Hua Hin

Post by BobHelm » October 4, 2017, 5:33 pm

I am thinking about spending a couple of days in December exploring Hua Hin, as I have not been that way before.
I am wondering about the best way of getting from Don Mueang down to it though.
I understood that there were minibuses running from Victory Monument but, in the back of my mind, I seem to remember reading in the Bangkok Post that had discontinued.
Can anyone confirm, either way.

Also there are Taxi's adverting on the web that can be pre-booked on line for about 2,400 baht 1 way.
As there will be 4 of us going would this be a better alternative??

They moved from Victory Monument to Mo Chit 2 bus station.IMO much better than a taxi.

Why not drive down ...... far less hassle, cheaper, and you have your wheels there to do your exploring.

By the time you get to the airport/check in/sit around for an hour /fly down/wait for luggage/get taxi into BKK from DM/ get bus/taxi from BKK to HH/get taxi from drop off point to hotel .............. you wouldn't be far away in the motor (800km would be one tankful or about B1800?)

We used Hua Hin Cab 🚕

http://huahincab.com/booking/

In August just gone and had a 3 year old top of the range Toyota pick take 4 of us to HH from survanabhumi to our hotel by Blueport Shopping Complex for 2200THB -
Can recommend them, on time, waiting for us and a good driver.

Email : booking@huahincab.com

I’m sure they’d quote for a Don Mueng trip

2x year I stay at Novotel Cha Am and book a car with thaicalltaxi.
From DMK 2100B 2 adults 1 child.
You might need to order an Innova or similar, slightly more expensive.
Always had good drivers, takes about 3h, will use them again.

Just got back from HH and noticed taxi companies were advertising HH - Swampy B1500 and B1600. Would assume DM - HH would be a bit cheaper (didn't see any ads)

North of Udon to South of HH took less than that for 3 of us to get there using own wheels :-k

Although it is not the cheapest option (and it may not be available from every hotel), over the last few years I have been pre-booking transport directly with hotels that I will be staying at (or as part and parcel of a tour arrangement).

The biggest advantages being the time saved getting through the airport and that there is a better than average chance that the driver not only knows exactly where he is taking you, but probably the best way of getting there.

The hardest part is actually finding your driver at DM or Swampy amidst the hundreds of other pre-booked drivers.

Yes 747, I saw posts that advertised B2000+, and was just pointing out that the "official :lol: " taxis in HH were advertising far cheaper (before any negotiating) than the "on line" offers.

We're going to HH on our next trip, we will drive down as we like the flexibility of being able to move about if we want to. Does anyone have any hotel recommendations?

Nice beach, a bit of nightlife suitable for middle aged fat boys without prozzies driving us mad and I dunno 1,000 to 2,000 baht a night? No kids.

I would say avoid Cha Am (slightly to the north of Hua Hin) if you're after beach; as the beach is somewhat thin up there. Hotel depends, -- what's the budget? Def hit the walking street in Hua Hun for great open air seafood grilling at night. We went there every night and never tired of it. A bit down (i.e., towards the beach) from the walking street area you'll find some nice art galleries, too.
