Hua Hin other sports
There are numerous other sports and activities you can do in and around Hua Hin. Not all of them are organized or have clubs so there are plenty of opportunities to form them.
A new paintball arena called "Splat Combat" has opened up next to Condochain on Petchkasem Road, they cater for individual and corportate events wanting to get splattered!
Ten Pin Bowling
With the arrival of Hua Hin Market Village came the long awaited bowling alley on the third floor. We will bring you more information on this as soon as we get it.
This will be offered at the new development up at Zephyr Valley, we will bring you more details soon, in the meantime you can contact the Hua Hin Observer.
A number of military operated shooting ranges are available for public use around town, they are usually located a few kilometers out. There is a Hua Hin Shooting Association located at the end of the canal road. A larger place can be found in Prachuab where you can shoot at targets with hand guns and rifles and Thanarat in Pranburi is open to the public. Its best to take a Thai though as explaining what you want to a man with a gun could get tricky! They also have an adventure obstacle course here.
There is no available scuba diving in Hua Hin, vizibility is rarely more than a couple of meters and the bottom is mud and sand with no coral growth and very little else to see. The nearest place to dive is Koh Talu off the coast of Bang Saphan, two hours south. More information here: Bang Saphan Guide and Koh Talu Diving
Dragon Boat Racing
This annual event is held on the Pranburi river in Paknampran and is great fun to watch. Teams take the event very seriously and will have been in training for months beforehand. It normally takes place in November.
