Hi

I am 58 yo guy from the U.K. and have always seemed to have an affinity with Asia but due to marriages and LTR restrictions never actually managed to visit until 2010.

2010 until 2012 was spent visiting Pattaya which was fun but far to much of a party town than an old sod like me can cope with.

I have a friend who lives in Hua Hin so I decided to take a trip there last year and I fell in love with Hua Hin. Just the type of place that suits me and the lifestyle I am looking for.

Great beach, plenty of sightseeing, fishing, golf and the Bintabaht area when I need to spice things up a little. :roll:

I am doing lots of pre planning and Buddha willing my health keeps good I hope to retire to Hua Hin in 8 years time.

Just a quick word of thanks to all who post on here as I have gleaned an amazing ammount of information and help.

MM.

First visit was in 2006 with my wife. This year we go for the 5th time, and for the 3rd time with our son (almost 5 yrs old). He loves Thailand, the people and the food (not to spicy ;-) ).

First visit was 2 years ago as a tourist,which according to some posts on this Forum makes me among the lowest form of pond life. My son who works up in Udon Thani recommended Hua Hin. I took an instant liking to the place and returned last year for a month in a rental villa. In November our new house will be ready for us and we can't wait to move over. I have found the Forum a wonderful source of information and entertainment,even the " moaners" have got something worth reading if only for a laugh. Looking forward to meeting up with you in November.

First visit for me was 2012 for one night only as I was traveling further south to meet friends, even after 1 night I knew it was my favourite place in Thailand. ...I moved here 3 weeks ago :D
When nosy expats ask how can i live here without working, i reply, 'well, while you worked hard for 50 years, i worked smart for 5 years' :D

April 1997 busses from Nakhon Sawan to Phuket. The beach was like an oven.

Not yet. Been to many other part of Thailand but not Hua Hin. Didn't know it until a friend of mine mentioned
it as retirement destination.

Wonder if it's very different to other part of Thailand: PP Island, Krabi, Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket are the places we've been to.

March 2013. Golf and r and r. Perfect break in every way. Stayed in the hotel next to the Prime steak house... very conveniently located. As I'm always getting lost. About a hundred yards from Tina Bar

I first visited Hua Hin in 2007 when driving south to Surathani. My wife wanted to make the stop since it of course very popular with the Thais. I never would have expected that on my second trip, while strolling through Market Village, that we would be coaxed into visiting housing projects and us signing the papers on a purchase that very next day. So much for shopping to for t-shirts... I left a home owner. Always a funny story to tell.

Good decision on our part and we love living here. I wish I could spend more time.
