There is something magical about a train journey. What better way to explore Thailand’s rich beauty than in a room with an ever changing view. Sit back, and soak up the culture and scenery as you chug steadily through dramatic rural and urban landscapes on Thailand rail holidays.

The romance of train travel on Thailand rail holidays

It’s not just the comfort and convenience of train travel that appeals. Excursions in each stopping point provide the perfect balance between relaxing on board and the opportunity to explore wonderful facets of Thailand off the train.Take the Bangkok to Chiang Mai train, in a comfortable sleeper compartment, and go from the bright lights of this buzzing Asian capital through the peaceful countryside to beautiful Chiang Mai, nestled in the lush jungles of northern Thailand.

There are lots of opportunities for shorter journeys on the Thailand train network too. Make sure you include a visit to the Kanchanaburi area on your Thailand rail holidays. This is the location of the infamous Death Railway built during WWII. The views from this train journey crossing the River Kwai are stunning but it’s the history that makes the trip so special. Visit the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre and the beautifully-kept cemetery to understand something of the immense loss of life and appalling conditions endured by hundreds of thousands of people as it was constructed.
