The story of Hua Hin’s emergence as a seaside getaway for the Bangkok-based royals and elite would be incomplete without mention of this railway station.

One of the oldest in Thailand, it was constructed in 1920 during the reign of King Rama VI, and located on Damnoern Kasem Road. An ornate red-and-cream wooden pavilion dominates the low platform and the colonial-style main building.

An iconic piece of Thai architecture this was once the Royal Waiting Room, originally located in Nakhom Pathom and later rebuilt here in 1968. On the other side of the tracks stands an old English steam locomotive, while at the entrance a couple of old trains have been refurbished and converted into a library.

The main entrance hall also features a fascinating photographic exhibition of the Thai Royal Family.
