"Train Station" Hua Hin Transportation Tip by Willettsworld
Hua Hin Transportation: 51 reviews and 45 photos
Hua Hin's popularity began to increase in the 1920's as the railway line from Bangkok was constructed and King Rama VI built Klai Kangwon Palace as a summer retreat. Hua Hin's station is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Thailand and its main feature is The Royal Waiting Room that used to welcome the King and his court when they were visiting the town. Originally, it was situated at Sanamchan Palace in Nakom Pathom and was known as Plub Pla Sanamchan. Eventually, it was transported to Hua Hin and rebuilt in 1968.
The train is an easy method to get to Hua Hin, as the train station is right in the centre of the town. However, the trains go very slowly so what takes 2 1/2 hours by road to Hua Hin takes 5 or 6 on the train. The price of the train is around 100 baht (and only 44Bath for ordinary train). They leave Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong and Bang Sue railway stations 10 times daily between 7.45 a.m. and 10.50 p.m.
