How to Get from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) to Hua Hin

To reach the resort, one can choose buses, private transfer services, or taxis.
Taxi from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport to Hua Hin
A taxi to Hua Hin from Suvarnabhumi Airport costs from 3,000 baht (from around $91). You can hire one via official stands inside the air hub (the rate will be fixed). If you want to save some money, you may first find out the taxi price at the stand and then go outside (to get there, reach the third or fourth floor). There, you may try hailing a vehicle dropping off other passengers. Just come to the taxi driver and start bargaining. It’s possible to agree on a cheaper fare than that offered at stands.
