Hua Hin City

Wat Khao Takiab Hua Hin

Located on the sunrise side of the Gulf of Thailand. Hua Hin lies some 200 kilometres or a three-hour drive southwest of Bangkok. Adding distinction to Hua Hin’s coastal setting, is its status as Thailand’s most traditional beach resort.

It was here, in the 1920s, that King Rama VII built a summer palace, thus creating a vogue among high society for Hua Hin to become the favourite retreat from Bangkok’s summer heat. Today, the present Royal Family continues to reside at Hua Hin for part of the year.

Hua Hin is similarly noted for its magnificent beach, running from a rocky headland, which separates it from a tiny fishing port, and curving gently for some three kilometres to its southern point where Buddhist temples cling to the cliffs.
