Photographer's Note

Thailand's well known beach resort Hua Hin is about 5 hours by car from Bangkok and is very closely associated with the royal family. His Majesty the King of Thailand often stays in his palace at the seaside of Hua Hin during monsoon.

Hua Hin is one of the oldest and most traditional sea resort of Thailand, what my photograph clearly shows. It's a clash of cultures as Thais like most Asians will visit the beach fully dressed. They will play at the beach and the water dressed, what Western tourists would never do.

This charming sea resort used to be a sleepy holiday destination in 1980s, but meanwhile there are plenty of luxury hotels along its famously flat 8 km long sandy beach.
