Only 4 times a year in Thailand, you can make a trip on a rare train, which will lead the locomotive. The train will transport tourists from Bangkok to the ancient capital of the Kingdom - the city of Ayutthaya.
Anyone wanting 26 March 2019 of the year will be able to make a small day trip on the old train. The vintage train will go to 8: 10 in the morning from Hua Lumpong station in Bangkok (central railway station). The retro train takes passengers to Ayutthaya city 70 kilometers north of the Thai capital. You can also join the trip at the Samsen and Bangsy metro stations.
The number of tickets for the retro train is limited. They are sold at the Hua Lumpong railway station. In addition, you can book a trip through a special hotline. The cost of round-trip tickets is 250 baht. This price includes breakfast. For 999 baht is offered a trip with a guide.
Rare train in Thailand goes to the route four times a year. Each flight is dedicated to a specific event. For example, March 26 marks the anniversary of the opening of the first public railway (Thai Railway Day), August 12 is the Queen's Birthday, October 23 is the anniversary of King Rama V’s death and December 5 is King Rama IX’s birthday.
The end point of the route of the retro-train - Ayutthaya, is of great interest for tourists. This city is the ancient capital of the Kingdom. Its historical part is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The main attractions of the city are numerous ancient temples. Among them, Wat Mahathat, erected in 1374, and Wat Rachabura with a relic camera, in which ritual tablets, Buddha image and samples of ancient painting are kept. Ayutthaya is available from Pattaya with a guided tour - details can be found after passing at this linkand see photos of Ayutthaya city - here.
