Bangkok is well-loved for its vibrant city life but perhaps what’s lacking is a beach. As such, Hua Hin (Thailand’s first Bangkok is well-loved for its vibrant city life but perhaps what’s lacking is ready access to a beach. Because of this, Hua Hin (a beach resort frequented by the royal family since the 1920s) has become a popular weekend escape among Bangkokians as it’s just a 2.5-hour drive down South of the capital. If you happen to have extra days on your holiday, we recommend you to make a trip down to Hua Hin to chill at these 3 cafes:
#1 Skoop Beach Cafe Hua Hin
Skoop Beach Cafe Hua Hin was open after the resounding success of its predecessor in Pattaya. It is now widely-regarded as one of the resort town’s must-visits. They are located near the entrance of Khao Takiab, inside Veranda Residence resort.
Even though there are both indoor and outdoor seating, most prefer to ditch the air-conditioned comfort and laze on the bean bags on the sand to get the best pictures.
This beachfront cafe serves all-day breakfast, offering both sweet and savoury options. Some of the most popular items include waffles and ice cream, tailor-made to delight both your sweet palate and your envious friends travelling with you via your Instagram feed.
