    Back to nature

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 08/12/2016

    » Kanchanaburi has long been a popular destination for day trippers. However, the scenic Sai Yok National Park and several caves and rafting on the Kwae Noi River seem overlooked by Thai tourists. These places are worth visits besides the infamous Death Railway and the Hollywood-misnamed "Bridge On The River Kwai" that remain popular tourist spots.

    • Sean Moran commented : PM People will be able to buy railway tickets online, starting Sunday, according to State Railway of Thailand (SRT) governor Yutthana Thapcharoen. He said the online ticketing system will initially be tested for 16 routes for six months, and believed it can help increase the number of railway passengers by 30 per cent. Some of the routes include Bangkok-Chiang Mai, Bangkok-Ubon Ratchathani, Bangkok-Trang, Bangkok-Nakhon Si Thammarat, Bangkok- Sungai Kolok, and Bangkok-Butterworth. The SRT is also experimenting with using smart cards to buy railway tickets in convenience stores, Mr Yutthana said. Starting Sunday, people can buy railway tickets online by clicking on the ‘E-Star’ banner on the SRT website at http://www.railway.co.th ================================================================================================= has anyone use the railways to travel around Bangkok? appreciate any comments[/quote:1xw4v5z9] Would Hat Yai to Bangkok count as travelling around Bangkok? Having ridden the Honda from Nonthaburi down to Nakhon, and then Hat Yai, it seemed at the time to be possibly safer as well as cheaper than stopping for gallons more benzine all the way back up the peninsular. Not necessarily... I didn't expect to pay more for freighting the bike than I did for my own seat. After arriving at the station, the bike was weighed and freight priced. For myself the fare was 905 thb. For the bike, 916. Perhaps it was less risky catching a train from Hat Yai than riding a motorbike (arguably), but the Honda was more comfortable and far more friendly. It's a long train running all the way from Hat Yai : [img:1xw4v5z9]http://www.geocities.com/smoranean/img/gall/hatyaist02.jpg[/img:1xw4v5z9] [i:1xw4v5z9]Hat Yai Station looking towards Bangkok, September 14th, 2006.[/i:1xw4v5z9]
