    Hua Hin Must-see Attractions

    Most Thais envisage Hua Hin as a romantic and elegant gateway holiday destination. This notion started off about 100 years ago when the Royal Family members and the well-to-do people would spend their summers there and as a result Hua Hin now has countless lovely seaside houses, villas and a few attractive vintage summer palaces.

    Hua Hin is usually full of people taking a break from Bangkok at weekends and as it’s just a short drive away its popularity has remained. Much of Hua Hin’s attraction lies in the town’s charming old-world feel, best illustrated in Hua Hin Railway Station and the Maruekhathaiyawan Palace.

  • Built during the reign of King Rama VI, and only a short distance from the centre of town, Hua Hin's railway station and adjacent royal waiting room are undeniably attractive. The brightly painted wooden buildings that are Thai in concept and design somehow manage to have a 'Victorian' feel to them. Even if you don't arrive at the resort by train, go and have a look. It’s charming, quirky and photogenic. Read More...
