Hua Hin is not a big city by any stroke of the imagination but it has a healthy population of about 80 000 people. It is constantly growing though, as its popularity increases.
A great advantage of visiting Thailand is the beautiful scenery and weather. Visitors need to take full advantage of the natural beauty of Thailand. There are so many outdoor activities that you can use and we’ll discuss them here.
In general, Thais look on Hua Hin as a romantic seaside getaway with style. This is a notion that has been around for about a century. It all began because Hua Hin became popular with the royal family and upper classes as a summer destination. The result is that there are several beautiful summer homes and villas and even a palace or two.
The night scene in Hua Hin is not quite as wild as what you would find in Phuket or Bangkok but it is still exhilarating. There are a lot of bars in Hua Hin and the vast majority of these are located on the Soi Binthabat or in the centre of town. Most of these are family friendly during the day or early evening but they do tend to get loud late at night.
About three hours away from Bangkok you will find in Hua Hin – the most popular beach resort in Thailand. Not only is there plenty for adults to do in terms of shops, bars and restuarants, there is also a lot to occupy kids. It is a very friendly place, with a very relaxed vibe and friendly people. Your kids will be nagging you to go back every year – one holiday isn’t enough to get through everything this resort has to offer.
There is a lot to choose from when it comes to activities to enjoy in Hua Hin. Whether it is family activities you are looking for or something more adventurous, Hua Hin has something for you.
Hua Hin ranks as one of my favourite towns in Thailand. Just three hours out of Bangkok, it is popular with tourists and Thais. Getting to Hua Hin from Bangkok is fairly quick and not expensive. There are several different ways to travel and each has its own pros and cons.
Hua Hin easily takes the title of one of the most popular resort towns in Thailand. Away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, this town still offers plenty for the tourist to do, day and night.
