The city Hua Hin with more than 50,000 inhabitants is only 188 km from Bangkok, situated on the southern train route. When the railway track was first completed, the director of the railway Prince Purachatra, a son of the king who ruled at that time, gave orders to construct the Railway Hotel in 1921. Directly on the beach a modern resort with tennis court and the first golf course in the country was built according to European models. The high society arrived here during the hot season to enjoy the cool sea breeze.

Sofitel Centara
(former Railway Hotel)
The sandy and partially rocky beach is 6 km long, up to 100 m wide and covered with deckchairs and umbrellas. It is suitable for swimming only from the Sofitel Hotel onwards to the south. The beach gets cleaned once a week and Palm groves provide a tropical feeling.
At certain times of the year jellyfish can be an annoyance for those who enjoy swimming.
During the Thai season from June to October you can observe typical Thai beach life. This includes a ride on one of the 30 ponies along the beach (200 Baht/30 minutes). The beach looks pretty dirty then, which can be a health hazard for many children playing there. To the south the beach is bordered by a promontory, where several Buddhist temples nestle on the top of small rocky hills.
The sandy beach is separated from the harbor by a rocky promontory, where a high rise hotel building has been constructed that now belongs to the Hilton group.
Fishermen come back to the harbor to unload their catch in the mornings between 7 and 8 am and in the evenings, when the fish is sold immediately.
In the small side lanes around the harbor peoples lives have always been influenced by fishing.
