It will soon actually be feasible to travel between Hua Hin and Bangkok by train.

The new dual track train line in Hua Hin will open later this year and will slash travel time to Bangkok, the government has announced.


Once opened, the train line will drastically cut journey times between Hua Hin and Bangkok from five hours to around two and a half hours, Anucha Burapachaisri, the government spokesman and deputy secretary-general to the prime minister said on Monday (Sept 20).


Travel times will be reduced as the dual tracks will mean that trains will no longer need to stop for one another during the journey.
