Re: Design Ideas for Thai Style House

It's 1 rai. The land next door (both sides) is empty for now and we had a proper survey done.

Boonthavorn did have tiles that were amazing, only to be told the ones I liked the most are not continued. Hopefully the replacements are still available once we order.

Re: Design Ideas for Thai Style House

Damn I've already ordered 20mm blocks 555 Just discovered Boonthavorn is indeed a good option even if they are slightly more pricey. One annoying trick though - I was only shown expensive options presumably based on commissions. Then discovered more stuff around a corner at half the price. Sales sta...

Re: Design Ideas for Thai Style House

I will have an architects design, I just need to provide plans to a Thai builder and go over the local/compliant equivalent and see where we land. Have been looking online but so much of it is either too traditional or far too contemporary. Looking through the real estate sites for-sales (FazWaz etc...

Design Ideas for Thai Style House

I am building a new house in Hua Hin and looking for design ideas which include both modern and traditional Thai styles. So, for example, modern rendered brick walls and Thai style roof, high ceilings, open plan between living & outdoor areas. Can anyone share examples of some houses, designs, i...

Re: Flights to/from Hua Hin Airport & other domestic locations

This airport website breaks my heart, it could be so much more appealing not to mention the information is years out of date. Side note: I'm a prof. software developer and would almost consider creating an alternative site from scratch for free :) http://www.huahin-airport.com/ I tried contacting Ph...

Re: Flights to/from Hua Hin Airport & other domestic locations

Another glimmer of hope for the airport opening up to proper international flights. I do agree with their view of focusing on international routes - no point having a Phuket connection if I land in from Sydney and can't get a link to HH within hours. Runway upgrade again mentioned but not plans for ...

Re: Best massage in Hua Hin?

Narul Nashita massage is exactly what I was also going to suggest. Most of the women are good-great, still a tiny element of hit and miss as usual. Purely based on google reviews it seems there may be a couple of good ones around the Cicada market area but maybe others can confirm, I've never tried ...

Hua Hin Soul Country Club golf course

I haven't actually played this course but I did drive up to the clubhouse to take a look. Nearly broke my suspension in the process! It's evident this course needs a whole lot of love ;) It sits in a great location, quick stroll over the road to the beach camp and cafe after a round! I only hope the...

Re: Hua Hin dual-track rail project to go ahead

Thanks for the local insights and the You Tube link (had no idea it had monthly drone updates!). Progress looks good, though I expected the Hua Hin raised station to have been a lot further along by now. I last visited in April 22. If anyone does discover information confirming the faster train serv...

Re: Clean Hua Hin's beaches movement - Trash Hero

I'm new to this thread.. what a great idea! Glad someone is keeping trash off the beaches, thanks for all your efforts! Can I ask about the brown water along the main Hua Hin beaches? As far as I could determine last visit, the way it was explained to me was that because of the beach horse riding se...

Bang Sue to Hua Hin Dual Track Trains

I'm hoping some kind people who are actually located in and around Hua Hin that might be able to provide regular, accurate updates on the dual track work and any new train schedules to/from Bangkok they have inside knowledge about? The booking sites will likely post updates but far too late to help ...

Hi from Melbourne

Love Hua Hin every time I visit, the beaches & sights, the food and the people. And the odd round of golf - first ever caddy & golf experience, playing like a king. Hope to build in the area before long. Really keen on watching the airport progress (utopia: direct international flights into ...

Re: Flights to/from Thailand bargains, news & status updates

How about international flights to Hua Hin airport? I've tried to contact Phoenix group multiple times without any luck and the airport has no online contact I can find. Someone must know when the airport is likely to be ready in terms of international standards and what airlines are coming online b...
