Many people have been to Thailand. When it comes to the means of transportation for sightseeing in Thailand, most tourists take airplanes, tour buses, minibuses, cruise ships and the famous Bangkok Dudu bus. But have you ever traveled to Thailand by train? According to King Bangkok (big V: mok853), recently, Thailand Railway Bureau launched a train sightseeing project, and tourists can even pack a train to travel.
Thailand’s tourism sector has been vigorously promoting domestic tourism, especially the tourism projects of some second tier cities to attract more domestic and foreign tourists to visit Thailand in depth, so as to promote the local economic development. The Thai Railway Bureau also followed closely, with the help of the extensive domestic railway network, launched a number of new railway travel projects. Recently, the Railway Bureau invited representatives of tourism agencies and media at home and abroad to have a train tour experience and enjoy the wonderful journey of a train tour of Thailand.
At the exchange meeting held by the head of Thailand Railway Bureau during the journey, the development process and current situation of Thailand railway industry were introduced. At present, the largest transport hub in Southeast Asia is being built in Bangxiang District of Bangkok to prepare for the coming high-speed railway era. But the traditional train will still provide services for passengers, and will add new highlights, such as the train package tourism service of this experience. The person in charge also said that China is Thailand’s largest tourist source country, and he hoped that more Chinese tourists would also try new tourism projects. Starting from nanhuapeng railway station in Bangkok, he could go to many interesting tourist attractions, experience local customs and folk culture, and travel to Thailand in depth. Like the one-day trip between Bangkok, huafuli and Bangkok, the price per capita is about 2000 baht, about 500 yuan. If there are more tourists, it is more cost-effective to pack a train. The railway bureau also provides customized services according to customers’ needs, and even holds weddings on trains.
The train for this experience is a traditional train. The interior of the carriage has been transformed. In addition to soft seats and sleeper, meeting rooms, restaurants, double bedrooms and bicycle storage carriages are specially set up. For the Chinese who have been used to taking the high-speed railway with a speed of more than 300 kilometers per hour, the feeling of taking the train slowly and leisurely has been long gone; for the people who want to enjoy the blue sky and white clouds, endless grassland and beautiful rural scenery along the way, they can have a completely relaxed feeling. When the train stopped in the middle of the way, everyone happily took the underground car and changed to a walking tractor to enter a village. They experienced folk tourism projects such as folk performance, farmhouse meal, traditional handicrafts, and got a deeper understanding of the local culture.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that the considerate service enjoyed on the train makes all people feel very warm. For example, there are a variety of catering services, the service staff always smile and are full of enthusiasm. There are also two specially invited singers who perform live, and they will sing many Chinese songs. Eating delicious food, enjoying the beautiful scenery outside the window, listening to beautiful songs lingering in my ears, warm and happy feeling comes from the bottom of my heart. Although the train is a little old and the scenic spots are not very amazing, the simple local customs and meticulous and thoughtful service add a happy feeling to the train tour.
