A charming train station in the heart of Bangkok that retains the kitsch that train travel once held across the world. My wife and I took the train from Hualamphong to the Thai-Cambodian border at Aranyaprathet on January 20, 2014. Our travels through Hualamphong couldn't have been more easy, with no wait to buy a ticket, a convenience shop located in the station to buy snacks for the journey, and an easy to find train on the platform.
Built in 1916 in the Italian Neo-Renaissance style, the building is a masterpiece to look at. But from the attached photos, I'm sure you'll agree that the best part of the station is the easy to find kitsch, from the saluting statue outside the station to the great Mr. Bun food shop. Even if you are not traveling on the train, take a visit to the station and sample the Hot-Dog in a Waffle, a Thai culinary delight sold nowhere else in the world.
