A holiday home among the fishing folk of Hua Hin

Hua Hin, an old fishing community approximately 200 kms south of Bangkok, has managed to retain its old charm while catering to the needs of the tourist trade. It first became popular among Bangkok’s wealthy in the 1920s following the construction of a railway along the coast. They built holiday homes from home to escape the rigours of the city. Nowadays, its friendly people play host to visitors of all nationalities who come to enjoy terrific holiday accommodation and superb amenities in this little piece of Thailand which has managed to adhere to its fishing traditions.

The sights and sounds of Hua Hin

Hua Hin’s beautiful sandy beaches offer the perfect beach holiday. Watersports abound; the clear warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand are ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving while charter boats cater to the desires of the game fisherman. In addition, there are several international standard courses for the golf addict in the family.

The local market is an experience not to be missed, while the shops cater to every taste. Particularly popular are the tailor shops that will put together and a hand-made suit, trousers or dress to your requirements within a couple of days. Many visitors are unable to resist picking up bunches of aromatic herbs and exotic spices from stalls with heady aromas to try some Thai cooking of their own back in their holiday home.

For the night owl, Hua Hin has a number of lively nightspots, including discos and bars all within easy reach either on foot or by taxi or songthaew.

Hua Hin’s natural and beautiful attractions

Not far from Hua Hin lies Cha Am which boasts the longest beach in Thailand. A relatively unspoilt resort area, Cha Am has a few shops and is home to Cha Am Golf, which has a course designed by Jack Nicklaus. A little further south, around 50 kms from Hua Hin, is the Khao Sam Roi Yot. Roughtly translated as “three hundred mountain peaks”, Kaho Sam Roi Yot has savannah-type plains and steep limestone cliffs with caves. It is a wonderful place for watching wildlife and from the Park you can even watch Irrawaddy dolphins as they move up the coast. Visitors must make the trip to the spectacular sixteen stage Pala U waterfall 60 kms to the west in the lush jungle. Take a dip in the cool waters or watch the swarms of butterflies as gibbons leap around in the trees making their deafening calls.

The weather in Hua Hin

For those used to a temperate climate, it is best to visit Hua Hin during the winter months from December to April when the temperatures are around 31?C. This is also the dry season, although it is possible to encounter the odd shower. From April onwards, as you move into the wet season, temperatures rise to around 35?C.

Getting to Hua Hin

Most visitors to Hua Hin will fly into Bangkok’s Suuvarnabhumi International Airport. From there it is necessary to transfer to a bus or train for the journey to the south.

Alternatively, it is possible to hire a self-drive car at the airport and make your own way to your holiday rental while for those who prefer to save time and can afford a little more, private charter flights from Bangkok to Hua Hin’s domestic airport are also available.

We enjoyed our stay at this villa. Host was prompt with all queries before and during the stay and provided water for a day that electric and water were off. He provided good directions to the area and was on hand for any queries. The villa is beautifully furnished and well stocked with kitchenware and basic necessities. Location is about 30 min drive from the centre of Hua Hin so you do need a vehicle. Pluses: Lovely little pool with jacuzzi, uses salt water cleanser so no harsh chemicals. BBQ and seated area outside really nice. Lovely bedrooms with generous storage. Bedding and towels all clean and generous. Driveway for safe car storage. Really quiet location away from hustle and bustle. Only issues I could see for renters were the low water pressure in showers (which Philip explained is common in this area) and dogs in outside area leading to property (again I don't think this is something that can be stopped and there are stray dogs on this road so we did not walk it). Advice for guests: Pool has quite sharp little stones on steps and edge, which grazed my daughter -- for kids make sure they have jelly shoes. Outside area also quite a lot of mossies, ensure you bring spray. Philip kindly provided mossie coils. TV system uses an app - which we didn't really rate, if you have a netflix account or similar I suggest you bring the login for it, as it is a nice usable TV. He does also provide a great selection of DVDs. All in all a good stay -- especially great if you come from a big city and you are looking for some peace and quiet. Many thanks Philip.
