Re: Driving Lessons

I don't know if they do scooter teaching as well. My wife got her driving licence there. They have cars with dual controls. They first teach on the track and then move to the highways which is good as in Thailand you only have to be able to drive on a track to pass your test. The test does NOT inclu...

Re: Driving Lessons

There is an official driving school on the palau-O road (about a kilometer past the gasoline station going towards the by-pass). It has it;s own circuit and organizes driving tests to obtain a licence. It's not really expensive, about 5,000 Baht for 10 lessons including driving test and licence.

Re: Food Trivia

Sorry if it seemed vitriolic that was certainly not my intention. I have tried Sunday Roasts at at least 10 different restaurants in Hua Hin. Some are very good, some are OK and some are not so good. I just had a very bad experience at Palm Bistro. As for the Loempia's of course there are country va...

Re: Food Trivia

Loempia's are nothing like spring rolls. They contain a completely different filling, are much bigger and need to be served with a good sambal. As for Palm bistro there I had the worst roast lunch I have ever had in my life! The meat was fine but the rest!!! When it was served I mentioned to the wai...

Hua Hin Food Trivia

I have been living in Hua Hin for quite a few years now and have tried many restaurants and many types of food here. Of course Thai Food is freely available and can be extremely delicious but as a European I also love some European Foods. Any food, whatever the nationality, is only as good as the co...

Re: Buying a SIM card at Hua Hin airport

As far as I know you can only get a drink and very limited snacks at Hua Hin airport.

I think it was Floyd that said: If a wine is not good enough to drink then it is not good enough to cook with!

Re: Good, reasonably priced wine

I bought a bottle of 5 friends wine from the Macro today and have just tried it. Two sips were enough, the rest went down the sink. It is worse than Mon Clair and that is saying something! I still have a bad taste in my mouth!

Re: Dutch pedophile operating in Hua Hin gets 22 years

The Dutch Courts would have told him not to be a naughty boy and left it at that. Thank God the Thai police got him!

Re: Golf trip near to Thailand

There is a very nice golf course in no-mans land on the border with Malaysia just past Hat Yai (there is also a very nice course just outside Hat Yai). You can take a half hour taxi ride from the border to the ferry port and get a ferry to Langkawi (about 45 minutes). There are several beautiful gol...

Re: Subway

I don't think there are any more. I stopped going to the one in Bluport because I was deliberately short changed. I paid with a 1,000 Baht. I didn't trust the guy behind the counter so I counted my change as I walked away. I noticed that I was 100 Baht short. I turned around but before I could walk ...

Re: Advice : where to rent golf equipment and buy cheaper green fees ?

The Golf agencies normally do not offer cheaper green fees they will however provide free transport to and from the courses. You will normally only get a cheaper green fee if you play with a member or with one of the Hua Hin societies but then you will have to provide your own transport. Both the cl...

60 years on - A sad, sad day

Today, 60 years have passed since the Munich air disaster. I was a sad, sad day in my life. It became even sadder 2 weeks later when big Duncan died. The first match I attended at Old Trafford was the championship decider against Blackpool in 1953/54. Blackpool had all their stars playing (Stanley M...

Re: Best Hua Hin Steak 2017

Everyone has their own idea of what a good steak is. Americans tend to use a BBQ whilst Europeans will grill a steak in piping hot butter. I personally prefer the European style which you will get in most top Italian restaurants. Antonio & Carlo's in Hua Hin are both more than excellent.
