Hua Hin is “The Ideal Retirement Haven You’ve Never Heard Of” said US News and World Report. They got the ‘never heard of’ part right, but the rest of the article is crap. Some on the local expat forum are commenting on the gross errors. Many more comments at usnews.com take the author to task. My rule of thumb for articles about expat life is first check who wrote it. If their day job is a real estate shill then most of the info will be wrong.
