POINT OF INTEREST

Hua Hin became a romantic holiday destination a century or more ago, when members of the Royal Family and the aristocracy built palaces and villas in which they could spend the summer months away from the city. Consequently, there are many lovely old residences still to be seen. When Hua Hin started to become a tranquil holiday retreat for everyone, the number of modern attractions quickly grew. Today, there is something of interest and charm for everyone.
