Re: 101 tips and advice for visitors to Hua Hin

88) Beware the jelly fish! I've been swimming 3 times in Jellyfish low season with not one in sight, but their tentacles still seem to be floating around in the water! Got jabbed 3 times out of 3!

89) Never contribute to a "tips and advice for visitors" thread ;)

Re: Donald Whiting passed away

I read Donald's story many years ago, and it changed my perceptions of doing business in Hua Hin from then on. Made me much more cautious and aware of what could be it you stick your neck out. A sad and powerful lesson.
RIP Donald, I hope you find a new peace in that new place.

Re: Hua Hin Tuk Tuk minimum prices

I remember 7 years ago, it was 150 baht from the town, up to the railway. That was for my Thai friends, not me. Thought it would be more by now. Haven't taken a Tuk Tuk for 5-6 years now.

Re: CCTV camera @ Poolsuk/Bintabaat junction

Thailand's lack of CCTV cameras was one reason I chose to settle here many years ago. Looks like that's all changing now :(
Just as I was getting on top of my paranoia issues too ;)

Re: Black Mountain Area - Shopping Mall?

Things on the BM side have grown VERY slowly over the last 8 years, compared to the rest of HH. I do wonder when it's all going to kick off on that side. ATM not many people seems to want to live out that way for some reason.

Re: Hilton nightclub

Ha ha, so it's not only me they go for in the bogs at Look Nahm :-)
Got the fright of my life the first time in there. Don't think I could manage to piss for 3 days after that experience LOL.
Are those massage guys gay by any chance? And do the ladies get the same treatment ha ha.

Re: TRUE Internet

We have True Fibre Optic 20/2 mb/s
Very erratic download speeds though and patchy service. They replaced a "box" down the road a week ago, they say, and service has been better since :-)
