Clean white sand, clean blue water, lovely atmosphere and nice to swim in!!! Unlike some beaches in Bali, this beach is much cleaner and you have the opportunity to go horse riding, jet ski riding, hire out paddle boats etc.

Longed for a quiet beach holiday, I decided to head for Hua Hin, a beach holiday destination that is about 3 hours drive from Bangkok. As we took the Air Asia flight that lands at Don Maung airport, we had to take the complimentary shuttle to Suvarnabhumi Airport by showing our boarding pass. The inter-airport shuttle service is made available at the Departure Area, 1st Floor, Gate 8 whereas the coach to Hua Hin was a comfortable 24-seater premium coach provided by Bell Travel Service at Level 1, Gate 8 that only costs Baht 305 per person that we can pre-booked online.

Upon arrival in Hua Hin, the coach stopped at the Hua Hin Station whereby we paid another Baht 200 for a taxi to take us to the Amari Hua Hin where we stayed for 3 nights from Jul 7th – 10th.

Places of interest that we visited during our stay in Hua Hin were the Vineyard, Big Buddha at Wat Huay Mongkol, Sam Phan Nam Floating Market, the Teak Palace (Entrance Fee Baht 60) and the Railway Station. For the convenience of moving around and only to see the places of interest that we wanted to see, we arranged for a taxi that took us to the last 4 places mentioned above except the vineyard for Baht 1200, a 4 hours tour. As for shopping, we went to the Hua Hin Night Market, Chai Chai Market and the Market Village which is a shopping mall.

The trip to the Hua Hin vineyard is definitely worth the experience as it only costs Baht 2100 inclusive of transfer from the Market Village to and fro, elephant ride around the vineyard, 3-course lunch with wine pairing and grape products as take-home souvenirs worth closed to Baht 450.

A restaurant that is worth to mention is Krua Khun Toy managed by a hotel ex-chef and it is located just opposite Amari Hua Hin, walking distance from the weekend market, Cicada. Had dinner there on both nights, first night was a take-away and dining-in on the second night. Worth trying dishes would be the stirred-fried asparagus with prawns (Baht 150) , sea crabs cooked with spring onions (Baht 200) and steamed sea-bass Chinese style (Baht 300). A hearty dinner such as this for two only cost Baht 640 inclusive of drinks and rice. The chef herself was extremely hospitable and accommodating to all our needs where she was also willing to loan us some eating crockery and utensils when we had the take-away on the first night.

As compared to other beach holiday destinations in Thailand such as Phuket and Pattaya, Hua Hin is more tranquil and easy going besides being affordable in many ways.

This beach is about 5 km in length and can be accessed from various points including streets off Phetkasem Road and in some cases directly from some of the hotels. At one point, it is frequently crowded by vendors hiring out loungers/umbrellas. If this is not for you, a short walk along the beach, past the crowded area, will take you to a section of the beach with comparatively few people. We have walked along this part of the beach several times and have always found it clean, also, the water is clear. The walk is enjoyable whether during the day (don't forget your sun screen) or at twilight.

This beach has two things that made it impossible for us to enjoy it. One thing was the horses taking a dump everywhere and no one cleaning it up. The worst thing however is that the water is full of windsurfers, making it hazardous to swim. The instructors there were rude and aggressive when we tried to approach them about it. Something really needs to be done about this if I am ever going back to Hua Hin, and my friends felt the same.
