Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

Google uses simplified characters, but the picture is definitely traditional.
Characters are pronounced differently in different dialects, which is why I suspect chek pia is Hokkien.
Where are most of the Hua Hin Chinese originally descended from?

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I am guessing that Chek Pia might be the Hokkien pronunciation....

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

The Thai says rancafe, rather than the usual word for restaurant, which is interesting. I had to double check the Chinese characters as I only studied simplified and these are rather more stylised than I am used to. They read Zheng Sheng, which might be translated as Magnificent! No wonder all the C...

The best donuts in Hua Hin

What happened with this awesome little bakery on Chomsin? In previous years, they used to have the most gloriously doughy doughnuts at really cheap prices. Savoury pies were delish too These days it hardly ever seems to be open. What happened? Did the old lady pass away? I always assumed that she wa...

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

Thanks for taking the time to reply but the Koti Restaurant (Rannahan Hua Hin in Thai) is indeed on the Petchakasem Road.
I have a feeling that the super busy wooden restaurant on the corner of Naebkahan Road might be called something like See Ye Chek Bie....
Does that sound familiar to anybody??

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

Do you mean this one? https://goo.gl/maps/o1ywN8cBFrE2 Yes, that is the one, but I have never seen it empty like it is in the Google picture. :D Seems to be popular with adventurous Chinese tourists too. Does anybody have any idea what it is called? I heard that there is also a streetside pad-thai ...

Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

Can anybody tell me about the restaurant on the corner of Naebkahart Road and Night Market street. It always seems to be packed to the gills with Thai tourists so I am guessing it must be pretty good.
Any recommendations on what I should order there and how much I am likely to pay?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Handsome Hua Hin tortoise seeks fertile mate.

Just wanted to confirm that this tortoise is not in captivity. We have a big garden, and it has been living here ever since we have arrived. It seems to have a few bushes that it prefers and even though we often leave the gates wide open, it does not seem to want to leave. It is certainly not in a c...

Handsome Hua Hin tortoise seeks fertile mate.

We are lucky enough to have an Asian tortoise that has made his home in our garden. His name is Mortimer and he is yearning to meet his Isabella. The Asian tortoise is an endangered species and we would like to help him find a mate so that we can do our bit to re-populate the species. If you have a ...

GTV Cable

My GTV cable has gone down the tubes since I was last here. Picture quality is now atrocious and internet speed has dropped by about two thirds though not sure if the two are connected.
Anybody else having probs with GTV and have you been able to solve them?

Driver's license renewal, 1000 baht proof of address?

A friend went into the HH police station this morning to find out about renewing his five year driver's license. The officer took the documents he had, photocopied them and said that he also needed a police report which would cost 1000 Baht. Thant seems a bit expensive. Is that the same for everybody?
