Family friendly resort favoured by the Thai royal family

Hua Hin with its beautiful luxury hotels and vast expanse of beach is 230 km south west of Bangkok on the Gulf of Thailand. It is hugely popular with Thai families and has been a popular stamping ground for the Thai social elite, including the royals, since the 1920s. Families, couples and independent travellers visiting from overseas also flock here as Hua Hin is under three hours driving time from Bangkok airport and offers a reassuringly wide choice of accommodation and entertainment.
