Where is located the Central Train Station of Bangkok ?

The Main Train Station of Bangkok is called Bang Sue- Krung Thep Abhiwat. It is a new station. It was inaugurated in 2021. It is located in the north of the city, near Chatuchak week-end market. There is also an old Train station called Hua Lamphong. It is located inside the city, near China Town quarter. In 2023, all long distance trains have moved to the new station (trains to Chiang Mai etc).

The train to the airport Don Muang is departing from the new station.

See the location of both train stations on the following Metro Map (click to expand) :

You can arrive to both stations with the Metro (MRT), the blue line.

See how to arrive to Don Muang airport. Note that it is not the main airport of Bangkok.

Hua Lamphong – The old Train Station

The train station exists for more than a century. It is nice to admire the architecture of the place.

There are old pictures on the walls with explanations about the history of  the station, so you can arrive there as if it was a museum without the need to take a train.

The long distance trains have moved from this station to the new station. From Hua Lamphong it is possible to travel to short distance destinations, like Ayutthaya.

Don’t worry about the train you see in the following picture, it is just part of an expo. The trains in Thailand are more modern than that.
