Getting to Hua Hin from Phuket

What are my options for getting from Phuket to Hua Hin? We will be in Phuket for our Honeymoon and would like to hit Hua Hin for a couple of days before we had back to BKK to catch our flight back State side.

We are flexible in terms of price and means of transport - hoping for some direction on where to search!

Thanks in advance!!

I believe there are buses, hopefully someone can advise. Otherwise, you could take a train to Surat Thani and travel to Phuket by bus or quite possibly minivan.

There are buses such as the Yellow Bus company which ply daily between the the 2 places, don't know where they leave from in Phuket but in Hua Hin its near to the Venesia complex. Then there are the VIP buses that stop off in Hua Hin between Phuket and Bangkok and likewise there are blue buses doing the same.

Not familiar with any details but a check at the Phuket bus station would give you the times and cost involved, travel time would be around 10 hours.

From Phuket Town to Hua Hin regular a/con express buses heading to Bangkok that stop in Hua Hin, but these tend to pass through Hua hin around 2 or 3 am which is not very convenient at all, costs is something like THB 750-850

You can fly to Bangkok and then take the airport bus to Hua Hin ( or taxi / car service )

You can get a car transfer service from you hotel in Phuket to your hotel in Hua Hin and have a couple of rest / food stops on the way , distance from Patong / Kata / karon on Phuket to central Hua Hin is 660 - 680 km depending where you are staying in each place, journey time including stops ( we have done the road trip countless times over the years ) about 8 hours

Cost I am wild guessing probably about THB 8,000 ( approx US$ 265 ) - sounds a lot but if you started adding together taxi from hotel in Phuket to Phuket airport, air fares, then taxi or bus at the other end not so bad for both of you.

Rent a car and drive there yourself. Bigger rental companies allow pick up and drop off in different locations. Take two or three days and stop in for example Chumpon and Prachuap Khuri Khan.
