    Hua Hin Travel - Where To Eat - Where To Stay


    Hua Hin Beach

    Once just a small fishing village, Hua Hin has developed into a tourist town full of hotels, seafood restaurants, bars and travel agents. Thanks to the royal influence, compared to similar beach resorts in Thailand the area has a limited seediness factor, making it a good option for families. The long beach, with generally calm waters, is another family draw. The beach at the center of town is quite dirty due to runoff from guesthouses, but moving south from the Hilton, the water becomes cleaner and the beach less crowded.

    How to Get There

    By Air:Siam GA Airlines (www.huahinairport.com) runs a shuttle service from Bangkok to Hua Hin four times per day, the flight takes 45 minutes. It is in a Cessna so it is only for the hearty traveler.

    By Mini Bus: Most people take the three and a half hour drive to Hua Hin in a Taxi.Try a mini-van from Bangkok for a more relaxed trip where you can spread out with plenty of legroom and enjoy the trip at your leisure. Around three thousand Baht one way which can be spilt depending on how many people you have travelling.

    Where To Stay

    The City Beach Resort is centrally located in Hua Hin town. A short 10 minute walk to the white sandy beaches of Hua Hin. Staying during Songkran.

    What To See

    Hua Hin Station

    Though the beaches and swimming pools are always beckoning, the Hua Hin area also has shopping, temples, waterfalls, caves, quaint neighborhoods and historical sites that will create memories for all members of the family. The Train Station pictured at left is an original building that will give you an idea of Thailand in a bygone era. A leisurely drive though the countryside, where one can see rice paddies and pineapple plantations, children playing in the canals, and the beautiful scenery of Prachuapkirikhan and Petchburi provinces is also a must. The shopping in Hua Hin is far more expensive than Bangkok, while basically offering the same type products, if you want bargains you will probably want to do your shopping back in Bangkok.

    A Four Kilometer canal trip along the Khlong Khao Daeng is a great way to spend an hour or so. It is a good way to stay cool in the evening, or a great place to see birds early in the morning. The scenery is breathtaking and you may spot a monitor lizard out for a swim or some monkeys swinging through the branches.
