Hua Hin


A mother-daughter excursion ended up being a family trip! (blame the word beer)
Before hopping onto the plane, I briefed everyone: Just eat (i.e. drink beer) and relax (i.e. get daily massages).
In my case, get as much sun as humanly possible before flying back to China.
Currently nipping as I’m drafting this post. #bloodywinter

Our stay at Norndee was fabulous. Travelling around the world means we go through all sort of accommodations, from budget bunk beds to fancy-ass hotels, very often seeing it as a temporary stopover but not somewhere we would go back to. Therefore, it was alarming when I told mum: I want to come back!

 

Santorini Park @ Cha-Am is a great place for taking outfit shots or pictures in general. However, if you are expecting more than that (like us), you’d probably be disappointed. Aside from small theme parks, sparingly scattered restaurants and repetitive shops, there isn’t anything else that could make up for the entire afternoon. (p.s. admission fee required) We spent an hour here before heading to Premium Outlet Cha-Am for retail therapy.

 

Hua Hin Station

Getting roasted in the sun was not part of the plan (as you can tell from the picture it was already 5pm) but we had a great time waiting for the train from Bangkok to stop by. Choo-choo.

Coconut Ice Cream

Mum said this was the BEST coconut ice cream she had so far. Bold statement. However, dad and I don’t fancy coconut processed anything (except for fresh coconuts) yet we find this deliciousss. Worth the trip to Wat Huay Mongkol just for ice cream. [Concoction: Coconut ice cream, kidney beans, glutinous rice, corn and nuts]

Hua Hin is the perfect place to simmer down. People were friendlier and more laid back compared to what we experienced at larger cities in Thailand. Even though Venezia Hua Hin and FN outlet both let us down, I would still go back with Mr. Valentine perhaps just a tweak in itinerary. Couple of days in Hua Hin and Cha-Am then 2 days in Bangkok? We shall see :)
