We have decided to take the train one way between Kanchanburi and Namtok and bus/car the other way.
1.Are the morning trains to Namtok more likely to be running on time than the afternoon return journey?
2.Is one direction likely to much more crowded than the other?
We are still deciding whether to ride the train between Kanchanburi and Bangkok.
I read on another post:
"A couple of observations on the tourist train, in 3rd class at least. The opposing seats are uncomfortably close, I suspect even for an average sized Thai. At 1,8m I found it really uncomfortable. The windows are relatively small with one half of the window having thick steel bars across it, so not ideal at all for a scenic tourist train"
3.Would this be the case on the normal train too? We have long legs..
4.How is 2nd class different on the tourist train?
5.Do 2nd class seats sell out on the Namtok/Kanchanburi sector for the normal train?
6. Is there any way of pre purchasing a ticket on the tourist train for Nakhon Pathom to Namtok.. We will only be arriving in Thailand 2 days before and I'm guessing tickets will be sold out by then.(traveling around 20th January).
