Hua Hin, A Royal Treat on the Beach

Hua Hin has long been associated with Thai royalty and a favorite beach resort destination for decades.

The city of Hua Hin is fairly large, with a population of over 84,000, and is named after the row of rocks that line the bright white sand beach. Originally, the beach attracted a dislodged group of farmers and they settled there, naming the village Samore Riang, which means “rows of rocks.”

But the beach also attracted others over the ages, as King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) liked the beach so much, he had a summer palace built here. Today Hua Hin’s most important resident is His Majesty the King, and naval ships are often moored off the coast during his visits.

The town of Hua Hin also has a history in Western film, as the Railway Hotel (now a Sofitel) is the famous old building used as the Hotel Pnom Phen in the making of the film “The Killing Fields.”

Things To Do & See in Hua Hin

Hua Hin is literally a place to sit on a rock and watch the tide come in. The beach there is beautiful, and the main 5-kilometer stretch is the perfect place for snorkeling and swimming, as well as seafood eating and enjoying a cool drink under a cabana. But if you get bored just sitting about, try one of these excursions:

Visit the Hua Hin Railway Station, as its Thailand’s most beautiful. This wooden building used to house a royal pavilion in the Sanamchan Palace but was rebuilt at Hua Hin in 1968 as a transportation depot.

Take some photos from Hin Lek Fai Hill, which is located some 3 kilometers west of the central district and is a mountain some 160+ meters high. On top, you will find a public park with some great spots to capture the beach and surrounding area of Hau Hin below.

Take a hike to Pa La-u Waterfall, which is an eleven-tiered scenic waterfall located some 60 kilometers west of city center, and is surrounded within a yearlong verdant forest filled with exotic butterflies and birds.

If something a little on the strange side appeals, then a trip to the Spirit Houses of Brassiere Beach is in order, where there, according to legend, these spirit houses were built to appease the spirit of a fisherman’s daughter who was torn to pieces and had her breasts thrown into the surf. They say she was killed because she was too desirable, and to this day, the local villagers hang brassieres on their spirit houses and pray for good luck and calm seas.
