In Toronto there is an active Cornish Association, the only English county that has one to my knowledge, although there is a Yorkshire team in the Cricket league.
