Hua Hin (หัวหิน) traces its aristocratic roots to Protected content the railroad arrived from Bangkok and some in the royal family built vacation homes here. By the mid Protected content it was a full-fledged resort town for the Bangkok-based nobility with a golf course and a seaside hotel featuring a European restaurant manager. Even Kings Rama VI and VII built summer palaces here. The latter's Phra Ratchawang Klai Kangwon (Far from Worries Palace) remains a royal residence today and was the full-time home of King Rama IX for many of his later years.
There’s a lot of money swirling around Hua Hin, but it's still a good budget destination: seafood is plentiful and cheap, there’s convenient public transport and it takes a lot less time and effort to get here from Bangkok than to the southern islands.

The Road leading to Pa La-U Waterfall is stunning, as the road winds over the Kaeng Krachan National Park Mountains and it is not unusual to see trampled down trees by the side of the road after wild Elephants has walked through and if you are lucky you can even see this majestic animals idling on the road.

The Pal La-U Waterfall has 5 levels that are open to the public, the first few are easy to reach but the rest can get a bit treacherous so we will start with the first two levels; later decide to proceed if it gets more slippery and/or challenging to climb. There is small local stalls at the base of the Waterfall and we can do a little picnic after trekking and swimming.
