Dear Sir,

I've heard about new route of Bangkok to Pattaya 
You can visit Pattaya in one day : Depart Bangkok 06:45-09:50 // Return 15:50-18:55
You can check on website below.

Well, you manage train timetable from Korat-Bangkok on website below.

Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.

It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been
able to walk on water on their 18th birthday.

On that special day, they'd each walked across the lake to the pub on the
far side for their first legal drink.

So when Paddy's 18th birthday came around, he and his pal Mick, took a boat
out to the middle of the lake, Paddy, stepped out of the boat and nearly

Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety.

Furious and confused, Paddy went to see his grandmother .

Grandma," he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk across the
lake like me father, his father and his father before him?"

Granny looked deeply into Paddy's, troubled blue eyes and said, "Because yer
father, yer grandfather and yer great-grandfather were all born in December,
when the lake is frozen, and ye were born in August, ya fookin idiot!"

A man enters a confessional and says to the Irish Priest,

"Father, it has been one month since my last confession. I've had sex with Fannie Green every week for the last month."

The priest tells the sinner, "You are forgiven. Go out and say three 'Hail Mary's'."

Soon, another man enters the confessional. "Father, it has been two months since my last confession. I have had sex with Fannie Green twice a week for the last two months."

This time the priest asks, "Who is this Fannie Green?" "A new woman in the neighborhood," the sinner replies.

"Very well," says the priest. "Go and say ten 'Hail Mary's"

The next morning in church, the priest is preparing to deliver his sermon when a gorgeous, tall woman enters the church.

All the men's eyes fall upon her as she slowly sashays up the aisle and sits down in front of the Altar. Her dress is green and very short, with matching shiny emerald green shoes.

The priest and altar boy gasp as the woman sits down with her legs slightly spread apart, Sharon Stone-style.

The priest turns to the altar boy and whisperingly asks, “Is that Fannie Green?"

The altar boy replies ..."No Father, I think it's just the reflection off her shoes".

If you look up this url  "http://www.railway.co.th/main/index_en.html" (I was able to get this from Goggle).

Scroll down to "Timetable & Fares"

This time table cannot make connections (TIT), so make 2 distinct trips, I would check the Bangers to Pattaya first as there seems to be only 2 per day, then match up the Korat to Bangers train that gives you time in between. I have never ridden on the trains here but I would give at least an hour between trains for any delays.

Remember Google can be Ur friend, try goggling "Train delays in Thailand" to give you an idea of how much time to give between the 2 trains.

Bangkok’s BTS becoming too expensive for Thai passengers (The Thaiger today)

Perhaps someone remembers discussing about it here.

It still irritates me now, as it seems more and more users in the central area are making it pretty uncomfortable much of the time. At rush hour, it's not unusual to have to pass on the 1st train you are lining up for, but by the time I get to my stop, 5 stations away, it has lost half the passengers that boarded with me. I do wonder if some of these people switch to buses after leaving the train?
