Hua Hin

Khao Sam Roi Yot (Mountain of 300 Peaks) National Park

A short way south of Pran Buri and covering 60 sq. km, this is a place of wonder where the stunning landscape is a breathtaking blend of forested hills, deep valleys, waterfalls, caves, beaches, mangrove swamps and coves. A profusion of tropical vegetation makes the park a sanctuary for various animals and birds.


More than a day excursion from Hua Hin, this coastal province is a beach destination in its own right, offering some fine, near deserted beaches, offshore islands and perfect conditions for snorkeling and scuba diving.


For visitors interested in Thai history and culture, an excursion to Phetchaburi is not to be missed. Today, a provincial capital, Phetchaburi is an historic town and was a major artistic center during the Ayutthaya period. This is witnessed in the superb temple murals of Wat Yai Suwannaram and Wat Ko Kaew, which rank among the finest examples of their kind.

Dominating the northern outskirts of the town is Phra Nakhon Khiri, a hilltop palace and observatory built in the 19th century by King Rama IV. It vantage point rewards the visitor with fine views of the surrounding countryside. A short distance away is the Khao Luang Cave, a splendid grotto which is revered as a sacred shrine and contains a number of Buddha images.

Phra Ratchaniwet Marukhathaiyawan Summer Palace

Just a few km north of Hua Hin resort, the magnificent summer palace of Phra Ratchaniwet Marukhathaiyawan was built in 1923 for King Rama VI. Designed by an Italian architect and constructed out of golden teakwood, the building is a dazzling composition of verandahs and latticework in regal proportions. Now restored to its former glory, the palace is well worth visiting.
