    Good morning, Sawasdee Krup from Jomtien!

    Be kind to advise the time of departure from Hua Lamphong station! May I take my own bicycle on board, how much the extra for it? Can I purchase my ticket from the Pattaya railway station?
    Call me : 0899868250.
    Gratefully yours,

      I dint see a schedule yet, but it usually leaves at 8am. I’m not sure if there’s a guard van to store your bike or not. But if it’s a folding bike then no problem. When you buy your ticket in Pattaya, tell them about the bike. You have to pay extra.

      It’s all day. The train returns in the evening.

    Its certainly worth checking but I have in mind tickets for this special excursion can only be bought at Hua Lamphong. As you enter the station from the front of the building, the office is in the far right corner. Its a separate office, not the little ticket window.
    Unless you speak Thai or have a Thai speaker with you, you may have difficulty making them understand what you want. They will tell you you do not need an advance ticket, but can just come on the day, but they are referring to the regular train to Ayutthaya. I had to mime being a steam loco to make them understand then the light suddenly came on & big smiles but bad news – they had sold the last ticket that morning. (mid February)

    That’s not my experience. Staff do speak English well. You don’t need an advance ticket but there’s no advantage in delaying and it may be full. The train usually departs Ayutthaya after 5pm.
