Geographical location

About 110 miles southwest of the capital Bangkok lies the village Hua Hin in the province Prachuap Khiri Khan. The former fishing village in the centre of Thailand has gradually developed over the last 90 years into a tourist centre that is not only very popular with the locals.

About 45,000 inhabitants live on an area of about 520 square miles, but the proximity to the Bangkok metropolitan region makes Hua Hin a popular place for a weekend excursion. Many richer Thais have also bought holiday homes and apartments in Hua Hin.

The border of Myanmar is only 19 miles away from here. The seaside resort on the Gulf of Thailand in Bangkok is easily accessible by train and several coach companies also operate conveniently between the two cities. The journey usually takes about 3 hours.

The beautiful sandy beach is a dreamlike idyll and not as crowded as many islands in the south of Thailand. Some hotels are located in the shadow of the beach promenade, Hua Hin is still far away from classical mass tourism.

Ideally you connect Hua Hin with some other regions in the context of a Thailand round trip or use the days at the beach as a relaxing conclusion of a stay in the turbid capital.

Climate in Hua Hin

License Information available under 'Proof of Image Sources' In Hua Hin there is a subtropical climate, the proximity to the equator brings only small temperature fluctuations. In concrete terms, this means that the air and water temperatures differ only minimally over the course of the year. Thus, the daily values range between 30 °C to 33 °C. Basically one differentiates the climate in Hua Hin into a dry season and a rainy season.

However, it should be noted that even outside the actual rainy season (May to October) there can be small showers. On the basis of the maximum values of 9.69 in precipitation in the rainiest month of October, it can be determined that the rainy season is much less pronounced anyway. The driest months in Hua Hin are between December and April.

The climate determined by the monsoon brings on the other hand excellent water temperatures of 28 °C to 30 °C with itself and thus ideal conditions for a bathing holiday. These high values are mainly due to the peripheral location on the Gulf of Thailand, where the warm water”accumulates” to a certain extent.

When to visit Hua Hin?


The best time to travel in Hua Hin are the months November to February, which are particularly impressive with high temperatures and mostly sunny and dry weather. The period between the beginning of March and the end of April (until the end of the dry season) is also ideal for a holiday, but the day temperatures can become very oppressively hot and are therefore not recommended for everyone.

In the months of May to October, temperatures remain correspondingly high and are accompanied by increased humidity, and the rainy season also brings some precipitation. Nature now shines in splendid green and invites you to extensive discovery tours into the hinterland. Basically, there are always sunny days, but this is without doubt not the best travel time in the region.

Hua Hin is climatically combined with the neighbouring seaside resorts Cha-am and Phrachuap Khiri Khan. Nevertheless, it is striking that November in Phrachuap Khiri Khan often still shows considerable precipitation, while in Hua Hin itself the rainy season has already ended. There may be further postponements in the course of climate change, which is why we do not give November the highest level of recommendation as a travel season.

Highlights and Attractions


One of the highlights in Hua Hin is the adventurous Black Mountain Water Park. This is ideal for a super refreshment after numerous sunbaths and is especially popular with families. Culturally there is a lot to discover on the Cicarda Market, small artists present their skills and culinary delights are also well provided for.

An insider tip for the evening hours is the Saxophone Lounge, about 500 meters away from the beach promenade. Smaller live acts perform here and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Other important sights of the region are the monkey mountain Wat Khao Takiap, the Buddhist sanctuary in Prachuap Khiri Khan and the large Kaeng Krachan National Park in neighbouring Cha-Am.
