Hua Hin is similarly noted for its magnificent beach, running from a rocky headland, which separates it from a tiny fishing port, and curving gently for some three kilometers to its southern point where Buddhist temples cling to the cliffs.

As Hua Hin is located on the western side of the Gulf of Thailand, it’s hardly surprising that it is well-endowed with some great beaches. Most are wide and long, with generally shallow depths and very mild currents. As a result, they are safe for all the family.

The seaside town of Hua Hin, meaning “Stone Head”, was named after the rocks at the north end of the powdery sand beach. With a 5 kilometer-long beach that features numerous activities. In addition to beach fun and games, outstanding seafood restaurants, and a vibrant night market, Hua Hin is well known for having some of the finest golf courses in Thailand, as well as some of the most renowned resorts and destination spas in the world.

 

How to go

Buses between Bangkok and Hua Hin are served by Bangkok’s Sai Tai Mai terminal, and depart every 20 minutes for the 3 ½ hour journey. Fares for first class bus seats cost around 200 baht. There is also bus service that is scheduled to connect Hua Hin with Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport Buses to and from cities in southern Thailand are generally overnight services, departing Hua Hin around 10 pm and arriving early in the morning; such buses cost between 750-1000 baht depending on destination.

Getting Around Hua Hin:

Hua Hin proper is small enough that you won’t need anything more than two feet to get around. If you want to venture to farther beaches or to surrounding sites, consider renting a car or motorbike.

What to Do

If you’re not lounging on the beach or your resort’s pool, consider horseback riding! In Hua Hin there are always horses available for rent and guides who will lead you if you are not an experienced rider. You can also hike up the nearby mountains or travel a little farther to one of the country’s prettiest national parks, Sam Roi Yot.
