About Hua Hin

Only 200 km to the south of Bangkok on Gulf of Thailand sea, Hua Hin is a Royal resort town boasting a fine beach, good eateries of both Thai and international tastes, accommodations for all budgets, lots of shopping opportunities, night life and entertainment places plus year round good weather and sun shine.

Hua Hin is also famous for golf, meeting place for businesses and organizations, music festivals, markets and a starting point for forest adventure in the hills in the west. For those who want to stay in Thailand for long term or for retirement, there are many property projects to choose from.

Its night life is small compared to Pattaya, Phuket and Koh Samui. But it is lively, intimate and delightful. Restaurants, guesthouses, tailor shops, shop houses and gardens line the narrow streets that criss cross the main roads.

The beach, a few large hotels, restaurants and a boat pier are on the eastern side. On the boat landing bridge is a docking place for small fishing boats and a market where catch from the sea are traded. People scroll along the beach. Horse riding is available. Also available are water sports, boat trips out into the sea and to the islands.
