A motorbike is one of the most convenient and fun transport options to explore the beautiful city of Hua Hin. Having your own transport, especially a motorbike, gives you the liberty of stopping in between to see an intriguing spot closely and even stay late without worrying about getting transport.
There are many bike rental services in Hua Hin that you can try. I am listing some of them that I have personally tried. Along with the best rental services, I am also sharing some important tips you should know about riding a bike in Hua Hin. So let us get started.
Renting a Scooter in Hua Hin
While renting a scooter in Hua Hin, you should first clear your purpose for taking a scooter. If you just want to visit nearby recreational spots, you can take the convenient scooters. These scooters have automatic gear and are very light in weight.
Just twist the throttle, and you are good to go. Most of them have a 100 or 125 cc engine and are very easy to manage. On the other hand, if you want to go adventure biking or are taking a long route, go for a bike.
