Hua Hin is urbanized town on the West coast of Siam gulf. It’s totally different from other touristic places in Thailand.

Here wind changing direction during the season once. In the beginning of the season till the end of December it blows from North, than in January it starting to turn and blows from the South. It’s also affects on the waves, tides and beach area. Opposite situation with the South wind — flat water, low tides, huge beach area. Also you should know about jellyfishes and protect yourself by wearing lycra and pans. North season has morning wind and South wind season starts in afternoon.

Here wind are from the Indian monsoon (the same one that blows in Kalpitiya). Best time to kitesurf is May to September.
Thanks to the fact that the main kitesurfing spot, Laem Son, is southerly facing, it’s one of the best places to kitesurf in Thailand during the summer. The shape of the bay is perfect curved so no matter if the wind is blowing from the southeast or southwest (and it does change occasionally throughout the summer). The winds are on and off with the incoming of clouds and rain. The best month for kiteboarding is August. Laem Son has shallow water for at least 1km. The water is also very clear and with a sandy bottom.
As for Rayong itself:
It’s a peaceful place with few foreign tourists and plenty of understated local charm- a laidback alternative to the flashiness of Pattaya. The only time Rayong gets really busy is during the Thai national holidays when the Bangkokers fly the coop and flock to the beach.
