Hua Hin Railway Train Station

Hua Hin Railway Train Station Thailand

Built during the reign of King Rama VI, just a short distance from the centre of town, Hua Hin’s railway station and nearby the attractive royal waiting room stands.

The brightly painted buildings made of wood have a Thai concept and design, however, has a Victorian feel to it. The story of Hua Hin started as a royal seaside getaway town with its historic railway station.

 

In the early days, there was no road access to this pleasant beach town, and train travel was a new and wonderful alternative from Bangkok to Hua Hin instead of travelling by the normal alternative method by boat.

Brief History – The Birth of Hua Hin With the train station in place and the northern-southern rail line connecting Bangkok and as far south as Singapore in 1921, the town was gradually built around it.

European expatriates would travel from Penang and Singapore to enjoy a beautiful seaside vacation in Hua Hin. Later a road was constructed from the train station to the beach where the town’s first luxury hotel stood.
