Hua Hin Railway Station
Hua Hin Railway Station is probably the prettiest railway station in Thailand and conveniently close to the town centre. Hua Hin’s distinctive red and creme coloured wooden station building was built in 1925 and is one of just a handful of wooden train station building from that era which is still in use. The building has been beautifully maintained and complimented by flower gardens installed around the edge of the station.
The thing that makes Hua Hin Railway Station extra special is its association with the Thai Royal Family who have maintained out of town residences in Hua Hin since the 1920s and regularly used the station to travel from and from Bangkok. In 1967 the Thai Royal Family donated a wooden pavilion from the Sanam Chandra Palace to Hua Hin Railway Station which has now been installed on Platform 1, originally for use as a waiting room for the Royal Family. You cannot go inside the pavilion but you can see it from the outside and pretty much everyone who goes to Hua Hin Railway Station has their photograph taken in front of the pavilion. If you travel from Bangkok south on the Southern Railway Line towards Surat Thani in the day time look out on from left side of train as you stop in Hua Hin and you will see the old wooden station building and the Royal Pavilion.
