Accommodations in Hua Hin

In Hua Hin, the cheapest guesthouses are located on Naresdamri Road part along the sea, Poonsuk Road and surrounding streets. If you choose to sleep in this area you will not be far from the beach and restaurants and the liveliest bars in the city. Those seeking for a little less tourists will probably prefer staying in Khao Takhiap. There are also some small hotels and guest houses at low prices.

How to get around in Hua Hin ?

Generally you can go from your hotel or guesthouse to the nearest beach by walking. But you will need transport to go to Hua Hin night or floating markets or Wat Huay Mongkhon or Khao Takiab or the bus terminal. White songthaews go to the two floating markets and Wat Huay Mongkhon, green songthaews go to Khao Takiab, both pass the largest night market and Hua Hin Market Village shopping mall. Recently another songthaew service appeared and tours around the city.
To go to the nearby towns of Cha Am, Phetchaburi or Pranburi, you can take the red local buses that leave every half hour. Many private taxis also offer their services everywhere in the city but not for short trips. They can take you to Bangkok airport (but there is a VIP bus going there too) or Pattaya for example. Their prices are quite high. YOu can also try to use GRAB application (similar to Uber but there is more Uber in Thailand) which is now available in Hua Hin.

Must-visits in Hua Hin

Khao Takiap

My opinion :
green hill at the edge of a long beach with a temple at the top and a large standing Buddha. There is also a small fishing harbor.

Sam Pan Nam Floating Market

My opinion :
This is certainly the most friendly and the busiest of the two floating markets in Hua Hin. It is located only 2 km after the first one

Tamarind Market

My opinion :
A little after the Cicada Market, this other Hua Hin night market is open exactly the same evenings. It is almost entirely dedicated to food and drinks. It's personally my favorite weekend night market in Hua Hin.
