Hua Hin Citizens treat tourists with a share of curiosity and respect, especially those who are interested in the local culture. It isn’t difficult to gain their favour; it is enough to learn several simple phrases and not to forget accepted norms of behavior. During a walk through the city don’t talk and laugh loudly.
