The train is definitely the way to travel cheap in Thailand. The third class tickets are very cheap. The average speed is quite low, about 40 km/h or less and punctuality is not always what you want but it's still a pleasant way to travel if you have time. There are several levels of comfort, several types of more or less rapid train (regular, fast, express or super express). The network consists in four lines, the Northern line, the Southern Line, the Eastern Line and the North Eastern Line.
Find and book your bus, train, flights or boat tickets to travel around Thailand

Just type your depature city, destination city and the date of your trip.
By traveling by train, you can discover the Thai countryside which runs behind the windows. If you want to enjoy the scenery, prefer the third class less comfortable, but not air-conditioned and windowless, a good thing when you consider that the windows in the upper classes are often dirty and you can not really see clearly through them. The other major benefit of rail traveling in Thailand, is the contact with the population. The vast majority of passengers are Thai and they often offer to share fruits or other food they have purchased. A generosity that we very rarely seein in Western countries but here is natural. You oftem do great encounters on the train even if the communication is not always easy. Long live to sign language ! For whoever really wants to know the country and people is an experience to do. Ballet of vendors with their platters of kebabs, chicken thighs, bottles, drinks, cashew nuts, rice cakes ... is a fun show to watch. No need for dining car, they bring you everything on a plate. Everything is at 10 to 20 baht. At least in third class. In first class, depending on the duration of your trip, you have one or more meals included in the ticket price and no vendors are allowed to get in the cars and there is a train attendant in each car.
Be careful before boarding on a train, make sure it is yours, it may be the exact time of your train departure and the train arriving not being the right one. Punctuality is quite relative. At all trainstations of the cities frequented by tourists, you have a Tourist Police or the TAT (Tourism Authority Thailand ) desk which will inform you with kindness. Otherwise, ask the other passengers by asking them if the train goes where you want to go. You can show them your ticket or try to talk to them in Thai. This train goes to Chiang Mai, for example, is said rod faï nee paï tee Chiang Mai maï khrap (Does this train go to Chiang Mai ?). Remplace khrap by kha if you are a woman and Chiang Mai with the name of the city you want go to. Note that it is not usually necessary to book your tickets in advance except for the night trains and Super Express trains. You can not go anywhere by train in Thailand, Phuket, for instance, major tourist destination has no railway station.
