I need to Get out of the Dest, How is the air in Hua Hin

Recommended Posts

I cant go to Cambo because of flight restrictions and weight carrying, and I cant play Boom Boom so no sence going to Pattaya. Its dusty here in BKK and Im tired of walking the malls, especially ICONSiam with its deady walk of pastries.

 

So my choice right now to go anywhere is by train. How is the air in Hua Hin?

On this website, you can get realtime AQI for Bangkok, and if you zoom out, gives you all of Thailand, and the world too.

 

You will see that today, BKK is really nasty and dangerous air. Hua Hin is not listed, the only green quality air is in Korat, Khon Kaen, NE, and in Phuket, and in the south of Thailand.

One of the best deals in tourism is the weekend tourist train from BKK to Kanchanaburi.  It was 120 baht round trip/ same day.  Not sure what it costs now. 

 

I used to buy 2 R/T tickets, going up on Saturday and coming home Sunday evening.  There was always a room available, anywhere from 250 baht to the sky's the limit.  That was my favorite weekend getaway from BKK.

I imagine the air might be fairly decent even now. Obviously, the Eastern Seaboard is horrible now too, but is heavily industrialized. Hua Hin is not, but maybe that Chonburi cloud drifts over to Hua Hin?

Hua Hin air is far better than Bangkok, right now. And if you travel further south, by rail, you get to Prachuap. It is far better there, and a delightful seaside town.

 If you are concerned about air quality, why would you want to ride in a stinky diesel car to HH (8.05,  2nd class with spotty AC that can sometimes run too cold or too noisy or too odiferous, and that can leave one with a sore throat for the rest of the day)? Sad to say but the most suitable train departure in the morning (9.20) is an open window train 3rd class, that leaves you grimy at the end of the journey  or gasping for air during the long, slow ride.  Take the airport link BTS to BKK  and then hop on the  airport bus to Hua Hin. It's cleaner and faster.
