The best time to fly to Hua Hin is during the cooler season of November to February. However for sun worshippers the hot season running from March to May would suit with temperatures reaching over 86 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s also the rainy season from June to October where it rains for about one hour then the sun comes out. Enjoy the Jazz Festival in June, the Vintage Car Rally which takes place in December or the splendid Kite Festivals during March, April and May.
One of the cheapest times to take a flight to Hua Hin is during the rainy season which falls in June until December. At this time there aren’t many people around which makes hotel, bed and breakfast or self-catering vacations cheaper than usual. It’s a good idea to take the family outside of school vacations or when there’s a national holiday as accommodation is reasonably priced.

Getting from the Airport to the City
There’s a variety of transport options to get to downtown Hua Hin from the airport (HHQ), 15 minutes north of town. Do make a point of bartering the fare if you are using a taxi although meter taxis usually have a fixed rate. It’s good fun bartering especially when you can save a few baht. If you take a songthaew, a red, two bench seated pick up truck or a tuk tuk, make sure to agree a price before you get in.
