Hua Hin is one of Thailand’s most sought-after vacation destinations. The opening of Hua Hin Airport
gives travelers the option of flying in, although Hua Hin is only a three-hour drive from Bangkok.
The main beach area is Hua Hin Beach
, which features high-rise hotels and trendy resorts with bungalows and chalets on either side. Life on this beach couldn't be more relaxing. A bus from the waterfront links to a mountaintop temple with commanding views of the resorts in Cha am and Hua Hin as well as the surrounding countryside.
Hua Hin is becoming increasingly cosmopolitan and boasts first-rate restaurants and nightclubs. Tourists can follow lazy days on the beach with exciting nights on the dance floor.
As the resorts in Hua Hin continue to garner more international attention, savvy travelers have been moving on to quieter areas down the coast. Among these areas is the boutique resort district of Pranburi, a rising star among domestic tourists. For a complete escape from the city, travelers can head to Sam Roi Yot National Park
, where the scenery shifts between tangled mangrove forests, gorgeous beaches, and dense forests.
