About Hua Hin

The seaside town of Hua Hin is a beautiful, peaceful town far from the hustle and bustle of the city. Since the 1920s, it has been a vacation destination for the Thai royal family, locals and tourists alike. This city feels more like peaceful Chiang Mai than the metropolitan Bangkok and Phuket, with its groves of swaying coconut trees and beaches kissed by quietly lapping waves. The architecture here is unique, including Maruekhathaiyawan Palace, the blue and white Santorini Park, retro Hua Hin Railway Station and more, each of which has its own style and is a must-see for any visitor. Additionally, the city offers delicious seafood and a lively, fascinating nightlife that is a favorite among tourists.

Historical Architecture
Hua Hin Railway Station was built in 1911 during the reign of Rama VI. It is one of Thailand’s oldest train stations. One of Thailand's iconic railway stations, with distinctive tropical flair, construction of the station led to the development of Hua Hin. It allowed visitors to travel from Bangkok by train instead of by boat, and even brought visitors from as far south as Singapore. Because of its historical status and significance, it has since become an important, nostalgic point of interest. Stepping into this red and white train station, with its peaked roofs, visitors can be transported to the past. Its architectural style is distinctive and, despite its age, remains fresh. The whole structure is made of teak wood. The red lacquered roof beams and ceiling, combined with the yellow walls, exudes a strong Thai style. This has become a place where many young people come to take pictures and enjoy the nearby café and bookstore.

Trip Moments

I like the sea, I like to sit on the beach and listen to the sound of the waves. I prefer the sunrise and sunset on the beach. In Hua Hin I am not able to see the sunset because of the direction. I was lucky to see the sunrise though, the day before. I found out the location. I wake up after the alarm clock woke me up this morning. I woke up again and found that the sky was bright, and I stumbled from the hotel with the camera. Fortunately, the hotel was very close to the beach. But I missed today's sunrise at the beach. Today's sunrise was not that amazing. It was only after the sea level that the sun came up. But it is the most beautiful encounter. There are not many people on the beach. With the sound of the waves, watching the sunrise in the east, this is the most pleasant time. The visitors walked across the beach. This is a quiet picture, and I don't want to bother. In the temples of Thailand, every morning, the monks will go out to go to the edge, that is, what we call the giving, to accept the giving of the believers, they must be barefoot, this is a manifestation of respect.
