About Travel from Nakhon Ratchasima to Bangkok
The journey from Nakhon Ratchasima to Bangkok is one of the best on Thailand’s train network. The journey starts with a journey through the mountainous area between Pak Chong and Ayutthaya.
From there the train makes its way through the plains on the approach to Bangkok. The trip through the suburbs of Bangkok provides travellers with seldom seen glimpses of hard to reach places in Bangkok, including it famous ‘Railway Market’ area and less well known temples and river views. This short journey is a pure pleasure and we recommend doing the journey during the day time at least once.
