The sandy shores of Hua Hin, just south of Bangkok, have been a top beach destination in Thailand since King Rama VII built the first of many royal summer retreats here in the 1920s.
The pristine beaches, secluded lagoons, world class golf courses, fine dining, and luxury spa resorts pull throngs of Thais and international guests on luxury tours of Thailand. Water sports are plentiful, and kiteboarding is particularly popular.
A bicycle is a great way to see Hua Hin’s lesser known sights such as the dollhouse-like Hua Hin Railway Station, or the 11-tiers of the scenic Namtok Pa La-u waterfall. Klai Kangwon Palace, Rama VII’s ‘Far From Worries’ summer retreat, is a must-see for many Thailand luxury tour itineraries.
Nearby Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is a perfect destination for a day-trip, and Khao Hin Lek Fai (Flint Mountain) offers scenic views of the area from its public park near the summit.
The high season for Hua Hin runs November through February with the best weather. The rains March through May resuscitate the landscape to a vibrant green, and the temperatures June through October are mild.
This beachside locale is a solid year-round destination for travelers on Thailand tours.
Less than 100 miles south of Bangkok, Hua Hin is best reached via private vehicle using Thailand’s modern roads.
The beaches and luxurious facilities are great for family getaways and quiet seaside vacations.
