Travel Photo Thursday, June 23, 2011…At the Beach, Hua Hin, Thailand

Posted by on Jun 24, 2011 in Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 18 comments

Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday I’ve just arrived in Halifax, and I’m still not seeing quite straight. A long trip it was, and I am totally jet lagged. My photo for this week has nothing to with Halifax. Do enjoy the shot, and next week I will definitely be featuring Nova Scotia.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Perhaps you can give them a tweet, a stumble, or a comment on their TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

This weeks shot is the beautiful beach in Hua Hin, Thailand. Only a couple of hours out of Bangkok, it’s easily accessible for a quick beach holiday. Although developers are trying to brand Hua Hin as more upscale, there is still plenty of good budget accommodation available. I discovered that it was best to go there and find something on site. Many of the cheaper properties are not available via the Internet. There is also a great night market here, and great outdoor seafood dining at reasonable prices.

  1. That beach looks very relaxing….nice photo, Nancie!

  2. Nice shot! It kind of reminds of a San Diego beach. Hua Hin sounds like my kind of place. We’ll definitely have to check it out when we are in Thailand.

  3. I love a beach with hardly anyone on it! 🙂

  4. What a pretty beach 🙂 And guess what! I have a beach shot too this week… but mine looks very different. Oh, don;t you just love the beach?

  5. This photo brings back such good memories of when I lived in Bangkok and we would go to Hua Hin for a weekend getwaway. Nothing beats the beach and a beach massage.

  6. The beach looks really nice – but it looks very built up off in the distance.Is it? I wonder how much more development Thailand can absorb.
    I look forward to seeing more of Nova Scotia. Enjoy your time there.

  7. Beautiful! Seems like a hidden gem.

  8. Looks like a great place – good tips too on the market, outdoor seafood (yes!) and non-internet bookings.

  9. Beautiful – but can’t wait to see your pictures from Halifax and the rest of Nova Scotia. Have fun!

  10. The only thing better than a sparsely populated beach is one with a great night market and outdoor seafood dining at reasonable prices!

  11. aaaa beaches…counting the days till my beach holiday back home in Malta in July!

  12. Nice photo. I like how the soft colour of the sand gradually glides over into the pale blue ocean.

  13. Wow this is beautiful. I can’t wait to see Thailand. Hope you enjoying your holiday visit.

  14. Love the beach scene and the advice. I’m a bit under the influence. Sorry, I was late. It’s Thursday where?

    • Mike……it was Thursday in Nova Scotia when I posted this, now it’s Saturday………are you confused yet? 🙂

  15. Beaches always seem to be very relaxing to me.

  16. Nice shot of a very relaxing place. Thanks for sharing!

  17. Beaches make such great subjects for pictures. They are so beautiful and peaceful.
