It's a handsome map! 8) but probably has a few errors now. It popped up right near the top on a Google search for the road name/hua hin/blue bus/map. Pete :cheers:

Note: The map interactive capability still works as well. :D

...........[Edit] Does anybody know what date that map is? I've found it fascinating looking around it, and the changes. Of particular note is the area where Baan Kun Por is these days.
If you right click it you get the below:

A couple of weeks ago they told us the last bus was midday. Useful to know about the evening ones, though arriving in Bangkok about 7pm isn't really appealing.
She never said that to me although I was asking about times on Saturday. I took a photo of the timetable as I was unsure of which transportation method I was taking which I've posted below. There is a note saying the ones after 12 are Fri,Sun only.

Apologies for the confusion, I only posted it to assist as someone quoted buses go every 30 mins and I didn't want any members to be sat at the station for hours waiting for a bus that wasn't going to arrive ! :thumb:

I couldn't be bothered to rotate the hand written return times after shrinking it.

Thank you very much Pagey. When I saw the link on the Tourism Hua Hin site I was encouraged by the frequency, and thought I could use them. However, that new timetable has reduced considerably, and probably doesn't have the flexibility I need.

Having said that, is the latest time on the non-rotated timetable 22:30? That could be useful.

Is this perhaps a low season reduced timetable or do you think it’s in response to more people now using other routes to get to Bangers?
Now semi retired 60:40 Thailand: UK ( seems to be working well)

I think the nicer airport service and Sombat Tours service must have had a significant impact.

Not to mention how old and rattley the Pran Tours buses are.
