We spent three days in gorgeous Hua Hin. It did not take a long time to get there and it was a fascinating drive.
Yet again past Rice fields on flat terrain and then, about an hour out of the town there were hills. Huge mound shape hills. I realised again just how isolated I had let myself become...it has been so long since I had seen a hill!
There were also stunning buddhist monuments along the way.
I expected Hua Hin to be lovely as my guidebook states that King Bhumibol Adulyadej prefers life in his Palace there. I was not expecting it to be so clean and quiet. I have become accustomed to life in the suburbs of Bangkok. Hua Hin was a very welcome change.
We had every intention to visit to the gorgeous beaches, shop in the town centre and visit the night markets but The Banyan resort where we stayed was so perfect, with a large pool right outside our villa and a bar by the pool that delivered food and cocktails to our seat...we had no reason to get out of our swimmers. Other than the time we spent at the Lemongrass Restaurant eating our meals and a few hours on the golf course...we did nothing! It was wonderful.
We will have to visit the beach next time.
