About Hua Hin

While the beaches of Phuket and Koh Samui are more well-known to visitors for its white sands and clear water, Hua Hin has already been the favorite Thai resort for over 90 years, especially for the royal family. It is a delightful mix of attractions of a modern travel destination, sea with the charm and fascination, lively markets, tasty street eats and a fully functional infrastructure.

How to Get There:

Starting from Bangkok, you can take a minivan from the southern bus terminal with a cost of 180 BHAT. After almost 3 hours’ drive, you will alight at Central Hua Hin clock tower. From there, you can take a taxi which starts at 100 BHAT to go to any attractions.  Normally people will go for a one day tour which will take you to different attractions. It usually costs 1200 BHAT for two people.

Alternatively, there is a coach from the airport directly go to Hua Hin.
