First I'll begin with a few shots taken in Bangkok in the days prior to boarding the train.
|One of the major temple complexes in Bangkok|
|A young monk climbs the stairs going up to the temple|
Shanties along the river in Bangkok
The busy street markets
|Inside the train station in Bangkok|
There were many rice patties along the way
Rural farm houses
I caught site of these rural temple amidst the lush foliage -- reminded me of the gospel song "Church in the Wildwood"
More village settings
The journey continues with Malaysia by Rail>*
