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

transport between Bangkok and Hua Hin has finally been addressed
and today Roong Reuang Coach company offers 7 return journeys per
day between Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Hua Hin.

buses are new, comfortable and even have seat belts, as well as a
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
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.
