Thailand, in general, is widely known for its diverse community and hospitable people. Hua Hin, in particular, is a town located in the southern part of the country and is known for its stunning beaches and cultures, which is why many people return here for their vacation. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has everyone restricted at home, you might already be thinking of places to visit once it is all over.
If you are planning for a trip to Hua Hin, here are five activities that you can enjoy during your exploration:
1. Enjoy good food
There are many good restaurants that you can visit in Hua Hin, such as the Sea Harmony Eco Cafe that serves fresh and delicious food. If you’re vegan, they have a wide range of vegan options to choose from as well. If you are fortunate, you might even see the owner’s two cute little bulldogs.
If you’re looking for some Asian fusion, Hua Hin Koti is a Thai-Chinese restaurant that is known for its Tom Yam Gung Soup, which is shrimp soup with lemongrass. Start off your meal with the spicy seafood salad before you feast on other delicacies, and you will surely leave the restaurant satisfied. Keep in mind, however, that the lines can get long here, so be prepared to wait.
Moon Smile and Platoo is another great place to eat. This restaurant is known for its traditional Thai food. If you are looking for a good pick-me-up beverage, check out Jek Pia Coffeeshop. Just be prepared to wait for a little, seeing that this is also a popular spot among tourists.
2. Experience the climate
If you’re up for a tropical climate, then Hua Hin is one of the best places to experience it. Make sure that you are in the right outfit because especially throughout June to August, when the weather is at its hottest, you may be sweating more than usual. If you’re going between September and November, be prepared to experience the rainy season. For this reason, the best time of the year to travel to Hua Hin is at the end of the year.
3. Shop at the market
Visit Hua Hin’s traditional day market, the Chatchai market, to experience the Thai culture. In the morning, don’t miss out on the Chinese-style donuts and ancient-style coffee. Also, Make sure to have some noodles and wontons to satisfy your cravings as you explore the area.
4. Explore the stunning beaches
Enjoy the beautiful beaches of Hua Hin and experience its white sands and the warm water that will make you feel relaxed and calm. You can always ask the locals for secret beaches if you want a quiet time because there will be fewer tourists there.
5. Try out kite surfing
Hua Hin is Thailand’s top kite surfing location, and it is also one of the best in Asia. If you want to try something new, then you should definitely try out kite surfing and learn it at the various schools that are set up. On the other hand, if you would rather sit back and marvel at the beauty of the skies filled with hundreds of kites, you can do so as well!
If you’re thinking of going to Thailand after the pandemic dies down, you should definitely not miss the beautiful town of Hua Hin. This beach town has much to offer and will undoubtedly give you an enjoyable experience that will make your holiday worth it!
