    Hi there. I will be arriving in BKK during daytime, and plan on taking the night train to chumpon. Meanwhile I would like to store my bags at the railway station, is there any accommodation for this? And what does it cost?

    Thanx in advance,



    G

    Yes, there is a place where you can leave your stuff, but I don't know what it costs.

    see this thread: http://www.travelfish.org/board/post/thailand/5502_are-there-lockers-for-backpacks-at-bankok-train-station-

    not seen lockers at the train stations that i've passed through in Thailand...it's just not like Japan. but there are left luggage counters, just like at major bus stations & Suvarnabhumi airport. usually have a sign saying 'รับฝากของ' (rap phak khong - think the Thai font can't show up) & easily identified by bags with number tags lined up around/in front of it.

    fee depends on size of bag & is on a per bag basis. don't know the rates for Hualomphong but as a guide, at Mor Chit bus station it was in the range of 30-40 baht for a bag the size of a 45L backpack, more for larger items. do take note of the closing time - many do not operate around the clock.

    Info from seat61.com

    Left luggage
    : If you need to leave your bags somewhere, there's a staffed privatised left luggage office at the rear left-hand corner of the concourse.. It's open 04:00 to 23:00 daily, prices 30, 50, 70 or 80-100 baht for a small/medium/large/extra large item per 24 hours, although what constitutes a small or large item isn't specified!

    Also note: No Valuables! People have had things go missing, even cash buried deep in their bag. Make sure your bag contains no valuables and is secure.
