Hua Hin

Thursday 19 January: My guidebook lists Hua Hin as one of the highlights of Thailand's Upper Gulf but really it's just an old fishing village virtually destroyed by the package tourism hotels strung along the beach, the taller ones casting afternoon shade over their sunbathing customers. At the heart of the old village is the terraced Hilton Hotel with nearby alleys of girly and sports bars with names like Liverpool FC, Man United and Celtic - each bar's livery matching the colour of their customers shirts.
The place's only saving graces are the good, but expensive, seafood and the pretty little wooden station viewed from a departing train.
