car from airport v hotel?

Hi I am wondering if it would be quicker to leave directly from the bkk airport to travel to Hua Hin or from Intercontinental Bkk?

Even 30 mins would make a difference as we have two small children and are unsure which way to structure our holiday.

thanks

Either would be fine. I assume you're still deciding whether to visit Hua Hin first and then end up in Bangkok, or the other way round.

There is no direct transport from the airport to Hua Hin, so you'd need to arrange a car to pick you up. With kids, I'd say the same would apply leaving from the hotel as getting around with small kids on public transport can be a bit of a nightmare.

If you plan on doing any shopping, then leave Bangkok to last so that you don't have to lug your purchases to and from Hua Hin.

What time does your flight arrive?

I normally arrive in BKK from Australia after midnight so with an arrival time like that I would rather stay in Bangkok first. However when flying back from Europe we normally arrive in the afternoon so it's an easy drive to Hua Hin.

Hi

thanks for your replies.

We are debating whether to fly to Singapore, Chiang Mai, Bangkok Singapore home or just fly to Bkk-Chiang Mai- Hua Hin (obviously via bkk airport) and home.

We will have a private car transfer but I was wondering if it was quicker one way or the other? ie: from Intercontnental BKK (near Chidlom) or from airport?

We have only ever gone from BKK before.

Thanks

It would be a bit quicker from the airport, but not by much.
