How To Move Around Hua Hin When You Travel For Holidays? It is fairly easy to move around the beach town and explore by foot. For us girls, we wanted to cram as much as possible in our day so, we limited our walks to the German Bakery for our daily breakfast. The adventurous and energetic would prefer to drive or ride around town.
Bicycles are an excellent mode of transport and can be rented at many places for about 30 baht an hour or 150 baht for the day. Some hotels have bicycles for hire. Do check with the reception.

When using tuk-tuks, be sure to negotiate your fare before hopping on board.
