About Travel to Hua Hin
Hua Hin is a large town with over 60,000 inhabitants and a major holiday destination. Hua Hin is, however, a different type of destination to other major tourist centres in Thailand such as Pattaya, Phuket or Koh Samui in many ways.
Tourism in Hua Hin
Hua Hin was Thailand’s first beach front tourist destination. Travelling on holiday to Hua Hin first became fashionable amongst Thai people in the 1930s following the example of the Thai Royal Family who built vacation palaces close to Hua Hin. The construction of the Southern Railway Line also made travel from Bangkok to Hua Hin faster and cheaper and accessible to a wider range of people.
Domestic tourists, many from Bangkok, still make up a large proportion of the visitors to Hua Hin. In terms of foreign visitors Hua Hin attracts generally older visitors, and is particularly popular with visitors from Scandanavia.
Things to Do in Hua Hin
The main attraction of Hua Hin is the 5 km long Hua Hin Beach, behind which is the town. The beach is pleasant and the sea is good for swimming. Some parts of the beach are more busy than others, however, because its so long it never really gets as crowded as some other popular beaches in Thailand such as Ao Nang.
Other than the beach, the big attraction in Hua Hin is its many restaurants, and in particular its seafront fish restaurants. The Nares Damri Road in the centre of the town has a cluster of fish restaurants built on former fishing boat piers. The dining areas are on the wooden piers with customers sitting above the ocean. Most weekends these restaurants host large groups of Thai holiday makers who come to Hua Hin specifically to eat at these famous restaurants.
Hua Hin does not have much in the way of nightlife. Bars of the kind you find on Walking Street in Pattaya and Patong are largely confined to a single street, Soi Bintabaht. One place that is lively in the evenings in the charming Hua Hin Night Market on Dechanuchit Alley, near the train station.
