Hua Hin is a progressive and friendly town with heaps of personality and charm. From its bustling downtown district to the white sand beaches, the area has a lot to offer throughout the year. This month’s issue of Hua Hin Today’s What’s On says farewell to a festive month in April and hello to more summer celebrations and events in May. School starts this month and people are bouncing straight back into a routine after the summer holidays; however, some may be suffering from post-holiday blues.
May is still the hot season in Thailand, but towards the end of the month, the rainfall increases as the the hottest season slowly changes into Thailand’s monsoon season. But before that happens, May boasts a repertoire of amazing events and experiences that suit many tastes and pockets. Kicking off the month of May is the grand opening of the Elite Fight Club in Hua Hin, inviting all fitness lovers to participate in the blessing and opening of the gym on May 1st.
Elite Fight Club boasts a chain of gyms in Thailand and is currently expanding to Germany, Bulgaria, and Australia, aiming to attract impressive talent and produce world-class fighters for their events. On the 12th of May, the Hua Hin Marathon 2019 takes place, inviting avid running enthusiasts to participate in this prestigious race hosted by Jog and Joy and the Hua Hin Guard Club Project.
The winding course takes athletes around the Khao Takiab area, starting from Wat Khao Krailart and consists of a full 42.195-kilometer marathon, a half marathon, a mini-marathon, and a five-kilometer fun run. Summer isn’t over this month with Longlay Beach Life Festival 2019 from 11 – 12 May on Longlay Beach in Cha Am. This outdoor beach festival is sure to be a hive of happiness and fun in the sun and offers a powerhouse of treats for all.
A fantastic combination of music, food, cocktails, and relaxation, this is sure to be a memorable two-day event.
