Hua Hin (Thai: หัวหิน, IPA: [hǔə hǐn]) is one of eight districts (amphoe) of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province in the northern part of the Malay Peninsula in Thailand. Its capital, also named Hua Hin, is a beach resort town. The district has a population of 84,883 in an area of 911 km².

In 1834, before the name Hua Hin was coined, some agricultural areas of Phetchaburi Province were hit by severe drought. A group of farmers moved south until they found a small village that had bright white sands and a row of rocks along the beach. They settled here and gave it the name Samore Riang (Thai สมอเรียง; rtgs: Samo Riang), which means "rows of rocks".

In 1921 the director of the state railway, Prince Purachatra, built the Railway Hotel close to the beach. King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) liked the place so much that he built a summer palace there. The palace was named Klai Kang Won ("far from worries"). From 2004 until 2006 it was the full-time residence of Bhumibol Adulyadej (after which chronic poor health forced him to return to Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok, where medical facilities and physicians were closer at hand). The king returned to Hua Hin on 2 August 2013.[1] His Royal Highness Prince Krom Phra Naresworarit was the first member of the royal family to build a group of palaces at Ban Laem Hin, called Sukaves, and he gave the beach next to his palace the name "Hua Hin".

In 1932 Hua Hin was part of Pran Buri District as a minor district (King Amphoe). In 1949 Hua Hin was promoted to be a separate district of Prachuap Khiri Khan.[2] After the building of Thailand's southern railway connected the district with Bangkok along with various destinations en route, Hua Hin became the first and most popular beach resort in the country.

Hua Hin has a tropical savanna climate (Köppen climate classification Aw). Temperatures are very warm to hot throughout the year, with only small variations. The year begins with the dry season (December–April), before the monsoon arrives in May. Rains ease somewhat from June to August before the heaviest rains begin in September and continue through November.
