5 train lines radiate out from Bangkok to the North, North East, East, South and West towards Northern Myanmar border. Thailand’s train work covers a significant proportion of the country making train travel an integral part of Thailand’s transport infrastructure.
Bangkok to Malaysia and destinations in between such as Hua Hin, Chumphon (connections to Koh Tao), Surat Thani (connections to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan), Hat Yai (also near the Malaysian border) and Sungai Kolok at the far Southern end of the line.
The Northern Line runs from Bangkok to Chiang Mai via historic Ayutthaya, Lop Buri famous for its monkey temple, Phitsanulok which is on the bus route to nearby Sukhothai and Den Chai which is the stopping off point for connections to Phrae.
The Eastern line two branches. The most busy branch goes to to Aranyaprathet on the Cambodia border, via Sa Kaeo. The other line goes first to the East and then South to Pattaya and then onto the coast. We do not recommend using the train to reach Pattaya from Bangkok, it is a lot quicker to travel by bus.
This line splits into two branches beyond Ayutthaya. One branch travels Northwards to Nong Khai via Kho Kaen and Udon Thani. The other branch travel Eastwards to Ubon Ratchathani via Pak Chong, Nakhon Ratchasima and Surin. Pak Chong is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foreign visitors.
This the line where trains depart from Thonburi train station and follow the same route oas the infamous Death Railway built by prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation of Thailand during the Second World War. The major stop on this line is Kanchanaburi, location of the Bridge over the River Kwai.
