If you’re looking to discover the lesser-known spots of Hua Hin, Phuket, Pattaya and Koh Samui, stay tuned. From visiting a Thai vineyard to kayaking through crystal blue waters and appreciating the works of Thai artists, there are still unexplored gems to discover in these accessible holiday destinations.
A visit to a vineyard in Thailand may be exactly what you need to make your trip to Hua Hin complete. Located less than an hour’s drive from the classic beach town is Monsoon Valley Vineyard, which was founded in 2001 by wine-lover and Thai entrepreneur Chalerm Yoovidhya. With his vision to create a Thai wine culture, the vineyard has grown to produce award-winning wines that pair perfectly with Asian dishes. Take a day trip to experience the uniqueness of Thai terroir with its sandy and loamy soil enriched with shells and fossils, providing added minerals and freshness to the wines.
Tour the grounds, try wine label painting, as well as a plethora of other activities such as a ‘wine safari’ that explores the nearby Kuiburi National Park. For those seeking a more relaxed visit, simply kick back and imbibe the local wine, paired with Thai food overlooking picturesque countryside views.
