Bangkok Nong Khai Train Timetable 2024 Ticket Price

Most people use the Bangkok Nong Khai Train to travel from the capital of Thailand to the capital city of Laos, Vientiane.

Nong Khai itself is quite a pleasant place to hang around for a while, with plenty of places to stay, many overlooking the mighty Mekong river.

Nong Khai Railway station is located close to the Friendship Bridge over the Mekong where the border with Thailand and Laos lies.

If you are planning on staying in Nong Khai for a while, the station is a few kilometres away from the main area of town and will require a Tuk-tuk ride or very long walk to get there.
