Hua Hin Railway Station

The second day had been kick-started with the visit to one of the most famous sightseeing attractions in Hua Hin with a long cultural heritage and Royal connections which is Hua Hin Railway Station. Let's see the past history of Hua Hin Railway Station, being one of the Thailand’s oldest railway stations, built in the reign of King Rama VI. In addition, it's one of the country's most beautiful train stations with unique architecture.

As Hua Hin Railway Station was not far from the hotel, we followed the map provided and walked to here. The locals here were helpful in giving us the direction too. The railway station was clean and well maintained. The signboard of Hua Hin station was seen from far, here's the first location of the day to have several photos captured.

Such a beautiful railway station that I had ever visited.
The railway station started to be crowded with many tourists came for photo-shooting.

The exquisitely designed Royal waiting room was relocated from Sanam Chan Palace in Nakhon Pathom province, also built during the reign of King Rama VI. The architecture was painted in red and yellow; very well maintained. Anyway, I guessed it wasn't frequently used in the past.

As there was no train passing through, most of the tourists captured photo with the long railway.
It's one of the best place for photo-shooting as the backdrop of railway and railway station were very nice providing several photos' captions that you could think of.

As we checked the train schedule, there wasn't train going to pass by. Hence, we left after 1 and 1/2 hour spent here. Hua Hin Railway Station is a place that worth for visiting if you love photo-shooting and like viewing architectures. It's free of entrance fees and it's worth visiting if have ample time.
