Not long ago, Ari's The Yard Hostel introduced a new sustainable hostel concept--buildings made from shipping containers. Now, not too far from the city thre's another place that has adopted a similar concept.

Hua Hin in Boxes is a boutique resort decked in brightly-colored recycled shipping containers surrounding a communal swimming pool, each container serving as one spacious bedroom. There are 10 rooms in total, all equipped with air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Located in central Hua Hin, the resort is just 1km away from the beach and the food market.

Apart from its unique concept, the hotel won’t suck up your life savings, either. If you book directly through them you’ll get the lowest rates, where rooms will cost B1,000 per night Mon-Thu and B1,300 per night on weekends, inclusive of breakfast for two. There are also motorbikes for rent at the hotel for B300 a day. For more information and reservations, visit
