Welcome To Travel Family Vacations in Hua Hin
We have lived in Thailand for over ten years now. Hua Hin is one of our favorite destinations for a family holiday. Located 175 miles (281 km) south of Bangkok , Hua Hin, which literally means “stone head” in Thai, is the oldest beach resort of the country and is still a popular beach destination for family holidays. White sand, clear water and the perfect Hua Hin weather has continued to attract both local and international tourists in search of peaceful and relaxing holidays.
The town was originally known as Ban Samoe Rieng, or Ban Laem Hin ( Stony Point Village ). The construction of a railway station in the city as part of the Railroad project (King Rama VI) makes Hua Hin stand out from other quiet fishing villages. In addition, the construction of a Teakwood Palace of King Rama VII totally transformed Hua Hin into a high-society resort town for royalty. Even today, the Royal Family continues to reside at the Palace for part of the year.
Today, Hua Hin is a well-established beach destination with the best facilities coupled with a true sense of Thai hospitality. Despite its expansive growth and development as a luxurious destination, the splendor of Hua Hin remains intact. Hua Hin has continued to provide a peaceful and relaxed sanctuary in a picturesque environment that comes with a true sense of historical identity. In recent years, Hua Hin has developed to become the prime location of many world-class spa resorts.
Hua Hin has a 3 mile (5-km) white sandy beach lined with a wide range of accommodations, from bungalows to five-star resorts. While offering a tranquil atmosphere, the beach is also the place for fun-filled activities ranging from jogging, walking, sun bathing, horse riding, kite boarding, and various kinds of watersports.
Hua Hin is still a popular destination for Bangkok residents and for our family as well. It has much to offer as a beach resort and yet still retains the small town feel. The Gulf of Thailand has a very mild surf which makes it ideal for small children. However, if you have teenagers looking for an adventurous beach vacation, then Krabi or Phuket may be a better choice for your family beach vacation.
Hua Hin is a small town when compared to Bangkok. It is easy to learn your way around the town and you might even make friends with some of the local people. We have spent many family holidays in Hua Hin and plan to go back again. More Huahin Information
Although Hua Hin is a small town, it is long and narrow. Therefore, it is too far to walk from one end to the other in the heat of Southern Thailand. Don't worry, there are many forms of transportation for getting around Hua Hin.
Whether you prefer to travel by plane, train, or automobile; your family can go to Huahin anyway you choose. Although, flights to Huahin are rather limited, it is very easy to take a bus to Huahin. Its close proximity to Bangkok means a road trip to Hua Hin lasts only three hours.
If your family is like mine, you are planning a family holiday in Hua Hin because you want to spend time on the beach. Hua Hin does have some fabulous beaches, especially for families with younger children. But if you tire of relaxing on the beach ( I guess it may happen to some people), there are plenty of other activities which will keep your family entertained.
Hua Hin golfing is second to none in Thailand. There are several championship courses just waiting to be played. The adrenaline junkies in your family will have a thrill on the go karts in Huahin. A trek up the Pala-U waterfall is a fun-filled way to spend part of a day in one of Thailand's nature preserves. Although the beach is the main reason people flock to Huahin, there are other Hua Hin attractions beside the surf and seafood.
Hua Hin is a small town but it is growing which means new resorts are being built. There are plenty of low cost resorts and even home rentals which provide good accomodations for families. We enjoy staying the Takiab Beach area and there are several good Takiab Beach Hotels. There are many fine Huahin city hotels and guesthouses as well. The oldest and nicest resort in Hua Hin is the Sofitel, located right in the middle of town.
