Hua Hin

Hua Hin was Thailand's first beach resort. Its rail connection to Bangkok, completed in 1911, made the 118 mile journey a seaside excursion.
It is still a quiet, economical place to get away from it all.
There is 5km of beaches, small shops, and International restaurants. Although there are accommodations for everyone here. Most still stay in the small inns and guesthouses west of the beach.

    Dolphin Bay is very nice. Hua Hin seems to be busier every time we go down !

    Beautiful temples and shrines! A canal trip along the Khlong Khao Daeng sounds very relaxing for me. Wat Thammikaram on a mountain looks great. I hope to go there someday.

    Excuse me! These "rice steamers" are actually rubbish bins! And the tall-looking "spirit house" is a crematorium!

    A very complete page here about Hua Hin. I was only driving through here - too many big hotels and high houses here for me, but you make the place look beautiful :-). BTW, I don't think these things are cookers but garbage bins?

    I share your fascination with the architecture of the Temples, Wats & SHrines. The Hill-top Palace is wonderful. Spirit House with the tall tower reaching up to the gods was interesting!
