Re: Tanawit Hotel vs Tanawit House

I haven't been inside Tanawit for quite a while as the friends I used to visit have left. I think quite a few of the rooms have been sold as Condos, some people have bought two and knocked through. I do however frequently use Soi Tanawit, the approach road. I think "Tanawit House" is the property ab...

Re: Visa run from Hua Hin...which one?

Kanchanaburi certainly would be easiest. I have done an organised Visa Run there a couple of times with the shop at Condochain, "One Tour", there are others available but I have found this firm to be pleasant and reliable. Think their phone is 081-8192212 or 091-8214826. They give an all-in price - ...

Re: Pros & Cons of Kite Surfing

Hua Hin is a family resort and I have seen so, so many near accidents in recent years where people swimming or paddling in the sea have been terrified or nearly hit by irresponsible Kiters and people walking on the beach nearly hi...

Re: Looking for a nice place to get in shape// Fitness

I have been using @Lectic for a couple of years - they are having a bit of a much needed upgrade at the moment which is good news. I am happy there, I like the staff they are friendly and there are some good classes included in your membership.

Re: Hin Lek Fai Monkeys

I am told that the monkeys in Hua Hin area are crab-eating macaque (Macaca fascicularis). At quiet times you can see them diving and swimming in the sea at Khao Takiab. They can pull the shellfish off the rocks with their very strong fingers. They annoy the fishermen on the creek behind the mountain...
