Here is how you will spend your time
Day 1: Arrival At Bangkok And Transfer To Hua Hin
Depart from Bangkok to Petchburi, which is dominated by a small hill known as Khao Wang (Palace Mountain), where King Mongkut had a summer palace built in 1860. Named Phra Nakhon Khiri, it is now a Historical Park consisting of palace buildings, temples, halls, even an observatory where the King used to view the stars. To reach the hilltop, you can either walk or take a cable car. Then visit Wat Yai Suwannaram: The main shrine hall contains 300-year-old mural paintings of mythical angels. The multi-purpose hall, once located in Ayutthaya's Grand Palace, is entirely built of teak wood and decorated with fine carving work especially at the door panels. Drive to the fishing village of Had Chao Samran. During the dry season, you can often observe people working on salt fields, a nice and welcome motive for photographers. After lunch at a seaside restaurant, continue to Hua Hin and check in at the IBIS HUA HIN. Overnight at hotel.
