Luxury Holidays to Hua Hin with Elegant Resorts
The coastal resort of Hua Hin is the oldest and probably most traditional Thai resort, successfully combining the charms of yesteryear with modern day facilities. Situated 200km south west of Bangkok, this stunning resort has long been the holiday destination for Thailand’s elite. With its beautiful powdery sand beach, numerous seafood restaurants, a lively night market and some of the country’s renowned golf courses, Hua Hin is a popular destination with both couples and families. Hua Hin can trace its aristocratic roots back to the 1920s when Rama VI (King Vajiravudh) and Rama VII (King Prajadhipok) built their summer residences here which along with the construction of the southern railway made it a popular getaway for Bangkok’s residents and Thai nobility. Situated a mere three kilometres north of the town, the poetically named, Phra Ratchawang Klai Kangwon (Far from Worries Palace), is still a royal residence today.
