Re: Recent travel experience buying silk gifts, online check-in and bag locks.

I was on flights with connection through New York last year, and despite having locks on my bags, I found a note from US customs inside my case stating that my bag had been searched. Other than the note, there was no other signs that my case had been broken in to! My case is a quality make, and like...

Interesting comments, instead of being positive to make things better, you only can be negative and aggressive, typical Brit.

Re: All about "Dentist in Hua Hin" Useful information.

Dentists in Asia are quick to recommend a root canal. Whenever they say that to me I am out of there. I can endorse PET's recommendation for Dr. Nana, I tried her when she opened her clinic at Soi 94/3, and had an implant done. The implant has been painless, and has settled in very well.

Re: Knee Replacement

I think I saw a price for knee /hip replacement advertised in BKK hospital of 390,000. As for quality, I don't know of anyone who has had it done there.

Re: Govt: hellish airport immigration queues must end

I was stuck in the queue for 2 hours on Fri 28th July. I only saw 6 desks open in the particular section I was in. When I eventually cleared immigration, I noticed that there was a long queue for the priority pass! The reason given was that it was the King's birthday. I noticed on facebook that the ...

Re: Govt approves ten year visas for wealthy over-50s

I checked BUPA for health insurance, this could cost over 80,000 a year to include outpatient insurance. One question is that could the cash required be in a foreign currency bank account in Thailand? I agree that this would not replace the existing retirement visa, and would be a ploy to suck more ...

Re: Soi 80 bar map

Nok Yung Coffee appears to have replaced Nalida's, but there are still some signs indicating Nalida's. Can anybody confirm please? No photo for this one. This one seems to b a management buy out - the same woman is running it, but with other staff. Still the same breakfast menu with pretty strong co...

Re: Rip Off Hua Hin

Don't know what the price of Apple computers has to do with the cost of living in Hua Hin - but when I first started living here, the Hua Hin Shopping mall was the principle shopping centre. They had just completed the three lane highway from Cha-Am to Hua Hin. We had to travel to Big C at Petchabur...

Re: foreign pedestrian killed ourside market village this afternoon

There is a 'on-request' traffic light at BKK Hospital--MUCH MUCH MUCH more need at MV As BB said, these lights are switched off more often than on. When they are switched on, believe it or not, I reckon that 95% of traffic does stop at the red lights. I passed the crossing at MV earlier this aftern...

Re: Oldest bar in hua hin

There were no bars in Soi 80 / Soi hotpot when I lived there before 2000, only the restaurant about half way up existed.
