Songthaew taxis (also known as Baht Bus) is the most affordable way to travel around Hua hin. Cheaper to move only on foot.

Which includes two parallel benches. Songthaew is translated from Thai for "two benches". They ply on certain routes and carry passengers on them.

Generally Songteo it's an amazing transport. It can be stopped look! One has only to look at them, they stop, and the driver with a smile and invites you to ride. It's a joke, of course :-).

Shopping in Hua hin is not very strongly developed, if you compare it with Bangkok, Phuket or Pattaya. Full big shopping centre there is only one, the rest to buy something in small shops, on markets or in specialty stores. Here are the most interesting places to shop that are worthy of note:

Railway station Hua hin

Ж/д станция Хуахина Railway station Hua hin

Train station Hua hin is positioned as one of the main attractions of Hua hin and the most beautiful station in Thailand. For locals, this place is very important and almost sacred. The fact is that due to the construction in 1911, the station Hua hin began to develop and turned into a resort. But the most important is that in 1920, near the main building there is an additional Royal waiting room in which to spend time while waiting for the train members of the Royal family. Currently the Royal hall is not in use, but they're a start.

Architectural station is really interesting, especially the Royal hall. It is designed in traditional Asian style, entirely of wood.

Wat Ampharam

Wat Ampharam (main Hua hin temple), also called Wat Hua Hin, is a major temple and monastery in town and one of the main attractions in the centre of Hua hin. Architecturally, it is nothing remarkable stands out, you can even say it is one of the most ordinary temples in Thailand, but on the practical use of the temple is very important. He is at once a temple, a monastery, a crematorium and cemetery. Of course, the cemetery is not in this sense as you can expect.

Гора Khao Takiab, Хуахин Mountain Khao Takiab

The mountain and the temple of Khao Takiab (Monkey Mountain also) although it is called the mountain of monkeys, they are gone a long time ago. Rather, almost gone. Only a few elderly monkey lives in a frame on the top of the mountain.

But interesting mountain in the first place, not monkeys, and several religious buildings located on it. On the slope face to Hua hin is a 20-meter high Buddha statue. And if you walk or drive on the mountain, on its top at a height of 272 meters, you can see the Thai-Chinese temple Wat Khao Lat. Also on the mountain there are several viewing platforms, overlooking the coast of Hua hin.

The mountain is located on the southern border of Hua hin, South of the mountains along the coast stretches a great quiet beach with palm trees at Khao Takiab Beach. At the entrance to the hill is a market where you can eat fresh seafood.

Hua hin night market (Chat sila, Hua Hin Night Bazaar) is one of the best places in town for an evening drink, especially with family.

Floating market and Sam Phan Nam

In our opinion this market is the closest to a real floating markets, although, of course, to them it is still far away... Read more...
