Hua Hin Video Guide: The Best Beach Activities
Hua Hin is about 3 hours away from Bangkok and is famous for its long stretch of pristine beach but just because there is only one beach doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Hua Hin beach has many faces, it just depends what kind of things you want to do. So, here are our guide to the best beach activities in Hua Hin.
Morning Merit Making by the beach
One beach activity completely unique to Hua Hin is that every morning at sunrise monks walk down the beach collecting merits. Doing this definitely means rising early, but the incredible scenery and spiritual aspect makes this a breathtaking moment.
Horse Back-riding and Parasailing
It’s also this area that is full of activity. You can hire horses right on the sand, or enjoy parasailing, jet skiing, banana boating and more. You will find lots of people, shopping and sun umbrellas in this spot.
For those who crave soft white sand and lots of sun then make your way to the beach area around the Intercontinental Hua Hin resort. Here is quieter and there is no sun umbrellas – perfect for sun seekers.
Visiting Khao Takiab Temple
Carry on to the end of the beach and you will find Khao Takiab. Drive to the top and you can discover a beautiful temple and a golden Buddha overlooking the ocean as well as many inquisitive monkeys. The view from here is – incredible.
