If you’re travelling anywhere with a friend or partner, you’ll need to work out a proper schedule for your trip. This even applies for those staying in luxury resorts within Hua Hin as you’ll still want to make the most out of your time. So that you spend your holiday wisely, we’ve compiled a list of the top considerations to make whenever you create a new trip itinerary. With this advice, you can then enjoy yourself without stressing out over money or timing.
Cater to Each Other’s Needs
Once you’ve chosen your resort destination, it’s important to make the itinerary as enjoyable as possible for both parties. Have a look at the various attractions and activities in the area and discuss which ones you’d like to see. If you’re only staying there for a short time, planning your timetable is even more important. To be on the safe side, you might consider creating a schedule of your day to day activities. Make sure to look at the available options so you can cover all bases. For example, those staying in Hua Hin can do your research at what’s on offer in the surrounding area. This includes:
- Black Mountain Water Park
- Huay Mongkol Temple
- Klai Kangwon Palace
- Banyan Golf Course
- Plearn Wan
- Santorini Park
- Swiss Sheep Farm
This is just a select list of the different locations on offer in Hua Hin. Discuss your travels with your partner and see which attractions take your interest. Whether you want to play a few games of golf or chill out at your resort pool, this pre-planning step will help you organise the perfect itinerary.
Find Out Scheduled Times
Sometimes, you won’t have the flexibility to experience nearby attractions and activities whenever you want to. Instead, you’ll have to find out their opening hours and tailor you and your partner’s itinerary accordingly. As an example of this, you can only book the golfing green at a resort in Hua Hin at certain times. This means you’ll have to adjust your schedule to fit in with these reservations. In the same manner, you’ll have to keep track of when the local markets are open, which times are best to visit nearby temples, and when any Thai cultural performances are scheduled. Again, doing your research will have a very real effect on how you end up planning your trip for two and whether you can experience everything or not.
Take Money into Account
Of course, the amount of cash you have available will also be important. After all, if you don’t have enough, you won’t be able to experience all of the amazing sites and activities that Hua Hin has to offer! While travelling around Thailand is relatively safe, we recommend using a credit card so you avoid carrying too much cash around. In this way, you can make withdrawals from the local ATMs whenever you’re short on money. Some other financial planning tips when creating an itinerary for two include:
- Purchase a travel waist pocket so you can’t be easily pickpocketed
- When creating a budget, always include additional money just in case
- Research all costs such as resort rates, service charges, VAT, etc.
In this way, you can arrange a Hua Hin itinerary that is 100% feasible. Both you and your travel partner will be able to enjoy your time in this amazing city without having to worry about your finances.
This is all that you need to know about planning your next Thailand holiday. We wish you safe travels and hope that you enjoy this wonderful land, getting the most out of your properly planned schedule.
