TAT Listings[edit]

Just placing the TAT listings at Talk:Hua Hin/Listings for future reference, as they'd clutter the main page. --globe-trotter 22:59, 2 February 2010 (EST)

Update November 2012[edit]

by user (taken from the article's page)

Backpackers experience - there are a lot of older family couples (sometimes with little children) strolling in relaxed manner around the main entertainment area not far from the beach (with KFCs, King Burgers and a lot of Italian restaurants), but this same area can also be described as an open air brothel - there are many big and small bars and tiny night clubs that stay open long time after midnight and each of those establishments maintains a squad of 10 or more prostitutes. While walking down the street you'll get hundreds of kinds of invitations to "relax" in those establishments from these women and from men dressed as women well. You will also see a lot of european men mostly older than 50 making out with these girls right on the street. I've seen a guy in his 60s holding hand of his (probably) grandson and at the same time making out with a prostitute from the bar while rubbing his parts against her belly. Also the cheapest guesthouse i could find was 300bahts for dirty room with a double bed (the sheets and towel were clean and smelled nice though) and cold shower.

I'm trying to update Hua Hin wikitravel page with information that shows the town for what it really is[edit]

I'm trying to update Hua Hin wikitravel page with information that shows the town for what it really is. And my piece of info has been deleted 3 times already. There must be a stop to this - i got to the town thinking that it's a quiet place on the coast and when i got there i realized that it's actually another brothel town (much like Patong on Phuket).

The edit is written from your perspective, Wikitravel functions as a opinion-free travel guide, you could say thing in a politically correct, and opinion free way. Also you've just created a completely new sections to the text, which should obviously be added to stay safe -section. Don't get me wrong, I understand how such information is valuable to some travelers, but we still have to follow our guidelines in writing. I linked the welcome message to your talk page where you can find links to all the information needed to make a good input. --OVK 10:25, 15 December 2012 (EST)

Point taken, but at the same time my piece of info is crucial to understanding of what this town is (it's not valuable just for some tourists - it's important for all tourists to understand if they will find themselves in town like patong or in town like chang rai). So, following your logic, most of other info about this town (especially the part that says that is a good place for a family vacation) should be deleted also - because it was obviously put here to mislead people. Well, when editing this article i'm, thanks to you, will delete the unnecessary pieces instead of rewriting or adding something to it.

I feel that you've misinterpreted what I was trying to say. What I wanted to say was that your edit IS valuable to all travelers going to this destination, but the fact why it was removed was that it was not added in the correct way. --OVK 13:51, 16 December 2012 (EST)

I disagree: I have actually live in Hua Hin and just a very very small area is as you say like a Walking Street (Party) area. 99.9% of the area is not as you stated “another brothel town (much like Patong on Phuket)”. If Hua Hin is a brothel town then every town and city in the world is a brothel. As cities go Hua Hin is rather laid back and most areas are quiet, sometimes to quiet. Maybe you should stop using Lady Boys as tour guides and go out and see the rest of the area. Gainesville, Florida the other city I live in would really be bad comparing it to Hua Hin.

Hello, please feel free to update the guide if anything is out of line! Thank you! IBcaldera (talk) 20:10, 8 June 2015 (EDT)
