In 1941, Billy Strayhorn wrote “Take the A Train” for the Duke Ellington band. On Wednesday December 12, music fans will “Take the Jazz Train” for a wonderful concert excursion along the Gulf of Thailand.
The fun starts at 11:00am with a live show at Hua Hin’s historic railway station. When the train pulls in, lucky ticket holders (and the band!), will board their own private rail car for the 3 hour trip to Sala Thai Resort. The rail line follows close to the shore at this point, for wonderful views and live music all the way.
On arrival guests will enjoy lunch, a variety of beach activities, and strolling the vicinity of Baan Krut, one of Thailand’s most charming ‘undiscovered’ resort areas. At sunset, there will be a deluxe buffet dinner and live concert with two separate bands. After that, musicians will join forces for a free-form ‘open jam’. Guests who sing or play an instrument are encouraged to join in.
In the morning, guests can take it easy with a leisurely buffet brunch and optional excursion to Wat Maha Chedi, a beautiful and distinctive hilltop temple overlooking the sea. Optionally, guests can book Sala Thai’s own fishing boat for cruising and fishing. After lunchtime, VIP buses will whisk us all back to Hua Hin in comfort and style.
Tickets for the Jazz Train excursion will go on sale to the public on Monday November 19, at just 2,500 baht per person, including transportation, double-occupancy lodging, all food, and entertainment. With just 62 seats available, tickets are sure to go fast.
