Pitanu's Guide to Hua Hin

Neighborhoods
Most people who come to this sleepy town come here for the beach. While other beach towns in Thailand are all about the nightlife, Hua Hin is a much quieter destination where you can truly lie down on the beach for hours of peaceful sun-worshipping. Hua Hin's beach stretches for four kilometers—and while it might not be the largest or the whitest in Thailand, it makes up for it by being great for swimming, offering lots of family-friendly things to do, and always having deckchairs and umbrellas available for rent. Beach vendors selling refreshments and local souvenirs and crafts are often around (without being pushy) in case you need to stock up on goods without walking too far.

Food scene
An open-air weekend market that's all about arts and crafts, Cicada is popular with both Thai and foreign tourists and is particularly lively once the sun goes down. The market is divided into four sections that include decorative home items and fashion for sale, an art gallery, a massive outdoor food court, and an area dedicated to live music and shows featuring bands, dance groups, unique pantomime performances, and live DJs.

Just after the Cicada market, the Tamarind Market is another Hua Hin night market only open at the end of the week. There is a stage with live music and dozens of food and drink stalls. Don't expect to buy souvenirs, the stalls here offer almost only food and drinks. The difficulty, on the other hand, will sometimes be to find a place to sit to enjoy your dinner.

No matter how much upscale shopping you do in Thailand, nothing beats the authentic feel of a local night market—a chance to soak up the atmosphere and experience real Thai market culture. Night markets often have no rhyme or reason in Thailand—and Hua Hin's night market is no exception. Here, you'll find arts and crafts next to cheap snacks (don't be too shocked at the deep-fried insect snacks for sale) and stalls offering apparel.

This cascade is found on the south side of Kaeng Krachan National Park, some 60kms west of Hua Hin. The park is one of the largest in Thailand and sits right next to the Burmese (Myanmar) border. The waterfall has 16 steps, making it one of the highest in Thailand and those who make it to the top will be rewarded by superb views over Thailand and towards Burma. It should be noted, however, that progressing further than the third stage will be arduous and should only be attempted by those fit enough to do so.

Khao Sam Roi Yot’s dramatic backdrop of endless limestone peaks festooned in lush greenery inspired its name (Khao Sam Roi Yot means ‘the mountain with three hundred peaks’). Covering an area of nearly 100 sqkm along the coast, approximately 60km south of Hua Hin, Khao Sam Roi Yot is as close as it gets to Krabi Province’s dream-like seascapes in the south of Thailand. Peppered with marshes, wetlands and mangrove swamps, the mountains house an abundance of wildlife, including barking deer, crab-eating macaques and serow, an Asian goat-antelope.

Water Park
Vana Nava is Thailand’s best water park, offering thrilling rides and world-class facilities. There are 19 rides in total, each of which is very professionally assembled, with plenty of fast food restaurants and shopping options to make this a great day out for the whole family. In fact, Vana Nava draws in plenty of people from Bangkok and even further afield as the rides here are on a different level to anything else currently offered. Safety is also taken very seriously here, with marshals supervising each ride to make sure everyone is having fun and using the rides correctly. Be aware that children under 90 cm tall won’t be able to ride some slides.

The beach might be just a few steps away, but that doesn't mean visitors should skip a visit to Hua Hin's water park when in town. With nine slides (including an impressive 17-meter-high vertical slide tower with a heart-stopping straight double-drop) and six pools, Black Mountain has something for everybody. Lounge around in the lazy river, try the giant pool especially dedicated to water games, or jump into the largest wave pool in Thailand—then have a bite or grab a beach chair for some relaxing time in the shade.

Thailand's first 4D Art Museum is a must-see for all ages. A quirky collection of fun murals painted by Thai artists, art installations, and sculptures, these are truly living images. Place yourself in the right spot, take a photo, and voila—you're automatically part of a 3D image where piano stairs come to life, you can jump into the mouth of a shark, and monsters almost get you in the Horror Zone. The 4D element is provided through music and sound effects that make each museum zone even more unique.
