Located around 220 kilometres south of the capital Bangkok on Thailand's Southern Line, you will find the Hua Hin Railway Station, in the popular "Royal" beach resort of Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.
Considered by some to be the most beautiful railway station in Thailand, Hua Hin station is now one of the most popular tourist attractions of the city, with its Victorian / Thai style Royal Waiting Room (Phra Mongkut Klao Pavilion) which once used to welcome the Royal family on their visits by train from the capital.
Today the station is a fairly busy place, with all trains heading south down to Hat Yai, Yala and into Malaysia, as well as all trains heading north to Bangkok, stopping off here.
Most trains from Hua Hin to Bangkok go to the main railway station in the city, Hua Lamphong Station.
From Hua Lamphong you can catch a train to most destinations in central, eastern and northern Thailand all the way up to Chiang Mai.
To save a little time, most trains also stop off at Bang Sue Junction Station, where you can make connections for trains heading north and north-east.
A few trains a day go to Bangkok's Thonburi Station, which is the train terminal for the Eastern Line to Kanchanaburi and the famous "Death Railway".
