What is the local currency and where can I exchange money?
The local currency is Thai Baht (THB) and you can exchange money at the airports, any of the local banks, at currency exchange kiosks in town and, of course, here at the resort.
How do I get from the airport to the resort?
You can book an airport transfer with the resort or catch a taxi or airport limousine from either of Bangkok’s airports (BKK or DMK). From Suvarnabhumi (BKK) there is also a bus that runs direct to the north side of Hua Hin, from there you can take a local taxi or arrange for the hotel to bring you to the resort.
For hotel cars, please book in advance so we can be there waiting for you.
For taxis / limos from the airports, you can arrange upon arrival.
The bus to Hua Hin departs from Level 1, Gate 8. There are departures every 90-minutes from 07:30 until 19:30, you can book tickets on line here

Is it safe to walk into and around town?
Walking to True Arena is possible, about 15-min (1.4km).
Walking into town would be quite far (~5km); we suggest our hotel shuttle or a taxi. Once in town, yes, it is safe to walk around, just remember to look both ways before and while you cross a street; motorcycle drivers are notorious for driving the wrong way and even on footpaths.
What is the weather like?
Hua Hin has fairly consistent temperatures year round, generally has a nice ocean breeze and has less annual rain than other beach destinations in Thailand.
Temperatures rarely get beyond the mid 30s (C) and generally average 26-30 °C during the day and a very pleasant 22-25 °C at night.
The driest months are Dec - Apr and the wettest are May, Nov and Oct (in that order). During the annual monsoon (rainy season) from late Sep until the end of Nov, you can expect spectacular thunderstorms for an hour or two per day; it seldom rains all day and you will often have sunshine before and / or after a storm.
Due be aware that the monsoon brings many jellyfish to shore; swimming in the sea during this period is not advised nor is touching jellies that the tides have left behind on the beach; look but don’t touch!
