Transport to Bangkok from PKK or Hua Hin?

    Planning to arrive by train from Malaysia, and spend a few days in PKK (and maybe 1 night in Hua Hin ) before heading to Bangkok.
    What are the transport options from these places to Bangkok? Taking the night train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai (which departs around 19:45 hours, I believe). Would prefer to travel from either PKK or Hua Hin on the same day, but don't want to risk missing the train to Chiang Mai (as we'll have booked and paid for sleepers).
    Train seems preferable, as there would be no trekking from a bus station to the Bangkok train station, but can't find a train that arrives in Bangkok in the afternoon.
    Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.
    Cheers

    Check out Train 176. It leaves PKK at 10:03 and arrives in Thonburi Station at 16:10. Ask about it at the station when you arrive in Hua Hin to see if this is daily, or if there are any restrictions.

    Easy to get to Hualamphong from Thonburi Station. There is a pier that services the station where you can get a boat that will take you over to the pier (Tha Chang) at the Royal Palace. From there you can just get in a cab. The station is about 2 or 3 km from there. Or you can just take a cab from Thonburi Station.
