Although Hua Hin caters mostly to the locals, it is very accessible to others as well. Let's take a look at some of the essential experiences if you find yourself in Hua Hin.


The local culture and etiquette

If you have not visited Thailand before, its customs and manners can be a bit strange and complicated for you. Although tourists are usually forgiven for their innocent mishaps here, it is always a good idea to catch up on general rules and regulations in the country before you visit Thailand since that would help you have a trouble-free vacation. It is quite important that you are courteous and polite. Make sure to learn the words for "hello" and "thank you" before you leave for Thailand. Do not get into any arguments with the locals since you will end up losing "face" or pride according to the local customs. It is also important that you do not make another person lose theirs either. Make sure not to discuss sensitive topics like politics or the royal family when you visit religious sites like temples in Thailand. Always dress up in long sleeves and pants and ladies should not make physical contact with the monks.


Know about the currency

The local currency in Thailand is known as baht. Moreover, if you are planning to use your credit or debit cards when in Thailand you will be able to find enough ATMs in Hua Hin and there are many money exchange booth in the area as well. You should be able to enjoy an exciting time in Thailand even if you are on a budget. There are many intriguing Hua Hin hotel deals that would fit ideally within your budget.

From quite affordable hotels and resorts to luxurious international brands like Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa, this is definitely a paradise that you should cross off your bucket list.


Think about the weather

Like most tropical regions in the world, Thailand too experiences three major seasons of weather including the winter season, warm season and the rainy season. The warm season begins during the month of March and continues through the month of June. If you are planning to visit Thailand during this time, brace yourself for an extremely warm atmosphere in Thailand. However, you can enjoy a chilly breeze from the sea so get ready to have some fun on the beach as well. Keep in mind that the rainy season in Thailand commences in the month of June. One major benefit is that Hua Hin does not experience too much rain as other regions in Thailand. The rainy season in Thailand will last until October. You will see Thailand experiencing heavy rains during September and August. The cold season is a great time to visit Thailand, which occurs at the start of November and lasts until the end of February. Days tend to be comparatively warm and nights are chillier. Make sure you go ahead and pack according to the season you are visiting Thailand in order to avoid extra spending during your stay.
