I get to hang out and be surrounded by like-minded individuals; people who love sports, fitness, and those who enjoy the fruits of an active and balanced life.

What do you like most about Hua Hin?
I like the hiking trails, charming seaside points of interest and back country escapes, coupled with a charming and welcoming community, truly makes Hua Hin one of a kind. Plus, if I need a little more excitement, Bangkok is not too far to make a quick getaway, yet it’s far enough from the vigorous hustle and bustle the city is known for.
What is your favorite restaurant and why?
The Beach at Anantasila Bar and Restaurant. The ambience and food reminds one of home and the quiet beachside location is a plus. And they allow guests to bring their pets along.

Spending time with my kids doing the things we love-Play, Eat, Sleep Repeat.
What would you recommend to new-comers to do in Hua Hin and why?
