Circumnavigating Hua Lamphong Station

Yesterday, August 31st, I had a free afternoon. I decided to take the subway to Hua Lamphong Station (the biggest in Thailand and the terminus for all major routes) and strike out in a new-to-me direction.

The weather was cooler than it’s been lately. Of course that’s relative. For most people in the world it would have seemed hot and humid. But I am used to it now.

I intended to walk to Bobae Market and take the Khlong San Sabe ferry home but I didn’t get that far. Instead I walked all around the railway station, seeing the working side of the railway.

The station lies on the western border of the Pathum Wan district of Bangkok. I walked mostly through its neighbour – Pom Prap Satttu Phai.

It’s definitely not a tourist area, nor much of a historical one. But for me it had tons of interest.

Here’s a Google Earth map of my walk:
