SPORT AND LEISURE
Mountain bikes roll effortlessly along the flat, quiet roads of Hua Hin. Zipping past a massive golden Buddha sitting peacefully by the roadside, surrounded by gorgeous limestone hills covered with lush forest. We stop for a moment to watch a group of curious macaque monkeys and then continue a few more kilometres. A road stall displaying fresh pineapples announces it’s time for a break.
Well-known for its spectacular sunrises, Hua Hin’s main beach is a 4km white, sandy strip that fringe the Gulf of Thailand, and stretches from the town centre to Khao Takiap. As a result it is never over-crowded, so no better way than starting your day with a beach run.
Horse riding on the beach
Hua Hin is one of the few places in Thailand where you can go horse riding along the beach. For children there are ponies at both Hua Hin and Cha-Am’s beaches, as well as proper horses for adults. These are not wild horses that will gallop off at terrifying speeds leaving clouds of dust behind – they’re very tame and well trained to offer visitors an enjoyable experience.
Hua Hin is a great place to learn how to sail with its perfect wind conditions all year round. Hua Hin Sailing Club is a family club where everyone can learn to sail from 8 – 80 years. But it’s about much more than just sailing. It’s a great place on the beach with cool shade, trendy bar and a laid back atmosphere.
