What Makes Hua Hin So Popular - Reasons Why Hua Hin is a Premier Holiday Hotspot

As one of Thailand's favourite beach holiday hubs, Hua Hin attracts countless visitors every year. Here are some of the reasons why the beach Mecca is a big hit with travellers the world over.


It's Not as Touristy

One of the main complaints most tourists have about Thai beach hubs are the large crowds and congested beaches that have come to be synonymous with destinations the likes of Pattaya and Koh Samui. Hua Hin, on the other hand, is a tranquil beach haven that's far removed from the touristic atmosphere of similar beach hubs. In fact, more locals are likely to be found on the beaches of Hua Hin rather than scores of tourists. It's difficult to escape the feeling that Hua Hin is still very much a Thai town that's not be overhauled to cater to the travelling masses and in that lies its charm.


It's Close to Bangkok

Unlike Koh Samui and even Pattaya, Hua Hin is one of the most conveniently located beach destinations for travellers based in Bangkok. This is why Hua Hin is a popular day trip option for locals as well as expats who live and work in the capital as the beach hub is a mere two hours away by car. Most taxis do not mind making the journey to and from Hua Hin so those with the means to take a cab to the beach Mecca are welcome to do so without leaving travel plans in the mercy of bus and train schedules.


Accommodation is Less Competitive and Budget Friendly

The best time to head down to Hua Hin for a beach holiday is during the weekdays as most hotels and resorts are barely occupied during the weekdays. Whether it's Avani+ Hua Hin Resort or any similar property, renting a Hua Hin villa for a day or two is a less stressful experience compared to booking accommodation in more popular beach holiday venues across Thailand. What'smore, Hua Hin offers a wider selection of accommodation alternatives for those who cannot splurge on a five star resort or hotel. From guest houses to two and three star hotels, Hua Hin welcomes backpackers and luxury travellers alike with open arms and suitable commodities to suit one's budget.


The Seafood Restaurants

Hua Hin has been world renowned for its over water seafood restaurants for generations and these fantastic local eateries remain one of the best reasons to holiday in the beach capital. The restaurants on stilts not only serve up some of the best Thai dishes in the region but also specialize in a plethora of seafood dishes thanks to the abundance of fresh seafood available in the local market.


A Kite Surfer's Paradise

Water sports lovers the world over agree that Hua Hin is one of the top kite surfing hotspots in all of Asia and it's easy to see why as the idyllic weather and water conditions are perfect for a plethora of water bound activities. The sheer number water sports centres and kite surfing schools should alert visitors to the popularity of the sport which is best experienced from the month of December till March when winds are strong.
