I've been on the roads.  I've never been comfortable.

Read again what I wrote - but to spell it out, the ferry maybe comfortable but will not be reliable, the roads may not be comfortable but will be more reliable.

whats your point?  is it crap because its not in the middle of Hua Hin?  its actually much better at Khao Takiab for access.  Unless you like the traffic jams in the middle of Hua Hin?

Point is that it is not where it is as stated in the newspaper article, so people reading it are aware of the fact! I'm not judging the location but the reporting.

and who, pray, would want to go on a mini holiday from HH to Pattaya?

 

i know plenty of thai who would want to do that. remember that thai who can afford enjoy these short sanook trips and they don't moan about the fee. i will not be one of them, i *dislike* pattaya and the 2 times i went to Hua Hin i wasn't that excited either. i prefer bang saphan (yai) :stoner:

" Ferry arrives safely in Hia Hin "

Maybe they were scared of " Pirates " so the Navy intervened with an escort ship.

Or were the company worried the boat would sink, so had a suitably sized rescue vessel on close call ?

Does it have a bar onboard?

 

If not I would rather drive

Has your limo got a bar on board?

The sale of alcohol is banned on all ferries and piers in Thailand.  Advertising alcohol isn't which is why Raja have a giant floating Singha billboard for a boat.

 

You will have to buy your beer from the 7eleven across the road before you board.

Then why can one buy a beer on Naton-Donsak Seatrans ferries.

Still they manage to operate high speed Catamarans between Chumphon, Koh Tao, Koh Phanghan and Samui 3 times daily. For several years. Never seen a cancelation (probably has been) 

This is true, but many have no idea about this successful service

2. The ferry is a lightweight catamaran and therefore a bit sensitive against wind and waves. It can easily happen that a trip will be canceled because of bad weather.

 

 

Or, in keeping with local style, they'll just ignore the bad weather once the service gets up and running fully. And then one of these days, there'll be a lot of tourists dumped into the ocean offshore or into lifeboats, if they actually end up with any serviceable ones onboard.

Strictly for tourism purposes, Hua Hin would probably be better advised to build a new regional airport, a little inland, linking it to Isan, Chiang Mai and Malaysia without the need to go through Bangkok. At NOK Air rates, that *would* be an interesting venture.

I thought that there was an existing airport in Hua Hin?!

Another reason they need calm sea conditions to keep the passengers calm.

 

Obviously some captains might assess sea conditions on a totally different scale :shock1:
