Re: Should I believe her?

I think the OP gets the picture now, pretty much everyone concurs bar girl = Trouble. How about this, learn some thai and go meet the 1000's of nice down to earth office or shop girls. Remember thou you will never be more important than the family. And at some point you will pay a bit as well. OR ju...

Re: Visiting Bali

Just got back from Bali yesterday. All the above is pretty right Kuta is filled with Ozzies, and its a party town that starts at about 11pm. All the normal tricks there like any where. Taxi drivers are the worst get a meter taxi. I find Sunar to be a better place, plenty of places to stay. from $30 ...

Re: Hua Hin crime rate?

Welcome aboard!!! I have lived here now about 5+ years and these are the things I have seen. 2 Thai's came to our complex tried to do a house invasion on my neighbour, they had a hand gun but the owner thought it looked like a replica kept the door locked and they went away. The next week they were ...

Re: Suspect "Police" house visit in Hua Hin

About 3 years ago this happened to me. Door to door MIB in uniform on bike. Asking very politely for id and if I rented or owned house. Said they were keeping track of US.
This was after 2 armed attempts in our complex so maybe just looking after us?

Re: Retiring to Thailand early, do I have enough?

Pray let me in on the secret, I will appreciate any advice after all I have paid in tax for 35 years! The oz old age pension is portable, you will lose the clean energy supplement and rent assistance after 6 months. And if you are on disability you have to apply for unlimited portability otherwise ...

Re: Another Aussie saying hello...

Re: Retiring to Thailand early, do I have enough?

Back to the op question, With what i have learned over the last five years in Thailand. Go rent a place first, there are plenty of condo's around for 10-15 k a mth. If the rent your place out you will have something to come back to in case. Depends on what it rents for vs pension drop. And you will ...

Re: Another Aussie saying hello...

Glad you made it my fellow ozzie !!!! As you settle in you will learn heaps, and meet plenty of ex pats. I think the one piece of advice for you is be very wary of some ex pats, some survive on ripping the newbies. I was done over by 2 brits when I first got here. You know the seen, they have the fl...

Re: Tour, companion and massage Girl

Don't worry Peter, the post above is just suggesting that the title sounds a bit fishy. Now to the best of my knowledge there is no such service as such in Hua Hin. But if you list all the things you are looking to do we could probably help out with where the best things are. If you tell us your bud...
