Places to see, things to do in Hua Hin

Going to Hua Hin for holiday in 57 days and getting very excited!! Going for 2 weeks and Want to hire a car for a week so we can explore further afield, wondered how much this would cost and who to go to. Also would like to hire a sat nav from Avis , what would the cost of that be and also an international driving liscence ?

We are wanting to visit the waterfalls and national park, would love to hear from anyone's experiences of these places and any other sites you think are worth a visit, we don't mind bit of travelling, love food, shopping, history, outdoor adventures, beaches, exploring and learning, site seeing so anybody with knowledge of places worth seeing and things to do in and around Hua Hin we would love to know and if you have any photos of your travels of Hua Hin we would love to see them!!!

We are also going to an island off Hua Hin called Koh Tula, anyone been there any comments, opinions, advice on all the above we want to hear from you!

57 days and counting!!!

Thanks :d

Sam Roi Yot National park is an hour or two down the road and well worth the visit. 100km south of Hua Hin is the provincial capital Prachuabkirikhan, a quiet small seaside town with the very picturesque Ao Minao (Lemon Bay).

Just south of Hua Hin (15-20 minutes) is the Pine Forest Park on the beach, a great place to spend a few relaxing hours. Its inside a military base but you can go in (Same for Ao Minao).

Do also go down the posts as there are mentions of Wat Huay Mongkol, Phetchaburi etc

Yes you need an International Permit

Budget Car rental are good:

Note that touring around Hua Hin itself the cost of a car+driver to take you around for half day or full day trips is probably going to be less than a car rental, plus of course you have the driver who knows the way and although not a guide as such is always a help and they get you direct to the right places and it helps on language too.

The car+drivers in Hua Hin have maps and photos of all the places and you can simply from those choose which places you want to go and negotiate a price. Many of the vehicle are station wagon style so you get lots of room.

Koh Talu Island resort also provide transport from Hua Hin and back again with 1 or 2 night packages.

5. Re: Places to see, things to do in Hua Hin

actually I'm in hua hin right now. One thing i have noticed is (and i'm at the ic) is that everything seems to be resorts, the only people on the beach are riding horses and imo - it's not a bad place.I like it. Found a nice german coffee house with breakfast 200 baht.

More later.
