Wildlife Friends Foundation

WFFT was founded in 2001 by Edwin Wiek with the help of the local people from Petchaburi province, including the Abbot of Wat Khao Look Chang who loaned a large piece of land to the foundation to house rescued animals. WFFT is a NGO (non-governmental organisation). We receive help from other animal protection organisations such as the International Primary Protection League (IPPL), Free The Bears, and Care for the Wild International, as well as many individuals with a passion for change.

Tham Khao Luang Cave

One of the most beautiful and inspiring temples of Thailand. The light that filters from the top of the cave and falls on the golden Buddha is enlightening and creates a mystical atmosphere that will leave you breathless. It is very unique and not often visited by tourists, so if you happen to discover it, you can explore it almost solo or share it with very few people. If you are soul searching, the place is the perfect site for peace and concentration.

Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park

The park consists of three building groups on the three peaks of the 95 m hill. On the western peak is the palace with adjoining structures. On the middle or central peak is a big chedi named Phra That Chom Phet. The eastern peak houses the Wat Phra Kaeo, the royal temple, built in similar fashion to the Wat Phra Kaeo in Bangkok. The whole complex was built as a summer palace by King Mongkut, with construction finished in 1860.

The site was registered as a historical park on 27 August 1979, with two of the palace buildings now housing a branch of the Thai National Museum.

Phraya Nakhon Cave

Phraya Nakhon Cave is a must see. If timed properly (10am precisely), you may experience the wonderment of the sun’s rays pouring in over the hidden Thai pavilion.

Water Parks

At Hua Hin we have not one but three water parks for you to choose from.
Vana Nawa
Santorini Park
Black Mountain

Wat Huay Mongkol

This Buddhist temple is home to the world’s largest statue of Luang Phor Thuad, a legendary southern Thai monk revered for his enlightenment and ability to perform miracles. Many believe that the amulets created in his image guarantee safety in times of distress. The statue, set within a park-like setting that attracts many visitors each weekend, was commissioned by HM Queen Sirikit and is the first thing you see when approaching Hua Hin from Highway 4 (heading to Prachuab Kirikhand). Sitting in the meditation pose, it looms overhead once you arrive on the worship ground.

Ratchapak Park

Also known as Rajabhakti Park, Ratchapak Park is a historically themed park that honours Thai kings of the past from the Sukhothai period to the current Chakri royal house. With three distinct areas, the park is vast and very much worth the trip. The first area is dominated by the statues of seven notable kings of Thailand. Each bronze statue was designed by Thailand’s Fine Arts Department.

Maruekhathaiyawan Palace Cha-Am

A royal palace and former holiday villa of King Vajiravudh, the Maruekhathaiyawan Palace was built as the residence of a former king. The beautiful architecture is what attracts thousands of visitors every year. With its 16 buildings made of teak, raised by different concrete pillars, and linked by a number of walkways throughout the palace, this is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to visit Hua Hin, Thailand.
