About Travel to Hua Hin
Hua Hin was Thailand’s first proper beach resort destination. The King of Thailand built a palace near Hua Hin in the 1920s and Thai people, particularly Bangkok residents on weekend trips, have been coming to Hua Hin on holiday ever since. The character of the city is very much that of a holiday town in the same way as Brighton in the UK and Nha Trang in Vietnam. What Hua Hin lacks in terms of historical attractions (there are very few) and nightlife (there isn’t much) Hua Hin more than makes up for in facilities for tourists, particularly older tourists. Hua Hin has lots of value for money hotels, ranging from 5 Star establishments such as the beach Hilton Hotel, to much more affordable guesthouses set back from the beach near the railway station on the Sa Song Road.
Hua Hin’s main attraction is its 5 km long beach. After Pattaya and Cha Am, Hua Hin has the closest decent beach to Bangkok. Pattaya is generally considered a little downmarket for well off Bangkok residents, and when they want to get away to the seaside for the weekend then they come to Hua Hin. A second big draw for Thai tourists is the seafood. Hua Hin has several very well known seafood restaurants, ranging from moderately to fairly expensive, on the Nares Damri Road in the centre of Hua Hin. The seafood at these restaurant is average to good, but the dining areas are situated on former fishing piers over the sea and the settings for these restaurants are their big selling point. For much the same quality seafood, but at a fraction of cost, we recommend going to eat at one of the seafood stalls in Hua Hin Night Market, which is on the Dechanuchit Road near to the railway station. Seafood dishes here cost no more than 200 THB each and the atmosphere is very lively.
