Rockey Hua Hin, Rockey Beach!

Sandy_Beach_Sight_at_HuahinHua Hin is famous beach resort town in Thailand, located in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula. It has a population of 73,177 over the area of 911 km², geographical location 12°34′N 99°57′E some 200 Km south of Bangkok, Thailand, and is one of 8 district (Amphoe) of the Prachuap Khiri Khan province. Rocky_Beach_Sight_at_Huahin Hua Hin is unlike any other beach resort in Thailand. If you're looking for bright lights and the frantic all-night action of cabarets and discos, you may be disappointed here. However, if you enjoy walks through the quiet winding streets of a friendly coastal village, sampling delicious seafood in restaurants overlooking the brightly lit fishing boats on the Gulf of Thailand or a round of golf on one of the several international standard links, Hua Hin could very well be what you're looking for; Hua Hin has a special character all its own. Hua Hin became popular as a rainy season retreat in the 1920's with the construction of the railway line from Bangkok. The beautiful, colonial style Railway Hotel was built near Hua Hin's famous rocks in 1923 by the State Railway Authority, which also built Thailand's first public golf course in Hua Hin in 1924. In 1926, King Rama VII built the Klai Kangwon (Far From Worries) Palace on the beach a few km north of the Railway Hotel and this palace is still frequently used by the Royal Family. This set the stage for Hua Hin's popularity and unique ambiance which remains to this day. The_Sky_Sight_at_Huahin
