What is the hospital situation in PKK?

 

Seriously thinking of leaving Chiang Mai after 15 years of choking myself to death.

 

But just turned 65 now I have to think about my future needs. Hospitals are plentiful here in CM.

 

Had my house valued and it's not worth any more than it was when I brought it.....so much for sale here,

but it can be sold if I accept that, and I know for sure there is an awful lot of stuff for sale in PKK right?

 

PKK being quiet would be ideal for us, don't drink or smoke....in other words ..no fun anymore lol

We were coming for a month last year but I had to cancel as I was ..well...sick !!

 

Wife's family all live in Surat Thani so it would be much closer to them than we presently are, half a day in a car should do it I reckon?

 

Thanks

Two hospitals, one on the airforce base that we can use for day to day illnesses, they do not do surgeries. Main government hospital is excellent, 50 baht for a consultation. For inpatient treatment they have the normal public wards, private rooms and vip rooms. All the specialists come from private hospitals on specific days for consults and surgery. Anything major and you are transported to a bigger hospital in Hua Hin, bit over an hour away. I have had a few surgeries in the Prachuap hospital including orthopedic, could not fault the service and the price was probably 10% of what you pay in a private hospital. Only downside is that sometimes you have a 2 hour wait due to volume of people.

Gents in the event of the Chinese GP taking place on the 15th of March is there anywhere in PKK which shows the GP on TV ?

When I used to stay in Cha Am I had one place I could watch the race on. I do not want to have to leave PKK as I do enjoy a beer or two while watching.

I have booked in to a place for 60 days to escape this years burning season/smog in Chiang Mai.

Now down in PKK, luvverly quality of the air to breath.

Visited the Top Deck for my evening meal, good aussie steak, tasted better than most I have had in Thailand.

Ask the waitress how many Frangs fall down the stairs, nice smile and giggle.

Looking forward to 2 quite months down the blunt end and very nice small hotel I am staying in.

Your Place Apartment, nice new hotel less than one year old, spotlessly clean and nice folk.

They will do a deal for long stay, I am here for 60 nights or until Chiang Mai's air clears.

I notice a serious parade start in PKK town yesterday.

I asked one young girl about it and she says Yes and it goes on for a couple of weeks !

Anyone know just what is happening as traffic was terrible driving back from a decent meal on sea front.

Annual Red Cross fair, opening day yesterday. It does run for 10 days but most of it is between the pier and monkey mountain. Pretty lively and entertaining most nights.

Cheers, anything helps, I asked the girl on the desk at my hotel and she did not know, knew there was a parade but not why.
