Re: Noisy kite at night!

They're both down today and they're too high to get a photo of unless you have an 800mm telephoto lens.

They seem to serve no practical purpose whatsoever aside from producing noise.

Re: Noisy kite at night!

Noisy kite season has kicked in again - two of them visible from our place, not loud enough to keep you awake at night though.

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

I'm not going to engage in the attempt at sparking an argument on what is purely football tribalism and nothing more. As for the word I would need to see the Thai version to be able to translate, as you know, I don't do Facebook. Edit: Rethinking this as you appear to be reading a lot more into it t...

Re: Coral Hotel -- rumors of ownership change?

Yes, the Coral is now a Thai owned long weekend place only. Its desolate the rest of the time like every other resort here. Anything known to have closed permanently (other then Country Road ....sniff....such beautiful ads....)?? Country Road, Blue Bar, Bew Beem, not sure on Sabai Sabai. The resorts...

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Have we lost people (due to immigration I suspect more then virus)? No more than usual for this time of year when there are no tourists here anyway. Are hotels, restaurants, entertainment beginning to open? No, there are more closures due to the lack of business. Have land prices reduced? (man's go...

Re: Dentist Bang Saphan area

Have been to the one past the Thursday market twice, they've expanded the surgery now so the wait isn't so bad.

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

That last bit makes no sense, I thought every arrival from abroad was quarantined for 2 weeks.

We'll probably stick to watching on TV this season - no point driving all the way there to find out you can't get in to the stadium.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I think this one was answered before our server migration .. but the French resort has been sold to a Thai who has dropped the price by 70% and now it is full with Bangkokians on long weekends. This seems to be the future for all tourism in Thailand.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

The bars can now actually open fully, but without any tourists - and the govt banning them from travelling here, it is unlikely they will survive.
