The route starts in Bangkok and passes through the Pasak Jolasid dam in Lopburi province – 6 hours away on an elevated track just above the water level, which officials say has been unusually high this year.

Tickets have been selling out fast for rides on a special ‘floating train’, where passengers have been enjoying the illusion of aquatic rail travel due to a post-monsoon rise in water levels.

The route starts in Bangkok and passes through the Pasak Jolasid dam in Lopburi province – 6 hours away on an elevated track just above the water level, which officials say has been unusually high this year.



The train runs only at weekends between November and February and tickets have been sold out until New Year.

Bunyanuch Pahuyut, who was among 600 passengers who traveled on the route on Sunday (6 Nov), said, “I’ve never seen anything like this before”. (NNT)
