HUA LAMPHONG TRAIN STATION | THE OLD RAIL WAYS OF SIAM

I know, I know! I heard it many times and I couldn't agree more when people say "Bangkok? Oh mainstream". Well yes it is one of the most visited part of this country not just because it's the capital city and there's so many things to explore in this part of Thailand but also because this is the place where people spend most of there money shopping. Yes shopping. There are shopping malls and street markets everywhere, and they say it's cheaper there.

It's a long weekend here in Thailand. Some of my filipino friends who are working here as well in Nan Thailand decided to go to Bangkok to explore. But one of the best place we visited is the Hua Lamphong rail way station

HUA LAMPHONG RAIL WAY STATION

Hua Lamphong Rail Way Station or the Bangkok Train Station is the main station that connects some parts of the country. It was designed by an Italian architect Mario Tamagno. 

Location: Rama IV Rd | Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330, Thailand

HUA LAMPHONG STATION

Get off to HUA LAMPHONG STATION. Follow the path to the exit, then outside is a bus station and to your left is the old rail ways.

Note: Be careful, there's a lot of people in the platform and waiting area so take care of your own belongings, although there's a lot of security guards in the area, it's better safe than sorry. A guy actually approaches begging for money inside the waiting area and left when the security guards arrived.
