New dual track train line to slash travel time between Bangkok, Hua Hin and southern Thailand

Recommended Posts

they should directly move to laying high speed tracks, or at least semi-high speed like 250 kph.

Is the track going to be elevated? Not sure I’d want to travel at 160kph above ground.

Not sure I would trust being whisked at 160 mile an hour ANYWHERE in Thailand.

 

Whatever next a Nuclear Power Plant ???

160 kmph, most cars can manage that on a good motorway 🙂

The prices will soar ! And i would not trust anyone driving a high speed train here. I will wait a few years and count how many train wreaks first.

Agreed . These people are not ready for this .

And how many Thais will be able to afford this? Second many foreigners will just fly cheaper and faster. This will be the biggest boondoggle in Thailand's history.

Next airport after Hua Hin (Air Asia is the only current user) is Surat Thani IIRC, then Krabi and further south- handy for people in between.

 

Strangely this isn't just about external tourism. Places like PKK and other towns down the isthmus will benefit.
