Pleasant half-day outing from Hua Hin
Christopher_D

It takes one hour to get by car from Hua Hin to Petchaburi palace. There is a nice view from windows of the palace located on the hill and you get there by cable car. The palace itself is not particularly jaw dropping: only several sparsely furnished rooms and you cannot take pictures inside. Dress code is strictly enforced. Shoulders and knees have to be covered. If your shorts are too short guys you will,have to pull them down to cover the knees and if it is impossible you will have to rent a thin blanket for a few baht. After the palace you drive to a nearby temple which is OK. but pretty middle of the road for Thailand. The most interesting is the last attraction - the “royal cave” with countless golden Buddhas but be prepared for a 100 step walk down to the cave and then the same 100 steps up to get out. Not a huge challenge but definitely not for older or disabled people, especially on a hot, sticky day. The trip ends with a nice lunch included in your price at one of the hotels in town. Our guide was pleasant and informative. We were back in our hotel around 2 pm. Overall a nice side trip from Hua Hin once you got your fill of the beach and shopping malls in town.

Dear cdabski We really appreciate your review of our operated excursion through the twin tows of Hua Hin and Cha-am. It has been a pleasure reading that you enjoyed seeing these 2 favourite beach destinations away from your sunbed or shopping centre. The comments you made about the dress code are absolutely spot on! Not honouring the strict dress code as outlined by Palace officials may result in denied entry. Once again, we appreciate reviewing our half-day tour option along the coast of the Gulf of Thailand in a positive light and to highlight taking the dress code seriously for future visitors. With kind regards Asian Trails Thailand

The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was extremely hot and required a lot of uphill and downhill walking. Due to the heat and humidity two members of our group could not go down to the cave of Khao Luang. The tour information should include a warning about the temperature and strenuous walking.
