There’s no greater way to travel around Thailand than by train. You get to see the beautiful countryside from a peaceful vantage and you don’t have to deal with traffic. The trains in Thailand certainly have a rustic charm to them, but sometimes they’re a little rusty as well.
The good news for train travelers in Thailand is that all new trains from China are coming our way. 115 new trains are set to arrive. 39 are already here and they look pretty impressive.
The new trains mark a turning point in train services across the nation. The first class cars will have 12 sleeping rooms, all with air conditioning and two seats each. They also have LCD monitors with USB ports so you’ll be able to watch anything you like. The toilets are the same as in aircrafts, which means they’ll be a lot cleaner and security is also enhanced by the inclusion of CCTV systems.
The new trains will be travelling along popular routes such as Bangkok-Chiang Mai, Bangkok to Ubon Ratchathani, Bangkok to Nong Khai and also down south to Hat Yai.
So get ready to travel in style and luxury. Train tickets in Thailand are very affordable so you’ll be able to take an easy ride in these comfy new cars on your next holiday through the land of smiles.
