Re: Disappointing Hotel Service

Like many of the older Hotels in Hua Hin, the City Beach is well past its sell by date, grubby, worn and tatty, as for customer service, I think the days when every shop, restaurant or hotel you walked into, you were greeted with a lovely smile and traditional "wey " have long gone, now as a custome...

Re: RIP David Bowie

If you came to Bowie anytime after the mid 80s, then maybe you don't understand how important he was in the Rock World, for those of us who were there in the early 70s, right at the beginning there was nobody else like him, nobody looked him, nobody sounded like him, he was a genius, for me there wi...

Re: skin cancer

I'm currently having treatment for skin cancer, I went to a clinic on Soi 55' the guy took a very quick look, all of 5 seconds and said you have skin cancer, it must be cut out now, very blunt and straight to the point, I didn't like his attitude and because it was in a very sensitive place at the b...

Re: San Paolo Hospital Hua Hin - Warning

Unfortunately I have had to use all the Hospitals here in the 7 yrs I've lived here, and they all have good and bad points, but there's one theme runs through them all, they all over subscribe pills for even the most Minor ailments, I don't mind paying the Doctors fee, but when he says I am going to...

Re: The ever-improving state of Hua Hin's roads

I haven't seen any improvement in the roads at all, I live north of Town and they have spent months changing the roads from soi 55 heading north, putting in a cement central island with gaps here and there to do U turn, it's just as dangerous as it was before, I see accidents almost daily, if your h...

Re: Why Are There so Many Gay Men in Thailand?

Having lived here for many years I think there are a lot of Gay Thai Men here, it's just they are not so in your face as in Bangkok or Pattaya, I have a Thai friend who has worked in the Hotel trade here for 10 years, and he says you would not believe what goes on in the Hotel rooms, he reckons 90% ...

Re: Need a new kitchen

I got my kitchen from Kvik, and was very impressed with the fitting, I am extremely difficult to please and was ready to complain about everything, as normally nothing goes right having work done in Thailand, but no I couldn't fault it, I got the grey and black speckled Granite and it hasn't marked.

Re: Lapa Hotel Hua Hin

The Lapa is not in the best location, but it's nice and trendy, one I can recomend is Rest Detail, a great Boutique hotel in a quiet location, and I would think similar price to Lapa.

Re: What's the current beach situation for short term tourists?

The whole story has been blown out of proportion, there are still plenty of sunbeds on the Beach, and you can still buy food on the Beach, on Khao Takiab Beach there are now a number of proper Restaurants right up to the Beach, instead of all the old Shacks selling Food. All they have done is tidy e...

As long as you spend money on them, they will go with you, no matter what you look like or how old you are.

Re: Looking to make new friends here in Hua Hin

Hi I'm in my mid 50's from the UK, been living here for 7 yrs, I also don't do the bar scene, which does make it harder to meet friends, it's always good to talk to someone new so if you like we could meet for a coffee, if nothing else I can probably give you a few tips on the in's and out's of livi...
