What to see in Hua Hin - attractions and excursions

Hua Hin is a beautiful city, and besides the sea in itmany places to go and what to see, starting with the Royal Palace and the train station, ending with natural attractions in the vicinity.
I personally liked the city very much, and it’s not boring at all, as many believe. Perhaps because I am already a little old and I’m not at all interested in all kinds of different parties and discos with ice-breakers.

Little impressions of Hua Hin

Having stayed here for about 1-2 weeks, Ithere was a strong desire to live here once, and it was to live, rent a house and stay for a couple of months, maybe more. Yes, of course, to the insular nature of Hua Hin is very far away, but as a good place to work and occasional holidays at the sea, it fits perfectly. Given that I am quite unassuming to the sea, and there are a couple of good beaches here. And I also liked the opportunity to walk on the city beach instead of the promenade. In general, I dislike the sand because it is clogged in shoes and sticks to my feet, but here the coastline is straight, notably trampled and wide, and you can go far, right up to Khao Takiab.

Hua Hin - a kind of European resort. There are many old people with secret handles, including those on wheelchairs, there are enough bars with red light, from which Thai girls passionately tout, but thank God it’s not as passionate as in Pattaya. There is no debauchery, everything is decorous and noble, and there have not been any special encounters of the Ledyboys either. In general, even the city itself was liked, somehow it is nice and cozy. It is not very big, but it has everything you need: shops, shopping centers, a hospital, car and bike rentals. And especially pleased that you can go live on the outskirts or in the suburbs, where it will generally be very quiet, but you will still have the opportunity to quickly get to the center of the city or go by minibus to Bangkok. Hua Hin is considered the safest city, perhaps it is, really very calm. By the way, I took the car and the bike for rent, did not stop, everything went through, although the rights were with me.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
