About Travel to Bangkok
There is some good scenery on the route from Surin to Bangkok and it is worth choosing to take one of the slower and less comfortable day time trains from Surin to Bangkok in order to travel during the day light.
The best views are between Nakhon Ratchasima and Ayutthaya where the train passes by Lumtakong Lake and through the mountainous areas past Pak Chong. There is also a fantastic buddha statue in the hills about an hour before you reach Ayutthaya. If you want to see it then you need to take either Train #234 (departing at 05:20), Train #72 (departing at 7:49) or Train #136 (departing at 09:39). There are also some interesting things to see from the train as you approach Bangkok, such as the Rot Fai Market where the trains pass within a few feet of market stalls positioned to either side of the train tracks, which you wont see if you take a later train.
