i can't recommend any place in particular, but if you are looking for budget prices like the Thais pay, go to Pranburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan.

(sorry Expats in Pranburi and Prachuap Khiri Khan, but Hua Hin is full now)

and as always, if something is in English on the internet you are already paying more that the Thais.

go to Cha Am and look around the beach area for rooms for rent. many there that are not on the internet.

Idiots who get shafted and enjoy it apparently too.

'shafted' ? 2 quid for a chilled coconut frappe and I'm being shafted ?

 

How stressful is your life ?

in such situations, i refuse to pay and tell them to call the police. Never fear even if they intimidate you. They cannot do any s  it.

95 percent of the time, they reduce the amount on the bill. sometime more than half!! sometimes i pay one quarter!

they dont want to deal with police called by farang.

 

But for Thais, it is different. In Thai culture, no such a thing as bargaining or arguing for a bill as a non confrontational society.

They always pay the bill without much questions and complain after rarely such as in this case.

They should refuse to pay right away and call the police too for such scams.

 

By the way, Hua Hin became a horrible place in last 5 - 6 years. 10 years before it was a quiet and cheap place.

Now, it is a rip off place with high prices and low service in return. It has a crazy traffic and sometime a kilometer is taking like 30 minutes! bc no u turns.

Also lots of police hassle in Hua hin. It was my favorite place as i live in western bangkok and reaching there was taking like 2 hours with my bike.

Now, i never go there.

There are U turns along the entire Hua Hin main drag and elsewhere, dozens of them - I think you need to update your GPS

 

Never had any 'police hassle'

 

Did you check out every restaurant in Hua Hin to garner everywhere is 'high prices and low service' or did you base that on your frugal lifestyle where you are prepared to involve the police for paying 50baht over the top for fried rice ? I know dozens that are an absolute bargain, quality food and amazing service. 

 

Sorry you won't be returning - you'll be sadly missed by the local economy
