One of Thailand’s oldest resorts, Hua Hin was discovered in the early 1920s by King Rama VII and soon became a firm favourite of the Royal family and Thailand’s upper-class. The tranquil fishing village provided an ideal getaway from the balmy metropolis of Bangkok with a perfect 5 mile long beach and fantastic local seafood and hua hin golf. Many of Bangkok’s influential elite built their own beachfront summer homes along the curving sandy bay, contributing to the resorts’ unique identity.

While Hua Hin still remains a royal and high society favourite, this traditional Thai resort has developed over recent years, combining the attractions of a modern holiday destination with local charm. Unlike some of Thailand’s other resorts, Hua Hin has avoided the hectic development based largely on tourist dollars and the town still has a flourishing fishing port and maintains an old world charm. Easy access from Bangkok by train has ensured Hua Hin’s growth with Thais as well as foreign tourists coming in increasing numbers. It’s a place to relax, take a stroll, eat great seafood and chill out.
