About the ride from Pattaya to Hua Hin

Many tourists take the convenient trip to Hua Hin from Pattaya, an easy and accessible journey which transports tourists between two of Thailand’s most popular mainland beach destinations.
After spending time in Thailand’s most decadent city, you might be ready for something a little more laid-back, and that’s exactly what Hua Hin offers. Though Hua Hin is large, luxurious and modern, it still possesses the charm of a seaside Thai village, so it’s a perfect place for relaxing and recuperating. 
A popular getaway for Bangkok’s residents, Hua Hin offers the perfect combination of city life, seaside adventures, bustling markets and relaxing shores. 
Depending on how you decide to travel from Pattaya to Hua Hin, your journey distance will differ. If you travel by road, it’s around 342 km (212 miles), but if you opt for the shorter - and faster - ferry option, it’s 108 km (67 miles).

What to see when traveling from Pattaya to Hua Hin

The vistas and views offered on your trip to Hua Hin from Pattaya depend upon whether you travel by road or sea.
If you travel by road, the trip isn’t anything exciting, but it’s very comfortable and simple. While some journeys in Southeast Asia offer steep drops, vivid views and the most rudimentary of roads, that isn’t the case here. This part of Thailand is incredibly well-developed, so the journey is largely comfortable, but not the most interesting of jaunts along wide highways.
If you choose to travel by ferry from Pattaya to Hua Hin, the journey is way more beautiful. By ferry, you’ll enjoy deep-blue seas, fantastic views and distant sights of idyllic islands. You’ll also get to experience two of Thailand’s busy piers, which can be an adventure in itself.
