Back in the 1920’s King Rama VII founded Hua Hin as the royal getaway. From there it developed into the aristocracy’s beach resort before more recently becoming a modern holiday destination with yesteryear’s charm.
The mile long beach is picturesque with smooth granite boulders jutting out into the bay. Charming wooden piers house rustic seafood restaurants with romantic atmospheres.
Hua Hin is small enough to wander around without the need of a taxi or any other form of transportation. A plethora of souvenir shops, tailors, restaurants and markets create a unique beach town atmosphere.
It’s easy to get to Hua Hin from Bangkok with daily flights or under 3 hours by road.
Hua Hin is a great place for a convenient break from Bangkok. For longer beach holidays we recommend main resort islands such as Phuket and Koh Samui.
