For daytime travel we recommend taking Train #72 because it completes the journey in the relatively quick time of 6 hours 10 minutes and it has comfortable and inexpensive 3rd class air-conditioned seats. Train #72 completes the journey around 2 hours quicker than the other three day time trains with 17 stops on route to Bangkok compared with the tedious 24 stops made by Train #136 during the journey from Buri Ram to Bangkok. For overnight travel book either Train #24 or Train #68 both of which have 1st and 2nd class A/C Sleeper berths which you book on online.

However, by booking online you can reserve a 2nd Class Sleeper seat in advance. The best seats on trains in Thailand often sell out a few days before and you may not be able to buy your preferred type of ticket at the station on the day of travel because the train is already fully booked.

The journey from Buri Ram to Bangkok takes passengers past some of the best scenery on the Thai Railway Network, second only to the journey from Bangkok to Chiang Mai.

If you have never travelled this way by train before we recommend that you take one of the daytime trains (Trains #234, #72, #136 or #136). It gets dark in Thailand at around 18:30 every night of the year and you will see nothing from the train if you take any of the later departures from Buri Ram to Bangkok.

The most interesting parts of the journey are:

  • Lumtakong Lake
  • The mountainous areas between Pak Chong and Ayutthaya
  • The temples and markets in the suburbs of Bangkok.
