Okey, now I am on thin ice, I know almost nothing about this but I got strong recommendation from my wife, this was really professional, friendly and powerful toe nail painting and care. She took the nail painting only and said that it was really worth of money, personel (two women) was kind, polite and careful and they you chatted and joked with me. For men there is a bar some ten meters away so you also can have a good time there
Prices are in the photo (one euro is about 38, dollar 30 and pound 45 bahts).
The Station was built by King Rama VI and it is one of the promine'nt place of Amphur Hua Hin.
This is the royal room in the Hua Hin Railway station which was beuatifully built. You can see this one just in the side of the train station.
Rickshaw, a bicycle taxi, is a slow, but interesting way of seeing the city. Make sure to have good time, and watch out for the traffic. The Bicycle taxis are located outside tourist spots and hotels.
If you are staying at the main beach area of Hua Hin I agree when the tide comes in the width of beach is greatly reduced, but if you are in Takiab and in particular Hua Don Beach then you won't have that problem as the beach stays wide all day and night.
For things to do there are trips to Sam Roi Yot National Park south of Hua Hin which is a nice day out, temples and caves and also the mangrove swamps/mashlands and also the birdwatching area. You can also go north to Kraechan National Park for a more off road jungle trip. Temples at Phetchaburi are well worth the half day toru. Palau U Waterfall gets you into forst areas.
The day trip 2 hours south to Bang Saphan and Koh Talu island for snorkeing is a great day out which you should enjoy.
In town there are restaurants, night markets, bars. The Sasi restaurant and Thai Show is well worth seeing, close to the Hyatt Regency Resort. It is good value and they collect you if you are staing in Hua Hin, one price including the dinner and show.
Hua Hin has Thailand's second largest fishing fleet and the bustling fish market in the north of the town is well worth a visit, especially in the morning when the big catches of fish are being landed.
Very nice thai massage at the elephant massage across from hilton. Usually I'm pretty scared of the traditional thai massage but they did it so well that i got relaxed after they did the legs. Best out of all I tried. 300B for 1hr and 400B for 2 hrs!! and the place is very clean.
It's fun but hot! We did the 26min 2 seater (950B for 2 people). and my friend did a 10min on the junior (400B). Interesting if you like go karting but 26min was too long and hot on the day we went. There were other people there but we got to do our own laps when we got there.
we did a 0.5hr ride for 600B/person (i think 1hr is 800B but it's too long in the heat). You get to watch a little elephant show at the end. They treated the animals really nice so i felt ok about giving them tips.
Takes a full day but is well worth it. Pick up at 6:30am and return to HH at about 6pm. After 3 hours van ride (nice new van), we boarded the boat with around another 2-30people. Some 30min later we reached the first snorkelling site. Sea was calm and quite a bit of fish around. They prepare bananas for you to feed the fish. Actually pretty scary when they all came for the food. There were some colorful corals (but not a whole lot). It was quite interesting. After a while, we went to another snorkelling site. Then we went to island for lunch and lay on the white sandy beach (u got 3hrs). Sea was crystal clear. As beaches at HH are not the most beautiful in the country, the snorkelling tour is a good way to get to white sandy beach.
A typical view in the beach of Hua Hin is all the horses. You can rent a horse and take a ride alone or with help from the owner. This is original and fun. It's also not too expensive. The only bad thing about this is all the horse poo on the beach...
The fishing harbour in Hua Hin is small. but there is one and it gives the place a nice feel i think.
It gives me the feeling that i am not just in a resort town where the only object is lying on the beach, but that i am also a place where locals live and work.
The harbour can get quite lively in the morning and late afternoon and i enjoyed hanging out there when i was in hua hin.
The beach in Hua Hin is not a large open and wide beach with lot's of space, but i think it's really nice and it has a very lively atmosphere.
It's fairly narrow, but it's right next to town and it's always bustling with life and the sand is good.
It's mainly dominated by thai tourists and families from Scandinavia and Great Britain and is no wild party beach, but a good place to keep kids active.
Your question is really going to depend on, at least what i consider, When and weather. I played during the dry season, Feb through april and it was just too dry, You get some great rolls! but too dry for me. I don't care how good the course is that is going to be a major factor just as much as too wet such as during the rainy season. In Burma we used to play Monsoon Golf, too wet but challenging!
There are some really good courses all over Thailand, Hua Hin included and all present their own challenges. And if you've ever played in Asia, what I like is the loonngg par 5's of almost 600 yards. If you are looking for the best, well then you are going to have to get out and do some playing and only you can decide that. Definitly do not overlook Bangkok and Chiang Mai for their courses. Another suggestion is to get in contact with someone in Thailand and they can give you a better idea as to what specifically you are looking for. Which by the way you did not mention in this. Couple places to look are www.golfthailand.org and www.golfinthailand.com and www.golfthailand.net
I played the Majestic Creek in Hua Hin, but as I said, I was not too impressed but that was really only due to the dry weather. The best time of the year for me to golf would be mid to late October through mid January when everything is still lush and green.
Hope that helped
Good luck and have fun!
A nice day trip to do while you are in Hua Hin is to catch the local bus to Phetchaburi town.It's very cheap and you get to see abit of the countryside.While in Phetchburi visit King Mongut 's old palace 'Khao Wang' situated on top of a hill . From the top of this cool palace you can get a very good view of the surrounding area .You can also walk into some parts of the palace which have been converted into a museum .The palace is open everyday but the museum is closed on Mondays & Tuesdays.
Chopstick beach is nice and peaceful for long walks or a swim.There are some good little restaurants and a little fishing village near Takiab hill with a temple.If you look out to sea you will see Lion Island off in the distance.Keep walking along the beach and you will come to Suan Son.You can walk further if you want it's a long beach.....
