Thailand Hua Hin Trip - Family Vacation

It’s home sweet home today after an 8D7N free and easy Christmas vacation trip in Thailand Hua Hin and Bangkok. It is a family trip and we certainly make lots of noise since we have more than 20 of us, comprising of my mum, me and my siblings' families, as well as some friends. While the bright and sunny weather definitely lifted our moods during the trip, it sometimes can be scorching hot too! Despite the heat, overall it was a fabulous trip. Most importantly, my mum is elated to see all her children and grand children spending quality time together in our very first big family trip together.  

Day 1


My little gal first time taking aeroplane.


Our resort @Dhevan Nara - A bit old, location is far, but very cheap ($120/night incl. breakfast). And yes, we booked late and this is during the festive period. 


My sis has a much nicer villa with swimming pool. More pricey, of course! 


Our first night dinner @Koti restaurant at Hua Hin Night Market. Good and cheap food, but fully packed.



Hua Hin Night Market 

Day 2


Santorini Park in "Greece"


Our children playing.



Camel Republic - just like a mini Zoo.



 Swiss Sheep Farm - Awesome!


PlearnWan Shopping Area


Lobster, Yummy!


Eat finish, shop! 

Day 3


Safari Adventure Park - Nice scenery, tiger, elephant, crocodile, snake shows, ATV etc.


Tiger Show


"Liger" (Lion breed Tiger)


The wise owl


Elephant show


Can you shoot 3 pointer-basketball better than an elephant? 



Market Village - coffee, shop, arcade, foot massage, dinner....

Day 4



Vana Nava Water Jungle - Superbly fun, I absolutely love it!

Day 5


Vineyard - stunning scenery


Sam Pan Nam Floating Market


After going to gym, I played table tennis with staffs in my resort. 

Day 6



Fantastic view from Hilton Hotel Hua Hin


Early dinner at "highly rated" Sawasdee restaurant - Just me and wife tonight... Yes!


Next up, coffee and ice cream along the beach. Shiok!


Shopping and then foot massage at Naresdamri. 

Last night at Hua Hin before we proceed to Bangkok the next morning. 

Day 7


One night in Bangkok

Day 8


My gal bidding farewell to Thailand. 


I will end with photos of all my favourite coffee shots during the trip! 

Happy New Year 2016!

  1. Rolf,

    Glad to see you enjoying yourself with family :)

    Your little girl may forget the presents you gave her when she grows up, but I'm sure she will remember the first time she flew with all her closest family members!

    To health and family!

    P.S. You're a coffee junkie like me too?

    1. Hi Jared,

      Thank you and HNY to you. If my gal forget, I will ask her to visit this article. haha. The most happy thing in this trip is being able to see my mother so happy, eat well, walk well (she normally can't) and sleep well.

      Yes, I love coffee! No sugar, no milk!

      All the best of health and family love to you as well in 2016.

  2. Hi Rolf

    20 pax is a lot of people to navigate there!!!

    If you had gone earlier, we might just be in the same town ;)

  3. Look to be a nice place. I'll plan to visit there sometime in the future. Is Black Mountain water theme park near Hua Hin too?

    1. Hi David,

      HNY 2016 to you. I think it is quite a nice place. The downside is the 3h ride from Bangkok and heat can be unbearable at times!

      Yes, I think the black mountain water theme park is there, but the Vana Nava Water Jungle theme park is quite good too!
