  1. Pressure from the Big Hotels in Hua Hin, it was just a matter of time.
  2. A long time ago you could fly Bangkok Hua Hin, Hua Hin to Koh Samui, Samui to Phuket. Then it flew back in the evening stopping at each place on the way. Got you into Bangkok about 8.30 pm cost was about 2000 Baht was really good if you were getting a night flight home. Then the Airport closed supposedly to be upgraded but nothing ever happened. I think another airline tried to open a Bangkok flight but the ticket cost was to much.
  3. That’s the problem with yearly health cover, I had the same, when you get sick or costly they are not obligated to renew it. I have a 15 year contract now cand throw me out.

    Bank charges

    No, your not charged to use other Banks machines, and your not charged if you withdraw from any part of the Country by your own bank
  5. If they get any money, be nice if they would buy a few dustbins for Hua Hin, you won’t find one, or a public loo, not like Cha am Bins every 200 yards.

    Bank charges

    Read my post again, I’m asking a Question not talking about me. Your money isn’t sitting in your Branch, it’s invested all around the world, in currency, Bonds, Stocks etc. So regardless of what province you find yourself in, it should be charge free, and if the first reply is correct,it soon will be.

    Bank charges

    I think banks make enough already without robbing people on 9000 Baht a month salaries. The charge applies to all rich foreigners and the less well off. The charge is because you take your money from a machine outside the boundary why.
  8. Well said, wouldn’t want any kids getting hurt.
  9. Not just Hua Hin, spotted on north beach Cha am last Saturday.
  10. How do the Banks get away with charging for ATM withdrawals, I understand that using another Banks machine you will incur a charge, my issue is using your own Banks machine outside of your own Branch town you get charged. It’s as if they are saying your money is in your Branch in a box. Thai people are getting ripped off, already on low salaries they are getting charged 15 or 20 Baht for every withdrawal outside of their location. I can only comment on the Bangkok Bank but it seems to me to be a banking scam.
  11. A few years ago my friend was bitten near the police station. He was treated at Bangkok hospital, the first jab was 19000 baht. I thought it was a mistake so went back with him to check. The pharmacist told me that no it was not a mistake that was the cost of the main anti Rabies jab followed by more injections at a much lower cost. I think the city council should pick up the tab as they are turning a blind eye, nothing new in that.
  12. Did they ever arrest anyone for the Hua hin bombs last year.

    Managing the Infrastructure Needs of Hua Hin

    Try putting a few dustbins around town that might help. Take a trip to Cha am and you will see bins all over town, seems to be very well managed. Also why not throw in a nice clean public toilet as we don't have any.
  14. I can't understand why they can't make more U turn gaps stopping both directions U turning in the same slot. It's a nightmare trying to U turn and not been able to see the oncoming traffic.
