Retirement Abroad: Ever Thought About Hua Hin,Thailand?

I have had a few inquiries on travel destinations in Thailand that I have already covered on the blog. So it got me thinking that as so many posts have been posted now,you might have missed them or had trouble finding what you were looking for.

I have decided that in between continuing with new posts on this blog that I would tidy up and organise some of the existing posts as well. So I have decided to put them in to categories. There have been some absolutely outstanding guest interviews and articles posted and a lot of information based posts. So I thought it was time for a clear up operation.

Today starts with the beach resort town of Hua Hin which is one of the 8 districts of the Prachuap Khiri Khan region.

Whenever I am in Thailand and no matter what else I do. I always make sure I get over to the beach resort of Hua Hin to spend a few quality days.

Hua Hin Posts

We start off with the interview I did last year with British Ex pat and superb Freelance Writer and Editor Mark Stephens. This was actually an updated version to the one I did with him in 2011. You can find the links to those through these more recent editions. Like the professional Mark is he did not just slightly alter what he said in the first interview, but merely started from scratch giving chapter and verse. He not only spoke about Hua Hin where he lives and has lived for 8 years, but gave some fantastic advice on living in Thailand in general.
