    I have to agree with the rest of the guys, Hua Hin is a lovely place for a first trip with kids.

    We will back in Hua Hin in December, having done Phuket and Samui at xmas during the past, I would not go back during that peak period.
    I have booked a 2 bedroom condo for 12,500bht per week in Hua Hin which is on the beach and opposite the market viallage. The market village is a shoping mall which has shops and restaurants etc but also has ten pin bowling and soft paly for younger ones.

    As mentioned you have dolphin bay 30 minutes south of Hua Hin, great if you have transport, without you will soon get bored if staying for a couple of weeks, we were after one week.

    You could check out destinolgy, opodo, expedia, travel bag etc but if the price is to expensive then they could book
    the flights and accommodation seperate.

    I check out holiday lettings, holiday rentals and owners abroad when looking for accommodation, with having 2 kids a 2 bedroom apartment, room is a must.

    This will be the first time we have been to Hua Hin where I am going to rent a pickup, never needed one in the past.However this time we are going to go further south and explore Baan Saphan and surrounding areas.

    Lucky man!

    If you don't already know it, check out bangsaphanguide.com and you may care to have a look at a trip report I did from 18 months ago, which is mainly about the BangSaphan area:

    Hi Caller How are you and how Ooy?

    I dont know much about hotel in Hua Hin I do know more is Cha-Am because that is the place in Petchaburi where I came from but not a lot eigther as normally I stayed at my house and ride to Cha-Am also sometimes Hua Hin, I like a lot of places in PraJuab like Suan son patipat or Praanburi Forest i feel the beaches are nicer than Hua Hin beach.

    Gary, another couple of things about Hua Hin, near the Marriot where we stayed (near not in) there was a busy road out front and an excellent shopping Mall heading out of town on the other side of the road, only a few minutes walk, but they had tenpin bowling and I think cinema in there as well as some "flashy" shops and restaurants, the road takes a bit of go,go, go to get across ;-). There was also horse riding on the beach and lots of space.

    Ian, I think you'll find the ten pin bowling already has a mention.

    I know of the condos but have not been there for some time as it is not near the city or on a route.
    Black mountain has had many ups and downs over the last few years in regard to real estate.
    Lots of new thinks beibg built there I believe - water park and village.

    Gary, I don't know if your mate has sorted himself out yet but there's a deal here which might be interesting. I'm signed up to Groupon and Livingsocial deals for their daily e-mail bargains and inadvertently signed up to the Australian version of the latter (not the 'Newcastle' I thought it was!). Anyway, one of the deals today is what looks like an exceptional package at the 5-star Village Resort on Coconut Island off Phuket. With the upgrade option to a 2 bedroom villa with its own pool it works out at about £670 - a quick search on Agoda for random December dates comes in at about £340 per night and the package includes various trips, activities, massages etc. Looks like there's a fair amount going on in the resort itself but there is also a free 24 hour water taxi to Phuket itself. Obviously, he'd have to sort his own flights out and I am hearing horrific prices mentioned for December.

    Anyway:

    For me Koh Chang has everything. Beautiful beaches, great food and good for families. If you want a really nice location try Lonely Beach. There is a resort nearby called Bailin Beach Resort which is perfect for families. There is a nice pool area, gardens, restaurant and cheap with it. Plenty of kids play in the pool together so you can unwind.

    If you hire a motorbike you'll be at the best beach (Lonely) in 5 minutes. The only downside is there are no bars nearby so the entertainment is centered around what you make of it. There's a few pubs which don't have girls so they're family orientated. You're right on the coast so you can sit by the sea all night if desired. Book early though as it gets full really quickly.

    You can get a flight to Trat from BKK also.

    Hua Hin is nice also but it gets busy at xmas. We were there last year and had a great time. Cha - Am is the nicest beach area whereas Hua Hin isn't so wonderful on that front.

    I'd avoid Phuket and Samui due to the price and overcrowding.
