Since 2017, the connection Ferry Pattaya-Hua Hin is a very convenient link between the two cities. All info to know.
The ferry: a catamaran
The catamaran of the Royal Passenger Liner is a 346-seat boat. It is a boat that has 3 categories: the economy class with 286 seats, the Business Class with 44 seats and two VIP rooms for 8 people each. This boat, new, has air conditioning.
play for time
This link crossing the Gulf of Siam over a distance of 116 km connects the wharves of Balihai Cape (Pattaya) and Khao Takiab (Hua Hin).
The big advantage is the duration of the trip between the two cities. By boat it takes about 2 hours. By road, you have to travel 380 km for 5 to 6 hours of roads (it also depends on traffic jams in the capital). The saving of time is therefore important, but time is money …
A practical but expensive crossing …

|Classe économique||950 bahts||1250 bahts|
|Business Classe||1250 bahts||1550 bahts|
|VIP Room||14000 baths
