However only third class facilities are available in some local slow trains.
Apart from the domestic rail services, rail travel in Thailand also extends internally with trains connecting the country to Malaysia and Singapore. This is very cheap mode of transport. However, it is quite time consuming and a train ride to Singapore can take 2 days while a plane will take you there in just 2 hours. The Eastern & Oriental Express is a super deluxe train that offers brilliant facilities and takes the passengers on a luxurious journey. It is a lot more expensive than the ordinary train and runs just once a week.
