Peace and Relaxation
Hua Hin, Thailand
This popular place 3.5km to the south is a fun mix of food, shopping and performing arts. It's a very relaxed shopping experience. Many artists come to sell their handmade home decor and clothes, and there's food from Thailand and beyond. Live entertainment hits the stage from 8.30pm and there are buskers all around.
The centre cares for over 500 animals, including bears, tigers, gibbons, macaques, loris and birds, as well as an elephant rescue program. A visit here is a great day out. The centre offers full-access tours introducing animals and discussing rescue histories.
Khao Tao accompanies an scenic and peaceful cove where Sai Noi beach is located. The sea in the beach provides a rare opportunity for deep-water swimming.
Located 12km north of Hua Hin, Mrigadayavan Palace was built in 1924 during the reign of Rama VI. Set in a beautiful garden with statuesque trees and stunning sea views.
Tawee Kasangam established this artist collective to showcase the works of over a dozen artists who opted out of Bangkok’s fast-paced art world in favour of Hua Hin’s more relaxed atmosphere and scenic landscape of mountains and sea.
