Chinese in Hua Hin

Recommended Posts

I was in Pattaya a few days ago and saw 100's if not 1000's of chinese tourists pouring onto  ferries headed for Hua Hin. I was wondering how  infested Hua Hin is with Chinese tourists and what impact, if any, they have on the area? Personally I have difficulty dealing with such a large presence of Chinese shouting and pushing and being their usual abrasive selves. Has the Chinese presence in Hua Hin detracted at all from the quality of life there? I was always interested in going to see Hua Hin but now I am reconsidering my plans based on seeing the hordes of Chinese pouring onto the ferries headed for Hua Hin. I am sure their economic clout is welcome in Hua Hin but have many bought real estate there?

Yea! Pattaya is relieved. Hua Hin is welcome to them.

 

That said, wherever it is that they go to in Hua Hin or Pattaya it isnt the same places that I go to, thankfully.

 

But are you sure that they werent just going out for a meal on those floating restaurants? Or going to Koh Larn for the day?

Hua Hin is pretty dead at the moment anyway. There aren't many people here Chinese or otherwise!

 

Generally I've noticed a bit of increase in Chinese tourists here over the years but by and large not that noticeable.

Where have I heard language like that before...except it was used then with reference to South American's coming to North America...?

OK back to watching the weather radar.

Do you have a work permit for that?

China has taken over Cambodia, in case you haven’t noticed.  Now they have their sights on Thailand.

KittenKong- Thanks you have enlightened me about going to eat at the floating restaurants on the pier at Pattaya as well as going to Koh Larn for the day. I wasn't aware of that. When I saw the huge crowds of Chinese racing to the boats it was in the late afternoon so I don't think they were headed to Koh Larn at that time. Some could have been going to eat at the floating restaurants.
