Hua Hin Holidays

Former royal retreat

Offering a cocktail of city and sea, Hua Hin is Thailand’s original beach resort, full of lively markets, paradise sands and world class golf courses.

This cosy corner of Thailand is where the Thai royal family regularly choose to holiday during the warmer months, and is also where the delicious Thai wine originates. Hua Hin has something to suit every traveller: whether you’re a keen golfer, a sun worshipper or a culture vulture. Each year, the jazz festival takes place here, and the Hua Hin railway station is a particular highlight with its beautiful architecture and intricate wooden paintings. 

Bangkok is the perfect city to combine with a visit to Hua Hin, as it’s just a few hours’ drive away. Or, why not visit neighbouring Cha-Am; smaller in size but with a great, laidback beach vibe and fantastic markets.

Top Tips from our Experts

Barbara

Destination Specialist

"A visit to Phraya Nakhon Cave is a must do when in Hua Hin. If you can, make sure you are there for 10am, this is when the suns rays highlight the hidden pavilion - an amazing photo opportunity"

Gina

Destination Specialist

"Vana Nava Water Jungle is Thailands biggest waterpark - and it just a few minutes from Hua Hin. Its a fun day out for kids of all ages. Dont take a picnic with you - as no food and drink is permitted to be brought in, but prices are very reasonable."

Melissa

"Cicanda night market is on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. There is every type of food you can imagine - music, dancing and theatre shows, and a really varied selection of stalls and art exhibitions."
