We took Sky Train to talat Phlu station, walked about 10 minutes to get to the market! Interesting experience, having meal next to railway and watching the trains passing by. Options of street food, thai dessert, really love this area, would recommend a visit.

Regular train station

Took the overnight train from bangkok to Chiang Mai, bought a 2 class ANSHC and it was great. Spacious and it seemed new! It had a small restaurant inside and good A/C. The train was on time and the beds were confortable. I would definitely recommend and take this train again.

Complete chaos that works

I did not know whether to laugh or cry, you are walking a
long a railway track hidden by solid rows on both sides
by market stalls ,selling the most amazing array of foods.
The choice quite stunning, then all of sudden there is a
train whistle and the stalls slide their wares away from the track in a polished manner and recover the awnings.The
train chugs through the crowds ,some of whom seem desperate with their selfie sticks to get run over. Once the
Train passes stalls slide out canopies folded and trading continues.
Quite a show,Health and safety in the UK would have a heart attack.

If you think it will be romantic to take an overnight train from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, get the picture of the Orient Express out of your head. The train is definitely 3rd world. They hand you sheets for the 4-to a quarter bunks that open onto a hallway. Curtains are broken. Toilets are unclean. The dining car had broken seats but we opted for that and to see the view of the countryside. We decided to keep a sense of humor as we are about 60 and spoke to the many backpackers on board. Just a heads up if this is not your cup of tea.

Do NOT take the train
Feb 2016 • Business
The train will never get you anywhere on time. They are almost always delayed a minimum of 4 hours. Every time I take the train, I always either miss the bus I'm supposed to catch afterwards, or miss the connecting train that I am supposed to catch after. The times are NEVER correct. NEVER BUY JOINT TICKETS. This is the fourth time I've been stranded for over 24 hours in a strange city, missing my pre booked hotel, bus, or private taxi, or ferry. You would think I would have learned from the past three experiences, but this is the last time. If you ever have a connecting train, you WILL MISS YOUR CONNECTION FROM DELAYS. Save your money and buy a plane ticket. The trains are old, and derail constantly, very dirty, and are never on time. I sincerely highly recommend taking a plane, unless you have a minimum of 24 hours to waste. And when their trains are late, you get no refund on top of it.
