Just over two hours on the fast road or a short flight from Bangkok, Hua Hin is Thailand's oldest and most traditional seaside destination. The superior beaches, over 5 km of wide open endless stretches of fine powdery white sand, are relatively uncrowded and clean.
With nearby Cha Am, Pranburi and the province capital of Prachuap Kiri Khan, the region is an ideal place to settle as a young family or as a young retired couple - with much less of the bustling bright lights, beer bars and notoriously racy nightlife of the other side of the Gulf.
The residence of the country’s most respected citizen, His Majesty King Bhumiphol himself, occupying an impressive beach front palace aptly called Far from Worries ensures a calm and dignified environment in the town which is also noted for its excellent inexpensive restaurants.
The mass tourism which started the Pattaya real estate boom was a boon of a different kind for Hua Hin, and on the costal strip from Cha Am to Chumphon, discerning investors are quietly developing choice properties for a quieter clientèle.
Already there is no shortage of foreign owned businesses which speak your language and the comparatively large resident western contingent ensures the shops and malls are stocked with everything you would wish for from home provides you with ample opportunity for making it a cozy, tropical home-from-home with plenty of activities and new friends.
Starting from around $40,000 for a reasonable property, you can have condos, houses with pools to suit your budget without breaking the bank - a real bargain when you compare with the prices back home!
