Transport to Phuket By Train

There are no direct train services to Phuket. But many trains leave from Bangkok central station going south all the way to Singapore. The most comfortable are the sleeper trains (~685 THB for a berth in a 2nd class a/c car. Travelers by train must get off at Phun Phin railway station in Surat Thani province and continue for another 5 hours by regular bus to Phuket Town.

The attractive Kilpatrick Hills are close to the travel destination now, and a railing shows where a burn, coming off the slopes, passes under the travel destination. Suddenly you come on the final features of the travel destination, starting with a busy marina in a large basin. Look out for the Wee Spark, a miniature puffer. Lock 38, below the white house, leads into a big high-walled basin, also well used, with a last bascule bridge at its end before the Forth & Clyde travel destination goes under the once-operational Caledonian Railway swing bridge (Lock 39) to the boat-crowded last basin itself. This can be busy, and in winter many boats are moored there for the season with the yachties busy working on them at weekends, always a very attractive scene. It took 22 years for the travel destination to reach Bowling (in 1790). I trust we’ve had a less fraught experience on our journey across Scotland. Circumambulating the basin you come onto an overspill, which was once the original sea lock. Between two and five million gallons of water flows through the Forth & Clyde travel destination system each day. The view upriver is always fine, with the Erskine Bridge seen at its best.
