Here’s how to pick up your Thailand train ticket in Bangkok! 

 

Getting to Hua Lamphong MRT subway station

If this will be your first time taking the MRT subway, have no fear!

It is pretty simple. 

You first need to get to the nearest MRT station. This might require taking the BTS skytrain.

Google Maps will be helpful in telling you the skytrain or subway you need to take. 

For this trip to pick up your train tickets from the 12Go Asia office, select the Hua Lamphong station as your final destination.

So your actual route may vary with transfers, but taking the MRT will look something like this, if you have no transfers. 

 

Once you get to an MRT station…

You’ll go to a ticket machine.

There’s an English button, and then you basically just follow the prompts.

You’ll select the Hua Lamphong station as your destination.

This touch screen isn’t the best, but if you have problems, eventually you’ll get it. 😉 

Then once you’ve selected Hua Lamphong, pay the amount given in cash.

And then out comes a “token”!

Now you are ready to head for the ticket gate.

At the ticket gate, you will basically “swipe” your token to get through the ticket gate.

Which basically means placing your token on the given area.

And then you’ll keep the token until you’ve reached the Hua Lamphong station.

Now if you’re going direct from picking up your train ticket to getting on your train, how to get to the railway station?!

 

Although the railway station is across the street from the 12Go Asia office, it’ll be best to go back underground to get there.

Otherwise, it might be a bit challenging to cross the road.

This time, once you’re back underground, you’ll take exit 2 to get to the railway station.

This will be clearly marked as the Hua Lamphong railway station exit.
