Thailand Discover the 6 Best Ways to Reach Hua Hin in 2023: Your Ultimate Travel Guide

Travel Guide: Bangkok to Hua Hin Journey Situated around 90 miles south of Bangkok, Hua Hin is a favored weekend retreat due to its proximity and excellent transportation links. For those seeking respite from city life, this coastal town is an ideal escape. For a comprehensive exploration of Hua Hin activities, check my linked article below. Here, we'll focus on your transport options, tailored to your budget --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 1: Traveling to Hua Hin by Bus If you're looking to travel from Bangkok to Hua Hin, there are convenient bus options available. **From Suvarnabhumi Airport** You can catch modern 24-seat coaches directly to Hua Hin from the airport. These coaches come with amenities like a toilet and complimentary water for passengers. The service counter is near Gate 8 on the ground floor. Tickets cost 340 Baht each, offering good value. The coaches run eight times daily, starting at 9 AM, with departures every 1 hour and 30 minutes. The journey takes about 3 to 4 hours, but consider additional time during peak traffic. Note that the coaches have strong air conditioning, so it's advisable to bring a light blanket or sweater for comfort, especially after a flight. **From Bangkok City Centre** To catch a bus from Bangkok to Hua Hin, head to Sai Tai Mai (Southern Bus Terminal) where larger buses operate. However, these buses are slower and might take around 5-6 hours for the journey. The terminal is a bit tricky to reach since it's not on a main BTS or MRT station. A metered taxi from Khao San Road or Sukhumvit might cost around 200 to 300 Baht. Bus tickets range from 200 to 300 Baht. While you can buy tickets on-site, during peak times, it's advisable to check schedules and book in advance for specific departure times. Buses run every 20 minutes. Sai Tai Mai terminal also houses shopping options, restaurants, ATMs, a food court, banks, and even a clinic if you have some time to spare. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 2: Traveling to Hua Hin by Train For a scenic journey, traveling to Hua Hin by train offers a slower yet charming alternative to buses and minivans. Trains provide a traffic-free experience, but it's important to note that they might not always adhere to precise schedules. The Bangkok-Hua Hin train operates regularly from Hua Lamphong railway station. Departures begin at 8:05 AM and end at 22:50 PM, with an average travel time of approximately 4 hours. You have three ticket classes to choose from, each with varying fares: third class at around 150 Baht, second class at approximately 400 Baht, and first-class at about 600 Baht. If you prefer an air-conditioned sleeper, they're available at higher prices, and they're a great choice for overnight travel. Generally, advance train ticket booking for the Bangkok-Hua Hin route isn't necessary. You can even buy third-class tickets directly from the counter on the day of your departure. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 3: Traveling to Hua Hin by Taxi If your priority is comfort and convenience, opting for a taxi to Hua Hin is an excellent choice. You have the flexibility to either pre-book a taxi for a set price, which usually includes tolls and gasoline. You can use the form on our website here to make a reservation. The journey by taxi to Hua Hin lasts approximately 3 hours. Numerous private car companies operate online, offering rates between 1,700 and 3,000+ Baht. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 4: Traveling to Hua Hin by Minivan The most budget-friendly and straightforward way to reach Hua Hin from Bangkok is by minivan. The journey typically takes around 3 to 4 hours, contingent on traffic conditions. Minivans can accommodate 10 to 12 passengers and come equipped with air conditioning. The ticket cost is roughly 180 Baht. A notable advantage of minivan travel is the flexibility in terms of departure points. Unlike the Sai Tai Mai bus station, minivan companies operate from accessible locations such as Ekkamai, Khao San Road, and Mo Chit New Van Terminal. However, a drawback of minivans is the limited space available for both passengers and luggage. If you're traveling with numerous bags, the minivan option might not be ideal. While it's cost-effective, it can get crowded when fully occupied. It's important to mention that, in my opinion, this mode of travel might be the least safe. Minivan drivers often work under tight schedules, leading to aggressive driving. Unlike taxis, where you can communicate your preferences to the driver, being one of many passengers in a minivan could make it harder to influence the speed. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 5: Traveling to Hua Hin by Plane While Hua Hin has an airport, there are no regular commercial flights from Bangkok. However, if budget isn't a constraint, you can consider a private jet charter. Opting for a plane is undeniably the fastest way to reach Hua Hin, with a mere 35 minutes of travel time. However, be prepared for a hefty price tag, as this is the most expensive option available. Unfortunately, I can't provide an estimate of the cost. If you've experienced a private jet charter previously, feel free to share your insights in the comments section. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   * Option 6: Traveling to Hua Hin by Rent-a-Car Renting a car presents a favorable choice, offering not only control over your transportation but also convenience in navigating Hua Hin. Having a car is particularly useful if you plan to explore beyond the town. While daily Tuk Tuks, taxis, or minivans are available, having your own vehicle adds flexibility. This option suits group travel and families, and the route from Bangkok is fairly straightforward with bilingual road signs. However, if you're sleep-deprived from a long flight, driving might be risky. Ensure you're well-rested to avoid fatigue behind the wheel. Sharing the driving responsibilities can make the journey enjoyable. You might even make stops along the way, visiting attractions like Nakhon Pathom’s giant Chedi or the Damnoen Saduak floating market. Without stops, the trip takes under 3 hours. Car rental services are available at the airport; advance booking is recommended. Budget and Sixt are reliable options I've used. Prices vary based on group size and luggage needs. Hatchbacks and sedans for up to five people start around 1,200 Baht per day. 7-seater SUVs begin at approximately 1,500 Baht per day. Planning a trip and transportation might seem daunting, especially in unfamiliar territory. However, when it comes to traveling to Hua Hin from Bangkok, the array of options makes planning comfortable, convenient, cost-effective, and safe.
