This blog is dedicated to all things Hua Hin (and a bit of neighbouring towns), the popular resort town in Thailand, just three-hour drive south from the capital Bangkok.
If you are looking for a winter getaway, a place to spend a night or two on your Thailand journey, or even a place to stay for longer, or are just curious, keep reading.
Hua Hin was a small, sleepy fishing village until the early-to-mid 1900’s, when the newly-built railway and the King’s summer residence, Klai Klangwon Palace, boosted its development into Thailand’s first beach resort.
And it has enjoyed continuous development and increasing visitor numbers ever since. Despite this, and this is why so many people love this town, it is much more low-key than places like Phuket or Pattaya, resulting in a more relaxed feel all around.
In this blog, I will tell you about my experiences from my numerous trips there. You can expect posts about the famous attractions, little-known cool places around town, the nightlife, the restaurants and many other topics. The blog is written mostly for tourists, not expats; if you’re in the latter group, you probably already know much of the stuff I’m covering.
As you might have noticed, the title of this blog refers to Soi Bintabaht, the popular walking street near Hotel Hilton in the town center. This is where the largest concentration of tourists are found - thus, the title Beyond Bintabaht hints that places and activities most tourists ignore get covered here.
I hope I got you interested. Happy reading!
