HUa Hin Train Station
Built during the reign of King Rama VI, and only a short distance from the centre of town, Hua Hin's railway station has become a popular tourist attraction. Its quaint, East-meets-West architectural style stands in stark contrast to the modern hotel buildings and outdoor malls that have become an integral part of 21st century Hua Hin’s skyline.
Hua Hin Beach
Your holiday to Hua Hin will not be complete without soaking your feet in the warm tropical sand. From pony rides on the beach and thrilling banana boat rides for the kids to waterskiing, windsurfing and parasailing for adventure-seeking beach lovers, Cha-Am or Hua Hin’s long beach offers something for everyone.
Stepping through Plearn Wan is like stepping into a time machine – suddenly, you find yourself surrounded by all things vintage.
