OVERVIEW

Hua Hin is a picturesque seaside resort city in the Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Once a sleepy fishing village, Hua Hin became the favourite retreat of royalty in the 1920’s and is now very popular with Bangkok’s well-to-do, who flock to this cosmopolitan beach resort for weekends and holidays. To this day, the current reigning monarch comes to stay in the exquisite Klai Kangwon Palace (aptly named Far From Worries), and while you cannot enter the palace itself you can go walking or jogging through its outer gardens to experience a taste of the royal lifestyle.

Hua Hin’s biggest draw is arguably its 5km stretch of golden sand beach, perfect for snorkelling, swimming and sunbathing, but there are plenty of other things to see and do in the city besides spending your days in the sea. Hua Hin has become increasingly more developed over the years and now boasts a range of world-class hotels, restaurants, golf courses and spas for visitors to take advantage of. You can also go pony riding on the beach, explore the city’s vibrant night markets or go for an elephant trek.

For outdoorsy couples, fishing trips, eco cruises and boat tours can be arranged during your stay, and there are several natural sites of interest in the surrounding area, ranging from the beautiful Sam Roi Yot National Park, 60km away, to the more local Widllife Friends Foundation Thailand, where you can see monkeys, elephants, gibbons and other indigenous species and learn more about the region’s wildlife.
