There is Plenty to Enjoy in Your Weekend Escape to Hua Hin

Escaping the city for the weekend is always refreshing, whether you’re adventurous and looking to explore a new town or experience the local natural environment, or an introvert who just needs some alone. Hua Hin is the perfect place to spend the weekend no matter which type of person you may be.

For the adventurous, there are plenty of places to visit that will open your eyes and show you new, colourful aspects of life in Thailand. For the introvert, there are also kilometres of unspoiled beaches to wander along and art galleries where you can muse over original collections of creative artworks.

Hua Hin is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, but it is close enough to make for a rewarding and rejuvenating weekend escape.

Once you enter the cave, have your cameras ready as the dappled sunlight shines down onto the Buddhist pavilion that has been built in the cave. It’s a magical sight that deserves to be saved as a memento of day’s your adventure in the wilds near Hua Hin.

Hua Hin is justifiably famous for the kilometres of quiet, sun-swept beaches that define the eastern edge of the town. You can walk for hours along the beach, stopping in one of the numerous cafes and restaurants for a refreshing drink or some succulent, fresh seafood.

Many of these places feature outdoor seating area where you can enjoy the soft breezes off the Gulf of Thailand and take in the views of the sea. It’s a peaceful and delightful to spend the day in the fresh, ocean air.

Maybe later in the day you’d like to wander among some artworks. If so, Hua Hin has two attractions well worth discovering.

These paintings, handicrafts, old photographs and sculptures are housed in an old home on Naepkhehat Road.
