We are looking to return from Koh Samui to Hua Hin (Dolphin Bay Resort) and I am trying to work out best route for us (2 Ad , 10 year old).
We want to return by train (we're catching the Lomprayah bus from Hua Hin to Ko Tao on way out).
So two options appear to be Ferry from KS to Surat Thani then train or Ferry to Chumphon then train. I have considered pros and cons of both routes (short ferry, long bus transfer, longer train v longer ferry shorter train etc) and would prefer the KS via KT to Chumphon route. So my question is how do we get from Chumphon pier to train station - I couldn't see that this was included in ferry ticket on Lomprayah website.
We want to catch the 8.00am departure that arrives Chumphon 11.45am. Train 40 departs 12.46. Is this enough time to get from pier to station. Also, can we book the tickets from Hua Hin train station when we first arrive there before we depart for KT and KS?
Finally - what is the nearest station to Dolphin Bay - HH or Prachup Kiri Khan - and does train 40 stop at PKK?
Many thanks in advance of your help
