This is one of those beautiful tropical drinks that we all love, especially in the summer time gathered around the pool. Drinking this fun drink makes you feel you are on vacation at a lovely Thai seaside resort.
One of our favourite seaside beach resorts is Hua Hin. It is unlike any other beach resort in Thailand. If you're looking for bright lights and the frantic all-night action of cabarets and discos, you may be disappointed here.
However, if you enjoy walks through the quiet winding streets of a friendly coastal village, sampling delicious seafood in restaurants overlooking the brightly lit fishing boats on the Gulf of Thailand Hua Hin could very well be what you're looking for; Hua Hin has a special character all its own. It is a quiet, friendly area with a magnificient long and wide white sandy beach. You can ride horses along this beach or take long walks, or sit under a palm tree reading a book and watching the surf.
Another lovely seaside resort is just a few miles south of Hua Hin and this is Cha-Am in Petchburi Province. This coastal area is steeped in history. It was here that one of Ayutthaya's greatest kings stopped over with his troops, dismounting to admired the view and to clean their riding saddles - hence the resort's name derived from the Thai word cha-am, "the saddle".
Later on, it was the building of the railway line from Bangkok 200 miles north down to the Malaysian border during the early years of this century which turned Cha-Am and its neighbour, Hua Hin, from tiny fishing communities into a royal resort.
After a day in the sun on the lovely, peaceful beaches of the Hua Hin and Cha-Am area this is the perfect relaxing and refreshing drink to sip by the pool or while gazing at the beautiful sea.
