It must be said that in Hua Hin very much what kind of housing is rented through agents or Airbnb. Foreigners buy apartments, live in their own country, and housing is rented without their participation. Thus, if the owner the studio can be rented for 13-15 thousand baht, then the agent will offer it somewhere for 18-20, hence the high prices in general. Apartments are on average 13-20 thousand baht per month for a studio or one-bedroom apartments, and 20-30 for double and more. In Hua Hin itself, the price is usually a bit higher than on Takiab.

Townhouses are considered budget accommodation and it is their preferred most winterers. Search for them on the spot on arrival. AT The average price for a townhouse will be about 10-12 thousand baht. With this you get a larger area than the apartment for 15 thousand. Well, and at home cost about 20 thousand baht and above.
There are several supermarkets in Hua Hin. The main and large Tesco located in the Market Village shopping center in the heart of the city, that’s where everyone goes and usually procured. From the same Takiab not The problem is to get on the shuttle bus, 10-15 minutes. There is a Market Villa right next to Market Village, Big C in the west of the city (before uncomfortable to get on the bus), Macro in the very north of the city (near the airport), a small Tesco in the south near Takiab, but in him only on his own transport.
So, if you become attached directly to walking access to Tesco in Market Village, you need to live in or near the center of Hua Hin, and there noisy, crowded, there is a busy highway that is not everywhere You can go with a sidecar (the southern part of the main road with concrete chipper, you will not go), and indeed the apartments are more expensive, than on the outskirts.
Takiab has its own fruit and vegetable market, which operates on tuesday and saturday on the temple grounds so there is no need Ride to the Market Village. Hua Hin itself also has markets.
The city runs several minibuses (Songteo), which have different routes depending on what color it is. For example, on the green you can move along the whole city along the main road down to Takiab. Price fixed, for example, Hua Hin fare – Takiab costs 15 baht.
Thus, if you live along the route, then rent a bike or car optional. Although, of course, it is more convenient to move to your transport.
