Hua Hin - Part 1

{  I think I could live happily the rest of my life in Hua Hin. }

Sadly, I would be away from my family, so that wouldn't be the best, so I will have to dream about going back someday. 

We got off the train and walked to our hotel. Because we are white (white = foreigner = MONEY) we were stopped by an owner of a hotel, inviting us to stay at his hotel, it must be so much nicer than were we are going (yeah, and probably about 14 times as expensive). We politely got out of that one, and continued on our way. The hotel we were staying at wasn't far from the train station, and it was right down the street from some of the best food I have ever eaten in my life. 

Ty was in charge of picking out hotels for us (he clearly is the more organized one between us).
He definitely got a gold star for our hotel in Hua Hin!

Every hotel we stayed at had the bath towels folded like different animals


 I could have lived on that balcony
We settled in and cleaned up from the long train ride and set out into the city. We found somewhere quiet to eat, and then walked down to the beach.

The ocean was gorgeous. There's no other word for it. The water was warm, clear, and beautiful. We walked  down the beach (which ended up being VERY exhausting), at which point I may have become a little whiny and tired of walking. My very patient and loving husband walked slower, held my hand, busted out the GPS and got us back to the hotel.

Since we weren't able to go to the floating market in Bangkok like we'd wanted to, going to the Hua Hin night market was a must. We had basic directions of were to go, so we set out when it got dark around 6:30. We went back to the train station, and started walking next to a few Thai men. They asked where we were from and where we were going, and showed us the way to the market.

I'm not shy to say I COULDN'T WAIT to go to the market. I was excited to see what kind of shopping I could do. We had found some great things in Chinatown in Bangkok, but didn't buy anything because we wanted to see what all of our options were. We never made it back to Chinatown, so I was hoping to get some lovely things in Hua Hin.

Before coming to Thailand, we read everything we could. Several places suggested not to pack as many clothes as you thought you needed, because clothing was so cheap in Thailand compared to the US. At the night market, we found several nice shirts, some swimming shorts, and sandals for Ty. I bought fisherman's pants (mine are dark green, but like these), T-shirts, and music for myself. (At about $4 a shirt, how could you pass it up?)

We bought some fruit from a vendor, and walked around until our feet were tired. On our way back home, we passed a park were some locals were doing yoga. I begged Ty to take video of it, but he didn't want to be rude, so we didn't. I wanted my sister to listen to the music they were doing yoga to. Just a month before we came to Hua Hin, Ann had organized a yoga event in Denver. The event was amazing, and the music was so soothing. It was music by Snatam Kaur--very relaxing, very Zen.

So what music did the women in Hua Hin listen to?

Kenny G.

One Response so far.
