Hua Hin has been a holiday destination for Thailand’s royal and Bangkok’s wealthy for nearly 80 years. In recent years, package tourists from the West have also caught the eye of this small town on Thailand’s east coast.
Already in the 1920s, the King of Thailand got his permanent summer home here, and set up a railway line directly here from Bangkok. The palace, with the translated name Far From the Concerns Palace, is still used at times by Thailand’s current king, the most beloved King Bhumibol. This has benefited Hua Hin, including an excellent infrastructure.
In Hua Hin you will find some of Thailand’s most modern facilities outside Bangkok. In recent years, the authorities have worked hard to fix the beach, and the bathing water has clearly improved.
Hua Hin is a tourist destination all year round. In addition to the pleasures of bathing, the city also offers a pleasant night market, many decent restaurants and good hotels. As an added bonus, you get a short distance to Bangkok. The golf saviors should know that Hua Hin is the stronghold of golf sports in Thailand.
