Royal Celebration Mini Marathon Hua Hin Centenial


“Hua Hin the city of magic, famous boxer and beautiful palace”
Hua Hin City has its long history since 1907 with many names before upgrading as Hua Hin District.  In 1911, the Hua Hin railway station was built with unique Royal Waiting Room in Thai architectural style. The Royal Waiting Room was built in the reign of King Rama VI in order to welcome the King and his entourage. Another interesting place to visit is Mrigadayavan Palace located in Cha-am District. It was constructed in 1923 under King Rama VI's command to be his summer palace.  With the long history of this resort town, Hua Hin City Municipality has worked together with private sectors to hold “Running Tradition between the 2 palaces”.  If you want to be written in this page of Hua Hin history, don’t miss this…
