Hua Hin Night Market

Situated in the center of Hua Hin between the Petchkasem Road and the railway line, the market takes over an entire street and comes to life from 18:30 onwards, when traders line the street with their stalls selling various apparel, crafts, art, and tasty street food. The night market also boasts a superb selection of seafood restaurants that line both sides of the road, popular with visitors and locals alike, feasting on the best freshly caught fish, crab and lobster. From experience, we can recommend that Khaimuk, Rod Yai and Ko Seafood are all worthy choices with excellent food coming in wholesome portions.

Khao Takiab Beach

Khao Takiab or Chopstick Hill lies just 7 kilometers to the south of Hua Hin. What was once a quiet fishing village has in recent years witnessed increased tourism development, with international hotels and apartment complexes springing up along the road that runs through the village. Despite this, it’s still considerably less developed than Hua Hin. It remains a popular destination with tourists and Thais, and there is always a large influx of visitors at the weekends. The focal point at one end of the village is the hill itself (sometimes called Monkey Mountain because hundreds of mischievous macaque monkeys have overrun the place), and the long sandy beach which runs for several kilometers further south.

Khao Takiab beach is a picturesque sandy stretch that gently curves from behind the mountain all the way to Suan Son Pradiphat beach a few kilometers further south. Dominated on the northern side by the hill, it’s quiet and usually less busy than the beach in Hua Hin. The sand is clean and pebbly in places, and at low tide there is a wide expanse to reach the water which is very shallow and slopes gently.

Hua Hin Train Station

Built during the reign of King Rama VI, and only a short distance from the center 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. The story about the birth of Hua Hin as a royal seaside getaway town would be incomplete without a mention of this historic railway station. Back in the early days, there was no road access to this idyllic beach town, and train travel was a new and delightful alternative to get from Bangkok to Hua Hin instead of by boat.

With the train station in place and the northern-southern rail line connecting Bangkok and as far south as Singapore in 1921, the town was gradually built around it. European expatriates would travel from Penang and Singapore to enjoy a seaside vacation in Hua Hin.

Golden Buddhist Pavilion at Phraya Nakhon Cave

An Amazing Temple Inside a Hidden Cave Near Hua Hin. The magnificent Phraya Nakhon Cave is one of the most mystical and mysterious landmarks of Thailand but only a few travelers get a chance to take a picture of it. The reason is simple: this gold and green pavilion is hidden inside a hard to reach cave and only a handful of dedicated visitors will do the effort to visit it. Those who do are rewarded with a stunning vision that looks like it's straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. Phraya Nakhon Cave is located in the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, a 45 minutes’ drive south of Hua Hin. First step to reach the cave is to drive to the small village of Bang Pu located by the beach, and from there decide if you'd rather rent a boat to take you around the cape to Laem Sala beach, or walk a 30 minutes trek above the hill leading to the same Laem Sala beach. Since the boat ride only costs 150 to 200 baht per person and considering that you still will have to climb 430 m of uneven and steep steps we recommend you save your energy and take this short ride to the cave. You can also combine a boat trip to the cave with Monkey Island.
