Visit the Maruekhathaiyawan Palace

Easy to reach from Hua Hin hotels, this is the summer seaside palace of the Royal family. Built in the 1920's during the time of King Rama VI the palace was designed by an Italian architect. The place is beautiful boasting a number of verandas and intricate latticework; there is also a lovely boardwalk made from golden teak obtained from the torn down Hat Chao Samran palace. One of the most beautiful features of the palace is the passage which leads down to the beach. The Maruekhathaiyawan Palace located in Cha Am is only 15 minutes from the Anantara Hua Hin Resort.


Explore the Hua Hin Railway Station

Another location enhanced by the Royal family, the Hua Hin Railway station was built during the time of King Rama VI and in located a short distance from the city centre. The most notable feature there is the 'royal waiting room'. The buildings boast beautiful architectural styles which recreate traditional Thai designs while managing to retain a very Victorian vibe. Take along the cameras for the charming station, its features and surroundings are perfect for capturing some unique aspects of Hua Hin.


Browse the Cicada Market
