Motorbikes are vital both to the locals and visitors since Hua Hin has no bus lines. And cabs do not make a usual transportation here like they do in Bangkok. Motorbike renting hubs cluster in the main beach entranceÂ’s whereabouts all the way up to the police station. The records of rental motorbike and car hub operators are kept by the authorities.
A bike is rented at the rate of 300-400 baht (>USD10)/ day and 3,500-4,000 baht (USD100-120)/ month. Renters are required to confide their important papers e.g. passports, ID cards, etc with motorbike owners. There has never been history of the confided papers being abused, according to Hua Hin Police and the tourist police.
Make sure your rented vehicle has insurance. The enforcement of traffic law could be lax and result in your having to shoulder the damages on your own, even in case of accidents you donÂ’t cause. You surely do not want to pay the motorbike owner a few thousand baht for the damages, regardless of who cause them.
