  • Hua Hin Information
  • Hua Hin  is a famous beach resort town in Thailand, in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula, some 200 km south of Bangkok. It has a population of 84,883 in an area of 911 km², and is one of eight districts (Amphoe) of the Prachuap Kerekhan Provice

    Hua Hin is located approx. 230 km south of Bangkok and 92 kilometres north of Prachuab Khiri Khan, its provincial chief town and it is a coastal, well known resort town, set on the west coast of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin has a population of around 60,000 people, the King of Thailand has his summer palace Klai Kang Won (Far from Worries) adjoining the beach.
    Hua Hin is closely associated with the Thai royalty. Merely 25 kilometers apart, Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province enjoys a wealth of satellite attractions; prominent among them are national parks and historical cities.

    Hua Hin Town is on the coast of Hua Hin District. With an area around 86.36 km², the town has 50,169 inhabitants. It is a popular beach resort getaway for Bangkok residents. The Railway Hotel. now more generally known as The Sofitel Hotel, is a famous old building which was used as The Hotel Pnom Phen in the film "The Killing Fields".
    Hua Hin well-known for its spectacular sunrises, Hua Hin’s main beach is a 4km white, sandy strip that fringe the Gulf of Thailand, and stretches from the town centre to Khao Takiap. As a result it is never over-crowded, and lots of family-friendly activities are on offer – the likes of pony rides, banana boat rides, or rent deckchairs and umbrellas for a few lazy hours of sun-worshipping in between testing the water with your big toe. The town’s name – meaning ‘stone head’ – is derived from the rock formations that can be seen towards the end of the main beach. Other than that it is a sandy beach with a sandy sea bed, making it ideal for swimming.

    One of the most popular pastimes on the beach is to take a long stroll – or even a jog, if you’re so inclined – along the seashore. Further south, behind Khao Takiap, lies Suan Son Beach, named after the many pine trees found along the beach. It’s even more isolated than Hua Hin Beach, mostly frequented by guests staying at nearby hotels and some locals. The main emphasis at Hua Hin’s beaches is on rest and relaxation, and they do not have the crowds often found on Thailand’s popular beaches. Water-skiing, jet ski, windsurfing and parasailing are other popular beach activities, but in no way disrupt the overall peace and tranquility of these beaches. And since you’re in Thailand, chances are good that you’ll find an ‘al fresco’ massage shop somewhere on a beach. 

    Hua Hin has one of the lowest rain falls in Thailand and being a coastal town gets that lovely sea breeze, so can be visited all year round. There are three seasons, the dry season (March-September), the rainy season (October - November) and the warm season (November-February). One of the lowest rainfalls of any beach area. Weather is hot but refreshed by a cooling sea breeze. Most days offer clear blue skies and sometimes billowing white clouds. Hua Hin was chosen as the Royal resort due to the excellent weather and climate.
