0

Set up as a government-funded ‘deer research center’ Animal Park has a number of large deer enclosures and plenty of birds, many of which roam around the area.

Built during the reign of King Rama VI, and only a short distance from the centre 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.  Read More...

Going back to roots of the area, to pay a visit to Hua Hin's fishing pier will give you an insight into the city’s fishing trade. There's no charge to fish or to go on the pier but there is a checking station on the way out to ‘have your fish checked for health’ – which could mean a lot of things. This is a great spot to view the boats in the gulf and is really quite charming around sunset.  Read More...

Hua Hin Hills Vineyard is home to the award-winning Monsoon Valley label and a range of labels marketed as ‘new latitude wines’.

Covering an expansive 560 acres of verdant countryside, Hua Hin Hills is tucked away in a remote part of Hua Hin, about 36km from the town centre. It’s best to charter a song-taew and plan to spend at least half a day at the vineyard. You can combine the trip with a visit to Wat Huay Mongkol and Baan Silapin, both are en-route to Hua Hin Hills.

An important factor to be considered when visiting this national park is that road is in a bad condition therefore appropriate transport is needed. On the way up to it there are a series of limestone quarries leading up to a limestone mountain that has many caves within it. There are two important mountains called Kao Chaolai Yai and Kao Chomprasart that rise about 60-372 metres above sea level. Read More...

Khao Singto (Lion Island)

0

Located on the coast of Khao Takiab the name means ‘Lion Island’ due to the fact that from the air it resembles a crouching lion. The island is located about 10km from Hua Hin District and can be reached by taking a boat from Khao Takiab fishing village. Once there (roughly a 20-minute journey) most people enjoy soaking up the rays, sailing and fishing and for those who seek better acquaintance with Thailand’s marine life, snorkels can be rented. A round trip will last around five hours with the option of food for those who require it.

One of the biggest attractions in the province, Khao Takiab translates as ‘Chopstick Mountain’ although you may hear it being referred to as Monkey Mountain due to the monkeys that inhabit it. The mountain is home to a hilltop temple giving way to a sensational view of Hua Hin. The start of the hike up to the temple is marked by a large bell and a flight of stairs up to the main shrine, a pagoda-like structure. Read More...

Khao Tao

0

Be sure not to confuse Khao Tao (meaning mountain) with the island in the south of thailand. Koh Tao (‘koh’ meaning island). Situated 15 kilometres south of Khao Takiab, this fishing village remains largely untouched by the waves of modernity. The biggest attractions in the area are the secluded bay, Haad Sai Noi and the large Khao Tao Temple.

The temple is not something that will go unnoticed; it is difficult to ignore the huge golden Buddhas residing amid the hills, several caves and the shrine. Beside the temple is a gorgeous little fishing village where you can sit and enjoy a drink and a som tam in a local café.

One of the quintessential landmarks of Hua Hin, Klai Kang Won Palace is the summer residence of HM King Bhumibhol Adulyadej (Rama IX) and other members of the royal family.

Like so much in Hua Hin this summer seaside palace was built in the early 1920's during the reign of King Rama VI. It was designed by an Italian architect with lots of verandas, latticework and covered boardwalks using golden teak from the demolished Hat Chao Samran Palace. Read More...

Just 10 minute’s drive from Pranburi town, Pak Num Pran is blessed with endless miles of white sandy beach, this is the stretch of coast between Hua Hin and Chumphon. A fine family attraction, this beach has yet to make it onto the Thailand international tourist trail and is generally favoured by affluent Thais. For those who want to find a secluded beach this is, for the most, nearly always deserted and is also a great place to spot dolphins. Affectionately called the ‘Sunrise Coast’ if you are here during the early hours you can certainly see why. Read More...

Situated 23 kilometres from Pranburi, this cave is full of stalactites and stalagmites. Oil lamps can be rented at a nearby village for exploring the cave. These fairly recent discoveries are some of the most beautiful caves In Thailand. Bear in mind that there is only one entrance which is also the exit, and once inside the caves, movement is also restricted. The magnificent Phraya Nakhon Cave is one of the most mystical and mysterious landmarks of Thailand but only a few travellers 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 Read More...

Not just a themed open-air mall, Plearn Wan feels more like a living museum where you can experience a slice of life in 1950s Hua Hin. Plern Wan’s two-storey courtyard-style building, an architectural statement in itself, houses a community of period-style shops selling everything from liquor, inexpensive plastic and tin toys, snacks all the way to a beauty salon, photo studio, outdoor cinema screen and 20-room guesthouse or ‘Piman Plern Wan’.

Pranburi forest park is a project registered under the Queen’s patronage that seeks to protect the mangroves.

The plantlife is a combination of mixed forest and mangrove, which is incredibly beautiful and the Pranburi River runs through the park. Keep you eyes peeled for the animals that Read More...

Puek-Tian Beach

0

Situated 18 km north of Cha-Am this small beach resort town is famous for its statues in the sea depicting characters from one of Thailand’s most famous poets, Sunthon Phu. The much loved and revered poet created a piece of work Phra Aphai Mani which is 30,000 lines long! From humble beginnings he was educated at a temple and went on to write in a more simplistic style that was easily understood by the masses. This spot is very popular with Thai families who come here to appreciate the serene surroundings, the picnicking and to have fun in the sun.

Santorini Park brings a slice of the picture-perfect Greek island to Cha-Am. It’s got all the details right, from classic whitewashed buildings, colourfully painted windows, down to stone-paved paths and domed towers. An impressive lineup of shops, restaurants and an amusement park promise good times for everyone. This photogenic outdoor entertainment outlet occupies an expansive area just before the main highway reaches Cha-Am Beach. It’s quite an unusual sight, given the whitewash theme and architectural style that sets it apart from its surroundings. Cliff-top views of the ocean and a sweeping beachfront are the two missing elements that would otherwise make this place closer to the real thing.  Read More...

Khao Sam Roi Yot’s dramatic backdrop of endless limestone peaks festooned in lush greenery has inspired its name (Khao Sam Roi Yot means ‘the mountain with three hundred peaks’).

Statue of King Naresuan and Neranchararam temple

0

During the Ayutthaya period, King Naresuan the Great reined from 1590 to 1605 using Cha-Am as a meeting place before going to war with the Burmese in 1593. Situated in a little park that overlooks the sea, his statue is surrounded by cocks, the reason for this being that he was a cock-fighting enthusiast. A few metres further along from the statue on the left-hand side of the road is Neranchararam Temple. Here you can have a look at the six-armed Buddha image with each hand covering a sensory organ signifying the cutting off, or denying of the senses.

Tabtim Shrine

Set on a low hill, Tabtim Shrine offers spectacular panoramas of the Pranburi Estuary (Pak Nam Pran), the river and surrounding villages. The shrine features carved walls and columns in Chinese style, painted in bright colours. Inside, it houses Goddess Tabtim, Chinese Goddess of Good Weather, highly respected by Chinese fishermen. Legend has it that an old Chinese merchant came from China and built the shrine atop the hill. Local villagers have come to respect the Goddess, for her miraculous protective powers. Many of the local shop-houses in Pranburi Town feature Chinese script over their doors, implying a strong Chinese influence in the area.

Wat Nowkan

A small temple that is by no means the most magnificent within the area but nevertheless has an endearing format, especially if you visit at midday when the monks lead meditation classes with children. The immediate outside of the temple is pretty with a few weeping willows and attractive flowers.
