The easiest option is to not travel to Hualamphong unless you need to. Your train will go through Bang Sue Junction which is much closer to Don Muang, say about 20 minutes in a taxi.

Hi,

Follow the advice given by Gippy300 above, all trains which depart Hualamphong for Hua Hin stop at Bang Sue Junction.

One way to go - buy a 3rd class ticket from Don Muang Railway Station to Bang Sue station - then get on the first train heading south (going to the left as you face the station from the airport - or going to the right as you face the station from the Amari Airport Hotel) that has 3rd class cars - and get down at Bang Sue {often the 3rd stop in the sequence Don Muang-Laksi-BangKhen-BangSue-SamSen-Hualamphong}. Most trains other than Special Express overnight trains and railcars have 3rd class cars.

Will you already have your ticket(s) between Bangkok (or Bang Sue) and Hua Hin? If not, you could buy tickets at Don Muang or Bang Sue train stations. Other than for 3rd class, tickets include seat reservations - so you have to pick your train. 3rd class seating is unreserved - with 3rd class cars potentially with lots of space - or packed to the rafters - by the time they reach Bang Sue. By preference between Bangkok and Hua Hin is 2nd class seats (aircon or not should both be acceptably comfy on a moving train). For schedules and more info, grab the "book" linked to just below:
