About Travel to Bangkok
There is a lot to see on the 729 km train journey from Lamphun to Bangkok, so much so in fact that many travellers choose to take either Train #102 or Train #8, which both complete nearly the entire journey in daylight. One of the main reasons why you might choose to travel by train, as opposed to the much faster option of travel by plane, is because of the scenery you see along the way and this certainly applies on the Lamphun to Bangkok train route. The most exciting part of the journey is the 244 km section of the journey between Lamphun and Uttaradit. The reason this part of the journey is the most exciting is because the train winds its way over two ranges of hills, one in the Doi Khun Tan National Park and the other on the edge of the Lan Nam Nan National Park. The train also negotiates its way through 4 train tunnels on this section of the route, the longest of which is the 1,352 metre long Khun Tan Tunnel.
The scenery flattens out after Uttaradit as the train passes into the Central Region of Thailand, which is the main rice producing area of Thailand and there are plenty of large rice fields to see along the way. The flat water filled rice fields attract lots of bird life and you should see a number of species common to the area, such as the Asian Openbill, from your train window. The seemingly endless flat expanse of rice fields is broken up by small towns and a handful of large cities on the way. Particularly interesting are Lopburi, which has a Khmer era temple covered in monkeys clearly visible from the train, and Ayutthaya which has many Buddhist temples dating back to its heyday as the capital of Thailand in the 17th Century. As final treat on this journey, by which time it will be growing dark, you pass through the lesser scene outer suburbs of Bangkok and through the part of Bangkok with functioning Royal Palaces before the train terminates at Hua Lamphong Station, in the heart of Bangkok’s atmospheric China Town.
