Staying in Hua Hin

While Central Hua Hin puts you in the middle of the action if you’re hoping to go more off the beaten path consider Khao Takiab. This nearby fishing village is a perfect beach spot for relaxation. It’s also close to Wat Khao Takiap a temple where you'll often spot local monkeys.
