Eddy Rush Fatboys Production Had a chance to Made another trip to Bangkok and hua hin on 23th AUG - 27th AUG , Ticket booked end of last year with the price RM248 and waited for almost eight month to fly . This was my Second time visit Bangkok and first visit on Hua Hin , As I came for Bangkok - Pattaya at 2014 . We will stay for 5 day 4 night on this trip and It was my 7th time been in Thailand . The gang that going with me this time was the gang that we went Cambodia together last year . Take off from KLIA2 at 10.40 a.m and Reach Don Mueang International Airport At 11.30Pm ( Thailand local Time -1 hour ) mean malaysia time 12.30 p.m . it's take 2 hours flight . After Touch down to the ground , we need to walk a short runway to entered the building for luggage pick up and passport examination .
I get myself internet data from True Mobile company that located at the passpost check Exit , there was few more mobile company to be choose too . the lower is 200 baht for internet data only or 299 baht comes with internet data and calling usage .
Walk out from the airport main entrance Turn right go straight till end of the airport building then there was a bus stand beside Family mart . From there You can take Bus no. A2 , 29 , 59 and 510 or Take a cab for 160 Baht to Victory Monument , Stop or walk to Century Plaza .
From the ticket counter here , You can buy Van ticket to all outstation in Thailand . Get your Hua hin Van ticket here for 180Baht per person and they will charge another 180baht as one pax for the luggage at the first counter when you walk in . The drive takes about 2½ or 3 hours to reach Soi 57 Hua hin . We was unlucky because we get a van that uncomfortable with poor air conditioner and noisy driveshaft . We either sleep , reading some book or enjoy the scenery along the way .
Hub Hua Hin 57
5PM - CHECK IN Great choice and Highly Recommended for this hotel , 3 minute walk to public transportation drop from Bangkok from The property . Location is perfect because it's near city center , eateries , night market , and the beach . Staffs were very helpful and The room is clean and spacious . It cost RM110 for one room with Queen size bed .

Hua Hin Night Market
9PM - We settle down our last stop at Hua Hin Night Market , Shopping and food hunting is a must at this night market , Reasonable price For seafood too but we didn't manage to eat the big lobters since there was alot street food that need to be in our stomach . We was mouth watering when we saw they grill the lobster with the special sauce . OMG!!
Traveling whole day was tiring for us , We settle down our foot massage at rosemary massage that located just next few door from our hotel . good service and friendly staff .
9PM - Before visiting the Hua Hin railway station , the most important thing was to find a restaurant right in the town for breakfast . This Koti Restaurant was recommended by our local Tuk tuk driver . this is the oldest restaurant in Hua Hin .
Must try CP Le Pan Bananas when you are in bangkok , get them at every 7-11 store in thailand .
Hua Hin Railway Station
10PM - First stop at the nearest tourist attraction spot from the town , we went for take some memorable photo and the entrance fee is free but I'm unlucky not get to see the train passby .
The Venezia Hua Hin
11PM - Reach The Venezia , Feel disappointed with the place . The park is almost empty & most of the shops are closed . Weather was hot during the day . They are charging admission to enter an empty mall with some paintings on walls and few children's rides .
12.30PM - 20 Minute drive from The Venezia to Santorini Park , Entrance fee is 150 baht per person , A handful of good photography spots . we felt like we were in Santorini because the design and color look alike to the real santorini in Greece .
2PM - On the way back to our hotel , we leave our luggage at hotel and check out ealier to complete our place hopping on the morning .
2.25PM - Bought van ticket back to Bangkok at mini bus station , the ticket price is for 180Baht per person and they will charge another 180baht as one pax for the luggage , same package price as on the first day we bought . We get on for 2.45pm ride and expected to reach bangkok at 5.30pm . The van service will move from hua hin to bangkok for every 45 minute .
6PM - Reached Century Mall drop in Bangkok , once we walk down the street and pulling the luggage , we all fell damm hungry . From Century mall need 20 minute walk to reach Gateway Hotel , while walking we saw this lady selling local foods that prepared nicely and can be eat on the spot . what can I say is the food are damm awesome and really cheap .
6.30PM - After the 20 minute walk , we feel that the walk is kinda too far with puling the luggage going trought to those stranger roads that feel unsafe . But we safely reach at our hotel and doing check in , Gateway Hotel is one of the best picked in bangkok . Charges of Gateway hotel was cheap that cost RM120 per night only and really convenient for us to shop and eat around Platunam area . Few walk step to Platunam Night market . walking distance to all the famous mall in bangkok : Platinum , Central World , Big C , Siam Paragon , Siam Center and MBK .
Walking Araound Night market In Platinum mall , Central World and Big C
8PM - Since everyone kinda tired , we walk to nearest night market , Pratunam night market , thought of have a look at Platinum mall but seem closing because it was 9PM already and there have a row of night market so we enjoy walking till end of the vendor .
11PM - It was heavy rain at Bangkok on the night when wanted to back hotel and unavailable to walk back from BIG C , so we hired Tuk Tuk that stand at one of the corner in BIG C , All the Tuk Tuk driver like an F1 driver that drove so dangerously .
Sabx2 Wanton Mee , Phetchaburi 19

While waitting my friend coming for dinner gathering , there was a muay thai tranning ground Beside Mangkron Seafood . The Kids was started to learn when they are young , This kids gonna be a great fighter in the future since I'm a fan of Buakaw Banchamek .
7PM - We get a taxi ride from our hotel to Mangkron Seafood that is located at Din Daeng area , Their bbq seafood buffet only costs 399 baht(RM48) per person for 90 minutes dining time .

We was to cross the Chao Phraya river to visit Wat Arun from Tha Tien pier to Khun Mae Pueak pier , there are ferries which cost 3 baht , available at several boat landings .
4PM - At the moment they're renovating the buildings and it's scaffolded over so it's not worth going there as the scaffolding ruin the beauty of it .
Took the boat ride back to Tha Tien tier and take another boat for river cruise straight to Asiatique tier and have the night there , It was a great experience .
Asiatique The Riverfront
7PM - We reach Asiatique on the evening . There were a number of DIY shops and those with the usual staples and goods . Other than the Ferris wheel and the theatre . There are a huge variety of food options which let us enjoy the evening breeze . However , we decided that dinner to have it here .
Vitamilk is very thirst quenching beverage , with a creamy sweet taste. It has been Thailand's favorite soymilk for almost 50 years . Nice creamy Thai Tea .
