Hua Hin Beach Prajuab Kirikhan Information Guide

Hua Hin Beach Prajuab Kirikhan Thailand

The beach at Hua Hin is unspectacular and the modem town undistinguished, but for many visitors, the beautiful bay and picturesque backdrop of green hills make this a fine place to relax for a few days.

Early risers can watch fisher men set sail from the northern piers, then walk six km south to a pair of limestone hills for ex cellent views over the arching bay. Khao Takiab ("Chopstick Hill") can also be reached by motorcycte. Below Khao Takiab is Wat Khao Lad, a Buddhist temple with a 20 -meter alabaster Buddha image. Two km west of Khao Takiab lies Khao Krilas ("Spirit Mountain"), a mystical site festooned with over 200 spirit houses, holy relics, and miniature chedis.

During the day there's little to do but relax, read a book, wander around the beach, and perhaps visit the quaint burgundy-and-cream building next to the train station which once served as the private waiting room for Thai royalty.

Pilots might investigate the local flying school, which provides English -language training and awards pilot's licenses for about $3000. More information on local attractions, tours, and transportation is available from the municipal tourist office on Damnern Kasern Road.
