Previous: High Tea at Sofitel Centara Grand Hua Hin
After having a splendid high tea at Sofitel Centara Grand Hua Hin which retains an age old colonial style architecture and design, we took a stroll to Hua Hin Railway Station. Hua Hin town is easily accessible by foot. It took us less than 10 minutes to reach our destination and be ready to be transported to a bygone era of opulent grace.
Hua Hin Railway Station is indeed Thailand’s most beautiful train station. The rise of Hua Hin also began with the construction of this railway station in year 1968. Its main feature is The Royal Waiting Room that used to welcome King and his court when they were visiting the town. The architecture style and wood is similiar to Maruekkhathayawan Palace (Palace of Love & Hope), which is another attraction not to be missed when you are at Hua Hin.

From Hua Hin Railway Station, it was another 5 minutes walk to Hua Hin Night Market which is located in the centre of town and runs up from Petchkasem Road to the railway line and opens from around 18.00. Hua Hin is a coastal town, hence seafood is aplenty over here. We found a lot of huge size crustaceans here; one just need to pick and the hawker owner will grill it on the spot. Other than the food, there are a wide variety of local handicrafts, souvenirs and clothing on sale.
