A Small Gem – Hua Hin Railway Station

Hua Hin Railway

Who would have thought that railway station could be a popular attraction. This red-and-white icon station was built in 1926,  one of the oldest at its original state in Thailand. Hua Hin is known as a royal seaside getaway town. Back in the old days, there was no road access and one has to take boat to visit the beach town. Hence, the train station was built as an alternative access.

Also known as the Royal Waiting Room, the Pavillion was used by Thai Royals when they visited the seaside summer Palace. It was originally part of Sanam Chandra Palace in Nakhon Pathom province and was moved here in 1974.

Train was once the most comfortable way to travel between Bangkok and Hua Hin. Today, the train station is still functioning and you can relive the past by taking the train from Bangkok to Hua Hin which takes about 4 hours.
