in Hua Hin, Thailand, Travel

Hua Hin longstay / Thailand

Best place for long stay in SouthEast Asia.

Kitesurfing. There is good wind all year round. If you check the windguru and see no wind, it does not mean there is none 🙂 it is because it is ‘thermal’ wind and it pickups 10-11am. March/April is best for beginners as the tide is low in these months.
Thai Cooking course – enyoyed it. You understand basic Thai kitchen and understand what you eat.
CICADA Market – The market is opened Friday to Sunday, but i recommend visiting it on Sunday, because other two days it is too crowdy. You can have a dinner here also. (Next to Hyatt hotel. BTW, Hyatt hotel food is average)
The views for first timers in Asia can be shocking. Buy majority of seafood is delivered to Bangkok from here
Watch Muay Thai competition
Boxing Garden Arena (20/23 Poonsuk Road, few hundred meters from Hilton hotel) every tuesday and saturday from 21.00. Cost around 350 THB
in same center also you can hire a personal Muay Thai trainer – highly recommend. Best cardio training
National park – 20km south of Hua Hin.
It is more confortable to go with sneakers and not flip-flops as you have to do a little climbing. Also recommend going with motorbike and not taking a guided tour.
Green Papaya salad – ask to make it not spicy (in Phuket, Pataya they make it not spicy). (Mai Phet) 30THB in the street and 200-300 THB in restaurant. Also i believe they bring it from the street to the restaurant with a 1000% margin 🙂
in the main street for 30 THB
on main Hua Hin road
Chicken Cashwenut (Kau pat, mi mimong)
Mango StickyRice

Pad Thai (Thai noodles with chicken, shrimps or vegetables)
Ocean Club (Putahracsa hotel) (North Hua Hin) best restaurant Hua Hin
Restaurant Lets See – Khao Takiab, good place to have a drink and eat non-fish dishes.
DEYA DELI recommend (located in Villa Market shopping center, which is quite expensive, but you can find a lot of european food there. 
Rent of motorbike 3000-4000 THB a month.
Transfer from BKK airport to Hua Hin 2000-3000 THB
There is direct flight with local airline to Chiang Mai
Bangkok hospital
Bangkok hospital – highly recommend. Best hospital i have ever seen compared to Germany and USA private hospitals.
General checkup costs ±100 usd.
Has all the latest equipment.
Cha-Am – not recommend. Phuket, Pataya – don’t go 🙂
Real Estate Agencies in Hua Hin

Renting property for 1-2 months is quite expensive on AirBnB, which is suited for daily rentals, therefor it is much better to find local Real Estate agency. 

I have stayed in villas and condominiums and i prefer smaller condo on the beach to big villa few kilometers from the beach

Here is a map with all Condos in Hua Hin

I have stayed in these places in Hua Hin:
Khao Tao lake house

We rented a property 12km from city center of Hua Hin next to the lake Khao Tao from Room by Room real estate agency.

I would recommend this house if you are coming for 2 week vacation, where you just want sunbathe, swim, sleep, eat. If you want more activities like yoga, muay thai or fine dining you won’t find that in Khao Tao. We used to drive 1-2 times each day to city center with motobike, which takes 15-20minutes.

The price was around 2000 usd for the house.

Here are some my made pictures from the house:

Bann Chomview

Located in quite street of Hua Hin close to Cicada Market. Most of the units are owned by people from Bangkok, therefor only on weekends there are 5-8 apartments with people. The time i lived all the week there was one neighbour from Germany living with his Thai girlfriend. Has a decent free tennis court. For 2 bedroom apartment we have paid 1300 USD / month including cleaning once a week + electricity and water.

Negative thing: few kitchen appliances. No dishwasher – in Thailand only apartments that are owned by europeans usually do not have this. Also the pool is rather cold. (i guess because the building is tall and it doesn’t have evening sun on it)

Rented from Hua Hin thai property. Mr Gon

Baan Sandao condo

Centrally located condo in Hua Hin. Just in front of big shopping center Villa Market. We have stayed in this condo for 2 months. 1 month in a 2 bedroom and 1 month in 3 bedroom. Both rented from same company. (other recommended real estate agencies in Hua Hin)

The building consist of 5 sectors: ABCDE

A building is 1 apartment per floor with 3-4 bedrooms. (but i never saw this for rent)

BCD buildings are 5 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartments per floor.

E building has 1-3 bedrooms apartments.


Do not stay in first floor. As going from street or building E you go through the middle of first floor.

Try renting North facing apartments as they have direct sunlight in the morning only.

December 1st to January 15th there is a loud concert in Village Market shopping centre and this you hear even in Building B (north side) which is closest to the sea. Building E additionally hears the noise from the street and traffic

My general recommendation is that Baan Sanpluen which is very similiar to Baan Sandao is a better choice because of the noise. (Baan sandao has 2 empty plots in both sides of building and baan sanpluen has other 2 condos which reduces the noise)

Address for mailing of the condo is: (google give different address)

Baan Sandao Condo
119/10 Petchakasem Road, Hua Hin, Prachuab Kirikhan
