Glistening brightly along the coast of the Gulf of Siam is the Hua Hin Grand Plaza in Thailand. The easiest way to approach the locality from Bangkok is by air and it is easy to spot this tall white hued building even at a distance. The chic and sophisticated shopping complex cum hotel has been the cynosure of all for more than half a century and continues to command most of the attention in the town.
The city of Hua Hin where the plaza is located is never short of activity, thus you will find a day market to meander through during daylight and the nocturnal few will be delighted to know of the night market, both of which are located in proximity to each other. The city reeks of history that dates back to the early years of the 20th century, when it inherited the name ‘Far from Worries’ and ‘Paradise City’. The lone concrete structure at the time was the Klai Klangwon Palace, which remains the residence of the royal family even to date. However, with the passage of time the area along the coast has evolved into a developed business district.
The Hua Hin Grand Plaza is one of the many tourist attractions in the area that offers a plethora of shopping opportunities and a string of restaurants and cafes to choose from to satiate the wildest shopping fantasies and the most unquenchable of appetites. There is live entertainment at night, which includes a mixture of truly Siamese and capriciously Western entertainment. Though the centre was initially patronized by the aristocrats and other dignitaries, the doors have now opened out even to the common man with a penchant for shopping, dining and relaxing.
It is not difficult to find accommodation in this locality where coconut palms dot the coastline along with several beach hotels Hua Hin Thailand. In fact the favoured shores extend to the north and south both, therefore even if you miss the opportunity at Hua Hin hotels there are dozens more to choose from. Anantara Hua Hin Thailand Resort is among the best destinations, which usually receives preference at the time of selection.
