How to get to Hua Hin from Bangkok

How to get from Bangkok to Hua Hin

The distance between Bangkok and Hua Hin is 200 km. To get there, consider taking a bus, a van, a taxi or a train. If travelling by road, travel time is from 4 to 5 hours and depends on traffic which can be quite tough along the route. Buses depart mainly from the Southern Bus Terminal and Ekkamai, with bus fare around THB200-THB300 plus there is a direct transfer from Suvarnabhumi airport to Hua Hin (THB340). Vans cost almost the same as big buses but can be slightly faster. Taxi rates start from THB2,000 and worth considering you are a group big enough to order a private van for up to 9 passengers (THB3,000). Consider taking a train to Hua Hin if you stay close to the city centre. They leave from Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok and take 4 hours to reach Hua Hin with 2 class seats costing from THB200 – expect to pay more for a sleeper and much less for a 3 class hard seat.

Being the first official Thai sea resort, Hua Hin has good transport connections with the capital. Trains, buses and vans ply the route between Bangkok and Hua Hin daily. If you are considering taking a bus, note that road traffic can be really bad – especially on Friday evening and Saturday morning from Bangkok to Hua Hin, when people are escaping to the sea for a weekend, and on Sunday evening – from Hua Hin to Bangkok, when all the Bangkokians are heading back home. Arrange accordingly.

Note that you can get to Hua Hin directly from Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. Bell Travel operates VIP24 buses which go from the airport to Hua Hin. There are seven buses a day, every two hours from 7.30am with the last one departing at 7.30pm. They leave from the Gate 8 on Level 1 and take about four hours to arrive to Hua Hin bus station between Soi 96 and 98 Phetkasem Road.

From Bangkok to Hua Hin by bus

There are both big buses and minivans heading to Hua Hin from different locations in Bangkok all day through. Big buses depart from Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok, Sai Mai Tai. They are a sure bet, but can be incredibly slow. Be ready to spend at least five hours on board.

The easiest, quickest and cheapest way to get to Hua Hin is by minivan. 12go.asia recommends Malee Travel vans which depart from the southern side of Victory Monument in Bangkok. You can easily get to Victory Monument by BTS and then follow Phayathai Rd towards the Monument. Malee van station is to your right, just behind the bus stop.

Malee Travel sends vans to Hua Hin every half an hour from 6am till 6.30pm. The whole trip takes about three hours. In Hua Hin, vans park off Soi 88/1 Phetkasem Rd., in front of Bangkok Bank branch. Tickets cost THB180.

Tip: Taking a minivan is not a good idea if you travel with a lot of luggage. Consider other options to get to Hua Hin from Bangkok instead.

From Bangkok to Hua Hin by train

Hua Hin sits on the Sourthern Line of Thai railway. Normally trains in Thailand offer a slower alternative to buses, but in case with Hua Hin it is a good idea to travel by train because Route 4 from Samut Prakan to Hua Hin is notorious for its traffic gems, and you can easily spend up to five or six hours travelling by car or by bus, while a train brings you to Hua Hin from the centre of Bangkok in four hours for sure. Another great thing about travelling to Hua Hin by train is the train station in the resort city. Even among other picture-perfect train stations in Thailand it does stand out. Arriving to this gingerbread-like train station is a pure delight – at least for us! – which guarantees you a good mood during your whole stay in Hua Hin.

Any Suratthani-bound train passes through Hua Hin, but many of them sell out quickly for the longer journeys, so as a rule you have rather a limited choice of trains on offer. These include a morning #43 train which leaves Hua Lamphong train station in Bangkok at 8.05 and arrives to Hua Hin before noon at 11.29am. It offers second-class AC seats only at around THB650, but they are completely ok for this brief journey. There is also an afternoon #35 train leaving at 2.45pm and arriving at 8.45pm which is also a convenient option to get to Hua Hin from Bangkok. It has second-class AC sleepers at a bit higher price (approx. THB 670) and can also be considered, as by day berths are normally folded out into seats.

From Bangkok to Hua Hin by taxi

PGS Charter operates chartered taxis and vans to Hua Hin any time of the day by your request. They pick you up at your hotel or other location on your choice in Bangkok and bring directly to your destination in Hua Hin. They offer Toyota Camry for 3 pax at THB3080 and Toyota Commuter for 9 pax at THB3300, which is obviously a better investment if you have other fellow travellers to share expenses.

Why go to Hua Hin?

Though Hua Hin has a high status of a royal sea resort, sea is definitely not the most impressive thing about the city. Its wide beaches with shallow waters, though, cater well for families with children, and an abundance of family-oriented attractions, including Vana Hava Hua Hin and Black Mountain waterparks and Santorini Theme Park in Cha-Am, is a great plus for travellers with the little ones. But if you are an adventurous type, you will not be disappointed, either. There are a couple of worth-visiting national parks in the vicinity, a colourful Art Village and a busy night market; there are beautiful palaces and old teak houses which have been spared by the rapid growth of the city, tasty and cheap seafood restaurants and that subtle air of the beginning of the last century with its characteristic old-school charm which makes you forget about seedy bars and clogged streets, tourist traps and inflated prices. All in all, it is a destination not to be skipped off.

Further afield from Hua Hin

While in Hua Hin, why not jump at the opportunity and not explore Hua Hin’s less known neighbours? Located on the same coastline, they offer totally different experience.

Quiet charm of a provincial capital: Prachuap Khiri Khan

Prachuap Khiri Khan is an absolutely delightful destination. This quiet provincial capital oozes tons of charm. It boasts almost circle bays which you can admire from a couple of view points in the surrounding hills, unusual shell temples, a colourful weekend market, incredible sunrises over the Gulf and one of the most beautiful city pillars in the whole country. You can get to Prachuap from Hua Hin – it is only 96 km to the south – or by a direct train from Bangkok – and to our mind, the train station in Prachuap Khiri Khan, though smaller, does not have much to envy to the one in Hua Hin!

A quiet harbour: Pranburi

Quiet and laidback vibe reigns in Pranburi. Shallow waters kiss its skinny white sand beaches; loud music from nightclubs does not disturb tropic evenings. Sounds like a plain sleepy town, is it not? Well, to some extend it is, but it is exactly this atmosphere of a secret, peaceful place that attracts those who are seeking complete relaxation in tranquil setting to Pranburi. Walk through a mangrove forest in Pranburi Forest Park, watch bottlenose dolphins playing in Dolphin Bay from February to May, go kayaking or just soak in the serenity of a new Thai Riviera.

To come to Pranburi from Bangkok, use PSG Charter. They offer Toyota Camry for three pax at THB3960 or Toyota Commuter for 9 pax at THB4180. The rates are all-inclusive (pick-up and drop-off at chosen locations, tolls and luggage); the journey lasts from three to four hours.

Getting around

Hua Hin is flat which makes bicycles a convenient option for moving around the town. Note though that traffic is rather heavy in Hua Hin, especially in Phetkasem Road, so think twice before you venture out on your two-wheel horse.

Scooters and motorcycles are easily available for rent at around THB300 per day. If you are not an experienced driver, it may prove a better idea to use public transport instead, as trafic in Hua Hin, as in almost any Thai resort city, tends to be chaotic.

Songthaws are white and green pickup trucks which ride a set route in the central part of the city and outside it. Depending on the distance you ride, the trip will cost you from THB10 to THB40. The most useful route starts from the train station and goes as far as Wat Huay Mongkon and the floating market.

Four- and three-wheel tuk-tuks are readily available around the city. Always negotiate the cost of your ride before the trip. Though not so shameless as their Phuket counterparts, Hua Hin’s tuk-tuk drivers are not a Western tourist’s best friends as far as the price is concerned: be ready to pay no less than THB100 even for the shortest of rides.

Not to Miss: A Real Thai-Style Breakfast in Hua Hin

Jek Pia, a coffee shop with more than five decades of experience located at the corner of Soi Naeb Kehart and Dechanuchit, is arguably the best place in the town to have a real Thai-style breakfast. Order any kind of joke – rice porridge – from a long list (THB30-THB80) and enjoy your morning. Open daily from 6.30am till 1.20pm and from 5.30pm till 7.30pm.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★☆☆
Noon pickup and no driver. Unable to reach 12asia or Glassflower by text or email and had no phone for either. After 45 minutes of trying to deal with language barrier at hotel desk, finally found phone for Glassflower and called. Hemming and hawing and finally said it must be traffic and van on way. Another 20 minutes and another call. More vague comments then they said there was a mistake and they guessed they forgot. Finally said the driver left about 15 minutes ago. When the driver was on the way I mentioned the name of the resort we were going to in Hua Hin, about 3 to 4 hours away. He nodded as though familiar with it. Once in Hua Hin he had no idea where to go and no less than 3 Times stopped to exit the van and make phone calls to get info. I gave 3 stars because at least the driver endured and did not just dump us. I will be looking for other arrangements for trip back to BKK in a week,

We took a taxi to what we thought would be our coach pick up point.

The lady was very helpful - we had a very cheap and nice breakfast in a cafe along the canal whilst waiting 70 baht for eggs on toast and mango juice. The coach to Hua Hin was old and not comfortable but it did get there on time.

Travelled from Bangkok to Hua Hin and had to pay extra for my luggage (which ended up on a pile with someone else's luggage on one single seat) but it's ok. About 3/4 way through the journey, I realised that the van will be passing by my hotel (Royal Pavilion) before driving a further 10-15mins to reach Hua Hin Amber. Hence, I requested for drop off opposite my hotel, which the driver gladly allowed.

Train left on time but more than 1 hour late on arrival. We had a 3rd class ticket and it was quite uncomfortable and smelly but overall we arrive at destination and for a cheap price so at the end this it what matter.

Journey itself was OK. Driver was competent... never felt unsafe even when in strong winds & rain. Disappointed with boarding procedure, it was a race for the best seats. My family of 3 adults & 2 infants couldn't compete with the athleticism of the other passengers and we ended up scattered. A seat allocation system would have been more considerate to my family's wish to be seated together. Otherwise pleased with the customary Thai hospitality.

The driver was very responsible and make sure everyone is inside before moving off. He went down from the van and help us to talk with the hotel staff after dropping us off. Hope will meet him again at the next trip.

Trip was fine, staff very helpful when we were slightly delayed. But the online booking fee of 100baht on top of the regular fee of 180baht we feel was exorbitant. And prior to booking there was no advanced warning of the fee.

Quick ride but don’t expect it to be themost comfortable or spacious. Got us there safely. Despite reviews of not being dropped off at hotels, we were dropped off where we requested.

Make sure you get to the bus station on time! We left like half an hour early. It was a bit of a mission to fit all the bags in there but managed perfectly fine in the end. Driver was really good and nice enough to drop me off next to the hostel.

The ride felt safe, some of the seatbelts worked and we made it on time. I am tall and was comfortable. I had paid extra to be dropped of at my hotel but the driver just stopped at the main road and pointed to the street where my hotel was. Still a cheap ride.

Made it to hua hin in good time. However I paid extra to be taken to my hotel but the driver took me to the wrong hotel and insisted that mine was behind it. Had to walk 3km to find my hotel.

MiniVan usually are not the most comfortable,but often the most convenient way to get some where. Drivers can be rude and drive like crazy - our driver was extraordinary friendly,drove carefully and even made a little detour To drop us in front of our hostel.

We got another seat for our larger bag which worked well to get our luggage onboard without question. Van was packed to the max. Journey took less than 3 hours. Driver dropped us off at our hotel in Hua Hin which was a bonus. Booked online which worked well. No concept of timetable - when there us a van and enough people it goes.

This was a bigger van than the last time, the seat belts were present, and the handling at Ekkamai was great. However, when i got out at what was supposed to be Amber (I asked and repeated), it turned out that I was Cha-Am, half an hour away. No-one spoke enough English to explain what to do (wait for the next bus? Or was it the wrong stop? Or...) In the end I had to take a motorcycle taxi which cost me twice what the van to Huahin costs. I knew I had to get out ahead of time, because last time when I booked to Amber, I was driven to the van terminal in Huahin and was told that if I wanted to get out at Amber I should have told so beforehand. It is completely non-obvious from 12go.asia booking that there is actually a bus change in the middle. I am just guessing that this is the case.

Wonderful service from 12GO. I appreciated the helpful reminders about how much time I had left to get my tickets. And the very nice people I dealt with when I picked up the tickets. I loved the ride. No ac which meant open windows. Lots of breeze and lots of smells. I truly got to experience the Thai countryside up close. I also enjoyed seeing and hearing all the hawkers walking through the cars selling food and drink. A terrific experience all around.

Quick trip, however definitely unsafe, and driver was not mature enough to be responsible for transporting van full of 10+ individuals. Almost had 2 accidents along way, kid driving was on cell phone for over half of 3-hr journey. Need anymore be said. Will not recommend taking minivan to anyone, as driver assigned most likely will be unreliable. Will take train or VIP bus to Hua Hin next time, even if it takes little longer...
