A long-time favorite of Thai royalty and weekenders travelling from Bangkok, the famous beach town is adding some alluring new strings to its bow

Lying two-and-a-half hours southwest of Bangkok, Hua Hin has long-standing regal connections, seaside-resort allure and upstanding character that have given the town a lofty reputation among weekending capital dwellers and overseas visitors.
