  • Pala-U Waterfall Pool 2014

    Pala-U Waterfall 2014 Panorama Preview

    The main pool on level 3 of Pala-U waterfall.

    Pala-U Waterfall, located about 60 km west of Hua Hin, used to be the most popular day trip from Hua Hin.

    Then the self-installed coup government raised the entrance fee from an already outrageous 200 Baht to 300 Baht per adult foreigner (children pay half) in February 2015, as this rather modest waterfall is qualified as a "National Park".

    This means that a family of four will pay 900 Baht, the price of a lavish family dinner at a local seaside restaurant.

    Thais, Chinese and Asian-looking folk can get in for 50 Baht, as this policy is racist and the fee is based on appearance and skin color.

    It is therefore strongly advised to boycott Pala-U and all other "National Parks" of Thailand until these racist and greedy policies are changed.

    The trip to the waterfall leads through some real rain forest and is very scenic. The national park has some uniformed guides stationed around the falls that give advice and aid visitors. There are many levels of these falls. A trip to the very top takes a few hours. Gibbons and other jungle beasts can sometimes be seen at the falls.

  • Suan Son Beach 2014

    Suan Son Beach 2014 Panorama Preview

    Suan Son Beach, 10 km south of Hua Hin, is beach popular with Thais from the region and even from Bangkok that gets busy on weekends. The beach is part of a military camp and there is an entrance fee of 20 Baht per vehicle. All facilities are well managed and the restaurant is especially good and cheap with very attentive service. It appears Suan Son is part of the Thai military's image campaign. A trip to Suan Son is a must for visitors to Hua Hin to experience authentic Thai beach life free of the crass commercialism that is prevalent in Hua Hin and especially Cha-am.

    Cha-am: Under the Beach Umbrellas 2014

    Beach Umbrellas Panorama Preview

    While Western tanning is abhorrent and incomprehensible to most Thais, the typical beach experience in Hua Hin (the image was actually taken in Cha-am) involves sitting in beach chairs under umbrellas on small tables. Food and drinks will then be ordered. Be careful that in Hua Hin food and/or drinks have to be ordered, otherwise a chair can cost 100 Baht.

    In Cha-am there is a fee of 300 Baht per table (2014) and mandatory drinks, while food is ordered from other vendors. Never order food that is not on the menu unless you check and reconfirm prices in detail. This way there will be no surprises when the bill arrives.

    The coup government has recently cracked down on the beachside restaurants in Hua Hin for their blatant overcharging and sneaky pricing. They may sneak back after this populist stunt.

  • Cha-am Beach April 2014

    Cha-am Beach Panorama Preview

    Cha-am Beach in the evening, when the picnic tables are already packed. The feel of this beach is much more "Thai" than Hua Hin beach, with activities such as banana boats, jet skis and horse riding being the focus of beach activity.

  • Ko Samet Pier 2014 Panorama

    Ko Samet Pier 2014 Panorama Panorama Preview

    The new ferry pier of Ko Samet with the impressive statue of legendary sea giant seducress Pisuea Samut ('Butterfly of the Sea') from a story by Sunthorn Phu (1786-1855). And that tourist's holiday really must have cost him an arm and a leg.

  • Vong Deuan Resort Ko Samet 2014

    Vong Deuan Resort Ko Samet 2014 Panorama Preview

    Vong Deuan Resort sits on a nice bay on the east coast of Ko Samet. The resort is a bit controversial. You may check the review on Tripadvisor
