Re: The demise of Hua Hin's computer shops

Advice has a newer shop in Cha Am south of the traffic light on the sea side of the street. Big orange frontage so it's easy to see. Also there is a local shop without much in the way of signage or storefront but they have helped me on more than one occasion. Just across from Rugthai Pharmacy on the...

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

Oakdale160.....your comments don't reflect what I have read on Thai Visa......from their point of view (and sorry, don't read much else locally) Chinese are a bunch of pigs needing behavior training. Also, if the past few months are any indication the tourist industry is in dire straights here in th...

LG HDTV Problem

Your problem is definitely with the Cable Company. You are not likely to find your
TV processes a signal differently from one channel to the next. You need to have the cable company analyse your connection and fix it.

Re: New adverts

You might want to leave anyway after you see the post I just saw advertising for ladyboy hotels or something......a bit too disgusting for me.

Where the heck is that house in the video?? Haven't seen anything that looks like that on the outside, but there are many I haven't been inside.

Re: Looking for AC Capacitor

If you have any trouble with Bluesky's directions (no offense meant) at the main traffic light in Hua Hin go one block toward the railroad station and turn right....shop is on the right.

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

Tell you what.......I play golf four times a week at Palm Hills. Notwithstanding its the slow season this is the slowest year I've ever seen there.....twelve players booked one day, 20 another. The place is virtually dead except for the clubs that have regular attendance from non-tourists.

Re: รอยุพอดี

My caddie who has worked for me the past twelve years was chiding me the other day that I should learn more Thai. Added to the fact that at 74 I can't distinguish tones, nor hear much of what is said at most other times, I have a horrible time with well intentioned "English" transliterations when th...

Re: Has Hua Hin Traffic Reached Saturation Point?

Clicked on this thinking it was new and discovered I had commented in 2016.......update! Until Blu Port opened, traffic seemed to be flowing much more smoothly downtown.....now it seems not so much. But my big story is when we moved out to Cha Am south in 2007 driving to and from Hua Hin was very pl...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

In 2005 we purchased a new house just off Soi 88 at the back of the lookout mountain. (3 br, 3 en suite bathrooms and one hallway bathroom about 300 sq mtr total with inside and nice outside kitchen, pool with spa, gorgeous woodland location, 10 min to downtown) We spent 8.5 mil on it and sold it a ...

Re: Things you had better get used to living in Thailand

Most of mine are for Americans: You won't see a lot of good beef on the supermarket shelves. If you want any all beef hot dogs or bologna you better bring them with you. Most Thais don't eat beef and Muslims raise their own. There are good steaks to be had in restaurants but be careful to ask if the...

Re: Arthritis Hand Tools

Me too, just saw this. I have the same problem and it gets resolved quickly with a thin, circular piece of round rubber type material about 5 1/2 inches in diameter. She made he own out of the stuff you put under rugs to keep them in place.
