Train Schedules for Thailand

Trains connect with bus and boats to cover travel to Phuket, Koh Tao, Koh Samui, Koh Phanghan and other tropical islands of Thailand's coast. Thailand has one of the best rail systems in the world, and train travel is easily the best way to get around & see the country. Train travel in Thailand is comfortable, safe, cheap, and environmentally friendly.

Taking the train is easily the best way to travel between Bangkok & Chiang Mai, a train+ferry combo is the best way from Bangkok to Ko Samui, and a train+bus combo is the best way from Bangkok to Krabi, Phuket, Hat Yai and Koh Lipe. Taking the train is also a great way to travel between Bangkok, Penang, Kuala Lumpur & Singapore, the 1,233-mile journey to Singapore takes 48 hours one-way including a sleeper berth for both nights.

To get to Phi Phi by train is fairly simple. Krabi does not have a train station, but it's easy to get there by taking the train to Suratthani (or coming up from the South, a train to Hat Yai) and then an air-conditioned bus to Krabi, and boat to Phi Phi.

The State Railway of Thailand operates three different train classes.
First Class: One small private air conditioned compartment for two persons. Each cabin includes a sink and a stow away table. This class is available only on selected trains and tends to get booked out first. The compartment consists of two berths, one upper and one lower.
Second Class: Fan or air-conditioned coaches are available in either seat or sleeper. Fan cooled sections tend to get a little hot at night and air-conditioning coaches are the more comfortable.
Third Class: Wooden bench seats suitable for only the more hardened traveller. Third class tickets are sold a few hours prior to departure. No pre-booking is possible in this class.

All classes of train have refreshment facilities and most have full catering cars with cooked meals at reasonable rates. At practically every station food vendors offer local delights from fried chicken to more exotic local delicacies.

Overnight train sleepers:
First class sleepers consist of two full size bunk beds. Second class sleepers are assembled from two facing seats to form the bottom or lower bunk. The upper bunk is a pulled down and unlocked when the beds are made up. All beds use fresh cotton sheets, pillows with cases and laundered, sealed, towel-like blankets. Beds are set up by the train staff at around 9:00 pm and stored away again around 07:00 am. In both classes the beds are around 2m (6.5 ft) in length.
