Hua Hin originated equally a beach finish for royalty to escape the cruel Thai heat, dorsum inwards the early on twentieth century. And amongst such unopen proximity to Bangkok, it remains pop today amongst locals too tourists alike. After (barely) surviving the overnight prepare from Chiang Mai to Bangkok, too the connecting prepare to Hua Hin, I was ready for unopen to beach time! We were greeted at the hotel amongst unopen to chilled washcloths too a cool, sweetness tea. Ahhh, things were looking improve already!
We had a breathtaking persuasion from our room.
The hotel grounds were lush too beautiful.
Swimmingming was the commencement companionship of business. To the correct of Eva was the H2O slide. The girls in all likelihood slid downward that slide 200 times during our stay!
We loved level walks on the beach. I tin sack nevertheless experience the warm, balmy air.
Good forenoon sunshine. What a means to commence the day!
We loved the puddle expanse at the hotel. Definitely an ideal beach vacation. We were surrounded yesteryear families too older people, the perfect demographic! We ever taste talking amongst older couples who are mostly a wealth of move data (and non of the overnight prepare variety!)
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 swim at 8:00 inwards the morning? Why not?!
We spent most of each forenoon walking along the beach looking for treasures.
This item treasure genuinely started to odor afterward it come upwardly abode amongst us!
We happened upon a jellyfish that had washed ashore, which the girls genuinely loved investigating. We touched the smooth, slimy surface, too also rolled it over to encounter underneath. Fascinating!
The persuasion from my beach chair. Yes, please!
Pony rides, anyone? Not today, Eva. Sorry.
This fair kid was non made for hours of Sun exposure!
Hua Hin has a population of virtually 51,000, too thus it is a large plenty metropolis to select things to walk to (like markets too cafe’s) but modest plenty to select a quaint feel.
Our daily walk to a nearby Thai massage place.
On, the 2nd solar daytime nosotros opted for the i sixty minutes ($6) pes massage, rather than the total body. It did non disappoint. Matt is hooked now, too!
I became addicted to these sesame too dearest (?) coated peanuts inwards the hotel lounge. We saw them many places inwards Thailand, certain wishing I had unopen to correct now…..
On Sunday, I was passing through the hotel foyer too noticed this sign for a modest church building service. I decided to cheque it out for a few minutes.
They generously offered me coffee, tea, too refreshments, immediately.
This footling church building was too thus filled amongst God’s love, I am nevertheless affected yesteryear my experience amongst them. So many members embraced me, (and I hateful embraced me inwards a bear hug, even amongst my sweaty beach clothes), too joyfully said “Jesus loves you.” I felt similar a long, lost sister, too I gauge inwards Christ, I am.
The praise too worship songs were genuinely shouted by many. They seemed too thus deeply moved too grateful to last there. The experience made me contemplate my ain worship too how frequently I “go through the motions”, spell distracted amongst other thoughts.
I was genuinely struck yesteryear the poverty inwards Thailand too the pathetic living weather condition for too thus many. The church building was inwards the procedure of edifice a children’s abode inwards Hua Hin, which volition house, feed too educate upwardly to 45 children inwards the area. If whatever of you lot experience too thus led, delight consider a donation to this wonderful project.

Outside….more of God’s abundant blessings.
We are commonly non typically beach vacationers, but how tin sack you lot crunch this view?!
And to a greater extent than lovely walks on the beach. Dusk is my favorite fourth dimension of the day.
Our breakfast spot.
We kept pushing dorsum our difference time, because nosotros simply couldn’t convey ourselves to leave. It was such a relaxing too rejuvenating fourth dimension too nosotros loved every minute here.
Goodbye, Hua Hin. We promise to furnish really soon.
Now dorsum to Bangkok for our flying home. (PS- We hired a driver this fourth dimension too it was a much nicer experience than the train, too solely took 3 hours instead of four. Just for the record.)
