My college age daughter is studying in Thailand, and I'm visiting her over my spring break. She lives in Hua Hin, and being 21, wants to get out of town. I will only be in Thailand for 10 days and don't want to spend it all going in transit from place to place. We are spending 3 days in Chiang Mai and 3 in Hua HIn (when she might actually attend class!). She says negative things about Hua Hin but I am reading good reviews. Is it worth the effort to leave Hua Hin and spend the last 3 days in Phi Phi? I'd like some quality beach time - not too quiet but not too big a party scene either - good restaurants and things to do. Maybe another location closer to Hua Hin?
