Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

Re: RE: Re: Permanent Residency information

what would be the benefit of a PR? Does it mean you dont have to show up every 90 days? Or you dont have to renew your visa every year? No 90 days. No yearly renewals.

Re: Big Bike Insurance

I believe Locktons have an office in Silom Rd Bangkok. They are a large global insurance company

The dealer i bought the bike from in Hua Hin Kawasaki MotoAholic were helpful enough to provide a competitive insurance quote for my insurance renewal.

Nice after sales service:)

Re: Khao Soi in Hua Hin?

There has been good Khao Soi at MV in the basement level food court for the last 6 months, 55 baht gets you a large bowl. Tamarind market in Takiab has a vendor selling smaller bowls of Khao Soi on a Friday/Saturday/Sunday evening for 45 Baht.
