MARUEK KHATHAYAWAN SUMMER PALACE

Place : Maruekhathaiyawan Summer Seaside Palace

Location : 9 km south of Cha-Am at the Camp Rama VI military coumpound

Open Hour : 08:00 am. - 16:00 pm.

Descriptions : Like so much in Hua Hin, this summer seaside palace was built in the early 1920s during the reign of King Rama VI. It was designed by an Italian architect and features lots of verandas, latticework and covered boardwalks using golden teak from the demolished Hat Chao Samran Palace. The beautiful passage from them leading to the sea is one of the many charming features of the complex.

HUA HIN RAILWAY STATION

Place : Hua Hin Railway Station
Location : Western end of Damnernkasem Road

Open Hours : 07:00 am. - 23:00 pm.

Descriptions : Built during the reign of King Rama VI, and only a short distance from the centre of town, Hua Hin's railway station and adjacent royal waiting room are undeniably attractive. The brightly painted wooden buildings that are Thai in concept and design somehow manage to have a 'Victorian' feel to them. Even if you don't arrive at the resort by train, go and have a look. It’s charming, quirky and photogenic.

PHRAYA NAKHON CAVE

Place : Phraya Nakhon Cave, Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park

Location : 60 km south of Hua Hin, in Guiburi, Prachaub Kirikhand
Open Hours : -

Descriptions : The magnificent Phraya Nakhon Cave is one of the most mystical and mysterious landmarks of Thailand but only a few travellers get a chance to take a picture of it. The reason is simple: this gold and green pavilion is hidden inside a hard to reach cave and only a handful of dedicated visitors will do the effort to visit it. Those who do are rewarded with a stunning vision that looks like it's straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. Phraya Nakhon Cave is located in the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, a 45 minutes drive south of Hua Hin. First step to reach the cave is to drive to the small village of Bang Pu located by the beach, and from there decide if you'd rather rent a boat to take you around the cape to Laem Sala beach, or walk a 30 minutes trek above the hill leading to the same Laem Sala beach.
