Situated at 180 km south of the capital, these two resorts are at 30 km each others. They are a getaway from the sultry metropolis of Bangkok and are ideal for relaxing or family vacations. Among these two beach-towns, Hua Hin is the most equiped for shopping, Dininig and entertainments while Cha Am is good for a calmful rest.
Hua Hin, a tranquil fishing village was turned in the early 1920s into a Royal resort and consequently became popular among Siam’s nobility and upper-class.
The construction of a railway line from Bangkok ensured its accessibility and popularity with a wider part of the the Thai public. But it was the resort’s royal endorsement which has given Hua Hin a special character of its very own. Hua Hin continued to develop in its own leisurely way, both as a aristocratic resort with the added attraction of an 18-hole golf course, and as a fishing port. Today’s visitor to Hua Hin will still sense this special atmosphere and old world charm.
