  • Good restaurant far away from tourist...

    The restaurant is on very quiet street and it closes at 7:00PM, so you need to be early and when sun is shining, it's a little bit challenging, at least to my kind of eskomo. All tables are in shed and it seems to be a home restaurant. Nice but cold white blue decoration. No white linen needed but the coated fabric on the table are not...

  • Pestering men outside tailors shops.

    Hua-Hin seems to have a tailors shop every 10 yards from another tailors shop. "Do you want to buy a suit sir" is heard around town all the time. One came up to me with "you are looking very well today " I found this a little hard to believe as I was wearing a t-shirt that looked like it had been kicked around the floor and only had about 4 hours...

  • Indian tailors

    I have never seen so many tailor shops in my life. The guys hang around outside then pounce as soon as you get close enough. Their trick is to shake your hand while passing their business card at the same time but not letting go of your hand all the time trying to sell their wares. This was the only down fall they just got on my nerves after a...
