Can anyone give me simple step by step directions to drive from BKK Suvarnabhumi airport to Hua Hin. I normally take a taxi but when I visit in November I am hiring a car and cannot read Thai road signs.

From airport follow to Dao Kanong

from Dao Kanong follow to Bang Kae

passing the city you have to cross the Rama 9 bridge (have the huge Kasikorn Bank Building on the right)

from Bang Kae follow to Samut Sakhon

from Samut Sakhon follow to Samut Sonkram

from Samut Sonkram follow to Phetchaburi

then to Cha Am

then to Hua Hin

you will drive on number 4 mostly of the way.

Many thanks Ciocco, this sounds easier than I thought ermm.gif

One more question if you dont mind...if there is serious flooding like last year, does this route get particularly congested with people exiting the city?

Easier will be depending on the traffic, sometime could be terrible... rolleyes.gif

Am not able to answer the second part of your question, not being there on that particular moments... but it's one of the most important traffic line of the country, am sure they will do the best to keep it safe and open...

Just came back from a van trip to Hua Hin...

Took the van service that loads at the Century Movie Complex mall parking lot at Victory Monument. 180 baht to HH or 160 baht to Cha-Am. Van stops in Cha-Am and then on to HH, where it ends at Soi 57, just a block off Petchkasem Road.

Took a different company van service for the return trip... Loads at the Grand Pavilion Hotel on Petchkasem Road across from the Tesco mini store near Soi 53. Same 180 baht pricing, or 160 baht if loading at Cha-Am... That company has its BKK ticketing table on the small soi alongside Rajivithi Hospital near Victory Monument, and lets passengers off in that same soi.

Both trips ran about 3 hours for the BKK-HH route at non-rush hour times. Both van drivers were reasonably sane and not excessively speeding. And interestingly, both vans had visible seat belts on all the seats... And I actually wore them on both trips, although I was the only one on both vans that seemed to be doing so.

Both companies seemed to have departing vans about every half hour, at least until 8 pm or so in the evening.

A bit more info I saved on the BKK to HH van service:

Here's the card for the vans that operate from the Century Movie complex at Victory Monument:

Hi All,

Has anyone taken the new bus from the airport to Cha Am?

I'm not familiar with the area to be honest (mostly know Chiang Mai), and was planning initally on heading down to the victory monument to try and catch a minibus.

I checked the link posted, and the travel service (Bell) states the drop off point as Bus Stop in front of Bangkok Bank at Cha-am Intersection.and i was wondering if this is actually in or near cha am?

As long as its near i should be fine, just wanted to make sure before i book a ticket it wont be miles and miles off!!

I don't know that exact location, but Cha-Am itself is pretty small, so it's likely in the center of the town along the main highway.

However, just fyi, the main highway is probably about a 10 minute walk inland from the beach... So it depends on where you're headed after arriving. But it's also easy to get a motorcycle taxi from the highway to anywhere local you want to go.

Cha-Am does have a bus station/stopping point that is only a couple of hundred meters from the beach; in fact the nickname of the soi is "Soi Bus Station", but I don't know if that is where this particular bus will stop. You would have to contact the company.

In front of the Bangkok Bank, means I think at the busstop at the Petchkasem High way, just a hundred meter from the traffic light, corner Narathip Rd, the road that brings you to the beach. plenty motorcycle taxis at the busstop who will bring you to the beach for about 40-50 baht

Hello All,

My wife and I are heading to Hua-Hin tomorrow, and seeing all the recent accidents have decided to try the train, we were told when my wife called the Thailand Trains booking that the only train is from 09am and its free for 3rd class, i dont mind paying for air-con but is this the only train leaving in the AM?. Does anyone know itf its true and how long does it actually take?

Thank you in advance,

James.
