1. The seafood. Take a walk down to the pier and enjoy faboulus seafood. Several excellent restaurants.

2. The beach. Hua Hin Beach is not Thailand’s mist pittoresque, but it is still my favourite.  Find a quiet spot, look at the kiters and people walking and jogging by. Watch thai kids throwing off their schhol uniforms and jump into the sea. Enjoy a glass of chardonnay at Veranda Lodge.

3. Downtown. The centre in Hua Hin has still got a unique charm. Take your time a lazy afternoon and wath the daily life – some artists painint, thai families preparing for dinner and monks meditating in the temple.

4. The harbour. By sunset a lot is happening down by the harbour. Some boats arrive and other fishermen are preparing for a long night at sea.

8. The monkey mountain. In the southern end of the beach you find a hill, a temple and hundreds of monkeys. Fascinating to look at the monkeys diving into the sea. By the foot of the mountain you have a small fishing village, Kao Takiab. Nice to have yout lunch here, with your feet in the sand.
