    Hua Hin Railroad Station

    See the original railroad stop in the city centre

    • History
    • Photo

    Hua Hin Railroad Station was built in 1911 and is a short walk from the city centre, offering unique photo opportunities that seem to seamlessly blend East and West. This colorful building in shades of cream, yellow and red has a distinctly Thai architectural style that still somehow looks like it would be right at home on a Victorian-era postcard. The station stands as a romantic reminder of days gone by when Hua Hin was just starting to become a royal seaside getaway town for nobility.

    In the early days, a train was the only way to get here, and this building would be the first thing travelers saw. Today, it's a charming, photogenic spot in the heart of town.
