Hua Hin is a popular seaside resort in Thailand. It is situated on the north of Cha Am and south of Bangkok. The climate of Hua Hin is tropical with occasional rain and high humidity. Avoid making reservations between March and April when the weather gets extremely hot. It is more pleasant to book a cheap hotel between November and February when the temperature is cooler.

Before the birth of Hua Hin in 1834, there were agricultural areas in the province of Phetchaburi that suffered from severe drought. The affected farmers relocated southward where they discovered a small village with white sands and plenty of rocks on the beach. They decided to settle in the area and named it Samore Riang (rows of rock).
