Some experienced travelers prefer to overcome this route using local public transport with transfers via Bangkok. To be done this way you can average 300 baht, but you'll have to endure some inconvenience and spend a full day on the move.

  • By train

    This is the cheapest but the longest way. You will have to drive from Pattaya to the railway station Hua Lamhong in Bangkok by train No. 284 (departs at 14:21, arrives at 18:15, the cost is 31 baht, you can check the timetable here From Bangkok to Hua hin then you need to change on one of the four evening trains departing in 18:30, 19:30, 22:50 and another at 22:50 (4 hours, cost 44 baht, timetable here On the train at 18:30 chances to get virtually no because of frequent tardiness.

    Thus on this route you will take 10-12 hours and 75 baht, in Hua hin you arrive late at night.

  • Minivan

    The cheapest way of moving is to travel by minivans (minibuses) with a transfer at the station to Victory Monument.

From Victory Monument to Hua hin, the minivans depart every 30 minutes, costs 180 baht, three hours.

    Thus on the route the vans will take 5-6 hours and 272 baht, but what is bad, carry big Luggage in a small bus is nearly impossible, and safe ride with crazy drivers not name.

  • By bus

    Regular buses through Bangkok you should go with a transfer to the southern bus station Sai Tai Mai, because only from there, buses to Hua hin. But the problem is that from Pattaya to the South terminal direct buses no (but to our knowledge), so this variant we do not consider.

Hua hin some pandemonium kupalisko on the beach is just in the center, near the Marina, and further South almost no one there. Cha-am is even quieter, but there is more to the Thais. ...
