    By Online Reporter

     

    Vendors trading on the sidewalk outside Hua Hin Wittayalai School next to Market Village have come under the spotlight of the local municipality.

     

    On Tuesday (June 28), Mr. Nopporn Wutthikul, Mayor of Hua Hin presided over a meeting among municipal officials after members of the public complained the vendors were blocking the sidewalk.

     

    The vendors sell mainly food items such as snacks and drinks, as well as other goods, to students at the end of the school day.

     

    However, the municipality has received complaints about the vendors trading in an area which should be reserved for pedestrians.

  • Highways Dept. set to spend nearly 30 M baht near PKK "U-Turn of Death"

    image.jpeg

    Picture: Siam Rath

     

    A U-turn in Muang district of Prachuap Khiri Khan on the way to southern Thailand has been dubbed "The U-Turn of Death".

     

    Road safety expert at the highways department Suphot Sermsap has been working on ways to improve the Ban Bung area where there are 15-16 accidents annually causing lots of death and injury.

     

    Two children were thrown out of a pick-up and killed at the U-turn in February last year.

     

    Now there are nearly 30 million baht plans for a new one 400 meters from the old one.

     

    image.jpeg

    Picture: Siam Rath

     

    The problem with the old one is that it is by an intersection and what with being on a fast, straight stretch accidents occur frequently.

     

    Just sealing it off is not an option as the area is densely populated and people need a uey. 

     

    Meetings have taken place with traffic police and other authorities as Suphot's plan for improvements take shape.

     

    An artist's impression of the new plan was published by Siam Rath

  • German expat and Thai wife praised for chemical free coconut cultivation at farm in Prachuap

    image.jpeg

     

    By Online Reporter

     

    A German expat and his Thai wife have received recognition by local officials for their organic, chemical free approach to growing coconuts at their plantation in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

     

    Seventy-six year old Jacob Dieter and his Thai wife, Phawinee Sukmak, (Khun Tum), 67, grow coconuts on their 13 rai of land in the Koh Lak Sub-district, Mueang Prachuap Khiri Khan.

     

    At the plantation, dubbed ‘Koko Jacob’, the couple use a non-toxic approach to farming, with no chemicals used to kill pests or weeds.

     

    Instead, Asecodes hispinarum Bouček, a larva parasitoid, are used to control the different beetles which are known to feed on young coconut shoots.

    By Online Reporter

     

    The operators of a pop up store selling cannabis and other cannabis related products have reported brisk business following demand for Thailand’s newly decriminalized herb.

     

    Mr. Thien Seng Methanopakhun, manager of 789 Thongthai Herb, a community enterprise based in Pranburi, which has opened a pop up store in Market Village Hua Hin says their products have proved a hit with customers, especially with foreigners.

     

    Mr. Thien says his store has up to ten different cannabis strains on sale, such as “OG Kush”, “Mobi Dick” and “Crescendo”. The store also sells cannabis honey, balm, brownies, and seeds for customers who wish to grow cannabis themselves.

     

    Customers need to be aged 20 and above and if people want to grow it at home, they should register with the Plook Ganja app, Mr Thien said.
