Thailand is full of beautiful landscapes, architecture, culture, and natives that will keep you entertained and always wondering what will be discovered next. It is truly a land of excitement and adventure! The town of Hua Hin is located approximately 200 kilometers south of Bangkok on the west coast of the Gulf of Thailand. It is the oldest, and most traditional, resort destination in Thailand with the attractions of a modern holiday destination mixed with the charms of an older fishing village from which it draws its roots. The King and Queen of Thailand call Hua Hin home, and it's no wonder why!
