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.
