The Chimney Boy TRIP Oct 2016

Thai Railways has just released its beautiful and glossy rail book which contains the routes and timetable. It was released on 23rd September 2016, so new that I could be the first 100 visitors. Having seen how informative and attractive the book was, my expectation was high.

With my 22baht ticket I was herded to the last 2 commuter coaches with alongside benches. I did not expect that I would be reincarnated to my Kuala Kangsar – Kluang Federated Malay States train days.

This was pedestrians so non elitist Thais.Peasantry travel at its best, the best way to mingle and be in touch with the people. 99% Of the passengers were Malays.

It took a good 2hrs 45 minutes. It was bearable. By the time I reached Sg Golok I was like a chimney boy.

I took the motorbike for 80baht to the taxi stand. The taxi to Pengkalan Chepa was Rm70.

The firefly ticket cost me a bomb.
