Festivities & Fun on an Overnight Train to Bangkok
After a month cycling through Laos my brother and I took this train ride across Thailand to catch our flights home out of Bangkok. It wound up being one of the most memorable trips I’ve taken. The well-worn train cars were all packed with festive travelers, locals, and plenty of food vendors who boarded and walked through the aisles at every stop. After most passengers retired to their sleeper cars, we shared libations and many laughs with the train officers, who were eager to hear of our travels and share their jars of Lao Lao. When I look back on that trip I feel like I took part in a Wes Anderson film.
