Re: Taxi to airport early 27/3 or late 26/3

From my own experience. Last year I went to the airport with the last bus, I had flight at about 7 am. Though it was 5 times cheaper then taking a taxi, I had to spend long and boring night at the crowdy airport entrance hall near a 7/11 not being able to get into the duty free area, etc. as my chec...

Re: Vietnamese brewed coffee found in Khao Takiab

Me too. But as I have written, despite they use the same coffeemaker, the taste - to my great regret - is not the same.

Re: Vietnamese brewed coffee found in Khao Takiab

Thanks to the recommendations above I went and found the Yummy Corner. Well, their coffee is good, they grind it right in front of you and it's stong and fresh. I went there for the vietnamese style coffee which I got addicted to in Vietnam 3 years ago. Thought the coffee is quite good, it's still m...

Re: Kanchanaburi border open for visa runs

After revising google satellite photos I must admit that Frank Hovis and Gérard are right and my coordinates were wrong. Seems like in the end of the journey I took the correct turn left and then didn't look at the map at all.

Re: Kanchanaburi border open for visa runs

I know for sure that people on the 10th of January paid 700 baht there. We were charged 900 each and when I tried to say that it should have been 700 baht, officers said: it used to be 700 but raised upt o 900 due to bla-bla-bla... I also noticed that the amounts in their notebook were all like 900,...

Yes, I found them on two other different forums and used myself to make a route in google maps. Got right to the place.

Re: What brought you to Hua Hin?

Strange that you paid 12.000 bahts for a studio in Prachuap. I live alone too, but I prefer a house and I found a furnished one for 5000/month, no luxury but comfortable, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, air in one bedroom only, on 400 m2 land. I spent about three days driving around on my bike but didn't succ...

Re: What brought you to Hua Hin?

The town is really nice, I still have good friendship relations with an old lady, the owner of the house I first rented in Prachuap, with an old man from Austria - my neighbour in 2010 - who I go to visit every year. However, there not many places to spend an evening playing pool or listening to liv...

Re: What brought you to Hua Hin?

Me and my friend decided to go to warm countries to spend our 6 winter months in 2010. The plan was to go to Thailand for the first 3 months and then move to Vietnam for the second half. We chose a small town Prachuap Khiri Khan, 100km to the South from Hua Hin as we wanted to stay away from tourist...

Re: Meeting young people (20-45 years)

Not so many younger people like HH, I guess. Most prefer Pattaya, Phuket, etc. Too quiet here.

Though I do love Hua Hin, coming here for the fourth time already, 6 months each and I am still 31:)
