Hua Hin

The seaside town of Hua Hin, meaning “Stone Head”, was named after the rocks at the north end of the powdery sand beach. Hua Hin became Thailand's first beach resort after a train line was laid in the 1920’s to provide access from Bangkok and King Rama VII established his summer retreat in the area. With a 5 kilometer-long beach that features numerous activities, the laid back and hospitable town of Hua Hin continues to draw both tourists and Thais. In addition to beach fun and games, outstanding seafood restaurants, and a vibrant night market, Hua Hin is well known for having some of the finest golf courses in Thailand, as well as some of the most renowned resorts and destination spas in the world.


Attractive Places


Wat Huay Mongkol
The statue, which is about 12 meters tall and 10 meters wide, is set on a large mound. The image can be seen from far away reaching higher than the trees. You can climb up the wide stairways to the giant statue; bring water and sun cream since there is no shade and it gets hot quickly. This place is very popular with Thai people from all over the country, who come here to pay respect to Luang Phor Thuad and to ask for things as favors, good luck, health, fortune and happiness. On each side of the giant statue, there is a huge wooden elephant. Local people walk in circles under the belly of the elephants wishing for good luck. The complex also holds a Buddhist temple, a statue of King Taksin the Great on horseback and shops where Buddhist amulets can be bought.



Plearnwan
   Plearnwan is an eco-vintage village that features a faux Thai high street in the 1950s for the older generations to recall their good old days and the younger to learn and appreciate traditional culture. Because of that, Plearnwan is so named – Plearn is a combination of “play” and “learn” while Wan is from “wunwan”, meaning good old days.
   Two-story wooden shophouses in the heart of Plearnwan are where reminiscences are kept. Plearnwan’s shops are decorated in old-fashioned style with advertisements, film posters, fashion magazines, appliances, and collections which can take you back in time to a nostalgic time.
   At the weekend, a funfair is held with an outdoor cinema, a Ferris wheel, and a variety of amusing sidestalls and games. Plus, indulge yourselves with dishes at Khao-oon Kaengron, a renowned local restaurant, skewered sweet grilled fish, Thai style noodle rolls, Thai coconut pancakes, ice pops, Thai style soft drink and Thai style coffee. If you are looking for a vintage hotel, “Piman Plearnwan” would like to welcome you with their colourful retro style guest rooms.
Plearnwan is open from 10.00 to 22.00 from Sundays to Thursdays and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
