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

 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.

Or just take a taxi to Sai mai

I wouldn't trust anyone's opinion that's not backed up by an air quality meter, reading pm2.5. I was in Hua Hin in early December, after reading a lot of posts saying the air is great down there. I had a meter. Each day was worse than Chiang Mai.

 

I understand that can happen on a temporary basis, so I have no idea what the air quality is now.

Try PKK Prachuap Khiri Khan 1 hour more by train from HH

i live 15km south of town always a breeze here and air quality a lot better than BKK

Plus plenty of hotel guesthouses in PKK or Klong wan ( no i dont own a Hotel or gh)

yeah that one is really amazing, totally different then any other place in Thailand. Just visited it.

Was in the oldest hotel there, right on the sea. OK no beach overthere, only with low tie (at night)

SOme further away there is a beach, where mostly Thai are bathing and playing.

You can climb monkey mountain for a magnificent view. Beware the poo. Monkeys dont really bother you.

You could say Prachuap looks a bit boring for tourists. You could also see the other monkeys, special ones they have there, bril langur monkey, but they were on military compound but are allowed after checking in with the guard.

As its open to the sea all, you dont have bad air.

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.

94 - Not really bad compared to Beijing
