Hua Hin has never been the technological hub of Thailand and as a result can be quite frustrating at times when you need to get things done.
It lacks many of the telecommunications services that can be found in Bangkok which is only two hours away, however things are slowly improving as Hua Hin moves forward and develops.
In the center of town things are relatively easy when it comes to technology, telephone lines are of a higher standard, internet cafes are plentiful and there is no shortage of computer and camera suppliers.
