    Hey does anyone know if it is possible to travel to other countries such as Cambodia and Vietnam by train from Thailand? Is it Safe?

    Hi Sunny5049,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    No there are no train connections between Thailand and Cambodia, nor between Cambodia and Vietnam.

    You can take the train from Bangkok all the way south into Malaysia, but it looks like you didn't want to head that direction. Like Somtam says, there are no train connections to Cambodia or Vietnam, but if you are heading to Cambodia you can at least take the train as far as Aranyaprathet on the Thai-Cambodian border and then go by road to Siem Reap and Angkor. If you are heading to Laos, you can take the train as far as Nong Khai in northeastern Thailand, then by road over the Friendship bridge into Vientiane. If you take this route, get an overnight sleeper berth for a great experience. Cheers.
