We are thinking about getting the train from Surat Thani to Bangkok stopping off at Hua Hin for a couple of nights. Can anyone recommend a decent hotel to stay close to Surat Thani train station as we will arrive the day before and leave on the morning train. Also how far is the train statin from the main hotel and beach area of Hua Hin. Can we buy the one way Surat Thani train ticket to Bangkok once we arrive in Bangkok the week before directly from the station. Is it possible to get off and get back on again at Hua Hin on the same ticket.
Many thanks for any advice.
