Hua Hin.... Well a very different town to that of Bangkok, popularised when the Thai royalty needed somewhere to cool off from the heat if the capital, it now attracts a wholly interesting sort of European tourist (seemingly german, Russian and Swiss in the main) including an awful lot of men who appear to have found their Thai prize....
