Hua Hin (Thai หัวหิน) is a famous beach resort town in Thailand, in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula, some 200 km south of Bangkok. It has a population of 84,883 in an area of 911 km², and is one of eight districts (Amphoe) of the Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

Hua Hin is closely associated with the Thai royalty. Merely 25 kilometers apart, Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province enjoys a wealth of satellite attractions; prominent among them are national parks and historical cities.

Hua Hin is a well-established beach destination, with full facilities for the tourist. Unlike Pattaya on the other side of the Gulf of Thailand, Hua Hin provides a quieter, more relaxed environment, with a typically Thai ambience.
