we took a 90 minute train journey over the river
27 December ’15
We took a 90 minute train journey over the River Kwai and west towards Burma today. It cost us just 300 Baht, or £5.50, and it was only that expensive because we opted for the tourist rate to get a guaranteed seat and some snacks. The regular foreigner rate is just 100 Baht, residents travel for free.
The train was particularly busy today because it’s the first day of the New Year holidays, which go on until around January 3rd. This means that Bangkok is relatively quiet this weekend, and should make tomorrow’s journey to the airport easy.
