The station building is largely made of wood and designed in Victorian Style. The building and even the station signs follow the same striking colour combination of red and beige. The interiors of the station building match the ornate exterior. The most photographed part of the building is the Sanam Chandra Palace Railway Pavilion, which was moved from Sanam Chandra Palace in 1967 to its current location at Hua Hin Train Station for use as royal waiting room. The building itself is complimented by well maintained garden and a peaceful train lined location a short distance from the sea front.

Ticket Counters at Hua Hin Train Station

The ticket counters at Hua Hin Train Station are open all hours of the day as there are train arrivals and departures at nearly all times of the day. The ticket counters are rarely busy and you should have little difficulty in getting served. Where you might have more difficult is if you try to book a sleeper berth on the same day as you travel. Outside of peak periods around the time of Thai national holidays and around the time of the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan  you can normally buy a ticket for a seat only on a train. If you want to secure a sleeper seat we suggest that you book in advance online.
