Being vegan in Hua Hin

by EFCliz

We are thinking of booking a trip to Bangkok and Hua Hin for January.
I think Hua Hin will be the right resort for us, partly because we don't
want to take another flight after we leave Bangkok and partly because
we like places that are fairly quiet but with a choice of restaurants etc.

So, if we do decide to go to Hua Hin, will it be easy to eat as a vegan there?

Hua Hin, will it be easy to eat as a vegan there?
------------------

If you want to eat in restaurants, impossible.
Restaurants and "vegan" don't go together in Thailand.
Restaurants here cook everything.

There is probably an Indian restaurant or two in Hua Hin.
It will offer some vegetarian, of course, but that's not the same as vegan.

However, if you buy food in markets, yes, certainly.
And shopping in local, native-style markets, is a gentle adventure.

In general, Hua Hin caters to tourists who are mainly older men from Northern Europe.
So restaurants in Hua Hin offer lots of wurst, schnitzel and you can easily find a good, stewed, pork knuckle.
Hua Hin is also famous for seafood -- cooked.

In Thai restaurants, salads are rare.
Thais hardly ever eat salad -- with one exception.
And a main ingredient of salad seasoning here is fish sauce.

The salad exception is green papaya salad.
In Thai this is called, "som-tahm", or "pah-pah-yah-pohk-pokk".
This is poor-people food here so it's rare to find it in restaurants.
You may notice vendors squatting on the street, pounding out papaya salad for local customers.
If you find yourself tempted, be aware that seasonings include fish sauce and dried shrimp.

But you can always buy fruits and veggies at the markets.
Lots of that and very fresh.
Hua Hin is in the middle of a fruit-growing area: bananas, pineapples, coconuts and other tropical fruits.
One of the "unseen" adventures available in Thailand is sampling fruits you've never tasted before, and never even seen before.
That can be a lot of fun.
Be careful, though, too much of certain fruits, can cause unhappy tummies.
You don't want to spend your days in Thailand sitting and staring at the bathroom wall.

But, now, a side comment with a respectful suggestion for you:
I've known a few vegans -- relatives.
Regardless of their ages, they preferred a life-style that can be described as tie-dyed, natural-fiber, yoga-every-morning.
If that's your preference, then you won't find many others of like-mind in Hua Hin.

There are two Thai vegetarian restaurants in Hua Hin ( as far as i know)
one is here the songteaws for Takiab leave from ( next door to a 7 -11)
The other is near the bus station down a side street
dont know either address
Thai vegetarian restaurants tend to be open limited hours and generally are not open in the evenings

Travel Tips for Hua Hin

The best part of waking up early

by syllybabe

The beach is quiet and deserted at 6am. Occasionally you'll see someone out for a morning jog otherwise, you'll be pretty much alone and you can enjoy quiet, contemplative moments as you sit on the rocks.

When I'm alone like this, all those high rise hotels in the distance seem like they're more than just a few miles away.

Transport around

by M.E.R.V

And as usual, the friendly tuk tuk driver is more than willing to take you anywhere in or around town for a price that is. Normally a ride from the centre of town to the hotels further away would cost about Bh100 without negotiation. And if you want cheap cheap you get on the motorcycle taxis which are found at almost every street corner and hug on to your sexy Thai loverboy.

Good food with lousy service

by Yammi123 about inAzia at Sheraton HH

Offers dishes for various asian cuisine (thai, japanese, indonesian, indian, etc) Fresh ingredients with good cooking. Only thing is the lousy service -- served all dishes together with the salad so everything was cold already. green mango salad, penang curry with prawn, tom yum gong, naan, no drinks. (1500B for 3) expensive but not the worst.

Hua Hin railway station

by georeiser

The Hua Hin railway station is one of oldest railway stations in Thailand. The waiting room is in Thai architecture style, and was built in order to welcome the King. The pavilion is very nice with an old steam locomotive on a side track. It's a favourite spot for taking pictures for both Thai and tourists.

Hua Hin

"Far From Worries......at Ao Takiap"

Hua Hin is a district in Prachuap Kiri Khun Province, 295 kilometers from Bangkok.Hua Hin white sand beach is 5 kilometers long and was a favorite seaside place for Thais.However now it is largely geared for foreign tourist.
It was discovered in the early 1920s by King Rama VII.The quiet fishing village was turned into the Royal resort in 1928 when King Rama VII built his Klai Kangwon Far From Worries Palace .Consequently Hua Hin became popular among Siam's nobility and upper-class who built their own beachfront summer homes.
After the construction of a railway line from Bangkok Hua Hin then became popular with the general Thai publc.
Hua Hin's attractions:

Hua Hin Railway Station
Klai Kangwon Palace
Khao Takiap
Khao Krailat
Hua Hin Arts and Crafts Centre
Sam Roi Yot National Park

"Khao Takiap"

When we arrived in Hua Hin we headed straight to Khao Takiap (less touristy) beach.It was during the rainy season, so hotel rates were very cheap.It did rain but not enough to spoil the trip.We had only planned to stay for a few days but because it was so relaxing we ended up staying a week.We spent lots of time laying around the pool ,swimming ,walking along the beach and eating great seafood.We also went to Hua Hin town for someing to do but wasn't too impressed with the beach and rip off prices for tourists
