Hua Hin & Cha Am Royalty and Culture Tour

Hua Hin & Cha Am
Royalty and Culture Tour

Uncover Hua Hin’s royal connections at the quaint railway station
and at a beautiful park honouring past kings. Meet mischievous
macaques and discover sacred places full of history and culture.


Once a sleepy fishing village, Hua Hin’s royal endorsement began at the turn of the 20th century, when Prince Chakrabongse stumbled upon this idyllic location during a hunting trip. By the 1920s, Hua Hin had become the favourite holiday retreat for the Thai royal family, who came here for the serenity, endless beaches and cool sea air.

During this time, Hua Hin’s railway station was built, making the area even more accessible and more attractive to visitors. This exploration tour takes you to places connected with the royals, including an impressive historical park honouring past kings. You will also visit important landmarks and temples – sacred sites beloved by the locals and Buddhist pilgrims.

12:00 - 17:00

Our day of discovery starts at Khao Takiab, a hilly outcrop that juts out into the sea at the far end of Hua Hin beach. It is also known as ‘monkey mountain’ for the many mischievous macaques that roam the area. Dominating this small mountain is a 20-metre-tall standing Buddha that looks out over the water. You can photograph this commanding Buddha and take in the sweeping views of the beautiful stretch of beach.

Visit Rajabhakti Park, a historical park built to honour the great kings of Thailand. There are seven 14-metre-high bronze statues depicting great kings from the period of Sukhothai to the current royal house of Chakri. Standing in line against a backdrop of hills, these commanding sculptures are an impressive sight.

At Huay Mongkol Temple you can view the enormous statue of the famous Thai monk, Luang Phor Thuate. Located in a beautiful green park, the statue is almost 12 metres tall and features the monk seated in a meditation position. Many myths and legends surround this revered monk as he is believed to have performed many miracles centuries ago, including turning sea water into fresh water.

Your tour will end at Hua Hin Railway Station. Built in the reign of King Rama VI in a mixture of Thai and Victorian styles, it is one of the most elegant and oldest stations in Thailand. Its most striking feature is the ornate Royal Waiting Room, which was used to receive the king when he visited Hua Hin.

At the end of the tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel.
