Road tripping Hua Hin

Heheh… it has been some months since we came back from our little road trip around Hua Hin. Was it fun? Of course. Would we recommend it? Definitely!

Today we finally finished the translation of our offline journalog to the blog for sharing with you. There was A LOT of material and trust us that this is surely just an abridged version.

First it is important to note that we picked up a rental car from Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok. From there, it was supposedly a 3-hour drive (approximately 220km). But you see we did not just jumped in the car and made the drive. For we determined to stay the night near the airport and popped over to nearby Rod Fai market. Have not heard of it? Oh then you need to find your way there too!

And did you think Hua Hin was just about the sea and beach? Oh no! Well, not the city itself anyway. In any case we did not get into the water on this occasion. Instead, we stayed dry on land.

So how did we fare? Here’s the checklist we had:

  • Vineyards. Yep we did visit one. And it was such a surprise to taste good vintage there! Even on a rainy day it was so busy… but the highlight was – drumroll – the cheesecake. Heheh… ok the wine’s good too.
  • Royal retreats (definitely saw the railway station), if only without the train coming in. This option of getting to Hua Hin (5 hours from Bangkok) is definitely not in our consideration. And we did sneak into a palace too.
  • Night markets. Guess we’re becoming “atas” (malay word for “upstairs”, but in Singlish it means being ‘high class’). Couldn’t fancy eating at them… all three that we visited and spent quite a bit of time walking through but not a bite.

Are you ready for our journalog? Let’s go, by reading on here. Have you been to Hua Hin?

    1. Oh yeah, we sort of took a look and realize that the night markets weren’t up to scratch… heheh… that’s just our 2 cents.
      The wines were pretty good, as the vineyard was in the highlands where it was cooler. Plus the cheese was something not to miss out on when wine tasting!
