What is unique about the Swiss Sheep Farm in Hua Hin is that it creates a beautiful picture of a European farm amidst the Thai landscape. The natural beauty of Thailand integrates with the European structures and elements which offer tourists a very authentic experience.
There is a lot of thought which has gone into the making of the Sheep farm; it embraces the culture of Switzerland and recreates a space that looks a lot like a farm you will find in Europe. It is refreshingly different to the kind of tourist attractions you will find in Hua Hin. The farm is located in Phetchaburi which is 200km from Bangkok.
The distinctly Swiss-like features at this farm are the herd of sheep grazing on the valley, the windmill structure, stacks of hay, horse driven carriages and wild ponies. Visitors are allowed to take pictures with the sheep and even pet them. The cottage like atmosphere is ideal for some fun photographs; there are cartoon figures of sheep with their wide smiles, large boots and trucks that you can pose with. Also you can arrange for a pre-wedding photo shoot at this location.
The scenery and the atmosphere are perfect for some outdoor photography. If you are coming in as a couple there are some fun activities to participate in. The couples pony ride, hanging the key of love and a carriage ride across the farm. You can even opt to be the shepherd for a few hours and feed the animals and get involved in farming activities.
For snacks and food there is a cosy café that serves delicious deserts, sweets and hot coffee. The premises is open from 9 am to 6pm. Tickets are around 30 Baht per person so it’s well worth the visit. There are several other attractions that you can explore in this area.
If you are planning to travel in the Malay peninsula of Thailand then you should reside in one of the Hua Hin hotels. There are quite a few beach hotels Hua Hin Thailand that offer amazing villas, luxury suites and rooms. Anantara Hua Hin Thailand Resort, for instance, has great spa facilities, a golf course and a range of rooms overlooking the beautiful ocean.
