Getting Around

Hua Hin is small enough to walk around, but if you want your own transport motobikes can be hired for 200B per day - discounts are available if you hire one for more than a day. Motorcycle taxis are available for short rides around town. Prices will start at about 20B, but bargain hard. The motorcycle taxi boys will definitely inflate prices without hesitation.
