Re: Monday night buffet at Dusit Thani

The Dusit used to be great :|

Having looked at Mc D menu wit a double burger ( Bic Mac with a slice of cardboard bacon claiming to be " Angus steak " with no fries or drink and a hideous coffee for 470 Thb !! I Don't think the Dusit too bad. Would be a shame if it has gone down hill.

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

HD wrote "I use Booking.com and pay when I arrive. That way there's no problem." Thats all good HD. If owners owners state that they will contact you prior to reconfirm with 7 days grace from that point say 30 days of your arrival. In the meantime you are booked and if you do not reconfirm within th...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

Thanks for that Migrant. 4 nights is bad enough but what if it was 2 weeks @ 10k night !!!! I will be having a really good look at their contracts to see who is responsible in such cases. Perhaps the owner/renter was not advised of the cancellation or has a complete no refund policy or both. Whichev...

Re: Hua Hin Condo owners fined for short term rentals

Had the same thing myself with another booking agent and had to go through multiple people by email and phone before getting a result and an apology . Having used Expedia I have only experienced either them ...

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Yep Either that or I am still living in an age when you had to walk 3 miles in the freezing cold with a pocket full of 10p and 2p coins to the red phone box outside the post office to call granny, who would be waiting at her posh friends house ( only one in the street that had a phone) then keep you...
