Hua Hin shot up into the spotlight after the construction of the railway line in Bangkok in 1920. King Rama VI built the Klai Kangwon palace as a summer retreat and the waiting room was used to greet the king or his court that came to visit the town. This was the main attraction of the city and one of the oldest stations of Hua Hin.
Originally, this palace was located at Sanamchan Palace and was then known as Plub Pla Sanamchan. But during the year 1968, reconstruction work took place and the palace was transported to Hua Hin.
Using the railways is the one of the most advisable and affordable means to reach Hua Hin. From Bangkok, Hua Hin can be reached by train in around 6 hours. Second class and third class trains depart from Bangkok’s Hualumphong Station at 7:45 am and 9:20 am respectively. An express train departs at 3:35 pm.
Tickets are available at the station and from travel agencies. They can also be booked in advance at the station or by contacting the Bangkok Advanced Booking Office.
