Train stations in Thailand, next station Den Chai

Den Chai Train Station in North Thailand

In 2018 I was in Den Chai and made some photos of this lovely old train station. I love traveling by train, especially in Thailand where it is like traveling in time. It is like an open-air museum. Not only the trains itself but also the train stations. They look like they have not changed since they build the first railroad lines in Thailand in 1889. I will try to make a serie of train stations under the tag TRAIN STATIONS, before modernisation will make this all history. This is the train station of Den Chai, a class 1 train station about 530km north in Bangkok in Phrae province along the line Bangkok to Chiang Mai. Previous major train station is Uttaradit, next major train station is Lampang. Den Chai train station is not a beautiful old style station and was once planned to become the junction for the line to Chiang Rai. But until now 2018 that has never materialised. But that plan is again in the pipe-line (see last photo). If you like old Thai train stations then hurry up and visit them all as modernisation is destroying beautiful history! Scroll down to see more photos.

Update 2021 : The line from Den Chai to Chiang Rai seems to be approved although the chosen route looks a bit weird. Why not make the line from Lampang to Chiang Rai along route 1?

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
