Hua Hin, Thailand [Part 2]

Sunday, May 05, 2019

So here is the part 2 of the care-free days in Hua Hin.


Some places that I've been:
[Part 1]
Alpaca Hill, Suan Phung, Ratchaburi
Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Samut Songkhram
Santorini Park, Cha-Am
Mercado de Plearnwan (Vintage Village)
Surat Thani
- Khao Sok National Park, the Rachapahda Dam
- SiMana Farmstay for Oyster cultivation (You can really skip this unless you get a good tour guide)


[Air Asia had started its new route to Hua Hin last year around mid of 2018, there's an option for tourists to go by direct flight instead of landing at Bangkok and taking land transportation to reach Hua Hin.]



Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, Samut Songkhram



The one and only market that I've stopped by.


 This is considered a wider path with more space to move... and occasionally there is a traffic jam.
Noticed there are traditional sampan and also modern sampan with the use of engine.
Surprisingly the elderly still follows the traditional way while younger one uses engine type.

Coconut ice cream is the best!
Also I have the best uncle so he tried his best to get all the food that we would like to try... I don't even have to request it. #familytimeisthebest

Thai Noodle

They said this is a must try... and I immediately agreed to it after the first bite.

My favourite!

Rice noodle soup
I didn't know this is one of the must-try food until my uncle suggested it.
It is really like some chee cheong fun (firmer one) in a bowl of tasty soup topped with some other foods. If I'm visiting Thailand again, this must be something in the to-eat list.







Santorini Park, Cha-Am

Santorini Park is an Amusement Park with attractive entrance fee of just 150 THB per person, offering exciting and interesting activities (2 games per person, you could pay an additional fee for more activities). The white buildings and blue rooftops make this place looks just like the real Santorini in Greece.
Santorini Park entrance fee & activities
 I didn’t manage to try out other rides because of the hot weather and I'm with the wrong (unsuitable) outfit... I prefer to stroll around.


Ferris Wheel at Santorini Park


It will be an ideal place for a good walk

Thanks mom. #myphotographer 💓


Mercado de Plearnwan (Vintage Village)

Hmm. How should I describe this place?
A dreamy spot for a person like me. Best to visit in the evening - sunset time, when the night approaches, you would want to stay for few more hours just to chill and relax, surrounded by all the colourful lighting and unique designs. There are varieties of food & snacks, souvenirs, you can do shopping here. Guess how much is the entrance fee?
ZERO!

Always feeling young with this group of cool kids.



The scenery along the journey...














Khao Sok National Park, the Rachapahda Dam

This is for the nature lover and I guess we have a lot more to explore at this place. Only a lunch time spent here with this good view.

SiMana Farmstay for Oyster cultivation
(You can really skip this unless you get a good tour guide)
But we got to try some good food and oysters.

Miang kham, dried shrimp and oyster and other ingredients wrapped in leaves

Oyster cultivation site

I asked the Google about oyster farming...
The oysters are grown on ropes strung from the wooden poles, which results in grit and barnacle-free meat.
And how long does it take to grow an oyster?
Oysters typically grow up to an inch per year. This is dependent on salinity and the quality of the water column. In higher salinity areas, oyster will grow faster than in lower salinity areas.





What I feel amazing about Thailand is...
It is cleaner than before.
"R&R" are all well-maintained.
This is one of the huge one that I've been to...






This is another "R&R" comes along with a green and blue view.






And I need to share this with Jane because this is her favourite food
Thailand is famous for its crepe!







The best thing about this journey is the time spent with those people I love in life.


I already looking forward to the next one.
