how to get to paradise city ...
Located about a 15 minute drive north of Hua Hin town centre, the airport has had a somewhat chequered past.
There were always intermittent daily flights to Bangkok, but plans to include it on the Bangkok-Hua Hin-Samui and proposed Phuket-Hua Hin-Pattaya routes were shelved.
The close proximity of Hua Hin to Bangkok probably made them financially unviable.
More laterly, the airport went through massive development extending the runway and terminal facilities to upgrade it to an International airport. Again this idea never got off the ground - literally - and the whole concept has been postponed indefinitely, although the development did take place.
Flights from Hua Hin are started up and just as quickly cancelled. Please see the Hua Hin airport and flights forum for latest infomation on flying to and from Hua Hin.
The only way to reliably get to Hua Hin from Suvarnabhumi airport is now by road.
