Welcome to Hua Hin and Cha am

Travel to a region of opulence and authenticity boasting beautiful beaches, magnificent resorts and exciting activities.

Hua Hin lies on the east coast of Thailand in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province just to the south of the Thai capital, Bangkok.  


Hua Hin has already been the favourite Thai resort for over 70 years. It was discovered in the early 1920s by King Rama VII as an ideal getaway from stifling Bangkok. His Klai Kangwon (Far From Worries) Palace still remains as an official royal residence. It is still frequently used by members of the royal family and is open to the public for visits.  


In more recent years the number of international hotels has increased as Hua Hin has emerged as one of Thailand's most popular destinations amongst domestic and international visitors. You will be spoiled with slick hotels, top seafood restaurants and, of course, the knowledge that you are sharing a truly royal resort with the country's royal family.


But despite this modernisation Hua Hin still clings to the beachside atmosphere that first attracted royalty back in the ‘20s. In comparison to Pattaya, the other main beach destination near Bangkok, Hua Hin is quite tranquil, and is a favourite with families and older travellers.


There are no party-hard places here. Instead you can fill your days enjoying golf, horse riding, water sports and of course the stunning beach. When the sun goes down there’s an international restaurant scene to explore, rustic seafood restaurants on the pier to visit, or the simple culinary charms of one of Thailand’s best night markets to sample.


The city’s 5km of beaches are very clean, swimming is safe, and Hua Hin continues to enjoy some of the peninsula’s driest weather.  


The average daily temperature is fairly consistent throughout the year at around 30°C. The rainy season is from October to November and the hottest time of year is between April and May, with temperatures reaching 33°C which can be humid at times. Normally, the best time to visit is between December and February when the temperature is warm and rain showers infrequent. But whichever way you look at it Hua Hin is beautiful year-round.


The average monthly temperatures are:











































If you love to browse and haggle you’ll be in your element here. There are a number of informal stalls in and around the beaches. If you are after something a bit special head for the Naresdamri area for fine bespoke tailoring – but shop around, prices can vary considerably.


The night market in the center of the town is a must. It runs daily from 6 pm and is great for hawker food, clothing, wooden elephants, and trinkets. However, it is quite touristy so prices may be higher here than in other markets.


On the same site is the Chat Chai day market which sells fruit, vegetables, fish, and meat. The weekend market at the Grand Hotel is always worth a browse (Thursday to Sunday from 5 pm) for clothing, plants, pets, books, toys, and tropical fish.


Finally, there is the Pae Mai Tuesday market (near the railway) where you can pick up fresh produce, clothing, electrical goods, tools, and household items.


Hua Hin Market Village is the town’s first major shopping mall. Situated 2km south of the center of town it houses fashion outlets, a food court, and local shops and stalls. There are recognizable names such as Tesco Lotus, Boots, KFC, and Starbucks plus bowling alleys and a cinema.

Health & Safety

Do not drink the tap water in Hua Hin or wash food in it, or clean your teeth. Only use bottled water which is inexpensive and widely available. Don’t have ice in your drinks and avoid eating fruit and vegetables that are unwashed or sold unpeeled. 


Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. The medical facilities are good but you are strongly advised to take out comprehensive medical insurance before traveling. You should also check with your GP before traveling for up to date immunization information.


You should exercise the usual precautions with your valuables especially in crowded areas and never leave your belongings unattended on the beach.
