My feeling is that this connection time is way too tight. Any experiences?

The bus is just one level down from where you come out from the customs point but I would say you have virtually no chance of getting off the aircraft and through immigration that quickly, particularly if your flight arrives at one of those gates that is a kilometer from immigration.

On the HH map it shows two bus stations. [Link removed, no competing websites please, our own map will be updated shortly.]
Can someone confirm which one that I use for this bus going to BKK?
Thanks

It's neither of those, it's a new one further south past Market Village shopping mall:

Have heard now that they are looking to increase the service with extra buses probably starting next month, they're also seemingly looking around for new premises/new station. Still don't know any more specific details but will post when I do.

Used this service twice recently, absolutely spot on and a welcome alternative to the vans-from-hell.

It is the most comfortable bus I have ever been on!

I'll second that. I've used it twice in the last month, both times leaving from Hua Hin at 7am. It was about 5 minutes late leaving one time, but apart from that everything okay. Arrived at airport about 10.15am both times.
Both times only had about 8-9 passengers. I think they'd want to improve on that to make it profitable.

Hopefully, if they continue to provide a reliable service, more people will have the confidence to book it going to and from the airport.

I am going to give it a bash on my next trip. Just wondering if they can squeeze in the golf clubs.....

That was exactly my reaction, National Coaches don't have anything like that back home.

I arrive at BKK Airport at 11:30am on Tuesday. Is there a bus leaving for Hua Hin close to that time? If so do I need to book in advance or can I just pay and go? Or, can I pay at the airport when I land? How much was the bus charges one way?
Thanks in advance.
