Help!!!

Hi all

We are in khao Lak at the moment and the wife's hair straighteners have packed in! Where can we buy some before she starts crying!

Many thanks

Maybe the out of town Tesco or you could let her be pampered in one of the beauty salons. Actually never noticed hairdressers in Khao Lak, but I`m sure there must be some.

Stop crying Mrs Brian1966, your on holiday :-)

Not likely to get them in the hairdressers. There is a great electrical shop up the highway from Bang Niang next door to the 711 which is on the right at the entrance to the Bus Station/market. If they don't have them they will tell you where you can.

You can get them at Tesco but have the maintanace guy at the hotel have a look at them it might be just the wires have come loose in the plug.

Nearest Tesco with Electrical Department is on Phuket about 90 minutes away. The electric shop in Khuk Khak is 10 minutes.

Thanks everyone panic over! One of the guys who works at the hotel unbelievably drove us 30km to an outdoor market which had an electrical shop behind it. There were hundreds and hundreds of locals around with us the only westerners! The looks on their faces ha ha anyway this guy waited for us then took us round their sister hotel the Bangsak village and then stopped so we could get some food from a local street market! What wonderful people here!

"What wonderful people here!"

Needs to be repeated. Have not experienced the dedication that Brain had. But have had lots of little extra bits of "willingness to help" from most of southern Thailand that sometimes leaves me a little bit embarrassed.
