The Orient Express ! (Bangkok to Surat Thani - Koh Samui sleeper train)

We took the 14 hour sleeper train from Bangkok Hamphanluh train station down to Surat Thani in southern Thailand to catch a bus then a ferry over to Koh Samui. The first few photos are of the local people in Bangkok going about their daily business on, between and next to the train tracks of the busiest station in Thailand. We opted to save some money by going second class without air-conditioning. Maybe a mistake in Heinseit, it must have been 30C on the train the whole way down.
