Photo Diary: Hua Hin, Thailand

Monday, December 22, 2014


Just a few days later after we had dinner at the Yok Yor Restaurant in Bangkok we drove to Hua Hin to visit our other relatives and friends there.

Hua Hin has changed tremendously over the last few years. My eyes fell out when were on the way to my great aunt. Her beautiful old house is surrounded by bars, "spas", and hotels. As a woman you feel very uncomfortable walking through alleys day and night and guys starring at you from the bar. Majority of these people were from other countries that I won't mention. You will find out sooner or later when you visit this town or maybe you already know that from your last trip there. All i can say is that something has to change, because it's disgusting and it just makes me kind of sick to see what happened to beautiful Hua Hin!


But now the bad things aside, because I want to show you the beautiful side of Hua Hin.
After a three-hour ride from Bangkok we were very welcomed by our lovely great aunt with my most favorite meal chicken satay with peanut sauce and sliced mangoes & coconut milk served with sticky rice.

When we were finished we got some dessert made by relatives who live in this town too: Water chestnut and taro pudding topped with sweet coconut cream. So gooood - I totally love them!
To get this delicious dessert you can stop by at their shop Hanbanchaphong (ร้านเบญจพงศ์).

In the evening we went to the most popular night markets out there. They have lots of stalls that sell anything from yummy fresh cooked food to fashion items and souvenirs. There are just so many things to find and buy. I recommend coming early so you wont miss anything out :)

If you missed the night market, throughout the day, there are still some stalls along the beach that sell colorful shells, handcrafted things and souvenirs as well.

Here is a picture of the beach with a view to the Chopsticks Hill (Khao Takiab). During our stay in Hua Hin I had the chance to visit this hill and another one not far away from this one. They both have temples on it which I will post about in the next photo diary post.

And lastly a few more pictures from the beach and the hotel we stayed in:

You can catch some small crabs there :). I released them again after looking at them.
