Thailand: Hua Hin, Prachuap - A Royal Gateway

Thailand: Hua Hin, Prachuap - A Royal Gateway

Hua Hin can be called, literally, a "royal getaway"; it is Thailand's oldest beach resort and a seaside sanctuary; which was discovered by Thai royalty and made accessible to everyone by National railway. Host Sian Richards arrives at the elegant European style station, which was built, along with the lovely, colonial railway hotel, to greet the king and his royal entourage in 1923. The hotel's royal waiting room is like a museum, filled with fine antiques from around the world; its grounds include an impressive topiary and you also get a great view of Klai Kangwon Palace from here. With a bounty of fresh seafood Chef Khankad Gai will prepare Thai soup, called Tom Yom Gung, and a stir-fried, mixed seafood sizzler for this program's meals. Thailand's first public golf course was built here and Sian's golf instructor, Nath, is happy to give her a lesson; also Kasaya guides her around the luxurious Sentara Spa. In Petchaburi, not far outside Hua Hin, she visits Khao Lunag, the area's largest and most important cave, which houses over 100 Buddha statues. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
