Hua Hin remains one of the best hidden gems in Thailand. One thing that is often overlooked is what the name “Hua Hin” means in Thai. Literally translated, “Hua” means “head”, and “Hin” means “stone” or “rock”. The town was named after the rocky ocean shores you can find on the main Hua Hin beach in front of the Centara Grand Hotel. This is where the name Stonehead Real Estate derives from.
