Why Hua Hin?

Hua Hin is a seaside resort on the Gulf of Thailand, in the southern Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, only 2.5 hours drive from Bangkok. Once a quiet fishing village, it grew into a fashionable escape for residents of Bangkok after the 1920s, when the Thai royal family built summer palaces here. Hua Hin Beach, popular for kitesurfing and other water sports, is the main stretch of sand, lined with high-end hotels and seafood shacks. Where mountains meet the ocean, a perfect escape for those looking for a peaceful life. With regular buses to Bangkok, the development of the high speed train (cutting the journey to only 45mins) and the new ferry to Pattaya, Hua Hin has quickly become the hub for expats in Thailand. 


The lifestyle in Hua Hin is peaceful and relaxing, with a fine balance of natural beauty and modern luxuries you would expect from a developed city. Beautiful beaches, temples, natural landscapes, and developed infrastructure make this city a wonderful place to live or have a holiday home. Famous for great golf courses, high end developments, beach front condos and a variety of activities, Hua Hin has managed to retain its image of a lovely seaside town and escaped the tourist trappings of Pattaya and Phuket.

The property market in Hua Hin has grown steadily over the last 10 years. Many high end developers and private owners have been inspired by the wonders of this seaside city and made their roots here. Subsequently luxury developments, condominiums and private villas have populated the area, although the natural beauty and environment have been maintained. There is a diverse range of properties available that can suit the budget of anyone looking to relocate to a city in Thailand. From 1 bedroom apartments to luxury 5 bedroom mansions, 2nd-Home can find the right property for you.
