A favorite getaway for Bangkok residents, Hua Hin is a pretty beachside town. Family-friendly and relaxed, it lacks the all-night partying and seedier aspects that make other nearby beach resorts a haven for unsavory characters. Once a small fishing village, it
was transformed into a royal resort, and it’s these close links with Thai royalty that ensure Hua Hin won’t become overdeveloped or lose its small-town vibe.

1) Value for money

The weather in Hua Hin – made to enjoy all year round. Centrally located on a narrow peninsula the region is protected from the extreme weather conditions that can occur elsewhere in Thailand. Temperatures are consistent, varying from warm to hot. The average daily temperature in Hua Hin, Cha-Am, and Pranburi varies from a low of 25° Celsius in January to a high of 30° in April and May. As it’s a seaside town it benefits from cool sea breezes.
The best time of the year to visit is December through February when temperatures are relatively low and only occasional rain showers occur. In fact, the rain never lasts very long, and the skies clear within minutes afterward.
