When compared to Bangsaphan Hua Hin is a bustling metropolis. Situated only 180km north it can be reached in two hours by car or sprinter train.
Hua Hin has hundreds of hotels, guesthouses, bars and restaurants so you're really spoilt for choice. The one thing lacking that Bangsaphan does have in its favour is a clear blue ocean.
Hua Hin has to be the destination for golfers with seven world class golf courses all within a 40 minute drive from the town center. There are also plenty of other attractions in Hua Hin such as waterfalls, beaches, temples and local markets.
