By Road, Hua Hin is about 165 km from Bangkok. Take the Highway 35 to Cha-Am. From Cha-Am to Hua-Hin, a further 25 km by Highway 4, daily coach services between Bangkok and Cha-Am & Hua-Hin are available from Bangkok Southern Bus terminal. By rail, daily trains leave Bangkok for Cha-Am & Hua-Hin. Hua-Hin in Prachuabkirikhan Province and Cha-Am in Petchburi are two popular seaside resorts to the south of Bangkok. Despite their locations on different provinces, it takes about 20 minutes drive to travel between them. Most Thais often mention them together. Hua-Hin is in fact the oldest beach resort of the country and is still as popular as ever. The construction of a railway station here in the reign of King Rama VI (1910-1925) and a summer palace of King Rama VII in 1926 transformed a quiet fishing village into the resort town popular among those from high society.
When Hua-Hin was booming, Cha-Am was just unknown to the outsiders. But when people of high ranks sought a new place for relaxation, Cha-Am's beauty was discovered and the place was quickly developed. Today Hua-Hin and Cha-Am are still among Thailand's favorite tourist's attraction. The twin resorts together with
their nearby attractions are introduced below.
