transport + holidays

Hello

We are travelling to Hua Hin in december.

Our hotel is not in the centre, so we are thinking about it to rent a motorcycle. Just to come and go to the centre. Can we trust this in Hua Hin? And does somebody knows a good adress to rent?

We will also celabrating chrismas an new year over there.

How is that? Can you compare it with Europe?

Thanks!

Hi. All I will say on the subject of hiring a motorbike is do not unless you really are a veryexperienced rider in your own country and even then still think twice, but if you must then there are places all around town hiring them out.

As for spending Xmas and the New Year here and comparing it with Europe, there is little comparison.

Firstly, the weather will be at its absolute best meaning blue skies and sunshine with heat but not overbearingly so, so you can eat dinner etc on the beach or by a pool or in the open air somewhere.

Secondly, Thailand is a Buddhist country so Xmas is put on purely for the tourists by local business's and the Tessabahn (local council for your interest) and they generally do a very good job of it and it won't cost you any money to enjoy it.

What you do will depend to a degree on where you are staying as all of the better hotels will put on some form of Xmas meal (often at very high prices) but a lot of smaller eateries will do the same but the better ones soon get booked up by us expats as early booking is advised.

You will also notice that Xmas Day is just a normal working day for the local population, banks and shops and offices all working, kids are at school, its only tourists and expats enjoying the day for what it is and what you personally get out of it will depend on how much you want to put into it and where you go.

We, where we live often have a street party and all the residents get together, chip in with the costs and preparations etc and even have a Santa who really suffers in the heat in his regalia but we all enjoy it.

New Year will also be hotel orientated on the whole but the Thai's will also be celebrating this time, go along to Market village for a free disco, and midnight firework display usually sponsered by Chang Beer which freely flows sometimes quite literally and you do not want to be on a motor bike under any circumstances whatsoever on this night.
