Re: CTH - Premier League broadcaster

Couple of things: Is the office that 'easyas' mentions off the Petchkasem Road the one opposite the baguette shop with the red railings? With True Visions you can also use a PVR to record and stop live TV does anyone know if CTH has this facility? In fact I don't think I have seen a DVD recorder in ...

Double Glazing


I am looking to have my doors and windows replaced with upvc double glazing.

I understand that Hua Hin Glass can supply remove and install doors and windows, can anyone comment on their work/price and does anyone have experience of any other local suppliers?

Re: Dusit Thani carvery

A truly gastronomic feast in beautiful surroundings. If you are really lucky you may even get to see Santa dan...

Re: Shirt Colour

I read that Thais, especially of Chinese descent, have a very strong belief for Feng Shui Colours (The Science of the Wind and Water) and that each day is attributed to a certain colour as well as an auspicious planet. The list was as follows:- Sunday Phra Arthit (Sun God) Red Monday Phra Jan (Moon ...

Re: Rheumatism and Arthritis

I have psoriatic arthritis and am on a drug called Methotrexate, which is the only thing that I have found significantly reduces pain, although it can cause very serious side effects as it is used to treat cancer. When in Thailand, for 6 months of the year, the pain and swelling decreases and I am a...

One thing you might also want to consider is the use of an on-line banking facility. I use and would recommend Kasikorn. They have a service that works really well. I had no problem walking into the Hau Hin Branch and opening an account and obtaining a Kasikorn cash card. I regularly transfer money ...

Hi thanks for the responses,

I clean my filters every month and don't find this an erroneous or difficult task. I am looking for some assistance with a local Hua Hin A/C engineer who can maintain & repair. Are there any others apart from crazy88 and Nereus' recommendations?

Air Conditioning Unit Maintenance & Re gassing

One of my Samsung A/C units has started to blow out warm air not cold. I think it needs re gassing and probably a service. Can anyone recommend someone in Hua Hin who is competent, reasonable and can speak English?
