Overview, Hua Hin
An easy two and a half hour drive southwest from Bangkok puts you on the beach at Hua Hin, one of the most popular coastal destinations fronting the Gulf of Thailand.
Hua Hin, once a sleepy fishing village and the site of the Royal Family's summer palace (Klai Kang-won Palace), became a little-known weekend getaway for well-heeled Bangkok residents, until the international travel community discovered the charm and ambiance of this seaside town.
Now a healthy mix of foreigners and Thai vacationers enjoy the modern facilities, water sports, and sightseeing opportunities.
