Re: Google Maps

I think there's only been 2 occasions that Google maps has let me down. It's served me well. However the funniest instruction I had recently on the way to Nongkhai - "IN ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SIX KILOMETERS KEEP RIGHT AT THE FORK!"

Re: Renewing a UK passport in Thailand

As I'm in the UK, I was asked by a family member if I could renew her UK passport whilst here.
Renewed online, posted her expired passport and received the new one in just 13 days after the application.. So I'm guessing any delays to renewing in Thailand is not down to UK procedures.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Haha. You got me. Yep the lack of rainfall at my house has been mentioned multiple times. However that wasn't an interest in the weather rather than peeing off everyone who was coping with floods!

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

It never ceases to amaze me the things people get excited about1111 Who is excited about what. I don't understand Just the ongoing debate about what time to take rain measurements from, how many millimetres fell when and where!! I just appears to me that some must be so bored as to take an interest.

Re: Travel to Huay Xai - Laos

I'm not sure this is at all relevant as Muay Xai appears to be an intrinsic part of your vist.
I'm sure you're aware of the high speed train in Laos now. Vientienne to Luang Prabang in 2 hours! That used to be a 10 hour journey by road.

Re: Ferry over Gulf of Thailand 2024 >

I think the only ferry now is the Chumpon to Koh Samui which has been around for years. Even that may have stopped now!

YTS has 2 or 300 Thai movies. My family have asked for Thai downloads and there are many on YTS.

Re: HD Prime Internet TV ... problem?

Id agree about dumping HDPrime (TV). However it's worth keeping the VOD which is relatively cheap. They hold hundreds of complete series both past and present along with as many movies.
