    The best day time train to book is Train #22 which has 3 carriages of air-conditioned 2nd and 3rd class seats. Meals and drinks are included in the ticket price on Train #22. Of the 4 overnight trains the best service is Train #24 which uses the State Railway of Thailand’s brand new train carriages introduced into service in November 2016. 1st and 2nd class air-conditioned sleeper berths are available on Train #24. Train #142 is the worst of the overnight services because the only seat types available are fan cooled 2nd and 3rd class seats, which are cheap but you will not get a comfortable night’s sleep on Train #142 for this reason.

    Fantastic scenery on route from Ubon Ratchathani to Bangkok

    There is some great scenery on route from Ubon Ratchathani to Bangkok, particularly in the section of the North Eastern Line between Nakhon Ratchasima and Ayutthaya. You pass by a large lake, mountains, temples and a magnificent hillside Buddha visible only from the train. In order to see this great scenery need to get up early and take Train #72 departing from Ubon Ratchathani at 05:40, or take the slow train, Train #136, departing at 07:00. All the other trains pass through the most scenic sections of the North Eastern Train line at night and you will see nothing. If you are travelling by train from Ubon Ratchathani to Bangkok because you enjoy train travel then consider taking Train #72 or Train #136 and forgo comfort for the great views on route.
