Thai Train noodle πŸš‚ 🍜

WAY BEYOND PAD THAI @waybeyondpadthaiMarch 2019 Β· 3 min read

I'm not too sure if this way of selling food is common in your country. In Thailand, when you're on trains travelling across the provinces, there're tons of these people get on the trains carrying stuffs around to sell when trains stops to pick up more passengers at train stations.. Soda, coffee, snacks, or even the food that could be an actual meal.

I love traveling by train

This time when we went from Thonburi Station to Kanchanaburi, we took Thai train! An open-air one. Not that dreamy as you might be imagining right now. Still, it was a lovely ride!

On the way just as usual, at most of the train stations, there were people came up to sell stuffs. Most of the stuffs were just as normal price as they're supposed to. Some were 3 times more expensive as they sellers try to take advantage of you. (They know you can't do much when you're thirsty/hungry on a train). Though, some were so surprisingly inexpensive.

$0.30 Noodle

One of the things we're actually expecting as we had read the review on the internet before. Those experienced travellers recommended we grab a few packs of these noodle on the way from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi. To be exact, it's at Nakhon Pathom Station!

This lady walked around with a basket full of packs of noodle. To make sure if it's really the same one that we read the review before, we ask 'How much is it?'

'10 THB ($0.30)

Yes! That's the one!

No one sells food, especially the actual food like this, for 10 THB no more. 'Well, she does! and to be honest, probably the cheapest one I have ever eaten for a long while.On the packs, stamped simply 'Nakhon Pathom', the city we stopped at.

We got quite a few of them as you know, the size's not that big due to the super duper cheap price it's sold. I had 2 myself and that's just the perfect amount for the 95lb person.

Noodle, meat ball, bean sprouts, green onion

I personally didn't like it that much as it's a bit bland and sweet. Though, I would totally recommend you give it a go because.. why not? :)

Another fun small moment on a Thai train jouney. If you have never been on one, do it. Thai train would give you the total different aspect of traveling by train! Get a pack or two of the noodle if you're going to/from Kanchanauri! xx

Address : Nakhon Pathom, Mueang Nakhon Pathom District, Nakhon Pathom 73000, Thailand

I too love travel by train in Thailand. Depending on what time of year it is the regular open air cars are just fine. I actually find the air con ones to be too cold. It has been many years since I was on a Thai train but it is my understanding that the bar cars have been eliminated... which is a shame, those were lots of fun.
