Hua Hin has been a beloved beach getaway for over a hundred years, dating back to the construction of the railroad that connects the bustling metropolis of Bangkok with this dreamy seaside town. By the mid-1920s, it became the chosen holiday retreat for Thai nobility drawn to the undiscovered pristine coastline. And over time, this sleepy fishing village has transformed into a popular coastal destination while maintaining its old world charm and natural beauty. From buzzy artisanal markets to surf breaks and hilltop vistas, there’s no shortage of wonders to uncover in our blooming beach town. So while you’re here, carve out time between seaside sleeps for our must-hit, must-do, must-eat list in our Thai home of Hua Hin.
The Standard, Hua Hin is our place of refuge, nestled in a lush garden dreamscape with native flora and greenery, just steps from the Gulf of Thailand. It is a place of utopia, a meeting point for everyone to connect, create, and find moments of calm. We called upon our ever-growing Thai Family for their tips and recommendations in the paradise that is their home and our new one. We hope you enjoy the 1st edition of The Standard Guide to Hua Hin.
