Hua Hin Dress Code

In most areas, casual clothes are acceptable. However, despite the climate, topless sunbathing or swimming is not OK for women. It is more common to swim in your casual clothes. Moreover, temples are held in high regards by the Thais, so there is a strict dress code; flip flops, shorts, sleeveless shirts etc. are prohibited.

Hua Hin Language

Thai is the main language in Thailand. Though dialects vary in different destinations, Thai is still commonly understandable. In major tourist hotspots, like Thailand beaches and in some Thailand hotels, many of the locals can also speak English, but it is better to write your destination down a piece of paper, or ask your concierge at the Hua Hin hotel to write down in Thai for you.

Health Facilities

Hospitals in Hua Hin are the equivalent of those in many western cities. Intensive care units are fully equipped and staffed by well trained doctors to handle emergencies.
