Hua Hin is a much-loved beach destination situated on the Gulf of Thailand. Just under 200 kilometres from the capital it has become a popular weekend getaway for the residents of Bangkok.
Many expatriate families and retirees have moved to the area to escape the bustle of the city and enjoy the lifestyle on offer here.
The market is awash with a range of property options regardless of budget and styles. Whether that is a condominium unit by the sea or a private villa with pool. Buying property in Hua Hin has become a lucrative investment with a demand for rental property and for resales too. But what factors are luring people to this pretty beach haven?

Hua Hin boasts a long expanse of sandy beach but also swathes of greenery too. Here you can bask in beach life, enjoy local seafood by the water in Hua Hin’s old town or sample the local wine at the vineyard deep in the hills.
There are national parks and even conservation centres to visit wildlife including elephants. The natural environment is at its best in Hua Hin and is a big draw for those living here and those wanting to come and stay.

There is a range of hotels suited to all budgets plus an increasing number of rental options for those looking for short and long term lets in private accommodation.
