We almost always go a few days to Hua Hin when we arrive in Thailand, just to rest. Sitting on the beach, walking on the market, enjoy good food in the evening. Nearby is also plenty to see if we just do not want to sit on the beach.
The Hua Hin beach is beautiful, a few kilometers long and clean.
It runs through to Khao Ta Kiab, and it is wide enough
in order to put down , also at high tide, a few rows of seats.
At the entrance, at the end of Thanon Damnoenkasem, it is very busy,
there are plenty of chairs, umbrellas and tables, very close together.
You have, like everywhere in Thailand, to pay for the seats, ask for the price in advance.
Take the trouble to turn right, to the south,
and walk 5 to 10 minutes, it is much quieter,
and chairs with umbrellas are much further apart.
The beach there is also wider.
North of the fishing pier is also beach, that runs very far, to Phetchaburi. But it is much narrower, not a very good place to sit.
Like everywhere in Thailand you can order food and drinks on the beach,
just ask the lessor of the chairs.
Usually you do not to pay for the seats if you order food,
but ask in advance.
The food is, according to us, pretty good on the beaches of Thailand.
Also there are people walking around who sell food, such as fruit.
Pia's family is unhappy about the quality of the food near the entrance. We have no experience with that.
Besides food also clothing, toys and towels are sold on the beach. And you can have a massage, nice, but not really good Thai massage. Do you like riding, then you can hire an horse at the entrance and take a ride on the beach. At many tourist beaches you can also rent watercraft and speedboats. but not in Hua Hin, that is not allowed there because the king is often staying in a palace in Hua Hin, and it makes swimming a lot easier. In some parts of the beach are large stones, it looks nice, and they do not bother you if you want to swim.
We find it pleasant to sit on the beach in Hua Hin. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food pretty good, the beer cold. Nice to recover from the flight and the stress in the Netherlands.
When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
