All aboard the night train

Just another thing I love about Thailand are the trains. Normally the idea of night travel makes me shudder but here it's all class, second class to be exact.

If you book a second class ticket you arrive and sit in a seat, look out the window, admire the view. Then after some dinner and a beer, a little man appears and turns the seats into a comfy bed, complete with pillow, blanket, a curtained partion and even a reading light.

Result? Rather than peeling ourselves off sweaty vinyl seats, sleepless and cranky we arrived in Bangkok this morning feeling completely refreshed.
