Hua Hin buses to the south

These depart Hua Hin from the bus station at the very top (Western end) of Chomsin Road, on the right just before you get to the railway line. Do not confuse this bus station with the one that runs to Bangkok.

Timetables are somewhat erratic, however the departure times from Hua Hin to the following major southern destinations are detailed below. Note: these busses do not have onboard toilets, however "comfort/food stops" will generally be taken every 3-4 hours.

Prachuabkirikhan - every 20 mins starting at 06.30 - 16.00 from the bus station. From 17.00 onwards, the busses leave either the bus station or the central Clock Tower (by Hua Hin Wat), on alternate days until 23.00. ie, Monday from the bus station, Tuesday from the Clock Tower. (You must check these days are correct, but the departure point after 17.00 does alternate by day). PRICE 60 Baht.

Chumphon - departing every hour from 07.30 - 13.00. After 17.00, the same proceedure as above applies, the departure point alternating daily until 23.00. PRICE 160 Baht.

Surat Thani - busses depart hourly from 09.00 - 11.00. Thereafter, there are two departures at 23.00 and 24.00 from the bus station. PRICE 270 Baht.

Ranong/Phuket - departures are at 08.00/10.00/13.00/17.00/18.00/24.00 all from the bus station. PRICE 225 Baht (Ranong)/ 339 Baht (Phuket).

Hat Yai - 09.00/10.00/19.30. All departures are from the bus station. PRICE 500 (approx)

Sungai Kolok - one departure from the bus station at 23.30. PRICE 610 Baht.

It must be emphasised that timing is not always punctual, although departures rarely go before those listed above. Advance booking is not possible on these busses, but there are usually seats available when they reach Hua Hin in the mornings. With the later ones, or those at weekends or Public Holidays, you really do take your chances. It's a great, cheap way to travel but, if you're on a deadline, it might be worth paying some extra and taking a VIP bus and booking in advance. The VIP advance booking office is open at the bus station from 08.00-15.00.
For further information call 032 511230. (Very little English is spoken).
