How to get there
Taxi to Cha-Am from Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport
A taxi from Bangkok & Suvarnabhumi Airport is the quickest and easiest way of getting to Cha Am. The trip should take about 2 - 2,5 hours depending on traffic.
If you require a taxi from Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi) there is an official taxi stand just outside the arrivals hall (look for the sign Public Taxi). The limousine services available are more expensive than an ordinary taxi.
Cha Am is only 180km south of Bangkok and 23km north of Hua Hin. It is just two and a half hour's drive from Bangkok and Suvarnabhumi Airport on the newly updated highway. Car hire can be arrange either from Bangkok airport or for collection from the Condo. If driving for the first time in Thailand from eperience it's better to collect from Condo as it is easy to get lost driving from the Suvarnabhumi airport.
A bus leaves the airport at regular intervals to Cha Am and it has seats where you can lie down, which after a long flight is very welcome. Takes just over two hours and drops you about a 5 minute taxi drive from the Condo.
Thai summer is hot, where their winter is like an english great summer.
Minibus to Cha-Am from Bangkok
Minibuses (or minivans) to Cha am and Hua hin start from Victory Monument in the centre of Bangkok. Catch the BTS Skytrain to Victory Monument. Make sure you take exit #2 and look for the Century shopping centre and the minibuses are just down the stairs on the left hand side, dropping you off at the top of Narathip road ( the main road down to the beach). Minibuses run from 06.00 until 19.00 and depart every 30 minutes or earlier when full.
The space available for luggage is quite small, so if you have big suitcases it's not convenient (you can also be charged - 100 baht per piece of luggage).
