The picturesque seaside town of Hua Hin, Thailand is known for its stunning beaches, burgeoning restaurant scene and small-town feel.
It’s famous as a royal resort, yet the sea breeze and stunning views come cheap in Hua Hin. You’ll find a low cost of living and good-value property.
As in many parts of Thailand, there’s local access to quality, affordable medical care. Most expats seek care at the area’s private hospitals, including the recently opened Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin, a satellite centre of the well-known hospital located in the Thai capital, which is actually just a four-hour drive.
Great shopping, cool restaurants, relaxing cafés and fresh seafood that you can buy right off the boat are all part of a lifestyle in Hua Hin. There is also hiking and camping, world-class golf courses, and, of course, many attractive beaches and islands on your doorstep.
If you’re looking for a laidback lifestyle on the beach that has access to quality healthcare and won’t break the bank, Hua Hin, Thailand might be for you.

Around three hours’ drive from the capital Bangkok, Hua Hin is a tourist hotspot. The town is home to 85,000 full-time residents, but local expats say that figure can double on weekends and holidays. It’s for this very reason that it’s also a great place to retire. Tourists mean shops, restaurants, activities, entertainment and good infrastructure—including three international hospitals with English-speaking staff and plans for a high-speed rail link between the town and Bangkok.
One of the best things about Hua Hin is it’s laidback enough to feel like a beach town, but still has all the modern conveniences of any Western city. You’ll find great shopping, cool restaurants, relaxing cafés and fresh seafood, which you can buy right off the boat. There is also hiking and camping, world-class golf courses and beautiful beaches and islands on your doorstep.
