The Hua Hin Railway Station is one of the oldest buildings in Thailand. Its beautiful and intricate architecture is designed in the same style as the Maruekkhathayawan Palace.

Hua Hin Railway Station, Hua Hin Reviews
The prettiest train station in Thailand, in my opinion. Apparently it was built just over 100 years ago as Thai royalty used to come to Hua Hin by train for a holiday. There’s a plaque with the history of the station. The station is mostly red and white. The staff are pretty efficient and speak fairy good English. There are train times on the wall. Above where you buy tickets is a screen with information about the trains including delays, most trains run a little late. There’s a 7/11 very close to the train station where you can buy drinks and snacks.
Such a colorful little antique train station. Great for some colorful photography. Well worth a visit. There are little shops and street food near the station. Can take train to/from Bangkok, much safer then the roads...
So called the oldest train station on Thailand surrounded with heritages. It’s nice for quick visit and the coffee shop next door offers decent coffee too. Along the way there are also lots of shop for local food and touristic stuff to buy.
Hua Hin Railway Station. This is Thailand's most beautiful train station. The wooden building used to be a royal pavilion in Sanamchan Palace, Nakhon Pathom province. It was rebuilt at Hua Hin in 1968. Behind the station is the Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, the very first Golf course in Thailand. In 1834, before the name Hua Hin was coined, some agricultural areas of Phetchaburi Province were hit by severe drought. A group of farmers moved southward until they found a small village that had bright white sands and a row of rocks along the beach. They settled here and gave it the name Samore Riang, which mean rows of rock. In 1921 the director of the state railway, Prince Purachatra, built the Railway Hotel close to the beach. King Prajadhipok - Rama VII liked the place so much that he built a summer palace there. The palace was named Wang Klai Kang Won ( Far from Worries ). It is now the full-time residence of His Majesty the King of Thailand. His Royal Highness Prince Krom Phra Naresworarit was the first member of the royal family to build a group of palaces at Ban Laem Hin, called Sukaves, and he give the name Hua Hin to the beach next to his palace.

Hua Hin Station has been considered to be the most beautiful station in Thailand. We think that's for sure! We traveled by train from Bangkok Hua Lamphong to Hua Hin and were really impressed by the beautiful and authentic train station in Hua Hin.

The train journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin takes from about 3 hours 21 minutes to about 4 hours 30 minutes depending upon which train you take.

Super cheap and perfect services from all staff of the State Railway of Thailand (SRT). Our compliments to all responsible people. Excellent!!
