    Hi I am flying into Suvarnabhumi Airport next week at 18:10 and was looking at catching a train at 20:50 from don muang train station to Nong Khai..
    2 Questions:

    1. would it posible to do this in the time mentioned?

    2. How would I organize a ticket I am arriving next Tuesday? Could I just book the sleeper ticket when i get to the train Station.

    Cheers for any info...

    Spend a couple days in Bangkok. No worry about making a connection and you can purchase your overnight sleeper a couple days ahead of time.

    If you have a hotel on the Skytrain route you can use it to connect with the subway at Asok and use it to take you to the national train station.

    I have booked sleeper trains to Chiang Mai with a day's notice. Never been to Nong Khai, want to see the Naga Fireballs sometime though!



    Good luck.

    I was looking for this link and finally found it. There is a bus that leaves the little bus station at Suvarnabhumi direct to Nong Khai also.

    Bus 825.

    Someone else may have the times. Could be an all night ride.

    I just got into Bangkok and took a train to Chiang Mai . I was told I may have to wait a few days but I got one straight away. Chiang Mai is one of the more popular destinations so you should have no problem with Nong Khai. You can get a ticket at Hualamphong Station, shuttle bus AF4 from the lower level at Suvarnabhumi. I was able to book the sleeper at the station but I did have to wait about 5 hours. For that reason and the fact the sleepers can be a tad uncomfortable(they're dorm-type, not individual) you may want to try to book for a morning train, stay a day in Bangkok and travel through the day.
    Take a cardigan, the air-con can make the trains quite cold sometimes.

    The bus nr.825 leaves the transport center(free shuttlebus from airport) at 9 pm.It's a 1-class-ac-bus,no V.I.P-bus.Arrives in Nong Khai at 6 am.
    Price feb.08:480 Baht.
