    Hua Hin - still a dump

    I was in Hua Hin recently and, while I admit it was/is low season, this place needs some development and some amphur enforcement. While the Centara Hotel next to the public beach is a beautiful old building, they can't even muster up a premium international draft beer (eg only Singh available). Walking down the horseshit covered stretch of sand to the Hilton which, like the Centara, is on about its third name and hotel chain, and it's a similar story. Only canned beer available - but at least it's Heneiken. All the same gritty little bars are there, many of them on their fourth or fifth owners in the last ten years. Place is tired and boring, sand and water always brown. Do something - for starters get the fcukjng horses off the beach
    My mind is not for rent to any God or Government, There's no hope for your discontent - the changes are permanent!

    Surely its got to be better than Pattaya

    This is the beach where I stayed recently, I wasnt game to take my shoes off for fear of broken glass and syringes and the water, well I'm sure there was shit in it.
    But, the Russians seemed to like swimming there.

    Thank fk I had a private pool



    And really, who gives a fk if the beer is in cans and or not draft.
    Was it cold and relatively cheap?

    Looking at the picture above I thought it was the Thais throwing their shit in the sea and on the ground which ends up in the sea and back on the beach that was a problem.
    That and being greedy but not smart about it by making 5000 of the same thing everywhere in an attempt to fleece the falang and then getting all upset when falang doesnt want yet another massage , a ride in your speedboat or in your fken tuk tuk.

    Ah but a picture proves it's a rubbish dump, no denying that sort of evidence.

    Hua hin is parallel to Pattaya in the toilet bowl shaped part of the gulf of Thailand.
    No matter how much horse shut you keep out of there it's never gonna be clear.
    Looking forward to tax exile's contribution

    At least there´s no Russkies in HH, yet...

    Hua Hin is a tropical paradise compared to where the locals have fun, Bang Saen Beach!

    Google this:

    It sounds like Clacton On Sea. Was it full of un-married mums and junkies?

    The lumpen proles that restrict their experience of hua hin to the small area between the hilton and the centara get exactly what they deserve, a shitty stretch of beach, the attentions of greedy peddlers, run down bars with past their prime prostitutes and a dismal area[at]of lanes and streets peddling overpriced tat and overpriced food to gormless tourists and thais with more money than sense.


    Hua hin is much more than that, you need to get away from the centre.

    ^ these are the exact same words people say about Pattaya (and Phuket). Maybe they are true?

    Sometimes I used to pop to Canvey Island for the day. I can honestly say that, average as CI was (is?), Hua Hin offeres little if any more... Okay, you have a bit more sun, a few darker girls (maybe not these days...), some exotic beers, Chang, Singha, some actual sandish stuff rather than rocks, other people, Starbucks, a sea you won't freeze your nuts off in, some decent Thai restaurants (on English style piers I noticed...), a Hilton, some bars (pretty awful ones), and maybe feels like a holiday place rather than a council estate by the sea, but apart from that, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    &, where are the fish and chips?

    I can honestly say that I'd rather sit in Canvey Island with some fish and chips than Hua Hin. Maybe that's a reflection of me being here too long...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Sandflies during rainy season can be a problem in HH:

    This is what happened to us in HH in July.

    I agree Tax that driving south of the centre things look a bit better, with the intercon and amari. Still if the centre "prestigious and aristocratic" Hua Hin can't raise it's game other than adding a Subway and a Burger King over the last decade then there are serious issues there

    Uncalled for. My littl'un used to eat for Thailand, and whilst he shot up heightwise, buildwise he would have looked just like that.

    ^ My boy looked unhealthily skinny when we lived in Thailand even though he ate well. Perhaps it's the heat or just a phase kids go through at certain ages between growth spurts. No biggy.
