Health

Hua Hin is not only a popular retirement destination, but an all round holiday/party destination too, so its no surprise that the medical and health facilities are first rate. Webster’s blog team has done a little research to save you all some time. With thanks to Thai Visa who have compiled a great page on Dentists in Hua Hin, and ExpatHuaHin who wrote a great list for doctors, clinics and hospitals.

Learning Thai

It can be very easy to fall back on English language, especially places like Hua Hin where most Thai’s can speak English thanks to the annual hordes of tourists and expats that visit this bustling seaside town. But to truly understand Thailand, and more importantly, to truly understand Thai people, then you should learn to speak Thai. Even a few words will go a long way, and you will reap the rewards over those that don’t make the effort.
There is a wide range of options in Hua Hin to learn Thai, from the Thai Language Centre (Hua Hin) to one-to-one Private Thai Lessons, while others prefer to buy one of the hundreds of books on offer and just dive straight in, learning from your mistakes as you go. There is no right or wrong way, the important thing is you’re making the effort, and the Thai’s will appreciate you for it.

Transport

Sawadee.com has written a great list of Hua Hin Transport advice, from buses, cars, renting bikes, catching Tuk Tuk’s, Taxi’s and Boat’s.
