TRAVEL DATE: 6-8 May 2016
DESTINATION: Phetchaburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan Provinces
ACCOMMODATION: Rest Detail Hotel in Hua Hin
A popular destination for Bangkokians during long weekends, is to head south to the beach resorts of either Cha-am or Hua Hin. On this trip I was based mainly in Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province. However, I also did a stopover on the way down and on the way back in Phetchaburi. Unlike Pattaya, its neighbour on the other side of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin is less sleazy and the bars closer earlier. It is more family orientated. It has become a good destination for people thinking about retiring. During the trip, I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow. Click to see the embedded tweets for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.
