2D1N in Hua Hin from Suvarnabhumi Airport: Day One

I'm starting off my 201th post with my first day to Thailand! Woo hoo! May all of us travel the world more this year! My basic plan for Day One was to fly to Bangkok then get our personal driver to drive us to Hua Hin. We checked into the hotel and then basically spent the rest of the afternoon/evening eating dinner, having road snacks, getting a food massage and buying trinkets. Everything was within 5-minutes walking distance!

(Also, yes, I have an Excel sheet for the Bangkok itinerary as usual. I'll upload it in a few days so stay tuned)

Fresh and bright-eyed on the way to the airport 

It's weird, we took MAS to Thailand but somehow ended up on the crummy side of the KLIA airport with nothing to eat for breakfast except Old Town (=____=) The noodles was alright, anyways! 

Wewo is saving up his calories for Thailand. AHAHAHAHAHHA 

Any where I go will be fun, as long as I get to go with him. 

HIS FIRST BEER! Did I mention that my husband was on a 5-day drinking mission? 

Some weird stuff we bought at 7-11 before taking a 3-hour ride to Hua Hin from Suvarnabhumi airport. 

Incidentally, they pronounce Suvarnabhumi without the "i". That's weird, right? 

Dinner at Lung Ja Seafood, which is 5 minutes walking distance away from the hotel! Just ask the nice hotel receptionist how to get to the night market and she'll draw out a map for you. 

Yup, beer. 

If you order the lobster, you'll get a fried rice FREE and it comes with juicy fresh crab meat. Depending on your haggling skills, I suspect that you can even get the uncle to throw in a plate of vegetables for free. 

We ended up ordering a plate of mango salad (som tam) later on, which cost like RM5. 

Look at it! Lobster is first boiled and then charcoal grilled so it's sweet and juicy on the inside with a charcoal after taste. We actually had trouble finishing the lobster so this is definitely enough for 2 pax. 

I'll come back for you again, Mr. Lobster!

Look at how big the lobster meat is!

The receipt for our meal, which is basically about RM222. 

Foot and body massage after touring the night market! 

Hanging out at Thai Thai massage, highly rated on Trip Advisor. It's equipped with Wi-Fi!

Pam recommends taxi: 
We actually used Mr. Roong taxi, who's really famous on the Internet but he turned out to be so Roong for us. I'll tell you why tomorrow and will recommend you a better driver! 

Pam recommends massage centre: 
Thai Thai Massage centre (go before 830pm because it's really popular with the tourists)
