train from udon thani to bangkok
From Wikitravel.org‘s section on Udon Thani:
Daily trains go to Nong Khai and over the Friendship Bridge across the Mekong River to Laos. There are also frequent trains to Nakhon Ratchasima and Bangkok. The overnight express sleeper to Bangkok is scheduled for 9.25 hours but usually takes longer. Nevertheless, it is still quite comfortable and pleasant, especially when taken in a sleeping berth or compartment. A daytime express railcar to Bangkok traverses a causeway over the large and scenic artificial lake created by the Pa Sak Jolasid Dam (in Lopburi Province). Connections to the major centres of Southern Isaan (Buriram, Surin, Si Saket and Ubon Ratchathani) can be made in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) for those who like to travel by rail.
In all, there are daily daytime trains, and three daily nighttime trains from Bangkok to Udon Thani and vice versa (most of which normally originate or terminate at Nong Khai), and several local trains to other destinations, including Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat).
Refer to the above directly for the most current information, and for links to other articles.
From LonelyPlanet.com‘s feature on Udon Thani (Getting there & away):
Udon Thani is on the Bangkok–Nong Khai line. Express trains leave Hualamphong station in Bangkok at 8.20am, 6.30pm and 8.45pm arriving at Udon’s train station (0 4222 2061) about 10 hours later. Express departures in the reverse direction leave at 6.47am, 6.40pm and 7.20pm. The fares to Bangkok are 245/369/1177B for a 3rd-class seat/2nd-class seat/1st-class sleeper.
I have no idea if the above is updated as necessary.
A few websites have bothered to provide some actual schedules of sorts for the Udon Thani to Bangkok trip, but there is no knowing for certain if those schedules are updated, either. See, for example:
- WelcomeToUdonThani.net: http://www.welcometoudonthani.net/train-to-udon.html
- SiamHotel.net: Udon Thani Trains (Railway) Schedule
- UdonMap.com: Scroll down to the Train Time Table.
- Sawadee.com: Timetable North-Eastern Lines
Pay a visit to ThaiFocus.com‘s page on Thailand Trains and Thai Railways — it has lots of information about what can be expected with train travel in Thailand, but it also leads off with a very helpful train timetable search engine (you will be transferred to here).
Or just go to the website of the State Railway of Thailand. Select the English option (currently located in the upper right). At present, they have three sections: Timetable; Fares; and Download Timetable. Unfortunately for those of us who do not understand Thai, only the first section (Timetable) provides an English document — you want the Northeastern Line, incidentally.
Here are a few Udon Thani-related articles that might be of interest, even if they are not necessarily relevant to the topic of travel from there to Bangkok:
