Well, what do you know? We blink and all of a sudden we are bang in the middle of the year, straddling that weird line between shock and excitement. Shock because the years go by faster and faster and excitement because… well, who doesn’t love the festive season?
Of course, we are headed into Thailand’s monsoon season and when it rains in Thailand, it pours, but that doesn’t mean we have to stay indoors. June brings with it a variety of things to do and experience and this month’s issue of What’s On in Hua Hin lets you in on the fun. So, pen in those dates and set your reminders because this June we’ll be busy bees.
To start off the month, SO Sofitel Hua Hin in Cha Am celebrates love and equality as they invite guests to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and half a century of LGBTQ liberation. Join this special SO Beach Party and the DRAG ME HOME exclusive extravaganza, featuring show-stopping performances and over-the-top theatrical experiences by Thailand’s top drag queens. Book your tickets today and come dressed in your finest Drag ensemble.
