Your 2D1N Hua Hin Itinerary and Transportation Guide, Thailand

by - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Easily accessible from downtown Bangkok, if you ever find yourself venturing to Hua Hin, here's the low-down on how you can go about planning for your trip. Hua Hin is a mere 2hours journey by car from central Bangkok and a popular alternative if you are looking to seek adventure elsewhere without compromising time and convenience. Getting there is easy even if you don't drive. Simply hire a private driver for a day or two, who will also be responsible for fetching you around in Hua Hin. 

Here's my Itinerary

Day 1
8am pick up from Bangkok, transfer to Hua Hin.
we visited:
Phra Nakhon Khiri National Park, Khao Wang Palace
- Mrigadayavan Palace
- Hua Hin Beach 
( skip if no time; Unless you would like to watch the sunset, to swim, or ride horses etc.)
- Plernwan
- Hua Hin Night Market (walking distance from accommodation)
Back to hotel

Day 2
9am Pick up from Hotel
- Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park (Phraya Nakhon Cave). Involved taking a boat from inland which requires removal of shoes and walking out to the shallow seabed as there were no docking for boats.
- Hua Hin Hills Vineyards
- Hua Hin Railway Station
- Cicada Night Market
Back to Hotel

Day 3
9am pick up from Hotel transfer back to Bangkok
- Drop off  @1000 Sook Food & Farm
 ( Bonus drop-off along the way. Asked about the possibility with your driver)
- Drop off  @Amphawa Floating Market (Bonus)
- Reached Bangkok about 12pm

Private Driver's Contact

Google search may generate many hits but I was glad to be able to get in touch with Teeb ( short for 'Prateeb'), after having done my share of research and shortlisting of the drivers. Payment was in Baht when we met, amounting to 9800Baht for 2 days, for 2 people in a Toyota Altis.
The payment was split into partial payments over the days. Price quoted was inclusive of petrol, tolls and parking fees.

Contact Person: Prateeb Sratong /( Mr Pussapapa)
I was delegated Teeb, brother of Pussapa (whose name was more "prominent" via search) whom I contacted first.

Teeb was warm and friendly and did his job as a driver and guide well. We liaised via WeChat as they did not use Whatsapp. WeChat ID: Parteeb or pussapa1111

The Wheel Drive 

The car was spacious and clean. For just 2 persons, there was ample space and behold, to our delight, the car was filled with an abundance of snacks! Prior, I have read many reviews of Thai drivers filling up their vehicles with snacks but that was my first time seeing them before my eyes. Totally elated. Yes, these are free and for the guests' consumption. Water bottles were also provided to us throughout our 2 days with Teeb. 
Do note though that such "service" will only, if any, be made available when you secured a private booking with a certain driver on outbound trips. This will not be the case for street-hail rides.

Do I need to highlight that free WiFi was also available in the vehicle? How amazing. 
Having hired my fair share of private drivers in Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan, I was simply wowed by Thailand's service which goes the extra mile with little add-ons as such.

The vehicle serves as a taxi on other days.
