What to see in Hua Hin

Besides its very typical train station, Hua Hin city offers very few places to visit. However Khao Takiap worths to have a look. Multiple night markets and floating markets are also good places to spend evenings between shopping and eating cheap meals.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Hua Hin or from Hua Hin. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Hua Hin

Khao Takiap Hua Hin

Khao Takiap

เขาตะเกียบ
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 Hua Hin

Sam Pan Nam Floating Market

ตลาดน้ำหัวหินสามพันนาม
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
Khao Sam Roi Yod National Park Hua Hin

Khao Sam Roi Yod National Park

เขาสามร้อยยอด
My opinion :
Located at the edge of the sea with numerous caves including the very photogenic Phraya Nakhon Cave with its little royal pavilion lighted by a ray of sun comming from the opening at the top. The park is about sixty kilometers from Hua Hin and Prachuap Khiri Khan, thirty from Pranburi and a dozen kilometers from Kuiburi. There are a few accommodation options in the park.
Phraya Nakhon Cave Hua Hin

Phraya Nakhon Cave

ถำพระยานคร
My opinion :
It is the highlight of any visit to the Sam Roi Yod National Park. This beautiful cave hosts a small Royal Pavilion which is often illuminated by a ray of light coming from the opening at the top of the cave. A relaxing and very photogenic place which is also the emblem of the province.
Tamarind Market Hua Hin

Tamarind Market

ตลาดแทมมาริน
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.

Other visits suggestions in Hua Hin

  • The sand beach
    several kilometers long, it is very nice although the water is often choppy. You can also sunbath or ride a horse for a few hundred baht.
  • Wat Khao Lad, monkey temple
    On the top of a little mountain, this temple offers a beautiful view of the area. The monkeys living there are off course the attraction of Wat Khao Lad
