About Hua Hin

Situated in the South-East of Thailand, Hua Hin is a former fishing village turned seaside resort. After the Thai royal family built summer palaces in the area it became a popular and fashionable retreat for Bangkok residents. The long beaches are great for water sports, particularly kite surfing, and are lined with high-end hotels and great seafood restaurants. Our pick of the best places to stay in Hua Hin is a luxury property that won't break the bank.

The area is hot year round but to avoid the rainy season, aim to visit between November and April.

What not to miss:

Hua Hin Beach - Great for families, the beach is clean and the sea is warm! Take a pony ride along its length for a relaxing way to see the area.

Hua Hin Hills Vineyard - Nestled in the hills and not far from the Huay Mongkol Temple, the vineyard is stunning and renowned for its great wine.

Hutsadin Elephant Foundation - Trek through the forest on these friendly elephants before cooling down the babies with a shower! The foundation also offers talks on the backgrounds of the rescued elephants under their care.

Cicada Market - A great place to pick up a trinket, visit this market in the day or night time to soak up the atmosphere and indulge in some traditional food and drink.

And for the best places to stay in Hua Hin we recommend:
