Hua Hin – Royal Resort Attracts Local and Foreign Tourists
Location: Idyllic Town on the Malay Peninsula
Located on the Malay Peninsula, this resort town is one of eight districts in the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. The town is easily accessible by a highway that connects to Petchburi and the rest of the Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. It is also on the southern rail route that begins in Bangkok and links to Malaysia. International air service is with Kuala Lumpur-Subang Airport or Bangkok International Airport, and domestic air service is with Hua Hun Airport.
Culture: Traditional Thai Culture Delights Visitors
Unlike many Thailand resort towns, Hua Hin retains its traditional culture and charm as a small fishing village. The Nightly Street Market is the perfect opportunity to shop and enjoy native-style seafood cooked right in front of visitors, as well as witness what life is like for locals. The Takiap Hill has a beautiful Buddhist temple that offers a great view of the surrounding area. The Spirit Houses of Brassiere Beach are part of Thai folklore, which were created to appease the spirit of a fisherman's daughter who was killed because too many men desired her.
Activities: Enjoy Golfing, Hiking, and Water Sports
In addition to water sports on the beach, visitors can enjoy many other active outdoor activities, including gold and hiking. The resort town features one of the best 18-hole golf courses in Thailand. There are beautiful caves and waterfalls in which to walk and experience the lovely picturesque landscape, as well as national parks nearby perfect for hiking. The hills also offer lovely hikes with amazing vistas of the surrounding areas. The Pa La-u Waterfall is an 11-tier waterfall located about 60 kilometers from the city amidst a beautiful forest filled with butterflies and birds.
