Bangkok and Hua Hin

We are going to Thailand early next year for 9 days for the first time. I would like to stay in Bangkok and Hua Hin for the this 9 days either staying in BKK for 3 days and 3 days in Hua hin and then back to BKK for another 3 days before flying home.

Or

I was also thinking of going straight to Hua Hin from BKK airport on arrival staying for maybe 5 days and BKK for 4 days so I can do all Bangkok stuff, shopping, etc and head home, the only thing is that my flight arrives at 7.30pm and after immigration, etc will be probably be out of the airport by 8pm, and considering Hua Hin is 3 hours+ might be too late? Will also have to arrange for transportation from BKK airport to Hua Hin. What do others think of this?

Thanks everyone for your input.

Yes it will mean arriving at your hotel in Hua Hin about 23.00hrs, this in itself is not a problem although it would be best to advise the hotel of your expected late arrival, (assuming of course that the Hotel you have chosen has 24hr reception desk some small guest houses may not) The thing is after a long flight do you fancy a 3+ hours drive.

Personaly I like to split my time up in Bangkok as you originaly thought and I would do 2 days Bangkok 4 days Hua Hin and 3 days Bangkok, but of course it is a personal preference thing.

As for transport to Hua Hin from the airport you could take a taxi, use the airport limo company or book through someone like oriental escapes.There is also a bus service but the last one is at 19.30hrs.

Be aware..be very aware....Once you have been down in Hua Hin for a few days you will develop symptoms commonly known as the "Hua Hin Shuffle"..it's not terminal by any means but is addictive!!

Personally I would do Bangkok, Hua Hin (by train) then back to Bangkok. As said it is a personal preference. Have fun whatever you choose!!!

I have done bangkok and hua hin a few times. I think my personal choice would be go down to HH for a few days then back to bangkok at the end for a few days shopping and sightseeing. If you go straight to HH it will take no longer than 3 hours by taxi, then you could bus/train back , very cheap. Do lots of shopping before flying home.
