Chinese new year is a time when Taipei is very quiet – most taiwanese go back to their families, around the Island, for a week. We decided to take the opportunity to get away, to try and find some sun. Since I had to get a new visa we decided to go to Thailand, and combine the trip to Bangkok with 4 days at the beach in Hua Hin – about 3 hours drive south west of BKK.
We stayed at the Sofitel hotel in Hua Hin. A fabulous old “Railway Inn” from the 20’s.
