Our location in Khao Tao is not just a geographical point; it’s a feature that adds immense value to the Manora experience.

Located in the picturesque Khao Tao area of Hua Hin, the Zaithong Hydrofarm & Cafe is devoted to growing organic salads and vegetables without the use of any harmful chemicals. We believe in the power of nature and the importance of nurturing our bodies with fresh, organic produce. Our farm is more than just a place where vegetables grow; it’s a haven where health, wellness and sustainability converge.

Our cafe offers an array of dishes made from the fresh produce grown at our hydrofarm, allowing our residents and visitors to indulge in delicious, nutritious products that are as good for the body as they are for the taste buds. We firmly believe that healthy eating is an integral part of a luxurious lifestyle, and we are committed to promoting this through our organic farm and cafe.

Hua Hin, a charming coastal city located on the Gulf of Thailand, has been a beloved holiday destination for both locals and tourists alike. Known for its serene beaches, lush national parks and historical attractions, Hua Hin is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Thailand’s capital Bangkok. In recent years Hua Hin has gained popularity as a family-friendly vacation spot offering a diverse range of activities and experiences for all ages.

While Hua Hin’s popular attractions are undoubtedly worth visiting, going off the beaten path allows travelers to gain a deeper understanding of the local culture, connect with nature and experience a more authentic side of the city. Exploring lesser-known attractions can also help reduce the negative impacts of over tourism such as overcrowding and strain on local resources ensuring the city’s charm and natural beauty are preserved for future generations.

This guide aims to showcase some of Hua Hin’s hidden gems featuring off-the-beaten-path activities and attractions that promise a truly unique and unforgettable experience. From exploring the region’s natural wonders and immersing yourself in local culture to discovering tucked-away beaches and engaging in one-of-a-kind outdoor activities, these recommendations will inspire you to venture beyond the typical tourist itinerary and create lasting memories in Hua Hin.
