Hua Hin Fishing Lodge
While there are many popular tourist attractions in Thailand, Hua Hin is one of the leading locations for a vast array of reasons. It is not as though fishing is a priority for the many guests and visitors who attend the area, but if you are a keen angler, the Hua Hin Fishing Lodge is likely to be one of the best attractions you’ll find.
At just 10km from the heart of Hua Hin, this resort is easy to reach. If you are staying in the area, enjoying a great stay, you will hopefully be able to find some time to slip away and enjoy a fantastic day, or days, worth of fishing.
One thing to note from the start when it comes to the Hua Hin Fishing Resort is that it is closed every Thursday. Once you are aware of this, it becomes easier to plan your stay but if you don’t know, it might lead to an embarrassing or annoying situation if you turn up on a Thursday to find the place closed!
Where is the Hua Hin Fishing Resort?
We’ve already stated that the Hua Hin Fishing Resort is just 10km from the town centre, but if you are looking for a focal point with respect to Bangkok, it is a bit further away. The resort is less than three hours from Bangkok, which is an easy trip for any traveller, but equally, it should serve as a reminder that not everything in Thailand is centred around Bangkok.
Hua Hin is growing in popularity, and many guests already love it, coming back regularly. The fishing resort is just one of the many attractions which place Hua Hin on the map.

A “trophy” photograph is allowed at the resort, but guests must get into the water, and anglers can only handle the fish when there is a guide present.
