Hua Hin is a seaside resort city in the Gulf of Thailand. Once a quiet fishing village, it grew into a fashionable escape for residents of Bangkok after the 1920s, when the Thai royal family built their summer palaces here.
As a royal residential coastal city, Hua Hin earns its status as a well-organized and low crime area.
