Re: Agoda hotel descriptions warning

Another gem from Agoda today as we've just arrived at our fifth destination on this trip. Booked four rooms for six adults, two children. One couple has a baby (4 year old) which stays in the same room. The hotel presented them with bill for 600 baht extra for the baby's breakfast for two days and ...

Re: Agoda hotel descriptions warning

Another problem we've found, when booking 'budget' accommodation is the photos were often taken about 10 years ago, and in the actual room you can find evidence that the room once looked like the photos, but are certainly not in the pristine condition the photos suggest.

Re: Hua Hin City 2018

I am only talking facts. I could and have quoted many instances where they have directed supporters to the wrong stadium - 2016 was their worst year, and as I've said the evidence is still there for all to see. There is no intention to offend anybody - please accept my sincere apologies if you've be...

Re: Hua Hin City 2018

No, you were going to the City Stadium, as per the club's poster, which is still posted here. As for taxis, I never actually saw one. My original intention, if you remember was to travel by train, but I drove because they said there would be no taxis.

Re: Hua Hin City 2018

Where you were sent to the wrong stadium by the club's information, and I took you to the correct stadium. I think the club did that 6 times that season. When we went to IPE Samut Sakhon, the actual stadium was over 20 miles from where the club sent us. It's all documented on the various Hua Hin Cit...

Didn't Dusit Thani Football Academy morph into Black Mountain Football Academy?

Re: Beach Walks - Now & Then

It was lovely until the shoe disintegrated. Just me and hundreds of washed up jellyfish. Quite funny actually, a few sunbed operators came running down the beach to try to entice me on to their sunbeds. I would guess beach vendors outnumbered beach users by 20 to 1. I will complete the trip (test dr...

Re: Coming Soon - Beach Walks - Now & Then

So, the adventure begins. My intention being to replicate my 2014 beach walks, trying to replicate photos taken 4.5 years ago, and identifying any differences. My initial walk should have been the longest. I would park my car at Market Village, then walk to Soi 61 Beach road and enter the beach betw...

Re: Coming Soon - Beach Walks - Now & Then

I was determined to try the lift, just because I could - I'll probably use the stairs in future, although it will be great for Mrs BB crossing Petchkasem there. Very slow, so no real advantage in using it if you are able to use the stairs. Don't worry guys, the first batch of photos are now ready fo...

Re: Govt to introduce 450 baht pet registration scheme, 25k fine for non compliance

I think we discussed this on here before when they were considering it, and came to the same conclusion then as well.

Re: Coming Soon - Beach Walks - Now & Then

You're right - I've seen them wearing them at my dentist also. My doctor has definitely banned me from wearing crocs :oops:

The good news is, Mrs BB has resuscitated them, and they are a pair again :D
