Trains, Planes & Automobiles - Getting to and from Hua Hin

Recommended Posts

Can you charter minivans to HH from the airport like you can to Pattaya? If so, how much?

Cheers

I think you can, at the queue outside the airport. I had an enterprising female chauffer offer to take me to Hua Hin in her large Suburban, but she wanted about 5,000 baht. Instead, I took a regular size taxi for 2,000 baht, directly to my door.

I am landing in Suvarnabhumi around 21:00 on Friday night, can I still get a taxi to Hua Hin around this time and for how much?

I noted sawadee.com now offers transfer booking service (online), at THB 3250 for Suvarnabhumi-Hua Hin, has anyone tried it and is the price reasonable? (for a guaranteed pickup and transfer)

thanks!!

Another option, the luxurious Limo type Mini Bus service from the Dusit Hotel, leaves Bangkok at 3pm from the Hotel and drops you off at the Dusit in Hua Hin, travel in luxury (for a mini bus) with full reclining seats, free water and a cold fridge offering drinks, driver wearing a poncy uniform but driving safely!!! Book 24 hours in advance, 600 baht, the return trip leaves the Dusit at 11.15am

The minivans at "Victory Monument" no longer sit in front of the Rajiviti Hospital, but are on the other side of Victory Monument, in the parking lot of the ------------------ Center. Forgot the name, can someone fill in the blank, please?

The cost is now 190 baht. The terminal in Hua Hin is hard to describe or find, but right off of Petchakasem, near the Esso station and across from it, about five blocks north of the town center, in what looks like a bombed out building.

Hi PeaceBlondie and anybody else who can help on this thread,

I'm heading to Hua Hin next Monday and have to send some directions to a friend who doesn't speak Thai. Do you have any updates on the exact location from which to take the minibus from Victory Monument?

I'll leave from Pattaya. Do you think it would be easier and quicker to just take a bus direct to the southern terminal and then to Hua Hin or do the Victory Monument route instead?

Thanks in advance :o

I am very interested in transport to and from Hua Hin also

I have been avoiding the centre of Bangkok all together and taken the bus from the south terminal called Mai Sai Tai - I think

I got there directly from Pattaya. I don't know how easily reacheable it is from other areas.

Once arrived in Hua Hin I got off at the talaad (market) and looked for accommodation around there. I also got the bus back from there.

I am looking to get a taxi from Bangkok to Cha Am early Saturday morning. It seems like that'll cost about 2000 baht, which is fine. But how about getting back on Sunday eve? Is it easy enough to find a taxi to drive up to BK, and will it cost about the same?

Cheers fo any help.

PS, there are two of us, plus a (sometimes noisy) toddler, so a taxi is preferable to a minivan.

I was told that the Pattaya-Southern bus goes at 0800, 0900, 1000, 1200, 1300 (none at 1100), so then you could catch the Southern-HH Bus from there. Anyone done this? What is total time? Is this the best way?

I have gone to Hua Hin by bus from Pattaya via the southern terminal mai sai tai (or something that sounds like that..) twice now and I would do it again. I think that the second part of the journey should have taken about 3 & a half/4 & a half hours.

It wasn't too bad connectionwise, though, I can't tell you the exact frequency of the service, probably similar to the one in Pattaya. One piece of advice: avoid travelling mid-afternoon early evening or you'll spend the last leg of your journey on the bus wanting to go to the toilet/getting there quite late..
