    I was going to ask if you had been to Hua Hin on the other thread as was thinking of going there next time I leave my hotel room. Paulie went recently I think...

    Soi 94 Hua Hin
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    I always recommend the Hilton
    But pricey but great hotel and pool, perfect location and no problem at all for girls

    You are smack dab in the middle where restaurants and Binhbat maze of beer bars

    Thipurai City Hotel, The Friendly Mini Deluxe Hotel in Hua-Hin is nothing fancy but similar location to the hilton and has a pool and much cheaper.

    Fresh Inn another that has been recommended but have not stayed there.

    Visa Hotel on about Soi 84. Terrific hotel, especially for the price. Has a nice little pool, great staff and is super clean.
    Most comfortable bed I've slept in, in Asia. Hate to give this one up as it is sometimes hard to get in.



    Only negative is no restaurant and bar. Not a problem to me because I like to get away from the hotel I stay, for food and entertainment.

    1.5 hours I read , sounds preferable and cheaper than a four hours+ taxi

    That's is a great looking hotel.
    I'd still prefer to be in the main area where Hilton is

    The one negative of HH for me is once you get up to that main road it is so congested.

    As Ao would say....."it take away my relax"

    We seriously considered buying a house in HH because that is close to my MIL family and where Ao was born
    But it is so damn congested.

    But if you stay in that square area for a few days.....I think it's one of the most pleasant tourist spots in Thailand

    We'd buy a development up in the hills and if you stay "local" it is fine but once you get near that main road it is an absolute nightmare

    The Ferry sounds like the Go to me. Get on have a couple of Beers relax check out the views...got to be better than sitting in a Taxi Shitting yourself with the Mad drivers.
    On ferries, even in Sane places like Aust , I always make a mental note of were the Life boats, life jackets and exits are. same same Aircraft.

    Question is, does the ferry have a bar on it 55. I'm a weak pussy and prone to sea sickness, but drinking helps.
