For more than a hundred years, the seaside town of Hua Hin has served as a convenient and welcome getaway for the residents of Bangkok, as well as Thailand’s royal family. Surrounded by the Gulf of Thailand on one side and several national parks inland, the town is a mecca for those who want to enjoy the beach and the region’s natural beauty. What started out as a quiet fishing village has grown into a tourist attraction, which still manages to retain its charm and its peaceful atmosphere.
To see the area in all its natural beauty, it’s worth spending a day or two on the beaches or hiking the many trails in the national parks surrounding the town. To ensure you’re ready to enjoy yourself the next day, Let’s Relax Spa has two locations in Hua Hin, offering massages and a range of spa treatments.
Treating yourself to a massage and spa treatment or two in Hua Hin at the end of a busy day will ensure that you get a good night’s sleep. It will also help to keep your skin well-hydrated and lessen any damage from the tropical sun.
The town boasts two water parks with an extensive variety of wave pools, lazy rivers, and thrilling rides and slides. One of the parks has a lake with an endless overhead tow rope where you can spend the whole day wakeboarding and water-skiing.
Hua Hin is also the premier destination for kitesurfing enthusiasts in Thailand. If you want to try this exciting sport, there are a couple of kitesurfing schools that will have you skimming across the waves in no time.
But you don’t have to get wet to enjoy the scenery along the beaches. A walk along the beach as the sun’s coming up over the Gulf of Thailand is the perfect way to start your day. There are also several bicycle rental shops in town. Spend the day cycling along the shore and stopping in for refreshments at cafés and restaurants that capture your fancy along the way. At the end of the day, stop in for a soothing massage at either of the two Let’s Relax Spa locations in Hua Hin. After a full day playing on the water in Hua Hin, you’re bound to be in the mood for a massage!
There are several enchanting national parks to the west side of Hua Hin filled with caves, waterfalls, and a variety of wildlife. They’re also filled with kilometres of well-groomed trails that provide a day of adventure for the whole family.
Be sure to wear proper hiking footwear when visiting these national parks because some of the trails will lead you up and down mountains and beside waterfalls where the terrain can be slippery and rough. Carry plenty of water and sunscreen with you as well. Guides are available for hire in some of the parks in the area, and they can lead you to some of the prime areas for catching a glimpse of the rarer wildlife species in the region.
When the day’s hiking is over, you might appreciate the relief a foot reflexology massage back in Hua Hin can provide. Reflexology is an ancient Chinese technique that uses specific areas of the feet to stimulate and heal other areas of the body.
While your feet are being massaged and recovering from a day of hiking, you’ll also enjoy an increase in your blood circulation, a boost to your immune system and restoration of your body’s energy balance.
Hua Hin is the ideal destination for active families to enjoy a holiday or a weekend getaway. The town is also famous for its seafood and artist’s colony, so there are plenty of restaurants to visit, as well as lots of galleries and art exhibits to see.
Enjoying massage and spa treatments at the two Hua Hin Let’s Relax Spa locations will keep you in good shape for making the most of all the exciting activities available in and around this magical seaside destination.
