Hua Hin is a seaside resort which is popular among both Thai nationals as well as tourists. What was once the royal family's beach getaway is fast becoming a relaxing place to escape Bangkok's city hustle and bustle.
Hua Hin is widely known as the original Thai beach getaway. Since gaining the stamp of approval from the royal Thai family, many local tourists and foreigners come to this city to experience laid-back Thai vibes and stay away from the madness of 'touristy Bangkok. Being an active fishing port, the city has an old world charm to it with the modern facilities of a tourist destination. Golf is one of the activities this city is well known for but not advertised. The Klai Kangwon (Far From Worries) Palace built by King Rama VII (also knows as King Prajadhipok) is a destination in itself for those coming to the city.
