We stayed at Hua Hin Chaba Place when visiting Hua Hin. It’s about 2-3 kilometres from the centre. The hotel has the cool swimming pool with an airy atmosphere. The room rate includes a breakfast (fried rice, milk or bread). The staffs here are friendly. Next to the hotel is the 7eleven supermarket. There is a small market opposite to the hotel that sells grilled food at night.

Day 1 (Hanoi – Bangkok – Hua Hin)

We took the flight of Jetstar at 11 am and landed at 1 pm at Suvarnabhumi airport.

At first, we tended to buy the ticket directly from the airport to Hua Hin but there was only the trip at 6.30 pm, so we took the train to the Bangkok centre. The ticket to the last station (Phta Thai) of Airport Rail Link is 45 bahts. From there, we came to Victory Monument to take the minibus to Hua Hin. We arrived in Hua Hin at 5 pm. The bus stopped at Klai Kangwon Palace. We walked for 800 meters to the hotel located on street 56. We took a short nap then took a walk to the road near the beach with many restaurants. We had dinner at the crowded restaurant.

There are not many taxis in Hua Hin. The main transport is tuk-tuk. After the dinner, we took the tuk-tuk with the price of 50 bahts to come back the hotel. Before returning, we bought a pomelo wreath of a lovely street vendor for 20 baths.

Renting motorbike in Hua Hin

You can rent a motorbike for 200 bahts per day. You can easily rent on at the rental central or at the hotel where you stay.

Day 2: Hua Hin

The morning in the hotel was relaxed because there were many trees. After the breakfast, we walked to the Klai Kangwon where the King and Queen came to relax.

The architecture here is specific to Buddhist architecture in Thailand. Thai people revere the King, so King and Queen’s pictures are hung on every street. The palace entrance fee is 20 bahts per person.

Then we took the tuk-tuk to Hua Hin train station – the most famous destination in this city – an ideal place to take photos.

We walked along Soi 61 opposite to train station and came to McDonald to have fried potato and hamburger for lunch. The price was about 60-80 bahts.

In the afternoon, we walked to the beach. There are many souvenir shops here with interesting items that you can buy. I bought a wood box with Hua Hin Post Office picture for 100 bahts and animals grafted from shells for 5 bahts. Hua Hin beach is very clean. There is also taking the photo of cowboys style service.

In the evening, we came back the centre near the train station. The Chatsila night market located at Soi 72 was quite busy. We went around to enjoy grilled dishes with the price ranging from 20-40 bahts.

On the third day, we took the taxi to Cha Am (about 35 kilometres from Hua Hin centre) for 400 bahts heading to the sheep farm. This farm is very famous. The opening hours are from 9 am to 7 pm. The entrance fee is 120 bahts per person. This is an ideal place to take photos and relax.

We had lunch at a restaurant here. Then we took the minibus back to Bangkok for 160 bahts, ending the trip in Hua Hin.
