Turn that long boring transfer into an exciting experience with stops en route on a full-day transfer from Bangkok to Hua Hin. Visit a photogenic rural floating market to see the traditional Thai village lifestyle and stop to enjoy lunch at a local beach.
What to Expect
Transfers don't have to be all business and boredom, and on this full-day transfer from Bangkok to Hua Hin, you don't have to worry about getting somewhere fast, but can instead enjoy your trip to your new destination.
Depart for Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, situated 68 miles (110 kilometers) west of Bangkok, serving as the halfway point between your journey from Bangkok to Hua Hin. Your journey commences with a leisurely drive through rice paddies and salt fields, and if you look carefully you might catch a glimpse of an odd vehicle that will surely remind you of something out of the Flintstones cartoon!
Shortly before arrival at the floating markets, hop off your vehicle and hop on a boat as you travel though a small canal passing through orchards to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Upon arrival you will be fascinated by boats of various shapes and sizes used by local merchants to ferry their goods. You will be amazed at the variety of goods and products that are to be purchased, and you may even try out your own bargaining skills.
Leave the floating markets and head south to the town of Petchaburi, where you will stop at Haad Chao Samram for lunch at a seaside restaurant. The beach here is not well-known by foreign tourists but quite popular with the locals. Legend has it that King Naresuan the Great and King Eka Thotsarot made several royal visits here and highly appreciated its beauty. The villagers thus rendered it a name, "Haad Chao Samran," which means “Beach of Royal Leisure.”
After a short transfer time, you will arrive at your hotel in Cha Am / Hua Hin.
