From a replica of a spaceship to a flying saucer, these “interstellar” homes are sure to transport you to the galaxy and beyond!
In Thailand, Prachuap Kirikhan and the nearby area of Hua Hin on the Gulf Coast was originally a destination retreat for Bangkok’s elite but today is a resort getaway popular with travellers from all over Thailand and around the world. In 1868 French astrologers and King Rama IV journeyed to the area to observe a Total Solar Eclipse. Known for its clean airs and refreshing coastal breeze, the area is an ideal place for some star-gazing and moon-spotting and this holiday house in the heart of Prachuap Town makes for an ideal base.
