Avani Travel Diary – Hua Hin, Thailand


Our first stop in Thailand is Hua Hin, a seaside town famed for its history as a summer holiday destination for the Thai royal family. There is quite a lot to sightsee and explore, aside from holiday-ing at the Avani+ Hua Hin Resort. Here’s my list of best things to do in Hua Hin, Thailand.

Glimpse history at the Hua Hin railway station built during the reign of King Rama VI back when there was no road access to the town, and train or boat were your only travel options. The over-the-top architecture makes you feel like royalty as the train pulls up at the station.

The next stop is the Santorini Park in Cha-am with its Greece-inspired whitewashed buildings, colourfully painted windows, and quaint cobblestone paths meandering among the blooming gardens — the perfect setting for your photogenic moments.

Then it’s on to the seaside summer palace of His Majesty King Vajiravudh. Set in a beautiful garden with statuesque trees and stunning sea views, Mrigadayavan Palace is a series of 18 interlinked teak buildings with tall, shuttered windows and patterned fretwork built upon stilts.
