About travel to Hua Hin
Hua Hin has been popular as a beach resort destination since the 1930s with the Thai Royal Family leading the way by building residences in and around Hua Hin. Larger numbers of tourists followed when the construction of the Southern Railway Line made it easier and faster to travel from Bangkok to Hua Hin for weekend visits, and this remains a popular choice of short getaway from Bangkok today. A much more significant proportion of the tourists who to come to Hua Hin are Thai compared to other popular destinations such as Phuket and Koh Samui. The explanation for this, however, goes beyond Hua Hin being close to Bangkok.
Hua Hin has its own special character that will suit some visitors more than others. Hua Hin has very little of the type of nightlife that Patong in Phuket or Chaewng in Koh Samui has. The focus of the city’s leisure attractions for tourists are the seafood restaurants, night markets and long quiet beach. The pace of life in Hua Hin is slow and it lacks the hard edge of the atmosphere of the busier parts of other tourist towns such as Pattaya. There is not, truth be told, a great deal to go and see in Hua Hin. There is a large water park, a royal residence, some shopping centres and golf courses but relatively few of what could be described as major tourist attractions, although it still attracts lots of tourists. Hua Hin also has quite a large community of foreign retirees, many from Scandinavia who appreciate the slower pace of life, wide open spaces and good value for money prices.
