Bangkok certainly isn’t without its fair share of sights, sounds, and culture that one may experience — an amount that unequivocally requires subsequent visits to fully cover all of it. But once you’ve completed your checklist of the things to do in Bangkok, it’s time to explore beyond the confines of the city!
Outside of the Thai capital are many cultural and scenic destinations that’ll offer a glimpse into the country’s mystical past and rich lore. And truth be told, there isn’t any apropos way to do this than by embarking on a journey on the tracks i.e. by taking a train trip from Bangkok.
Choo Choo, Traveller!
As for which train travel destination you should head to, well, there are a couple of places outside of Bangkok which may beget a visit. For one, the ancient charm of the Historic City of Ayutthaya comes to mind. Whereas, the death-defying trip of a lifetime on the Death Railway can be an exciting journey on its own.
For something a little more light-hearted, a train trip to the quaint seaside town of Hua Hin provides a short reprieve from the constant buzz of activity in Bangkok.
