Hua Hin is no longer the best-kept secret for a small number of expats and retirees, so much so the CNN Money just last year named it the number one location in the world to retire.
If you are here in holiday you will only scratch the surface for what makes it such a popular place to retiree. The city has also begun quite an ambitious development programme that sees better infrastructure links that include a planned high-speed train from Bangkok.
What Hua Hin offers retirees is a year round warm climate, fresh air (there is no industry allowed in the region), wonderful beaches, golf courses, a good selection of restaurants and shopping; and, of course, that warm Thai culture.
So, if you are visiting Hua Hin on holiday this time round, who knows – maybe sometime in the future this could be the place you make home and retirement paradise!
