Family Travel Ideas in Hua HinEdit This
Hua Hin is a wonderful place to take the family for a vacation. There are many interesting things to see and do that will keep the little ones and parents entertained.
Several of the resorts and hotels in Hua Hin cater to the family. The 4-star hotel, Courtyard Hua Hin at Cha Am Beach, is one of them. The beach is right there so there are sea views from the rooms. This hotel has KidsWorld, an indoor play area, that will keep your kids occupied for a long time. There is also a large pool with water slides. The resort has a beach side restaurant, a café, spa and fitness center, and you may not need to leave the hotel to have a lot of fun.
If you feel like venturing out, go west toward Pala-U and you will find an elephant village. Here you can see the huge animals in their natural habitat and you can even climb on board for a ride. Guides will give you a good idea of how elephants live because elephants have been important to the Thai people, being the main source of transportation and labor for farming the land for centuries.
There is a small animal park about 10 km north of the city and there is no admission charge. You can observe deer, birds, large turtles, and a variety of friendly monkeys. Some of the animals roam free and visit you as you walk around. Make sure to bring your own picnic because there are spots to have one but there is nowhere nearby to purchase food. A government funded Deer Research Center is located in the park.
Panee Butterfly Farm
Right across the street from Klai Kangwon Palace is the Panee Butterfly Farm where you can see numerous butterflies and tropical birds. The orchids and other tropical plants are beautiful, as well. The farm is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
The beach is the main draw to Hua Hin--and no wonder because it is a 5-mile long beach. Here the family can sit in the sun, play in the sand, swim and participate in other water sports.
Hua Hin is a golfer’s dream, with golf courses everywhere. If your family likes to golf you have come to the right place. Here the green fees and other costs of golfing are the lowest anywhere in the world, so it might be an appropriate time to get the whole family out on a golf course.
Hua Hin gives families the opportunity to have a great vacation together in a warm climate.
