Hua Lamphong, also known as Bangkok Railway Station, was the main railway station in Bangkok, Thailand. Now the station was relocated to the Bang Sue area. The station was opened in 1916 and has since become a major transportation hub, connecting Bangkok with other parts of Thailand and neighboring countries like Malaysia, Cambodia, and Laos. Hua Lamphong is operated by the State Railway of Thailand and served both local and long-distance trains. It is an important landmark and historical site in Bangkok, attracting many tourists and locals alike. There are still some trains running from this station.
For the 126th anniversary of the State Railway of Thailand, this week in the evening there are light shows highlighting the station building and the old trains.
And there are disco lights and fog machines! Here are some snapshots from the show.
