My first time in Hua Hin was yesterday! Like it so far. Been in Koh Samoui about 12 years back.

Hi there, I am a newbie in this forum.

Reading through the posts and comments, I think Hua hin is really a nice place..:) I'm hoping that I can visit the places you have traveled.

It's really nice to read your posts here. I think I will learn a lot of new things.

First Post and my first time in Hua Hin will be 12th Sept. Been coming to Thailand about twice a year for the last 8 years but have usually just stayed in Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and Pattaya as the thought of a 3 hour bus ride from Swampy never fills me with joy.
As we are planning to retire to Thailand in the future we are thinking of purchasing some property and getting set up years ahead of retirement time rather than wait until the last moment so we thought we had better check out all the options rather than just toss a coin between Pattaya and Phuket.

Read through quite a bit of the info on here today and I'm really looking forward getting a few Changs and playing some pool next week!!

^ I think you'll find Hua Hin quieter and more sane than Pattaya or Phuket. However, you've been visiting for 8 years so you know what you like. Pattaya and Phuket will give you convenience to many things and services not found elsewhere, but life can get complicated and stressful at times.

There are some beautiful rural coastal locations south of Hua Hin, but the price there is that you give up many conveniences and need to travel if you're a mall shopper or like the bustle of a large town.

In any event, good luck and if questions am sure they'll be answered on here. Check out the section "South of Hua Hin" to learn more about what I mentioned above. Pete :cheers:

Cheers Pete,
thanks for the welcome. We've lived in Dubai for the past 7 years so it's all too tempting to just jump on a plane and head over to LOS, in fact we just came back from a two week holiday there on the 25th August and decided to head back again asap.
I've a pretty simple requirements, something either near the sea or with a good pool, cold beer, level(ish) pool table, tv+internet and some golf courses so Hua Hin looks fairly promising. Plus the OH, who's Chinese, likes the look of it so Happy Wife Happy Life !!

^ Yes indeed, we have people on here who live the double life between the ME and Thailand. Good folks based upon their postings and perhaps they'll see this thread and offer advice about why they chose Hua Hin..

Read some other threads though as buying a single family home on the ground is not easy if the wife is not Thai.

You're the second forum member in two days who made known he has a Chinese wife. There's another long term member as well who already has vacation property in Hua Hin. I'm sure there are many others. It would be interesting to learn how the ladies are adapting and what they think of life here? A new thread is in order perhaps if some husband wants to start one. Pete :cheers:

Just a couple of weeks ago and it rained every day, sweated my butt off, walked a gizillion miles and loved every second of it. Just booked a return to Thailand for January. See you all then.

My first visit to Hua Hin was back in 2009. I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and will always return!

first time was may 2014, wasted the first day as i reached bkk airport at around 9pm, and reached hua hin at 12am. Didn't get to explore much though. Nightlife there was awesome. Will be visiting hua hin again next year jan, hoping to explore more places!
