Travel from Hua Hin to Bangkok

There are three public transport options for travelling between Hua Hin and Bangkok:

For a short journey like this, which would take about 3 hours if you were driving your own car, the best option is to take a minivan.

Minivans leave from Hua Hin at times regular during the day and the journey time quicker than the train and the bus. Unless you want to pay for a taxi the whole way, minivan is the best way to travel the short journey from Hua Hin to Bangkok.

About Minivans to Bangkok

We recommend using Nor Neane Transport. Their minivans depart from Hua Hin Alley 51 minivan station just off the Phetkasem Road, which is the main highway running through the City. This is a great service to use because it terminates at Ekkamai Bus Station which has the best local transport connections of the three major bus terminals in Bangkok.

Arrival In Bangkok

The Nor Neane Transport Service terminates at the Eastern Bus Terminal in Bangkok. The Eastern Bus Terminal (or Ekkamai Bus Station as it is also known) is on the Sukhumvit Road and very close to Ekkamai BTS Station. For onward travel throughout Bangkok and interchanges to the Airport Link, metro, and Chao Phraya Express Boat services, we recommend taking the elevated light railway (Bangkok’s ‘skytrain’) from Ekkamai BTS station as generally it will be quicker than taking a taxi and definitely quicker than taking a local bus.

Minivans at Victory Monument

Since late 2016 minivan services from Hua Hin to Bangkok no longer terminate at Victory Monument because of Government concerns about traffic congestion in Central Bangkok, but instead arrive at either the Eastern Bus Terminal or the Southern Bus Terminal which is outside the city centre.
