    Hua Hin
  1. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hua_Hin_District#Environment: The quality of the waters of the Gulf of Thailand off central Hua Hin were rated "fair" in 2015 by the Pollution Control Department. But, the report noted that "...the main tourism areas, namely Cha–Am Beach, ... and Hua Hin Beach, ... should be consistently monitored, since enterococci [fecal] bacteria levels exceeded the standard...." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_Thailand#Water_quality Thailand State of Pollution Report, 2015 http://infofile.pcd.go.th/mgt/PollutionReport2015_en.pdf
  2. No alcohol sales for 9 days in Hua Hin??????

    I think you miss the larger issue. For many of us, bars are our social clubs. There we meet friends, play pool, watch sports, practice our Thai, etc. Many of us don't drink. When sales are forbidden, the bars are shut. A one-day shutdown is no big deal, but it is an irritant.
  3. No alcohol sales for 9 days in Hua Hin??????

    An immediate question, if true, is: does this pertain solely to HH or is it regional or nationwide? It would not surprise me if this was implemented nationwide. If not, there will be heavy traffic to Cha-Am.
  4. Used Books

    There are a couple more I know of but they are hard to find and not esp cheap: one in a restaurant on the HH train station roundabout. Another in a small shop in the rear of the Grand Night Market (mkt closed Tu).
  5. Used Books

    See https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Hua_Hin#Buy
  6. Where to buy acetone

    น้ำยาอะซิโทน nám-yaa-à~sí~toon Are you making meth?
  7. คนขอทาน

    My impression is that it is not pejorative. I have not asked anyone to confirm this directly, but no one seems to take offense. (My criterion for a person being a "ban nok" (rustic) is if they live in a village with no 7-Eleven. More to do with where they live rather than who they are.)
  8. คนขอทาน

    I refer to rural poor folks (the majority of the world's population) as คนบ้านนอก. No Thai has yet corrected me.
  9. 15k baht in lady drinks, assuming that the girl gets 50 baht per drink, is 300 drinks, or ten per day. Does not sound very likely.
  10. Learn Thai the rapid way - anyone tried it?

    As their workshop is in CM, I would recommend AUA in CM instead. Much cheaper, in person, and you get to make new friends as well.
  11. Flights from Hua Hin to Kuala Lumpur get a little closer

    1. This itinerary is a loser. 2. New flights are good news if you have never heard of global warming.
  12. Ferry Pattaya - Hua Hin

    Uh, be careful...Roong Reuang runs a daily bus from Pattaya to HH and HH to Pattaya. Both leave at 11:00 and take 4-5 hours. The ferry leaves Pattaya at 10:00 and leaves HH at 12:20. So the times are not compatible. I am not sure what this Yellow Bus is you refer to. I think it no longer travels to the western seaboard.
  13. Hua Hin Bus Station

    Jonathon is correct. Roong Reuang Bus Co runs buses to BKK airport (many daily) and Pattaya (once daily) from their exclusive bus terminal north of the airport. It is next to a HH post office and the Koncept furniture store (large sign). The BKS main bus station is between Soi 96 and 98 as shown on the map. Long distance north, including Bangkok, and south. Minivans leave from many places to various locations. E.g., a minivan servicing Kanchanaburi leaves from Market Village. See https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Hua_Hin#Get_in
  14. Beaches in Thailand are all public, not private,
  15. If you want spices in fancy packaging, go to Gourmet Market in Bluport Shopping Centre or OTOP at the corner of Soi 61. If you want to buy spices like Thais do, go to the Chat Chai fresh market in town centre.
