Hua Hin Railway Station

Hua Hin Railway Station

Hua Hin Railway Station is one of the oldest in Thailand and its main feature is The Royal Waiting Room that used to welcome King and his court when they were visiting the town.

The story about the birth of Hua Hin as a royal seaside getaway town would be incomplete without a mention of this historic railway station. Back in the early days, there was no road access to this idyllic beach town, and train travel was a new and delightful alternative to get from Bangkok to Hua Hin instead of by boat.

Hua Hin’s popularity began to increase in the 1920’s. As the railway line from Bangkok was constructed and King Rama VI built Klai Kangwon Palace as a summer retreat.

Originally, it was situated at Sanamchan Palace in Nakom Pathom and was known as Plub Pla Sanamchan. Eventually, the room was tranported to Hua Hin.

Relive the splendour of Hua Hin’s past by combining your visit to the train station with Maruekhathaiyawan Palace, also fashioned in similar style with open verandahs, covered boardwalks and beautiful fretwork details. Better yet, relive the past and take the train from Bangkok to Hua Hin, a journey that takes about four hours compared to 2.5 hours by car.

Hua Hin Railway Station Reviews

Old world charm
The railway station is about 100 years old and has been kept in very good condition and is still in use.


Really nice
Probably one of the most beautiful stations in the world. Easy to buy tickets and a small shop for drinks and snacks.


Fascinating bit of history
OK it’s just a railway station but historic information available and the old royal waiting room building is worth seeing. Also fascinating when a train comes in and you can see the various on-board facilities.


Nice spot for photography
Hua Hin Railway Station is one of the points of interest here. Nothing modern, just a small simple station but many people come here for photography, only some locals waiting for the train, though. It’s not fenced up, so people just walk across the tracks to take photos.
