Hua Hin is a beautiful beach resort town situated towards the southern south-west of Bangkok. This particular district is so beautiful that it was once the permanent residence of the king.
The Hua Hin Station
You might be wondering what is so special about this train station, and you’ll easily realise its significance the moment you lay eyes on it. For starters, the Hua Hin station looks like a cross between a Thai palace and a Victorian mansion.
The railway line to Hua Hin emerged in 1911, during which time the original station was built. The beautiful station that exists was built by Prince Purachatra Jayakara, who based it off a proposed model for a museum that was never built.
Modern Day Landmark
Due to its distinctive East meets West architecture the Hua Hin station is considered a bit of a heritage site and popular tourist attraction, with many travellers staying in nearby Hua Hin resorts along the likes of Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa making it a point to experience this beautiful landmark.
The Hua Hin Market
The station is particularly beautiful at night, and if you’re visiting after dusk, you should definitely check out the Hua Hin market as well which comes to life 6:30pm onwards.
