Find out more HERE to a humble holiday destination in Thailand, Hua Hin.
Located at about 3hr drive away from Bangkok, Hua Hin is in the southern Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Alike Singapore, It has transformed from a quiet fishing village, into a holiday spot even for residents of Bangkok. It was after the 1920s when the Thai royal family built summer palaces here. You can take a stroll down the beach, do wakeboarding, water theme park, shopping and the list just go on and on. A very underrated location for travel in my opinion. I didn’t even know of this “ulu” place until I did some research on new places to travel and write about. Be sure to keep reading for the TOP few must-go places in my opinion.
VANA NAVA WATER JUNGLE
Featuring a few of their proudest arsenal, The AbyssTM, shaped like a giant megaphone, is the world’s largest waterslide and the only one in Thailand. The water park also features the country’s longest slide, Boomerango. Thailand’s first and most thrilling anti-gravity tube-slide goes to the Aqualoop, and the AquaCourse, another first in Thailand, is a challenging course of ropes and obstacles. The tallest man-made mountain waterfall in Asia, Vana Nava Falls, is at 31 meters’ height and is another landmark sight visible from a great distance, together with The AbyssTM.
