GPS Carlos Melia at Hua Hin in Thailand   |  Hua Hin, Thailand  |  Yesterday I arrived to Hua Hin in the southern region of Thailand, right on the Gulf of Thailand. I transferred from Bangkok, drive that took me over two hours to get here. This area is very well known for being the resort retreat of the Thai Royalty, and most locals like to compare it to the Hamptons of Thailand. The beach is not what most tourist would expect coming to Thailand, that you will get in Phuket, Krabi and other regions over the Andaman Sea or even in Koh Samui, which is further south bathed by the same gulf. The main reason that brought me to Hua Hin, was to try the exclusive Chiva-Som Resort which specializes into Health, Wellness and Fitness, catering to international celebrities and the rich and famous. Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula and part of the Prachuap Khiri Khan province. I am exploring the area, so expect to read more about this destination. CM
