About Hua Hin, Thailand
Looking for activities once your private jet arrives in Hua Hin? Hua Hin is a seaside resort town in Prachuap Khiri Khan, south of Thailand. Now a fashionable escape for Bangkok residents, it was once a serene fishing village. Seafood eateries, high-end hotels, and upscale tourists now fill up the popular stretch of sand along the beach. Hua Hin is also famously known as the home to the King Bhumibol’s Summer Palace.
Popular Destinations in Hua Hin
With tourism having a major influence on the economy, it’s only natural that Hua Hin has many attractions concentrated in the downtown area as well as within its outskirts. Here are some of the popular attractions:
Santorini Park Cha-Am: Five themed ‘zones’ make up this all-encompassing amusement park. Village architecture of the Greek islands is apparent within the Village Zone. The real “amusement” part of the park can be found in the Park Zone. Attractions including a climbing wall as well as interactive games attract some individuals, while rides such as a giant swing, a reverse bungee, the double-decker carousel, and a 40-meter high Ferris wheel are a better fit for the thrill seekers. Luxury salons, quaint cafés, and places to grab a bite to eat are also available nearby.
Phraya Nakhon Cave: Travelers seeking a once in a lifetime photo opportunity may have to go the extra mile to visit one of Thailand’s most mysterious and mystical landmarks. A visit to the Phraya Nakhon caves takes a little effort, but the Indiana Jones setting is quite rewarding. Both stunning and unique, this experience can be combined with the Monkey Island boat trip for those seeking even more adventure. Combining both activities into one will amount to an all-day affair, so stamina and proper preparation are necessary.
Hua Hin Night Market: Because Hua Hin is home to the King’s Summer Palace, nightlife options are somewhat limited here, at least when compared to some other seaside resort towns like Pattaya. Still, those looking for evening activities might visit Hua Hin Night Market. With hundreds of eateries spanning from traditional Thai food to modern Italian cuisine, visitors have quite the option. Travelers can also buy local handicrafts as well as other items to take home from this market.
Hua Hin Railway Station: Although locomotive aficionados will certainly appreciate it, this attraction is more than just trains. The brightly painted, wooden buildings, bring a Victorian vibe to this Thai neighborhood. This is a refreshing contrast to the modern outdoor malls and hotel buildings. Visitors with even more time to spare can enjoy a historic journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin.
Black Mountain Water Park: A mountain landscape sets the scene for this collection of water-themed rides and attractions. It includes a kiddie pool, a beach pool, a lazy river, a wave pool, and nine different water slides. Other activities to take advantage of include the spa fountain and pool, as well as the swim-up bar. Additionally, there is a restaurant on-site serving both Western and Asian fare. The water park is located directly across from another attraction – Black Mountain Golf Course – managed and operated by the same company.
Plearn Wan: For those who want to catch a glimpse of Hua Hin in the 1960s era, the Plearn Wan shopping market is a great place to explore. There is a wide array of traditional Thai food offered here, as well as shops selling vintage merchandise. This area provides a walk down memory lane for visitors traveling from both near and far.
