Rent from $430 a Month in Hua Hin—The Golfer’s Paradise Beach Town

Small, frothy waves slowly recede from the light tan sand, while the colorful parachutes of kiteboards fly overhead. A man in a cowboy hat walks his horse along the strand, hoping someone will ask for a ride. I’m sitting in a beach café, drinking fresh coconut water right from the shell for just $2 and taking it all in.
