Many people still choose trains to travel from Bangkok for New Year


Recommended Posts



Trains remain a popular mode of transport for many Thai people during the New Year festive period, with about 89,000 passengers using the service on Thursday and about 70,000 today (Friday).


According to the State Railway of Thailand’s (SRT) public relations office, the north-eastern route reported the highest number of passengers yesterday (25,408 PAX), followed by the southern route (25,327 PAX), northern route (21,677 PAX), eastern route (10,834 PAX), Mahachai route (5,936PAX) and the Mae Khlong route (684 PAX).


Three additional trains were put into service yesterday, two for the north-eastern route and one for the northern route. More carriages were also added to each train to cope with the number of passengers.

Seriously? when I see the OP's picture I wonder how anyone would  board this thing of another age. While the near future should rely on EVs, trains and cars for short commutes.

10,0000 percent safer mode of transport compared with Thai roads.

Somewhat safer on the inside than the outside for sure.... where they share roads, trains win!
