Staying in Hua Hin

Our favorite restaurant U-Saw-Mass across the street from the condos:

We have had three holidays in Hua Hin and love the place. Aside from the fun things to do, we discovered wonderful places to stay. Our favorite is in John and Kay’s, Busaba Pool Villas. They have a couple of 2-bedroom condos in a unit called SeaCraze and we have stayed in both. This is located near to restaurants and the beach and is a fun, quieter side of Hua Hin (and the best beaches). The building has a HUGE pool and nice gym.

Hua Hin Vineyard

We hired a car (cheap in Thailand and pretty easy to drive here – at least if you are used to driving in Dubai!) and one day headed out of town to the West, into the hills to the local winery.

Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park

Had a great visit to a national park about one hour south of Hua Hin.

The drive down is easy with good highway and roads but we appreciated our GPS. The park costs 200 Baht per person and you are asked to show the tickets at a few stops. We first took a canal long-boat ride which was through a quiet area of mangroves. Pretty and saw monkeys, lots of birds, crabs and mudskippers.

Hua Hin

We have visited Hua Hin a couple of times now and really enjoy it. This is the summer palace of the King and Queen of Thailand about 3.5 hours south east of Bangkok. It’s a good and easy road to get there and usually more Thai people than foreigners. It has great night markets, beaches, temples, elephant sanctuaries, a winery, and enough of a party vide at night to keep the young’uns happy (big young’uns). We like the Ko Takiab side past Monkey Mountain.

Bali Arts and Architecture

We went to a neat evening Kecak dance show which consists of lots of chanting by many men. They provide all the music for this by group grunting and chants. Sounds off-putting but it’s very compelling. Then a story is acted out with dance and show ends with one of the characters walking and then sitting on a large fire and jumping around on it. He was wearing a grass skirt at the time so not sure how all that worked.
