thanks so much for this post!!

 

is there much difference between a 60-day covid visa and a 30-day visa-exempt? i only need a few days before flying out... and this will the end of the Thailand-covid era for me.

 

if not, i might make the trip, just for the fun of it (i like trains. 😃 ), and maybe it'll be cheaper than 1900 baht? maybe... 

 

2 x 18 hours of trains might be too much though =D

darn, i enjoy the day trains... i guess the even slower "rapid" might be choice for me, lol. I'd probably need a break somewhere though...

Can you take a motorbike on those trains?

Not on those trains. There is no luggage car south of Haad Yai although occasionally the shuttle is sometimes an older car which could take a bike.

 

From Haad Yai to Bangkok and vv no problem.
