17th DECEMBER 2018 ~ I at first thought they were the houses of the locals but when I saw a small group of (Malaysian) tourists walking along the veranda, I knew they were not. Many tourists might have missed this unique exhibition houses hidden among the stalls and tucked away from the main street. I had also never found this in any of the blogs I read before going.
The two-story houses were built with wood. There were rooms which housed exhibits of the past, something I could easily relate to and childhood memories came flooding back.
I think this should be some kind of original houses built in this area before things got commercialized. They were not that traditional though but the effort to preserve history for the future generation is something we could learn from the Thais. It clearly shows that people appreciate history more. Instead of demolishing old buildings, they are taken care and become an education centre.

I tried to find more information on this building but there was none so I just presumed all of the above. They could just rebuild the whole thing for tourism purpose but the intention is still clear. Therefore, make sure you climb up the wooden stairs and experience the 70's lifestyle in Hua Hin.
