What is the weather like in Hua Hin in February?

You will be pleased to hear that February is one of the cooler months of the year, but remember this is still Thailand and 25 or 26 degrees celsius is not uncommon. The sea breeze at this time of year will help cool you down and keep the humidity at bay.

Where do I fly to?

There are direct flights available from Kuala Lumpur to Hua Hin. However if flying from Kuala Lumpur is not an option you must fly into either BKK (Suvarnabhumi) or DMK (Don Mueang) International Airports.

2. Fly into BKK or DMK and catch a taxi or limo down to Hua Hin – must be arranged personally.

3. Fly into BKK or DMK and catch the X2 Convoy down to the beach house. The X2 Convoy is by far the most fun way to arrive. More details on the convoy coming later.
