Catching the train from Bangkok to Hua Hin is the easiest way to travel
between the two cities with the railway station right in the middle of
Hua Hin and within an easy walk to dozens of hotels and the main beach
area in the centre of the city.
The bus may be faster but the bus station in Hua Hin is quite a long way from the main area of town to the south, requiring a taxi ride to get you back into the main tourist area of the city.
Regular buses from Bangkok to Hua Hin leave from the Southern Bus Terminal in Bangkok.
There is another alternative, a minibus from Bangkok.
However, if you have ever been in a minibus in Thailand you will know the high speeds these minibuses travel at and would feel a lot more relaxed by taking the train.
If you are flying into Bangkok (BKK), you can now get a bus from Bangkok Airport to Hua Hin.
Buses from BKK to Hua Hin run every couple of hours during the day.
The distance between Bangkok and Hua Hin Railway Station by train is 229 km.
