High speed rail: Pattaya to Bangkok in well under an hour - around 300 baht!

Basic times and prices have been announced for the confirmed high speed train linking U-Tapao airport with Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang in Bangkok.

 

The journey time between U-Tapao and the capital will be a mouth watering 45 minutes.

 

The cost of the journey will be just 330 baht. Speeds will reach 250 km per hour.

 

The train will stop five times from Bangkok at Chacherngsao, Chonburi, Sri Racha, Pattaya and U-Tapao.

 

A government ministerial meeting rubber-stamped the project yesterday that is part of ambitious plans to develop the much vaunted Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).

I hope the trains don't cross any roads. Most people around here can't see a train coming at 50kph, let alone 250.

Good idea if the project doesn't go off the rails.

So they've not begun to build the track yet but already have a timetable and fare structure in place.  Who said Thailand was not progressive?

Not that familiar with the place names or the map - does this stop at either airport? Or would you have to get off this somewhere and take another train to get to the airport? (I get that they haven't exactly fixed the route let alone built it, but given the stops that the article listed)

Please learn to count. :whistling:

No way you can do 220 km in 45 minutes running at 250 km/h,

and even far worse if you have to stop at 7 stations on the way !

Yes and the article says only 5 stops from Bangkok with the map showing 6, it finishes at Rayong not U Tapao. Also, as per the other article Thailand approves $7.2 billion high-speed rail project to link airports wasn't the link from Rayong supposed to go to Hua Hin and already provisional construction started?.
