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.
