Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s most popular sea side resorts among overseas visitors as well as Thais. Hua Hin, is located 281 kiometres south of Bangkok or around three-hour for driving a car to go there. It is renowned as Thailand’s most traditional beach resort with many seafood restaurants, and a splendid sandy beach which starts from a rocky headland next to the port and curves gently for some 3 kilometres to its southern point where Buddhist temples surmount hilltops. It was here, in the 1920’s that King Rama VII built a summer palace, thus creating a vogue among high society for Hua Hin as a favourite retreat from Bangkok’s summer heat. Today the Royal Family continues to reside at Hua Hin for part of the year. Hua Hin is a well-established beach destination, with full facilties. In contrast to Pattaya, the long-established resort on the opposite shore of the Gulf, Hua Hin provides a quiet, relaxed retreat amid surroundings which preserve a typical Thai ambience. Hua Hin is thus well suited for families or those who wish simply to escape the city bustle.
