When to go

Although it’s drier than much of the country during monsoon season (June–October), this region is best visited from November to March, when it’s sunny by day and often cool at night. Hua Hin, like Bangkok, gets horribly hot between April and May. Even worse than the heat, though, are the traffic jams on Fridays and Saturdays; head to Hua Hin on a weekday and you’ll have the whole place to yourself.

Getting there

  • Automobiles

    Hua Hin Limousine Services ( ferry folk from Bangkok airport or the city centre to Hua Hin and back, and can also arrange day trips around the region. The drive takes two to three hours, but be warned: at times the traffic between Bangkok and Hua Hin gets thundercloud-thick.
