What do I need to know before retiring in Hua Hin?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Hua Hin, they said...

"Before retiring in Hua Hin, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is generally lower than in other parts of the country. It is important to research the local healthcare system and ensure that adequate medical coverage is in place. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs, as well as the language, to ensure a smooth transition. It is also important to research the local laws and regulations to ensure that all activities are in compliance. Finally, expats should consider the climate and weather in Hua Hin, as it can be quite hot and humid during the summer months," explained one expat living in Hua Hin, Thailand.

"First, you need to have an independent source of income. To secure a one-year visa here you need to have about $23,000 held in a Thai bank or show proof of at least $1,800 in monthly income. Second, Hua Hin is somewhat difficult to get to, as you have to fly into Bangkok and then take a bus for 3 hours to Hua Hin. As to what to bring, Hua Hin has most, if not all, of what you will need. Western-style housing, food, clothes, appliances, etc., are all available. And while Hua Hin has some party areas, the town is pretty quiet, as you would expect from a primarily retirement community," said another expat in Hua Hin, Thailand.
