Hua Hin offers so much more than simply the beach and if you look around you can find some hidden gems that are definitely worth exploring. Take the area around Falcon Hill for example, despite being within city limits you are surrounded by countryside and forested hills with ample opportunities for cycling and walking.
The road that leads to Falcon Hill from the main road is called ‘Soi 102’, in English this means street 102. Soi 102 is easily accessed from Phet Kasem Road (the road that runs through Hua Hin) and contains a number of 7/11 of convenience stores and restaurants with the newly opened Blu Port Shopping Mall providing residents with easy access to the cinema, restaurants and western groceries.
Directly across the main road from Soi 102 is the beach – access is possible through some specific access roads or through one of the many hotels and restaurants that line the beach side of the road. Many people enjoy the walk from Falcon Hill in the early morning or late afternoon and if you don’t fancy walking back cheap taxis are plentiful.
For those who like to maintain an active lifestyle the opportunities in Hua Hin are almost endless. Following a government initiative more and more cycle lanes are being added enabling cyclists to enjoy a pleasant ride away from motorised vehicles. Cycling is also becoming very popular with Thai people, following HM the King of Thailand’s ‘Bike for Dad’ program which encouraged the Thai people to take up cycling for health. There are also numerous gyms and sports clubs within minutes of Falcon Hill with tennis, badminton, pickleball, football and floorball having established clubs within the town. Falcon Hill’s Project Manager is a keen sportsman who seems to play everything, so if you want to join a club or partake in any kind of activity, he’s the man to speak to!
