How to get around

Getting to and from your Hua Hin holiday rental

As Hua Hin is only a 2.5-hour drive from Bangkok, it’s easy to get to the seaside paradise. International travellers typically fly into Bangkok’s international airport. One of the easiest ways to Hua Hin is by rail, as you can load up in Bangkok and arrive in the centre of Hua Hin, although it’s typically quicker by bus or taxi. For that reason, you might look into a car hire as there are many available in Bangkok or Hua Hin. If you’d rather enjoy a scenic water route, you can take a boat from Bangkok. One of the most popular, and frankly enjoyable, methods of transport throughout Hua Hin is in the back of a songthaew, which is a converted truck or scooter with comfortable bench seats. You can find many tuktuks or motorcycle taxis to transport you a short distance, and buses are available for convenient routes around town and the countryside.

Food & drink 

Experience the delicacies of Hua Hin from holiday homes

One of the most desirable aspects of a Hua Hin holiday is the delicious cuisine that you can experience at this Thai coastal paradise. No matter where you book your holiday home, you can be near high-end dining or cheap eats in the night market, both of which are great options, depending on your mood. Fresh seafood that’s freshly caught out of the bay of Thailand is a popular choice. Authentic pad thai is a must-have dish, although almost anything from a local restaurant is going to suit your fancy. You may want to try the barbecued crab legs smothered in butter or grilled clams. Better yet, you can enjoy squid accompanied by polenta, mushroom and sundried tomato.
