Arau Bangkok Siem Reap Phnom Penh - In the train

Here are the pictures of what we have done in the train from Arau, Perlis to Bangkok, Thailand. A very, very, time consuming journey.

A pillow at the end of the upper bed and attached with a dim light and a knitting pocket- it is cool, isn't it? Good for the novel addicts

All of us are preparing for the long night wait in the train - wash feet before going to sleep.- every compartment is covered by a mini curtain, it is convenient to cover our sleeping style from other passengers.
This is the picture of the next morning- see how they keep back the bed and the bed is turned back to seats.- Another 5 more hour to Bangkok






The typical view upon reaching Bangkok- vast paddy field.


At the train canteen

A funny instruction- but they have tried at least

A few train stations in the journey- to drop and to pick up the passengers.

The town by the railway- I am not sure the name of the town.
Waaah.. at last, we reached Bangkok at the next day noon.



The Bangkok Train Station welcomes you- the tourist polices are very helpful and they can speak English too.
How Bangkok train station looks like and how we travel to the Thailand and Cambodia International border- keep up with the post- and thank you for supporting our blog/ website- come and stay with us...

Arau Bangkok Siem Reap Phnom Penh

 On 23rd October 2012- a team of youths under Malaysia Youth Council- Perlis division and supported by the Malaysia's Ministry of Youth and Sports which consists about 44 of us (the volunteers from variuos NGOs) including the Director of Youth and Sports Department, Tuan Haji Ariff were in the mission to visit Kampong Spue, about 200 km from the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. 

Here is the the beginning of the picture records of the long, exhausted and time consuming journey by land- first time ever being done by any charity volunteers from Malaysia- tracking back how (Khmer Rouge and Vietnam Invading) Cambodian  war refugees found Malaysia via land journey in the 70's.

Photo session prior-departure at Arau, Perlis Train Station
The train stop at Padang Besar for Passport Checking & Stamping by both Countries' Immigrations and Customs

Tickets checking by the Thai's Train Company
The bed preparation was done by a professional steward - a very skillful & fast job

The ticket from Arau, Malaysia to Bangkok, Thailand, inspect the fare (the lower bed cost higher- often sold out) and the time of departure & arrival

This is how it looks like when you are on the upper bed
 We arrived at Bangkok Train Station the next day of 24th October 2012- what a long journey- but a lot of experience you can gain in such a plenty time - of almost 18 hours.



The story will be continued in several posts- wait for the updates....
