Re: 200 Baht Admission to Sam Phan Nam Floating Market

I actually quite like the occasional stroll around sam phan nam, and visitors we have seem to like it too. Next time I'm out that way I'll make a point of visiting just to refuse to go in. A sort of protest. I don't know if they'll eventually notice any loss of farang customers but it won't hurt to ...

Re: Fire brigade response time ...or lack of it

AFAIK the correct number for the fire service is 199. 191 is police emergency, so calling that number may well cause delays as they forward messages to fire and/or ambulance. Police 191 Fire 199 Ambulance 1669 There are recent news reports of it taking 20 minutes or more to even get through on 191 i...

Re: The new Venezia Shopping complex

Shopped at Villa this morning. The staff confirmed that this branch will close at the end of this month due to lack of custom. Staff will transfer to newly opened branch near Pure Mall. Was at Villa yesterday. The staff I spoke with said maybe it would be another one or two months before it closes....

Re: The WOW Science Thread

I think the solar panels are actually Philae's skin and don't deploy as such. It's just that Philae is sitting in a position where it only gets a small amount of sunshine as the comet revolves.

Re: best place to shop for household items ??

I must display my stupidity. I've lived in HH for more than 12 years and I can't make head nor tail of the map above!! Yeah. The road that isn't really there probably adds to the confusion. That's the one that runs to the right (east) of the body of water on the map. There is a track there but I do...

Re: Wanted - 2nd hand bicycle

T & D Bike Rental on Naebkehart Road had some ex rental ladies and mens bikes for sale when I was there a month ago. I bought one (Trek Navigator 2.0) which I'm quite pleased with. They are forum sponsors and you can find them from this link: http://www.huahinmedia.com/huahin-bike-rental.php.

Re: The Digital Surgery

I think many, if not all, VPN services have policies forbidding torrent downloads of pirated movies and other copyright material. It's not difficult for them to find you. I used Witopia for a while and an article on their site explained how it works.

2. 5 p.m. - Loy Kratong themed float procession starting at the weather bureau and going along Phetkasem to the clock tower Wat Hua Hin area. So, have they changed the route this year? My eldest granddaughter is taking part in the parade, and has been told she will be taking the usual route, which ...

There are also a couple of other events hosted by the Tetsaban. 1. 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Kratong making contest and display....

Re: Rail crossing upgrades

Another one like that would be nice at soi 34. If you look at Google maps soi 34 looks like it crosses the railway as well but you'd be disappointed if you took your car up there. Or even your motorbike now.

Re: Rail crossing upgrades

There's at least one unofficial crossing in Hua Hin, around about soi 20 odd, someone has put some old railway ties around the tracks and locals use it on motorbikes to cut through to the canal road. There is/was also one at Hua Hin soi 34 (by the Ford dealer). I crossed there the other day and the...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Does "dry" mean showers rather than constant rain? It's been raining off and on in HH for most of the afternoon so far. In fact we have light rain at the moment.

Re: Looking for vegetarian restaurant in HH

I saw this place in Soi 6 today. It must be the one referred to by Moater in post 3 above. It's maybe 150 meters on left from Phetchkasem. Should be easy to spot.
