How to get from Pattaya to Hua Hin

Separated by the Gulf of Siam, the two resort towns are connected by direct bus, van and passenger ferry routes. You can reach Hua Hin from Pattaya by train, too, but you will need to connect via Bangkok what means longer travel time. The overland distance between Pattaya and Hua Hin is about 350 km but as far as it requires to pass through the outskirts of Bangkok traffic can be thick and the whole journey takes between 5 and 6 hours if you travel by bus and costs under THB500. A ferry will whisk you to Hua Hin in mere 2 and a half hour for THB1,250 up.

Ferry from Pattaya to Hua Hin

A passenger ferry between Pattaya and Hua Hin was launched in January 2017 and since then it is by far the fastest way to travel between the two destinations. The ferry makes one daily trip in each direction. It leaves Pattaya at 10am and takes between 2 and 3 hours to reach Hua Hin depending on the sea conditions. Tickets cost from THB1,250 and up – there are VIP cabins on offer, too.

In Pattaya, the ferry leaves from Bali Hai pier located very centrally close to Walking Street and docks at Khao Ta Kiab pier in Hua Hin.

Note that when the sea is rough, those prone to seasickness do feel sick. Come prepared and take your medicine in advance.

Buses from Pattaya to Hua Hin

The only bus company that serves Pattaya–Hua Hin route direct is Bell Travel. They offer daily departures from Pattaya Northern Bus Station located in Pattaya North Road, 250 m from Sukhumvit Rd. The bus leaves at 11am and brings you to Hua Hin by 4.30pm. The route is served by a VIP24 bus with 3 seats per row what ensures quite a comfortable ride with plenty of leg space. Tickets cost THB470. In Hua Hin, Bell Travel buses arrive and depart from RRC Bus Station 400 m north of Hua Hin Airport on route 4.

Apart from the direct Pattaya–Hua Hin bus there are passing by buses including Yellow Bus which calls both to Pattaya and Hua Hin on their Rayong–Donsak route. It can be slightly inconvenient schedule-wise as the bus to Donsak leaves Pattaya at 8pm and gets to Hua Hin in the small hours, but it costs slightly less.

Other options include changing buses in Bangkok. Take a bus from Pattaya to Bangkok’s Southern Bus Terminal Sai Tai Mai or Ekkamai (THB150-200; 2-2,5 hours) and then hop onto any south-bound bus heading to Chumphon, Suratthani or Hat Yai from there. Travel time should be between 6 and 8 hours depending on your connection.

Note that it is also possible to connect via Suvarnabhumi airport. Both Bell Travel and 387 Bus run regular buses to the airport (2 hours; THB150-270). You may want to consider this option if you are based in Jomtien in Pattaya as 387 Bus leaves from there. Similarly, to get to Hua Hin from Suvarnabhumi airport there are buses every other hour till 7.30pm (4 hours; THB340).

Vans from Pattaya and Hua Hin

There are direct vans from Pattaya to Hua Hin leaving from South Pattaya Road Soi 10. Normally they depart every 2 hours from 8am till 4pm and cost THB400 but they are not bookable online or in advance and operate on first come–first served bases.

Another option to reach Hua Hin by van is to travel via Bangkok. There are frequent van departures to all the three Bangkok bus terminals from Pattaya, but it is probably even more convenient to get to Bangkok by big bus as described above and then switch onto a van.

There are a number of van companies serving Bangkok–Hua Hin route. JKP Morchit operates from Morchit Bus Terminal (THB220; 4 hours); Malee Van have frequent departures from Southern Bus Terminal (THB180; 3 hours); Nor Neane Transport leave from Ekkamai (4 hours) and can bring you to your hotel in Hua Hin (THB280).

Taxi from Pattaya to Hua Hin

Taxi fare for Pattaya–Hua Hin trips fluctuates within THB3,000 for a 3-passenger car to THB4,600 for a minivan. Some of the recommended companies include Glassflower and Hua Hin Cars.

Train from Pattaya to Hua Hin

While it is possible to get from Pattaya to Bangkok by train it is not really recommended. There is 1 departure a day at 2pm arriving to Bangkok at 6.20pm; 3 class seat only; THB50. If you are longing for a new experience, go ahead. In Bangkok, the train will bring you to Hua Lamphong train station where you can hop onto another train to Hua Hin (4 hours).

Passenger reviews out of total 5,657 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

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 while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Royal Passenger Liner is an excellent ferry service. There are others here in Thailand that don’t do such a nice job. All staff are friendly and professional. Equipment is clean and well-maintained. Service is reliable. That’s not easy to do! Thank you Royal.. I am so glad you are here!

The coach was clean and well air conditioned with comfy reclining seats. Arrived Hua Hin Airport ahead of schedule and then taken by mini bus to within walking distance of our hotel, this cost an extra 100 Baht, paid on the coach but was well worth it and avoided a taxi journey, The roads are not smooth, this is something you don't feel so much in a car but is amplified on a coach. There was one stop of about 10 minutes about half way through the journey.

I thought the whole nooking and boarding process went quite well. Little bit hot in the boat and the boat moved around a fair bit for what was a fairly average swell. Seemed a few people got a bit sick. But left on time, took about 2 hour 20 minutes and can buy some basic snacks on board. Plenty of taxis eaiting to take you to hua hin. Overall recommended

Booking and boarding etc went smoothly, but given the ticket price, I'm not too impressed with the quality of the vessels maintenance. Aircon didn't work well, and the whole trip was stuffy and sweaty. Also, the smell of stale vomit was prominent where we were sat, so we moved. We mentioned this to staff but nothing came of it. I don't think I could recommend this trip, especially on crowded sailings. As it was, ours was about a third full.

If tickets were purchased through 12go.asia, than meet directly at the Pier for check-in and luggage security check. There is no bathroom or air condition at the pier, so be prepared if you check-in too early. My group checked-in about 30 minutes from departure time. We departed about 15 minutes late. Business class deck was very rocky in upper deck. I'd recommend purchasing the economy class deck because it is lower and will have less rocking back and forth.
