Our stay in Chiang Mai saw us experiencing a range of activities and sights, from bathing with elephants, staying in a treehouse, standing on the highest peak in Thailand, learning Muay Thai and even having a Police Officer trying to extort money from us!! (More on this later)….
After having two short stays in Surat Thani and Koh Samui we were looking forward to settling into a longer stay in Hua Hin for four weeks.
After a pretty relaxed week on Koh Samui, it was time to head back to mainland Thailand and another longer stay in one place. This time we were travelling to the town of Hua Hin (the original ‘seaside resort town’ of Thailand), about 200km (by road) south of Bangkok and right on the coast with a 5-6 km stretch of beach.
After being in the concrete jungle of KL we all found being in Penang very refreshing to be surrounded by nature, whether it be the ocean in front of us or the forrest and hills behind us.
When Logan’s sister and brother-in-law visited KL earlier this year, one of the main things we heard about was the amazing Sunday Lunch (with free flow Champagne, wine and beer) at The Ritz-Carlton. Once we had arrived in KL and found that The Ritz was on the same street as our apartment, just 650m up the road, and that my birthday fell on a Sunday this year, it just seemed too good an opportunity to pass up.
