When we talk about traveling, the first thing that crosses our mind is checking plane tickets online. After all, it is the most conventional way to travel. But, what if there is another fun way to travel without the need to put your liquids into 100ml bottles, and you get to sleep comfortably?
This Train Ride To Bangkok Comes With Convertible Beds
Bangkok is one of the best cities in the world to visit! Throughout the years, the capital of Thailand has been holding the title of the most-visited city in the world. Now, we have found out that you can travel to Bangkok from Padang Besar in style. Many Malaysians have traveled into Hatyai through Padang Besar, but not many knew about the train rides to Bangkok.
This train ride promises scenic views as you will be passing by paddy fields, small towns, and lush greeneries! The journey will take 17 hours, so it is a long duration to absorb all the pristine views that Thailand has to offer. However, do take note that the entire journey including immigration, will take much longer. Not to worry, the train comes with convertible beds!
