About Travel to Hua Hin
Hua Hin is a holiday town with just over 60,000 permanent residents. Hua Hin has a unique character with makes it different to other major tourist destinations in Thailand, such as Pattaya, Phuket and Koh Samui. One of the most obvious striking differences is the type of tourists Hua Hin tends to attract, the majority of whom are either older foreign visitors or Thai tourists taking a short break in Hua Hin, typically at the weekends and during public holidays.
Hua Hin has been a popular destination for Thai tourists since the 1920s when Thailand’s King built a holiday home in the area. By road you can get from Bangkok to Hua Hin in just over 3 hours making the town a convenient place to get away for the weekend. Hua Hin has lots of fish restaurants and this is a major draw for better off residents of Bangkok who come in large groups to eat seafood in the seafront restaurants of the Nares Damri Road in the centre of Hua Hin.
Hua Hin appeals to a lot of older foreign visitors because the town has great hotels and restaurants, but lacks a widespread culture of drinking in noisy bars until late in the evening. Hua Hin does have bars of all kinds, but not that many compared to places like Chaweng in Koh Samui or Patong in Phuket. The town has a much more sedate atmosphere with people enjoying the long town centre beach and relaxed evenings visiting Hua Hin’s night markets or long evening meals in the city’s reasonably priced restaurants and guest house dining rooms.
Hua Hin is also great for golfers with 12 high quality golf courses within a 60 minutes drive of the town centre.
