    Go Kite Asia image
    My partner and I spent over two weeks doing daily lessons with GoKite Asia and were 100% delighted with the school and quality of instruction. Everything from the condition of the gear to their safety standards was top notch. Aron, in particular, is a fantastic instructor; he's great at modeling your skill level and offering tailored feedback and suggestions while making sure you feel safe and in control the entire time. Miko (one of the owners) was our point of contact for scheduling the lessons, renting gear, and everything business-related. He's smart and savvy, very knowledgeable and also very fair. He's also a superb instructor if you have the opportunity to get a lesson from him! This school is simply the best in the area, and the obvious choice for kiting in the Hua Hin / Pranburi area.

  5. 4.5 Cicada Market (5.459 reviews)
    - Spend an evening people watching
    Wednesday: Spent 2-3 hours Art Galleries • Flea & Street Markets
    Cicada Market image
    This is a great place to sit, have a drink, and people watch. It’s a very large market that combines food, drink, art, and music beautifully. It’s only open on weekends. It’s well designed and lit with thousands of white lights and filled with white tented vendors. There was no way to see all of it in just a few hours. Before you can buy any food or drink you must stop at the coupon booth because they only take coupons. If you buy too many you can return them for a refund up to an hour before closing. Very enjoyable evening. See more..

Chains are necessary at the Foundation for the safety of the elephants and visitors. Elephants are large and potentially dangerous animals and chains are an important and responsible aspect of managing elephants in a traditional way in South East Asia where there are no enclosures to safely contain the elephants. We offer our visitors a range of activities that promote a close interaction with our elephants in a safe and enjoyable environment, for both elephants and visitors. Your support will help us to obtain secure land and bathing pools for our elephant family to enjoy. We look forward to seeing you soon! See more..
  8. 4.5 Black Mountain Water Park (1.229 reviews)
    - Value for money
    Wednesday: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Spent More than 3 hours Water Parks
    Black Mountain Water Park image
    We went to the black mountain water park after we were recommended to by a member of staff at our hotel. We were originally going to go to Vana Nava, but with with 2 kids under 10 we knew that there would be a lot of flumes that they would be too small for so opted for here instead. It was ok! The kids had a great time, me and the hubby got a little bit bored though. There aren’t that many water slides but the kids could go on all of the ones they do have. There were no queues at all and the food at the restaurant was reasonably priced. Over all it was nice chilled day, we spent 4 hours here think we would have been pushed to spend anymore time. It was cheap entry compared to Vana Nava at around 1/2 the price (including our taco) We had a nice time, it wasn’t an adrenaline filled day like some might be looking for when going to a water park, I would recommend for family with younger kids.

  9. 4.5 Phraya Nakhon Cave (793 reviews)
    - Enjoyable and manageable hike with a reward at the end
    Caverns & Caves
    Phraya Nakhon Cave image
    Hike to the cave was relatively steep. But it was manageable for us although we were not the most outdoor-sy people around. Proper footwear for the hike would be best. Hiking the the cave and seeing the temple inside was great! I really like the fact that there are many information boards during the hike to share facts about the place. We could have hired a guide for 200tbh at the main restaurant area but only realised this after the hike. Aside from the temple, there are also inscriptions on the cave walls and also natural earth formations like stalagmites and stalactites as well as a dry waterfall. Will definitely recommend this attraction to everyone if you are fit to hike. Fee to enter is 200tbh. Refreshments can be bought at the restaurant at the start of the hike at Laem Sala beach.

    Quaint market with tons of delicious food options! There are a couple of clothing shops but it’s 90% food.

    A very nice park. The tour consists of a relaxing boat ride along the mountain range and on the lotus covers lakes of Sam Roi Yot national Park. There are many colourful birds to see on the lake. The temple in the cave is wonderful and for the adventurous there is a steep climb to the top of one of the mountains (through meadows and forrest) to a limb stone cave. See more..

On half way walk - Close to the river you can call the office for a boat. They will pick you up in 5 min.

  15. 4.5 Wat Tang Sai Temple (220 reviews)
    - Wat tang sai
    Religious Sites
    Wat Tang Sai Temple image
    Wat Tang Sai is located along the Ban Krut sea, Thong Chai Subdistrict, Bang Saphan District, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. It is a beautiful temple that if anyone comes to visit Ban Krut Beach or intends to visit Bang Saphan It's worth a visit once in a while.

  16. 4.5 Kui Buri National Park (199 reviews)
    - Just a Beautiful Place
    Wednesday: 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM Spent 2-3 hours National Parks
    Kui Buri National Park image
    You park your car, buy the ticket (1,050THB at the time of writing) and then walk through onto the back of a pick-up truck. There is little shade so a hat and sun cream might be advisable. My guide had basic English and then just kept eyes peeled for any creatures of which you have an apparent 80% of seeing. Was lucky enough to glimpse a family of elephants through the trees thanks to the guides beady eyes but it was very hot, and would think more activity towards closing time (18:00) than opening (14:00) as previous reviewers have suggested… Beautiful place to just be though in a 1,000KM2 natural forest. See more..
  17. 4.5 Wing 5 (123 reviews)

    902 ft climb to a Spectacular view that is a rewarding struggle that can take about 45 min. took us 1.5 hours because of so many people.

Some recommendations, drinking lots of water, a pair of gloves, and shoes for climbing (an early start is good as it can be hot in Thailand). What say You!! See more..

    Religious Sites
    Lub Lae Cave image
    We had the whole cave to ourselves on a May weekday morning. No need for sweaters as it is not much cooler than outside. Very humid inside but no water accumulation even though it has been raining daily. Our 3 1/2 year old did fine, The lighting and "stairs" facilitate touring. Recommend shoes with good traction. Great photos. See more..

  22. 4.5 Wat Khao Krailart (58 reviews)
    - Lonely, old temple with a view
    Lookouts • Religious Sites
    Wat Khao Krailart image
    I gave this temple a "VERY good" rating mostly because the spectacular view a visitor has after having climbed a long stair case. Wat Khao Krailas sits on top a mountain at the southern end of Hua Hin inbetween two other temples also on mountain tops. Each is different, all afford great views. This temple appears old and a bit neglected, but is still quite charming. Several large Buddhas grace the mountain, but you have to look for them: in a cave, in a small wooden hut, on the hillside looking east and one looking south. According to a nun I met, this Wat is a lonely place, sees few tourists and, therefore is good for a moment of quiet contemplation. See more..
  23. 4.5 Saint Theresa Catholic Church (46 reviews)
    - The building itself is so pleasing to the eye and is hidden behind the main street in Hua Hin. It's easy to pray here.
    Religious Sites
    Saint Theresa Catholic Church image
    It's Christmas day 2017 and I'm away from home for first time. The weather is warm, not Irish cool. The first sight is that there is lots of parking around a well maintained grounds.The church is set in the middle and is impressive and welcoming. The 9oc mass is in Thai, not a bother. Inside is a beautifully decorated building with a choir and full children's orchestra. The mass opened with "Joy to the World", sung and played with a passion words will fail to explain. 80mins later the mass was over much to my regret , ie the opposit to home experience. I have gone back to meditate in case I was dreaming on the 25th....... I wasn't, thank God. Just visit to sit there and allow yourself to be yourself. See more..
  24. 4.5 Khao Kalok Beach (41 reviews)
    - a superb beach sheltering under a large rocky hill
    Wednesday: 12:00 AM - 11:59 PM Spent 2-3 hours Beaches
    Khao Kalok Beach image
    at the end of a long beach, this area is ideal for a visit. There is plenty of shade available, and the sea is excellent for swimming and relatively unpolluted. Various food outlets offer snacks and drinks at low prices. See more..

  26. 4.0 Hua Hin Beach (4.664 reviews)
    - Hua Hin beach post Covid
    Hua Hin Beach image
    In 2022 I spent 2 months in Thailand, March-May with 24 nights in Hua Hin. Of the 24 nights I walked Hua Hin beach 20 mornings after breakfast. The beach is one of the longest stretches of beautiful beaches I’ve seen in my travels. With covid still visible in the rear view mirror, the beach was sparse with tourists which was great for me. On Sunday’s there is giant kite instruction and several in the air. Daily there is rentals of beach wind carts, jet skis and horseback rides. The water was warm but cool enough to get relief from the extremely hot Thai sun. For me this is some of the most enjoyable and affordable forms of exercise in Thailand. Highly recommend. See more..
  27. 4.0 Hua Hin Night Market (1.680 reviews)
    - A must do for food lovers
    Flea & Street Markets
    Hua Hin Night Market image
    While the size and buzz around the market has been impacted by covid the enjoyment hasn’t changed. There’s a huge variety of street foods and a cluster of ‘roadside’ type restaurants. Also numerous market stalls selling all your typical souvenirs and fake clothes etc. If you want to‘eat like locals’ this is the place. A full fresh seafood meal with alcohol costs £15-20 a person. Incredible. You can watch the seafood being prepared and cooked too. A great night See more..
  28. 4.0 Huay Mongkol Temple (1.523 reviews)
    - Excellent
    Natural History Museums • Architectural Buildings • Religious Sites
    Huay Mongkol Temple image
    What a stunning statue, of the Monk who performed miracles to those who needed. You will need a good hour to walk around this religious park, have some cash to donate and there are some souvenirs. It's free entrance and there is a coffee shop and ATMs. Taxis were not available from there so you would need to pre book one or ask the one who brought you there if they could wait for you. I would recommend to come really early on morning, I was here from 0800hrs so you can avoid crowds and the heat. The statue itself is breathtaking, and so many things to see and do. Highly recommend! I hope my miracle happens. See more..
  29. 4.0 Monsoon Valley Vineyard (1.500 reviews)
    - Feb and Mar best time to visit.
    Wednesday: 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM Wineries & Vineyards
    Monsoon Valley Vineyard image
    Thailand's most well-known vineyard. But it seemed to be a bad time. The season's over so a vineyard tour wasn't going to be purposeful, the famed Sala restaurant was closed for renovations so we settled for lunch at the Farm Bistro. Food was pricey but I supposed that's expected of a vineyard. The best dish for me turned out to be the Garlic Cheese Bread. Had to pay a THB200 per head entrance fee as we drove in, but this could be offset against any spend here (food or retail). Clearly, we spent it all on food. See more..
  30. 4.0 Market Village HuaHin (1.245 reviews)
    - Very Western & Convenient
    Wednesday: 10:30 AM - 9:00 PM Spent 2-3 hours Shopping Malls
    Market Village HuaHin image
    Market Village Hua Hin is the largest shopping complex in one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations. The sleepy seaside town of Hua Hin offers a variety of natural and cultural attractions, abundant outdoor activities and superb fresh seafood, but the area are did not have a deluxe shopping mall and entertainment complex until the opening of Market Village Hua Hin in 2006.
