"a relatively simple regional airport"
Timothy Irvin (Australia)
✅ Trip Verified | Hua Hin airport offers a direct connection to the resort city of Hua Hin and the surrounding towns of Prachuap and Cha Am, and saves the visitor the relative hassle of a 3 and half hour bus ride from BKK airport and a similar time from DMK, Don Meuang, Bangkok's other airport. Especially if you are coming from Malaysia. The only airline currently operating a service into Hua Hin is Air Asia, God bless them, from Kuala Lumpur to Hua Hin. The route has been a success and rumour has it that other routes will open up from Hua Hin, ideally Chiang Mai to begin with. OK, to the airport review! It's a relatively simple regional airport. With 2 check-in counters, a small snack counter and adequate seating in the check-in area. You go upstairs by escalator to passport control, security and then the departure lounge (again with adequate seating and a bathroom). There is plenty of car parking by the airport, and about 100 metres out of the main gate is a Family Mart (like a 7-11) which sells snacks. To get in to Hua Hin you can catch a taxi, or walk out the gate and catch a Green song-tao (10 baht to town, then another 10 baht if going on in the direction of Market Village and Khao Takiab). One of the pleasures of using the Air Asia service is that as the plane pulls away from the terminal building the ground staff wave you goodbye (Thai gesture of respect), it's a nice touch. Anyway, many thanks to Hua Hin airport and Air Asia for making this route a reality.
