Why? Do you mean because it is a well lit, clean, safe parking structure with plenty of parking?

 

 

Yes, that's my experience too. Always good parking at BluPort as it never that busy. Because it is so big, it's never full, especially if you go mid-week.

The parking is a shocker there.

I must admit Bluport confuses me. On the one hand I'm told no-one goes there on the other parking is a shocker. Do people just go and sit in their cars all day?

I agree.  I actually spoke with the second-in-command in mall management last week.  I explained that motorbike parking used to be fine, but then all of the shop workers started parking in there too.  I suggested he expand the parking area somewhat into the largely unused reserved car parking area for the hotel.  We'll see if anything happens.

what used to be good is now <deleted>. The solution was simple just tell the workers to stop parking there.

Not to sound overly harsh but if you read the article, it states quite clearly and succinctly that the service will be only "for visa renewal [...] for tourists staying less than 90 days and for expats to do 90 day reports."

It was suspended indefinitely as of January, apparently due to concerns over hacking threats directed at government websites.

Oops, sorry - my mistake. According to reports I've just noticed on here and other websites, online 90-day reporting is back up and running as of a few days ago.

No, no office does Retirement Visas; they might, however, do Retirement Extensions.....

So thi office is permanent or just until the big building outside of Hua Hin is finished and

opened?  I see that a big building is getting built that is several Kms from the city core.

Not a great location, but I guess the thought is that it will serve the Hua Hin and surrounding

areas.

Geezer

It's basically badly designed as are the entrances to each floor -Market village is far easier to park.

I'd have to disagree. There is more available parking at Bluport and I find the spaces are easier to get in and out of - especially the ones where you can drive straight in without any complicated manoeuvring. As for the entrance to the floors, I can't see what you mean. If you park on a level where there is direct entrance to a floor you just walk straight in, if you park on an intermediate level you walk up or down a flight of stairs or take the lift - just like Market Village.

Not sure about it being permanent (is anything?) but the plan seems to be that it should be there for the foreseeable future. The office in Bluport is due to open May 9 and the new office building you refer to is due to open at the end of May (based on latest reports). The two are designed to serve quite different purposes.
