Overnight Train experience in Thailand

I love travelling by train normally, almost all the countries that I’ve been to, I take the train to go around, if there are any.

Thailand is a great country for train travels, distance from north to the southern islands. Plus Thai train is quite cheap, with OK comfort (enough comfort for me).

I took the overnight train from Malay-Thai border to Bangkok two months ago and it was a horrible experience, which made me almost want to quit backpacking (only at that moment), mainly because of the hassles at the border, plus I was unlucky enough to have someone spill soup on me, on the 16 hour train, can you believe that! Luckily Bangkok was so much fun, I forgot the train quickly after I arrived.

Still, train in Thailand can be a great experience if (most likely) you won’t be that unlucky like I was.

Thai train still looked the same as 7 or 8 years when I did my first solo trip. Was great memory, I felt immediately nostalgic when I saw it, back then I did a lot of train ride.

At night they will turn the seat into the bed for you.

If you order food, they will make a table for you. Coffee…is not as good as in Vietnam.

Train arrived at several stations in Bangkok, before the main station, I jumped out the closest one to the hotel, and walked to the hotel.

I’ve written a post about the story. (That’s how angry I was, because these days I mainly shitpost on Steem but that day I made a long post!):

Siam BKK

My last trip to BKK was almost 7 years ago, time really flies!

I don’t remember much of the city to be honest, because back then I almost had never travelled to the tropic, so I couldn’t stand the tropic sun. Except for a few day escape to the jungle to the north of Bangkok, my Bangkok trip was simply to stay in any shopping center in Siam and to eat Thai food.

Apparently I changed a lot, nowadays I can walk for hours under the tropic sun without a problem. I guess this time I’ll finally visit palace and temples, as I didn’t go to any of those in my last trip lol.

But firstly, the same old best Siam!

I don’t think I remember much.

Some random pictures.

Siam Center is so cool hahaha, full of cute Korean makeup shops haha.

Thailand is a destination in many people’s travel bucket list or many have already been to. It’s a super tourist friendly country. Great food, nice weather, friendly people.
