Hua Hin Attractions 2019
Coffee in Hua Hin
All sightseeing, especially in humid and sticky weather, requires some level of caffeine. The coffee scene in Hua Hin is growing and thriving. There are some great cafes popping up along this relaxed coastline.
Visiting cafes can be a Hua Hin attraction in itself. If you’re into art and design, Ronin Capsule cafe is a great place to stop, look at some art, immerse yourself in the local creative vibe in Hua Hin and get some coffee of course.
Ronin Cafe has a Tokyo cafe vibe. It feels as though you could find it in the backstreets of Harjuku or Omotosando in Tokyo.

Kite surfing in Hua Hin
Maybe not on everyone’s Hua Hin attraction list, it’s definitely worth walking down to the beach to check it out.
When it’s kitesurfing season, October to May, the beach landscape comes alive with the moving arches of the kites. It’s quite a view and fun to watch. Take some pics. Go for a walk. See some jellyfish washed up on the shore and then head to one of the beachfront restaurants for a light lunch.
If you’re interested in trying kitesurfing during your visit to Hua Hin, there are some great kitesurfing schools. There are two main ones in Hua Hin and both are similar in price and reputation. You’ll need about 3-4 lessons before you can head out by yourself. Both schools also offer kids classes.
Kitesurfing is a great attraction in Hua Hin for adults and kids seeking some extra fun during their vacation.
History in Hua Hin
There’s an interesting history in Hua Hin that will add more to your experience and understanding of Thai culture. The royal family call Hua Hin home during summer. Their current summer residence is located in Hua Hin. This one is closed to the public, but there is one palace that is no longer used by the royal family and is open to the public.
Palaces in Hua Hin
Mrigadaygavan Palace should be on everyone’s Hua Hin to see and do list and is definitely an attraction worth visiting in 2019. It’s located along the coast and a relatively quiet spot to sightsee in and learn about Thai culture, history and the royal family.
The palace itself is one of the longest teak buildings in the world. It was designed by the king who brought in an Italian architect to complete the designs. The king was also a poet and had an area where he would write in the palace.
You can also take a seat in their cafe and enjoy a casual high tea experience with Thai sweets as you look out to the manicured gardens and ocean in the distance.
