It was around '93.
My ex-husband (current at the time) booked a last-minute deal, and told me we were going to Morocco.
I always like to find out about a place before I visit, but because of his idea of fun I had no idea where Hua Hin was. It was incredibly cheap - something like 299 pounds including flights for 10 nights B&B at the Royal Garden Village (same as Lomu). I was so confused, because I'd geared myself for Morocco, I don't think I appreciated it as much as I should have.
It was only 15 years ago, but boy has it changed! My next visit was 5 years later with the current Mr.VS. - we stayed in the Tippawan Hotel down the little soi almost opposite Tescos. Not such a grand hotel, but with a far superior partner.
