My first visit to Hua Hin was in 1991. The bars in those days were Duncan's Kiwi Corner (on the corner of Chomsin), Head Rock (opposite the Hilton), Crocodile (one of the few on Bintabaht) and when those closed you could get a drink at G's (by Jed Pee Nong) and G2 (on the corner by the main traffic lights). You could get a drink at All Nations (Donny).
1992 was when Bintabaht really started taking off with bars setting up starting from the Hilton end of the soi. Bernie opened his bar on the left, The Rose Bar next to Bernie's, Terry (worked on The Melia Hotel - now Hilton)opened T's (old Crocodile) opposite. A few bars opened in the bazaar - Colin's Red Indian, before he moved to where Bernie's is now.
The town has certainly changed from those days.
