Located at about 200kms away from Bangkok, Hua Hin is an already popular spot among the expats. The sandy coasts of the beautiful beach are not over developed and commercialised yet. The 5kms stretch of white sand touching turquoise waters is a sight to behold. The beach has some luxurious accommodation options too along with a night market where you can savour on sea food which is cooked live in front of you. You can be a part of the usual adventure sports like snorkelling and diving here.
