Hua Hin - The Royal holiday place in Thailand
The King’s favourite since 1920
The Bangkok climate has always been pressing, especially during the summer months. Most people have to accept it and learn to live with it, but during the early 1920’s the Royal family, along with other parts of the Bangkok elite, decided that enough was enough - it was time to build a summer palace in a location not too far from the capital, but far enough to offer a pleasant escape from the heat and hustle and bustle of the big city.
The choice of location fell on friendly Hua Hin, 200 km away from the big city, and along with the Royal summer palace a railroad and an impressive railway station were built in the village. There had to be a way from the Royalties to make a proper entrance to their holiday home! Several palaces were built, among them the Royal one, located beautifully by the sea. Still today this is where the Royal family comes to relax and charge their batteries.
Soon everyone’s favourite
During the 1980’s the luxury hotels started popping up and tourists from abroad realised what a gem Hua Hin was, conveniently close to Bangkok. The international chains are well-established in Hua Hin today - it has become a place that offers a rare mix of city pulse and lazy paradise. The middle class and up of Bangkok love to spend their weekends in Hua Hin, as well as holiday makers from all over the world.
