Beautiful Old School station
Jan 2020
Like anything in Thailand the Bangkok train station is to be experienced by all senses. Crowded, lots of food, lots of activity. The building is beautiful and the signage is excellent. Very easy to navigate. Took the overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai and had no difficulty. Great experience.

Easy to find your way around and helpful staff
Feb 2020
I've travelled up from KL to Bangkok and across to the Cambodian border on trains, sleepers to third class. They're cheap fairly reliable and convenient. This station was relatively easy to work out and well sign posted. The signs also matched up with the information on the ticket so all went well. Better than buses with maniac drivers loaded up with energy drinks.

Why Fly When you Can Travel From Hualamphong
Dec 2019
Spent a couple of hours here before boarding the 15:10 overnight train to Padang Besar. It's all here waiting for the needy traveller: coffee, pad thai, arcades, chanting monks (be sure not to sit in the 'monk only area', and other travellers looking lost wondering where to buy their tickets from. Sit upstairs grab a coffee and get you people watch on. A truly iconic train station. PS: it's not as bad as it looks; tickets are easy to buy, and the platforms are easy to find.

Busy central station.
May 2019
Bangkok railway station, unofficially known as Hua Lamphong station, is the main railway station in Bangkok, Thailand. It is in the center of the city in the Pathum Wan District, and is operated by the State Railway of Thailand. We reached here from Chiang Mai. Was very busy when we got in as this is the main station in Thailand. Was immediately able to take a cab and reach our destination. It had restaurants, ATM, tourist help desks etc.

Train railway museum at Hualamphong station
Feb 2020
Not many travellers (nor even railway enthusiasts) know that there is a little railway museum at Hualamphong station. It's at the front of the station on the left of the main entrance. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10.00 - 18.00 and entrance free. Donations are welcomed, for which the man at the desk wrote out a detailed receipt for me! There are also some souvenirs which, though interesting, I felt were overpriced.

The museum is a bit of a delightful jumble of things without any explanation but is worth a quick visit if you are waiting for a train. I don't know what will happen next year when Hualamphong station is due to close and apparently it is planned to turn the whole building into a museum.

Hualamphong station will be replaced by the massive new station now nearing completion at Bang Sue. That will mean the end of local services up the track and over the level crossings towards northern Bangkok. I took a local train (to Makkasan on the eastern line, fare 2 Baht) to get a last experience of this journey. The trains run efficiently enough, timekeeping a bit erratic and they're hot in non air-conditioned carriages. Just don't expect (as some other reviewers evidently did) a very comfortable ride. You're in fairly old trains running over equally old metre-gauge track.

Great atmosphere
Jan 2020
If you love trains like I do ( I have worked in the railway for many years when I was younger)- this is a great place. Great atmosphere, great restaurants/cafes. I came in the evening. If I had been there a little earlier, I could have seen the reaction of Thai people when they play the national anthem. This is a great place to see that because there are so many people and you can be sure they they play the anthem here.I will be back with my camera another time

LUGGAGE STORAGE @ Hua Lumphong
Jan 2020 • Solo
DO NOT use the luggage storage services at the station. They broke the lock off my suitcase, took my things and completely avoided any accountability and tried to pretend not to understand what I was saying. YES they don’t speak a lot of English but when you show them a lock and point to the broken zip... it’s pretty obvious. FIND other options!

Atmospheric
Dec 2019 • Solo
I find visiting a cities main railway station most atmospheric. Not only the comings and goings of people, the trains but also the structural design. To sit and just watch is quite something.
