Hua Hin Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
Hua Hin is a seaside resort town in Thailand. Located approximately 200 kms south of Bangkok, in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula, the town of Hua Hin is situated in Hua Hin District, one of eight in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province.
Hua Hin has an area of 86 sq kms, and features a 5 km beach along the Gulf of Thailand’s west coast. To its north is the famous beach resort town of Cha Am, part of Phetchaburi province, which houses Thailand’s only American university.
In 1834, Hua Hin was named Samore Riang, meaning rows of rocks, by farmers who moved southward and settled there after leaving Phetchaburi Province due to an agricultural drought. In the 1920s, King Rama VII discovered Hua Hin as an ideal getaway, building a summer palace which now acts as full time residence to His Majesty the King of Thailand. With a railroad being built nearby, Hua Hin soon turned from a tranquil fishing village to a luxury seaside resort, attracting the nobility and upper class of Siam.
Today, Hua Hin tries to maintain its quiet atmosphere, in spite of its rapid development of hotels, restaurants, and condominiums. Although slowly developing into one of Thailand’s cosmopolitan cities, Hua Hin still remains more serene than Pattaya, a beach resort found on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, and is also more ideal for families on trips to Thailand
Hua Hin not only offers a long sandy beach with clear waters, but also first class golf courses, various gardens, waterfalls, a national park, surrounding hills, water sports, horseback riding, and shopping.
Hua Hin is the oldest and most traditional Thai resort. Featuring various festivals, (including the newly launched Hua Hin Film Festival), and being a short distance from Thailand’s bustling capital, the town of Hua Hin is very popular with Bangkok residents, ex pats, and tourists on Thailand tours.
