Time to go to Hua Hin or Krabi

I have looke into going to Hua Hin bt am a bit concerned about the beaches and sea...and their quality. I've been to koh samui and know krabi is beautiful, but wanted ot avoid the extra flight once arriving at bangkok, therefore looked at hua hin. Can anyone comment on the beaches?

Also I would normally go at christmas, but due to other comitments this year need to go between june and september. Weather websites have conflicting reports...what is the weather like in hua hin during this time? Alot of rain or ok? Which month between june and september has the least rain?

Weather in the Gulf around Hua in June to september should be dry and sunny, usualy around 27-34, true the beaches around Hua Hin are not as good as Krabi but they are very different places and have their own features and attractions, if the beach is important perhaps Koh Chang is worth you thinking about but of course far quieter than Samui? at that time of year is not a good time for krabi weathwerwise.

Just returned from both Hua hin and Ao Nang(Krabi)yesterday. I didn't care for the water at Hua Hin, but the beach itself was nice to just relax and enjoy the weather. There is a great selection of restaurants and it's nice and quiet at night. Ao Nang is beautiful and the water is fantastic. Take a longtail to one of the islands close by and you'll be in paradise - probably best to go in June.
