Hua Hin Mini Guide
The city was a quiet fishing village until discovered by Thai royalty in the 1920s. It then began an era of momentous growth as everyone wanted to visit the area so loved by their revered king. Today it is still growing but is mindful of the blight that unregulated growth can cause and so has a careful plan so the region isn’t spoiled.
How do I get to Hua Hin?
Hua Hin has its own airport with two routes; one to Bangkok, a flight that takes around half an hour, and another from Kuala Lumpur
bringing in international tourists. Both airports are excellent hubs for travellers from further afield and it’s possible to get flights to both with a range of UK
and foreign national airlines. Once at the airport, you can hire a car but you can also get a bus or taxi into Hua Hin before hiring a car in the city.
What can I see or do in Hua Hin?
The beach is the main attraction and it is one of the best in Thailand. A long stretch of white sand with many facilities, it’s where most tourists spend their days. There are many fabulous buildings in Hua Hin of note and one of the most unusual is the railway station which used to be a royal pavilion on the city’s palace. Klai Kangwon is unusual among Thai palaces as it is built in a Spanish style and instead of being in the city or in forests like many other palaces it stands on a bluff looking out to sea and is very atmospheric.
Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s most beautiful cities with a glorious beach and lots of activities to entertain the tourist. You can of course simply spend your days on the beach or by renting a quality hire car through us, explore more of the region.
