Bangkok Nong Khai Train Timetables and Fares

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.

All the above train services depart and arrive at Bangkok's main railway station, Hua Lamphong.

For more information about Hua Lamphong Station and how to get there and away click here >

Alternatively, there are a couple of other stations in Bangkok where you may wish to board / alight the train.

Samsen station is the last station before Hua Lamphong and is a good option for many people staying in this area of the city.

Bang Sue Junction Station is a little further out from the centre of the city but is a good option if you want to catch a connecting train to the south or north-east, as most trains leaving Hua Lamphong stop here.

It is also fairly close to Mo Chit Northern Bus Station if you want to make a bus connection.


The railway line has now been extended from Nong Khai, travelling over the Friendship Bridge, to Thanaleng station, just a short distance inside Laos.

From here you can catch the waiting minibuses that take you on to Vientiane city centre.
