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.
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.
