The 5km beach of Hua Hin is a great place to relax and our resort was very nice. We stayed at the Centara Grand Beach Resort and the property was very tranquil and relaxing.
When they have horses on the beach you go for a ride!
When we were not soaking up the sun at night we did a little exploring. Hua Hin has several markets at night which are fun to shop around. The first is the Cicada Market. Unlike other markets we have visited in AP Cicada is a source of the arts with many handmade decorative items, paintings and the the best street food atmospheres/eating experiences in Thailand. The Market has a wonderful ambiance as it is very well planned out with an amphitheater, venue for art exhibitions, and a food zone called Cicada Cuisine. We were able to chose from a variety of Thai and international dished from grilled seafood, satay, BBQ and so much more.
Here is a painting we bought at the Market...
The other Market we visited was called the Night Bazaar. As opposed to the Cicada Market that is only open on the weekends the Night Bazaar is open daily, known by the locals as the Chat Chi Market. This one is located in the heart of the town and resembled many other markets you will find in Thailand.
This was my second trip to Hua Hin, however the first with the family. This area boast some of the top courses in Thailand and AP. Thus, I enjoyed some golf in the early morning when the family was eating breakfast. Looking forward to my next golf trip with some friends at the end of November.
This was a great break for us all as we have done many exploring vacations lately so it was nice to lay in the sun and swim. Soon enough the winter of Michigan will be welcoming us home...
