VIP Bus Service Between Bangkok and Hua Hin, Thailand

There are currently plenty of options for people looking to travel between Bangkok and Hua Hin, Thailand.

The most luxurious and expensive way to travel the 230 kilometres is by helicopter, with the option of taking a private jet only slightly more affordable.

The 2-1 seat configuration on the VIP Bus gives couples and individual travellers a comfortable choice.

Travellers could also rent their own mini-van or car (with driver or without), and of course most of the better hotels are more than happy to provide a limousine service as well, but they can be quite costly.

Of the more affordable options, travellers can take a minibus/van from the centre of Bangkok for around THB 180, or the regular bus service, which costs around 90 Baht and leaves at frequent intervals from the Southern Bus Terminal in the north of Bangkok, some 30 or so kilometres in the wrong direction from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Neither of these two choices are for the faint of heart, as the driving is often erratic and dangerous. The train is another option, but until a high speed, closed-track service is introduced, the current service may be too slow, or just inconvenient for many.

It is possible to cycle between Bangkok and Hua Hin in a day, but it is a long, hot and uninspiring ride along major roads which see more than their fair share of accidents.

This lack of affordable, safe and comfortable quality transport between Bangkok and Hua Hin has finally been addressed though, and today Roong Reuang Coach company offers 7 return journeys per day between Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Hua Hin.

The VIP Bus offers very comfortable seats, nice layout, good drivers, online seat booking and all for just 305 Baht. A bargain!

Configured in a 2-1 configuration the 24-seat buses are new, comfortable and even have seat belts, as well as a toilet.

Tickets cost just 305 Baht, which includes a bottle of water, and can be booked online through a very simple and hassle-free process. You can even see which seats are available and choose where you wish to sit, just as you would on an airline.

Unlike the other buses that operate between Bangkok and Hua Hin, these VIP Buses by Roong Reuang Coach only have two stops after you leave Suvarnabhumi - Cha Am, and the Hua Hin bus station - which reduces the journey time to around 3 hours and 10 minutes.

The VIP buses do have a television but it is turned off once the welcome video has been shown, allowing passengers to relax and get some rest.

If you need to travel between Bangkok and Hua Hin with a good driver and in much more comfort than on a normal bus, then there is currently nothing that really competes at this price level with the VIP Bus Service by Roong Reuang Coach. It is even worth travelling from the centre of Bangkok to catch it at Suvarnabhumi.

The company also offers a similar service between Suvarnabhumi and Pattaya.
