Train Stations in Bangkok
Most foreign visitors to Bangkok only ever use Bangkok’s main train station, Hua Lamphong, which is the start and finish point for nearly all railways lines in Thailand. Depending on your final destination, however, Hua Lamphong Railway Station may not be the best station at which the leave the train. Hua Lamphong Railway Station is located in Bangkok’s China Town area near to the Chao Phraya River. If you are planning to travel to the Khao San Road area of Bangkok, or to visit the Grand Palace or the temples in Rattanakosin Island, or to stay in China Town, then it makes sense for you to continue your journey all the way to Hua Lamphong at the end of the train line. However, if you are planning to travel to most other parts of Bangkok, or to either of the two airports in Bangkok, then you will find it quicker to leave the train at Bang Sue Train Station and continue your journey by local transport.
Bang Sue Railway Station is located to the North of Bangkok’s main train station 5 stops (7.47 km) before Hua Lamphong Railway Station. This last stretch of railway line from Bang Sue Station to Hua Lamphong is the most congested part of Thailand’s railway network and trains move very slowly through this part of Central Bangkok, and it is common for this last part of the journey to take 30 to 40 minutes and sometimes longer. If you alight at Bang Sue Railway you can walk out of the train station and straight into the adjacent MRT (metro) station. Bangkok’s metro service runs south from Bang Sue Station terminating at Hua Lamphong Train Station via popular destinations in Bangkok such as the Sukhumvit Road and the Silom Road. Bang Sue Train Station is also close to Bangkok’s Northern Bus Terminal (5.2 km by taxi) and Don Mueang Airport (17.2 km). For journeys to the Sukhumvit Road area in particular if you alight at Bang Sue Railway Station and take the metro you normally find that you arrive at the Sukhumvit Road before the train you were travelling on even gets into Hua Lamphong Train Station.
