Hua Hin to Bangkok Destination Reviews

Train #172 2nd Class Sleeper AC, Thai Railway (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Jan 27, 2022
The train arrived at Hua Hin station more than 150 minutes late. Then the train stopped running on the way and was transferred by bus I missed the 5 PM train. I explained why I missed the train at the station information desk and asked for help. The station staff did not provide any relief measures. I took a taxi home and paid 2200 THB.

The bus was clean and comfortable, but the journey took almost 3 and a half hours and they never stopped and let passengers use the restroom. It was too long of a journey for us without a bathroom break, and made the second part of the ride pretty uncomfortable.
Van Regional 14pax, JKP Mochit (บจก.เจเคพีทรานสปอร์ต), Dec 26, 2021
The seats of the bus were too small even for my skinny seat mate. Good thing is they are flexible with their hours. Probably because of the pandemic and the number of passengers that board from the station

I was the only guest on the ride and the van was very comfortable. However, the air-conditioning was extremely cold, it dropped to 15 degree, so I was glad to have my jacket with me. We arrived one hour earlier than the scheduled time, it took only three hours. When we arrived, I noticed that the trunk had been open and maybe not properly closed during the whole ride. Luckily, my luggage was still there and not damaged. Smaller items could have fallen out however during the trip.
Van Regional 14pax, Win Poo Yai Piak (วินผู้ใหญ่เปี้ยก ), Jul 5, 2021
I was scammed! I called the hotline number on my ticket to see if the van could pick me up in cha-am on the way to Bangkok from Hua Hin. The women said yes and scheduled a time for me and my friend to be ready and waiting for the van. But no van shows up. It was the woman from the hotline in her own car. She takes us to a hua hin stop and tells us we owe 500bhat for the ride! Then she and the operator at the stop tried taking our paper tickets to make it look like we had just purchases tickets when we already had. SCAM! Do not right with them or take any hotel pickups they offer you :(
