The Hua Lamphong Railway Station in Bangkok
The Hua Lamphong, is the main railway station in Bangkok. Hua Lamphong Central Station is located in the Pathum Wan district. The trains will take you in all directions in Thailand whether to Chiang Mai Railway Station, Hat Yai Railway Station, Trang Railway Station or Surathani Railway Station.
From the train station you can also take the bus to the surrounding bus stations, such as Mo Chit, Sai Tai Mai and Ekkamai. With the city buses, you are only very slow, but the most favorable way. These will always stop at the city bus stops when people wait and wave.
Near the central station, in about 3km east, lies the Lumphini Park.
Hotel recommendation at city parks in Bangkok
For a longer holiday in Bangkok, there are several ways to stay overnight. For a long-term vacation in Thailand, I recommend you to rent a house or apartment. If you only travel to Bangkok for a few weeks and days, you can take a closer look at the following hotels.
- Hotel at Chatuchak night market. A very cheap and good hotel near Chatuchak night market, the Mo Chit bus station and easy access to the BTS Skytrain is the G9Bangkok.
- Cheap hotel at Lumphini Park in Bangkok. Highly recommended is the Bed & Breakfest S Bloc Saladaeng.
- Looking for a hotel in the Nana Plaza red light district. A very nice hotel in Soi 2 is the iCheck inn.
- A hotel directly at the main station, also very popular with backpackers in a shared room, is the Blue House.
