From a fishing village to the attractive seaside resort holidays in Thailand
Hua Hin and Cha-Am are both located at the west coast of the Gulf of Siam. They are about 25 kilometers apart.
The pulsating Bangkok is about three bus hours away (220 km).
From the small fishing village Hua Hin developed since 1920 more and more to a modern seaside resort. The beginning of this development was the construction of the railway station by King Rama VI (1910 - 1925).
Did you know that Hua Hin and Cha-Am are closely linked to the Thai King's House?
This goes back to the construction of the summer palace Klai Kangwon (meaning "far from sorrow") in 1926, at the reign of King Rama VII. The royal palace is still used regularly by the royal family. At this time, in the early twenties of the last century, the magnificent colonial railway hotel near the famous Hua Hin rock was built.
One year later the first golf course, the Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, was opened in Hua Hin. These and other construction measures were the beginning of an ever-growing popularity of the former small fishing village of Hua Hin.
It is remarkable that the pretty town has preserved its unique ambience to the present day. But of course Hua Hin did not sleep the future. The beautiful place is evolving and gaining more and more enthusiastic tourists. This is not least due to the many five star hotels in Hua Hin
