OMG, I've just had a killer 13 hour drive North, and a 12 hour drive home again because I couldn't find suitable flights from Suvarnabumi, and getting to and from Don Mueng is such a nause. If only I'd known last Friday :cry:

Google's Thai translation may be crap, but it's better than mine.

Well, I actually fell for it. I (wrongly) assumed:

- Big bus to Don Muang, there must be a bus station for the return trip, but no, it does what it says on the tin - a bus service to Don Mueng only. There is no service from Don Mueng to Hua Hin :? :cuss:

- Their web site would tell the truth i.e. only 3 seats across - wrong, there are 4 seats across (on the computer seating plan).

Anyway, I'd already booked my flights from and to Don Mueng in anticipation of a return service - OK, shit happens. We go to the counter to buy an outgoing ticket. I'd already read the posters and web site (I was doubtful about a return service at that point), and had decided the 0900 departure would be perfect. Arrive at 12:30(ish). Have a bite of lunch, check in, and mooch about for a couple of hours before departure.

The response was, "What time is your flight?"

"16:20" we reply.

"Sorry, I can't sell you a ticket for that day," was the unexpected response.

"Why?" I ask.

"The bus doesn't arrive until 18:00. You will miss your flight," she says.

"But we want tickets on the 09:00 departure," is my reply.

With a grunt, we were sold 2 tickets.

We enquired about homeward journey, and were told that we'd need to get a taxi to Viphawadi. We would have been pushing it to pick up the bus at Don Muang, so definitely wouldn't have time to take a taxi to somewhere instead.

I've booked the Suvarnabuhmi bus for the return journey.

Definitely not the service I was hoping for.

Any update on this service? Is the pick-up point at Hua Hin bus station or opposite the temple (near Starbucks)?
The website is pish!
I need to get to Don Mueang this evening.
Cheers,
GN.

Anything else you need to know?

Don't use the Latest Topics box on the right. It's just a truncated version of the thread. Go to "new posts" or "unread posts" under Quick Links In the dark grey area upper left. Pete :cheers:

I'm pretty sure that the bus you're after goes from the bus station that the airport bus uses, on Petchakasem road next to 96/1.

Get to the end of 96 (Petchkasem end), turn right and it's about 10 yards down the road,
