Hua Hin Area Guide

The Land of Smiles
“Visitors are greeted at the airport with a sign saying ‘Welcome to the Land of Smiles’ – and it’s not just because of the friendly locals. From the azure blue of the sea and dazzling white of the sandy beaches to the verdant green of the jungle and gleaming gold of the temples, the colours of Thailand are dazzling.”

LET'S GO

Hua Hin is the most popular expat destination in Western Thailand. Just a two and a half drive from Bangkok, this coastal city has a laid-back, easygoing feel. Known for its dry climate compared to the rest of the country, Hua Hin is a charming, cosmopolitan beach resort.



There are lively markets, beautiful long sandy beaches, and modern amenities. What this community lacks in man-made entertainment and trendy shopping malls, it makes up for in natural beauty and traditional food stalls and shops.
