Heading to the Night market in Hua Hin.

Ranong to Hua Hin, 430kms. Today's ride started out horrible. Got on the road before 7am, cold, dark and wet. Crossing over the mountains near Ranong was treacherous, roadworks for kilometres with trucks and buses speeding as usual. it rained till about 10am and then the wind came up. Jeebus. Why am I doing this....Just after the rain stopped i saw this sign, it says coffee in any language. Not expecting much I pulled in and was amazed when I was served a perfect cup of coffee....Brightened my whole day up.
A perfect cup of Coffee on a cold wet morning....Fantastic.

Hua Hin

 

Hua Hin, one of Thailand’s premier beach resort towns on the Gulf of Thailand, is less than 200 km south of Bangkok, making it one of the most popular weekend getaway destinations for city residents. A resort equally popular with young couples and families, tourists and Thais, Hua Hin is also the location of the King of Thailand’s summer palace, Klai Kang Won, “Far from Worries.” Hua Hin features a beautiful, powdery sand beach, numerous seaside seafood restaurants, a lively night market, numerous beach activities, and some great inland activities, not least of which is golfing at some of Thailand’s most renowned courses. Just down the coast at Takiab Bay visitors can take seaside horseback rides and visit a hilltop Buddhist temple with a spectacular view. Accommodation along the beach and on the streets leading away from the sea range from simple guesthouses to luxury resorts, and includes some of the finest spa-retreats in the world. Hua Hin is accessible via train, bus, or car and the seaside community of 60,000 residents is a fine example of warm and welcoming Thai hospitality.

The seaside town of Hua Hin, meaning “Stone Head”, was named after the rocks at the north end of the powdery sand beach. Hua Hin became Thailand's first beach resort after a train line was laid in the 1920’s to provide access from Bangkok and King Rama VII established his summer retreat in the area. With a 5 kilometer-long beach that features numerous activities, the laid back and hospitable town of Hua Hin continues to draw both tourists and Thais. In addition to beach fun and games, outstanding seafood restaurants, and a vibrant night market, Hua Hin is well known for having some of the finest golf courses in Thailand, as well as some of the most renowned resorts and destination spas in the world.

The road from Ranong to Hua Hin was one of the worst, and after some rain it was treacherous.
