Located about 20km from our Center, this place will bring out of time with many different artists that paint, sculpt and play with materials. As usual, art is expensive but sometimes it worth it, we let you judge of this.
Biking & walking
Walking is a good idea to relax and visit around. The Center is located at the beginning of this 5km beautiful beach. It is very quiet and you can find yourself totally alone on this bay. Don’t panic, just enjoy this moment just for you J.
There is a lake just behind the Center which is part of a Royal project. A running way was made all around the lake to run or walk the 2.5km around. It is majestic a sunset.
Biking is another idea if you like to bike of course. Hua Hin is pretty flat and easy to bike or can be demanding if you adventure yourself on cliffs and mounts around. You can rent a bike at the Center or the Resort too.
Motorbike is available to rent if you like to cover more distance than with a bike. It is a nice way to visit around and allow to be on your own too. Just remember safety first and wear a helmet all the time on the bike. It is very tempting to ride hair in the air but Thai people are driving fast and not so well.
