When you are a tourist in Thailand but it is similar in almost all warm countries, every time you come to the hotel lobby, you have two options. Sleeping in a room "with a fan and strength, I imagine spending the night with a girl hysterical shouting my name interspersed with small screaming wonder autographs and trying to tear my shirt. But intelligence made, it is not such a fan of , just a gadget with 3 propellers turning on the ceiling to give a semblance of air. Or to have the air con. It seems that most people choose this option ...
So, I awake my night with air con, I take my little bf then leave my guesthouse American Management Station Hua Hin. Objective: to win Prachuap Khiri Khan, 80 km south. Travel time by train: 1:30, outdoor temperature: 33 ° C. Only here do not need snow or take the Eurostar for a train is late. Mine will be in 2:30. Ask me why I did not understand the explanations in the Thai speaker. Once mounted on the train, it is a 3rd class a little complicated to get a seat but I'm getting. And it always amazes me, yet this is not the first time it happens but the family that shares the two benches facing each other with me, now proposes to share the sticky rice they come from buy a street vendor, now drink their water bottles. While we do not know and they do not speak a word of English. It would never happen in the RER that! Or I'd suspicious.
Station Prachuap Khiri Khan is a little on the same model as that of Hua Hin but smaller and without a large photo of the king in his shirt style Magnum without the mustache. I get off my car and decided to take my suitcase as a major in the streets of the city. Looking for a guesthouse or hotel forgotten by the Lonely Planet or the Backpacker both rare they cite do not trigger their enthusiasm or are overly priced a bit high compared to those I habit. In fact there are mainly three major hotels on the seafront and all are in the same price (650 baht for air-conditioned room and more if sea view) and then I found a bit more in the city Nopporn Hotel (in my opinion does not look for a meaning in English is the name of Thai). For 400 baht, I find myself in a spacious room with a king size bed ", the most comfortable bed in which I stayed up there with bathroom with hot water, TV , air conditioning and free wifi. All in a brand new property with a small pool below. And seafront 2 minutes walk. Clearly my best option since my arrival in Thailand. And I must say that it falls somewhat (the word is right) when you know that I'm going to stay a little longer than expected. But pending. You know the reason for this prolonged stay in the next episode of misadventures, uh sorry adventures in Asia by Michael ...
