Train Trip adventure ideas in Thailand
Taking a train journey in Thailand is both an enjoyable and an affordable experience.
Most journeys begin at Bangkok’s Iconic Hua Lampong central station. This historic landmark was designed by an Italian architect in the Neo-Renaissance style and opened in 1916.
From this hub you can journey throughout Thailand.
You can take a 3rd class train to Kanchanaburi and the famous bridge over the river Kwai for only Baht 40- or $1.20 one way.
A journey to Udon Thani in Isaan, Thailand’s North East, might take you across the famous Pasak Cholasit Dam - the largest reservoir in Thailand's central region, and a royal initiative by His Majesty King Bhumibol. This is a key rice growing region of Thailand.
The State Railway of Thailand offers several special excursions each year for visitors who want to capture the beauty and expanse of the dam. You can climb off and explore further if you want or just enjoy the round trip. There are plenty of food vendors on hand to ensure you have enough sustenance for the journey.
The 3rd class carriage journey is Baht 211- or about $6.50 each way.
The journey from Bangkok to the seaside resort of Hua His is one of the most popular in Thailand.
For Baht 44 or $1.33 each way you can journey to one of the oldest and loveliest railway stations built during the reign of King Rama Six. Make sure you grab a snack from a track side vendor.
From here you can explore the lovely seaside town…..before venturing back to the train and another journey.
Bangkok's Beach and River Party Boat
Bangkok is home to many cool places to party but this would have to be one of the most unique perched on the banks of the river in the city heart.
To get here, it’s a good idea to take the BTS skytrain to the Saphan Thaksin station. Then take a leisurely walk along Chareon Krung Road towards Soi 57. You can explore the shophouses and temples along the way. This is one of the oldest parts of the city and is rich history.
Opposite Soi 57 you’ll see the entrance to the old Bangkok Dock.
Walk through the entrance and down to the river.
The quirky Bangkok Island awaits!
You can relax with a cocktail on shore or head aboard for sunset on the river. The space is huge and available for private parties or corporate events. Bangkok island boat will hold 320 people and is also capable of cruising up the Chao Phrayah river for music events and even weddings. There are also special cruises with DJ’s, live music, food & drinks.
On a regular day, entry is free.
So why not experience some city life, island style
Thailand's famous Maya Bay “The Beach” Re-opens
Thailand’s iconic Maya Bay (made famous by the Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Beach) has finally reopened to visitors after four years of closure. But there are new visitor rules.
In the past, this little piece of paradise, located in Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, was attracting around 6000 people every day. Yet at only 15 meters-wide and 250 meters-long, the small bay quickly became a victim of its own popularity.
Initially, the closure was meant to last four months but after 4 years of rejuvenation vaccinated tourists are now welcome back.
As of now, visitors are capped at 300 people in one of seven or eight shifts per day between 10am and 4pm—in effect limiting the daily total to 3000 people
Bangkok's famous Chatuchak Market is back!
Visitors and residents to Bangkok have been making their way back to the city’s famous Chatuchak market now that Covid restrictions have eased.
While some vendors have not returned, the market is once again humming with life.
From a huge variety of clothing stalls, to handicrafts, household goods, pets and food Chatuchak remains a must-see on any visit to Thailand.
There are also many cool venues here where you can grab a drink or a snack, sit back and watch the people traffic.
Chatuchak is still arguably the largest market in Asia and without a doubt still one of the best.
Khao San Road and its new Facelift
Many of us have fond memories of Khao San Road.
It has long been a mecca for backpackers and budget travelers looking for the streets famous Pad Thai, cheap souvenirs and a youthful place to party.
A journey to the new Khao San road reveals a very different destination today.
A 48 million baht or 1.5 million dollar facelift during Covid has resulted in a new streamlined and paved walkway with upgraded footpaths and a new drainage system. A maximum of 480 street vendors are split into two separate shifts. No more fake goods can be sold and there are spot checks for cleanliness. And these days no entry is allowed without a rapid Covid test on site or proof of double vaccination.
Like all other places serving food & drinks in Thailand these days there is a cutoff time for alcohol consumption – depending on the current rules.
We’ll let you decide if you like the new face of Khao San road.
Klong Ong Ang - Bangkok's newest Walking Street
Klong Ong Ang Walking Street in Bangkok’s bustling Chinatown district recently reopened much to the delight of locals and visitors.
Bangkok’s newest Walking Street makes exploring the Old City and Chinatown neighborhood easier than ever.
The Walking Street stretches 1.5 km along both sides of a beautified section of the canal Klong Ong Ang between Damrong Sathit Bridge and Saphan Han Bridge.
Klong Ong Ang has a long history.
It was constructed in the 1780s by King Rama I soon after the establishment of Bangkok as the new capital and in its early days was a bustling lifeline of trade and travel.
The name Ong Ang actually means pottery.
The renovation project was awarded the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards from the UN-Habitat Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
The restoration and beautification project saw this area transformed from a crowded enclave of hawker stalls and a polluted waterway into a charming urban recreational area.
Thailand is Open - Entry Requirements
Thailand has relaxed its quarantine restrictions and is reopening to vaccinated travellers arriving from several dozen countries and territories. It's expected the move - which includes Australia, the United States, the UK, India, China and Canada - to name a few, will provide a much-needed boost for the country's embattled tourism industry.
Now, as of November 1, fully vaccinated travellers who have stayed a minimum of 21 days in one of 63 approved low risk countries and territories can avoid a lengthy hotel quarantine for the first time in more than 18 months.
Instead, incoming travellers who meet the updated requirements will only need to stay one night in a government-approved hotel while they await the results of a COVID-19 test that will be administered upon arrival. Visitors under the age of 12 who are traveling with their parents are exempt from the vaccination requirement.
Fully vaccinated travellers arriving from countries not on the list are eligible to enter through a sandbox scheme that requires them to stay in a government-approved hotel or resort in one of 17 destinations, including Phuket, Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Koh Samui, for seven nights before
they will be allowed to travel freely in the country.

Koh Larn - Pattaya's own island paradise
There are several idyllic islands that are just a short distance from Bangkok and are ideal for a weekend escape. In this episode we take a short speedboat ride to Koh Larn's Nabaan Pier, just off Pattaya's beach, less than 2 hours from Thailand's capital metropolis.
This little island in the Gulf of Thailand packs a lot of punch. Koh Larn is best known for is its stunning six main beaches and a few smaller escapes of white sand and crystal clear waters.
The Island is only 4km long and 2km wide and is about 180 meters high at the highest point. The terrain is mostly mountainous and its best to explore here on a scooter, though you can walk or take a local taxi.
The local village here is well worth exploring. Wander through the narrow streets and the
colourful houses. You’ll find a vivid array of vendors, local restaurants and coffee shops.
This place used to be filled to the brim with day trippers but these days its quiet and pristine
and if you do happen to be in Thailand it’s a wonderful place to escape Covid Blues and just
reconnect with paradise.
