This is for a good reason, as one can go from the snow and sleet in Newcastle and land in 25 degree weather without a cloud in the sky. Not only is Christmas in Hua Hin right in the middle of Thailand’s dry season, the sun provides ample opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors by day and then relax with a drink in hand by night.

Add that to the spectacular discounts and promotions that are in place around the area every December and this is truly the stuff that dreams are made of.
Surf and Sand
While the beaches in Hua Hin is great year round, it is especially serene during the Christmas season. The surf is calm and peaceful, making it ideal for a boating or jet skiing adventures. The kids can play in the ocean and build sand castles to their hearts content. The entire family can go out snorkeling for a few hours and then return to the shore to relax and soak up some rays. The opportunities in Hua Hin are limited only by interest level and time. Sport lovers can play beach volleyball or football, and those who are a bit more adventurous can take a paragliding journey over the ocean itself. There are also several world-class golf courses strategically located near the sea, so make sure you pack your clubs and enjoy a few rounds over the Christmas Holiday. While many of these opportunities are boarded up in the UK during the winter months, they are at their peak in Hua Hin.
Great Food, Drink, and Nightlife
Seafood lovers will feel that they have been transported to their own little piece of heaven when visiting Hua Hin at Christmas time. From shrimp to fish and almost everything in between, the items you will enjoy for lunch or dinner are fresh and caught daily. You can order your favorite dish to be grilled and seasoned just the way you like and then eat it seaside, on the balcony at your Aleenta Hua Hin Resort room, or at any of a number of restaurants dotting the cities landscape. For the early risers our there, a quick jog down to the ocean will result in pictures of Thai fishermen out early to catch their daily allotment to then deliver it fresh to restaurants around the resort town. After all, Hua Hin was once a sleepy little fishing village back in the day. That tradition remains to this day, along with all of the other benefits that add to the lure. A Christmas dinner here will likely revolve around lobster, so leave the desire for crackling pork back in London. If you must have your meat and mashed potatoes, however, there are plenty of pubs in the area that will appeal to you. A pint of Guinness can be had at a number of locations throughout Hua Hin, and there are several discos to keep you dancing far into the evening.

There are few places on earth that have such a diverse geographical structure. This effectively enhances any trip during the Christmas season, as every day can truly bring a new adventure.
