A must do while on visit to Hua Hin is riding an elephant. In the olden days the main mode of transportation in Thailand has been the elephant. You can find a fascinating elephant camp located just 3km s from Hua Hin. The elephant you ride will have a wooden seat attached with tight ropes to its back and you would be sitting there. The trainer or the guide will be sitting in front of you on the elephant and will be guiding it along. You can spend a day of admiring these gentle giants by feeding them bananas and watching them take a bath in the river. The elephants are capable of expertly travelling in diverse treks including dense jungles, and hills of mud and earth. All you have to make sure is to hold on to your seat and enjoy the splendid scenery unfolding around you.
