Tanjung Aru Beach

When the temperature drops and it gets harder to get up in the morning it's easy for the mind to drift to visions of sandy beaches, warm turquoise waters and exotic rainforests.

Fall in love with the charm of this sleepy fishing village

It doesn’t have the rolling blue waves of Samui or the sophisticated Beach Clubs of Phuket. It’s not known as a hedonistic spa destination or the place to go for an adventurous elephant trek, although you can do both here. What Hua Hin does have is over 20, gorgeous five-star resort hotels lining the beachfront from Hua Hin to Cha-Am and a charming vibe that’s both traditional and trendy at the same time.
