As you can see from the timetables below, the only train you can take from Kanchanaburi to make a connection at Nong Pla Duk for Hua Hin is the early morning one.

Chances are this train will be delayed (most Ordinary services run late), so we recommend you buy a ticket to Nakhon Pathom and if the train is late, just stay on it to Nakhon Pathom.
