If you are preparing a trip to Thailand, then one thing is for sure — you will not be disappointed. One of the main reasons Thailand has become the world’s very favorite holiday destination is because the country offers so many incredible attractions available for tourists.
Beginning with the fabulous capital city of Thailand, Bangkok, where so many sensations and sights come together almost riotously, but somehow quite happily. A clash of old tradition and modern commerce, all on one corner in a single street you can find people praying at a historical and much revered shrine, classic Thai dance, right next to some of the region’s most luxurious hotels and modern business office high-rises and glamorous shopping malls.
The Thai name for Bangkok, “Krungthep”, in its much shortened version means the City of Angels. And it certainly is a unique place on earth. Once you experience the high level of city-bustle and energy here, there is no other large metropolis in the world that compares with its wild pace.
But beyond the famous and glittering golden temples of Bangkok, with its enormous shopping malls and never-ending nightlife scene, which is perhaps the most exciting in all of Asia if not the world, the entire country of Thailand awaits visitors with a variety of sights to see and things to do. Whether you are in it for the relaxation or in it for the adventure, Thailand definitely has what you’re looking for.
Without a doubt, outside the marvels of the metropolis, it is the beaches of Thailand that figure highest in visitors’ desires. It is easy to imagine yourself reclining on a sandy tropical beach in the sea breeze just soaking up the sun and pleasure. Taking advantage of all the typical beach activities is somehow more fun in Thailand, where the climate, the people and the tides all coming together in perfection.
The only question is where are the beach activities best during a vacation in Thailand? But this is really not hard to answer. When you consider all of the fun things to do in Hua Hin and combine it with the extraordinary tranquility of the area then the choice is easy. The Hua Hin Thailand attractions win hands down.

Since then, visitors from around the world have increasingly chosen Hua Hin, especially for the things to do in Hua Hin and the places to visit in Hua Hin, as their favorite place for a vacation.
