Beach selection

If you want to live right next to the beach, thendepending on the area, you will need to rent an apartment. They are built on the first lines, not at home. If you are satisfied with the third and other lines, you can consider renting a townhouse. Still, a townhouse in walking distance from the sea will have to search.

Usually live either in Hua Hin itself, or onTakiabe, this is a district in the south of the city near the mountain of the same name. Hua Hin is a small city, so wherever you live, everything will be relatively close. If you look at the map, it stretches along the central beach, which starts from the road leading from the railway station and to Takiab mountain. Actually, all along the coast you can live in one of the condominiums. In the western part of town there are townhouses and houses.

Visually, the city beach is more pleasant than the beach.Takiab. But both on the fan, not bounty never. On Takiab, the area itself is quieter somehow, and the area itself is fairly quiet, with no traffic. Here, look at my Hua Hin beach overview.

What types of housing is on the island

The main type of housing in Hua Hin is condominiums.and townhouses. Of them consists of urban buildings. Moreover, the townhouses are usually quite simple, can be a bit shabby and without air conditioning. Condominiums, on the contrary, mow down the euro style: laminate flooring, better furniture, beautiful bathrooms and modern kitchens.

With houses in Hua Hincompare with Phuket and Samui. They are, yes, but everything is quite far from the sea, and if without transport, then it will be difficult to live there. In general, most of the wintering workers live in townhouses, because they are cheaper than condominiums and houses. In addition, you can find such a townhouse, to the sea was 10-20 minutes on foot. Usually townhouses are located in Hua Hin itself.

The cost of townhouses and apartments in Hua Hin

The cost of housing depends on how longyou need an apartment, you rent it through an intermediary, or you yourself came out to the owner, and also from the ability to bargain. It must be said that in Hua Hin there is a lot of what kind of housing is rented through agents or through Airbnb. Foreigners buy apartments, live in their own country, and housing is rented without their participation. Thus, if the owner of the studio can be removed for 13-15 thousand baht, then the agent will offer it somewhere for 18-20, hence the high prices in general. Apartments cost an average of 13-20 thousand baht per month for a studio or one-bedroom apartments, and 20-30 for a double or more. In Hua Hin itself, the price is usually slightly higher than on Takiab.

Airbnb is also a good service through which you canrent private housing without intermediaries, both daily and for a longer period. If you do not have a registration there, then it's time to register and get a $ 20 bonus via this link. The bonus can be used throughout the year when you first book. And be sure to read my detailed post about this service, where I tell how to register, how to get a bonus, how to search for accommodation, etc.

Townhouses are considered budget accommodation and it is theirprefers most wintering men. You need to look for them on the spot upon arrival. On average, the price for a townhouse will be about 10-12 thousand baht. In this case, you will get a larger area than in apartments for 15 thousand. Well, and houses cost about 20 thousand baht and above.


There are several supermarkets in Hua Hin. The main and large Tesco is located in the Market Village shopping center in the very center of the city, that's where everyone usually goes and bought. From the same Takiab not a problem to get on the shuttle bus, 10-15 minutes. There is also a Market Villa right next to the Market Village, Big C in the west of the city (it’s not convenient to get by bus), Macro in the very north of the city (near the airport), a small Tesco in the south not far from Takiab, but only in its own transport.

So, if you get attached directly to walkingavailability to Tesco in the Market Village, you need to live in or near the center of Hua Hin, and there is a noisy, crowded, there is a busy highway that you can not go everywhere with a sidecar apartments are more expensive than on the outskirts.

Takiab has its own fruit and vegetable market, which is open on the temple grounds on Tuesdays and Saturdays, so there is no need to go to the Market Village. Hua Hin itself also has markets.


The city runs several minibuses(songteo), which have different routes, depending on what color it is. For example, on the green one can move along the whole city along the main road up to Takiab. The price is fixed, for example, Hua Hin - Takiab fare costs 15 baht.

Thus, if you live along the route route, then renting a bike or a car is not necessary. Although, of course, it is more convenient to move on your own transport.
