Khao Sam Roi Yot

It was HOT

Okay so I think this was my favorite vacation while we were in Thailand. I know I’ve said that before though 😆 It was such a relaxing and humble vacay.

Khao Sam Roi Pot is in the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province in Thailand. It is even more south than Hua Hin.

We took a van from Mahachai on a random weekend in September 2019. From there, we went to the van stop in Khao Sam Roi Yot. It only took a little less than three hours. After we landed at the van stop, we took a grab to Stella Resort.

This dude showed us around the cave

Our room had one bed so the owner gave us an extra mattress for cheap.

The first day we woke up bright and early and had some of the complimentary breakfast that included eggs, toast and some fruit. There was one other couple there. I guess the resort was pretty empty.

The resort had motorbikes so we rented two for the day for I think 300 Baht each? All we had to do was bring back a full tank of gas when we returned them. I drove my own bike while Indria drove Christina and herself. I live life on the edge.

Stella Resort

We hiked our way up to Sai Cave and Khao Daeng View Point all in one day. The park was huge so the bikes were definitely useful and worth it. Each hike took about an hour one way.

While riding through the park, we got to see some cows and monkeys along the road. So cool!!!

We got some yummy food after our long hike.

After venturing around the park all day, we ended up at Searchlight Bar. We got a drink and chilled.

This guy from the UK owned it and he had a mini library there.

Then, we got a cute little dinner and saw some more farangs. There was also a cat there so that always makes things better.

The restaurant was across from a beach. I got a salad because feta. It was raining, but it was still a spectacular view. The beach picture above with the bike was our view!!

Greek salad!!!

That Saturday night, we had a chill night at the resort. We bought some wine and drank by the pool. We played some cards and talked a bunch. It was a memorable night.

The Sunday that we left, the owner of the resort was so sweet, she called the van company and they brought us back to Mahachai.

Pretty view from the resort!

We always said that we wanted to go back. When we visit Thailand again, that is going to be on the list, for sure. It was such a great mini vacay, I can’t wait until we go back and have another relaxing weekend at Khao Sam Roi Yot 😀

Indria’s Birthday @Hua Hin

thailand
Tuk Tuk ride to our hostel

Hua Hin is a district heading toward the south of Thailand in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

The weekend before Indria’s 23rd birthday in 2019, Indria, Christina, and I took a mini trip to Hua Hin. Luckily, Mahachai had a van stop that went from there to Hua Hin. It only took about two hours and some change for us to get there.

Soi Bintabaht

From the van stop we took a tuk tuk to our hostel. We stayed at Baan Rajdamnern Hua Hin Resort, which Google says is closed now.

The hostel was interesting. It was right near Hua Hin Market Village. The room had three beds but the bathroom was in a separate part of the building so we had to walk outside to go there.

We went to the famous Hua Hin Soi Bintabaht Walking Street.

Along our stroll, we came across this place called Ibiza. We became friends with the owner, met random peeps, and played pool.

First night

The DJ was great too. We requested some Britney Spears, J Biebs, and a few of our other favorites then we got to jam out to them.

After it closed, the owner and some of his friends took us to this restaurant where we drank some more.

The next day, we had a beach day. Before we beached it, Indria and I found a Au Bon Pain because bagels. Au Bon Pain was always on my mind when we went to Bangkok or a touristy area because I was deprived of bagels while in Thailand.

After beaching it, we went to a restaurant on the beach and it was cute.

Our second night was just as entertaining. We tried to go to this Jamaican bar but it ended up being dead so we just stayed on the tuk tuk and went back to what we knew: Ibiza.

Jaidee celebration 🎉

Every single time we tried to venture off and try something new in Thailand, we were reminded as to why we stuck to what we knew.

We hung out with the owner again and met this group of bikers and they were chill.

When we got back to our hostel, there was this kitten that followed us upstairs. We sat outside on the bench and talked while I played with her 💕 I wanted to bring her inside but Christina is allergic 😔

The night of her actual birthday, which was a Monday, we went to Jaidee and then Whaz. The performer who was singing that night sang happy birthday and we got a cake. It was a nice lil celebration.
